Posted on 06/05/2014 1:13:19 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The Taliban found Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl walking alone, acting abnormally and cursing his countrymen before they captured him in Afghanistan in 2009, two men who were Taliban commanders at the time told NBC News on Thursday.
They said that Afghan locals first informed fighters about the soldier, and then the fighters rushed to capture him.
Our people at the time couldnt understand his language, but it was after he was shifted to a safe location, he said he wasnt happy with his countrymen, but he didnt intend to convert to Islam or join mujahideen (holy warriors), one of the commanders said.
The commanders said that Taliban officers first thought it was a trick perhaps an American soldier sent out alone to spy on the enemy.
As we never saw their soldier patrolling alone
we would ask him how he managed to walk out of his base, one of the commanders said. He would tell us that it was personal issue.

Now the Taliban are covering for him.
Think he had deserted his army with a mission and wanted to accept Islam, but our people didnt trust him. That shattered his belief, he (Taliban commander) said.
Obama probably got word out to his buddies in Afghanistan.
Not exactly. I think they’re just telling the truth. We’re not used to that here.
Come over here and they will find his countrymen cursing him.
Shouldn't be surprising, considering the close relationship they have with the current occupant of the White House.
I think they are stretching the whole concept of “capture” here.
Bowe thinks he's going all peace-corps and these folks would welcome a foreigner with open arms just like in the cartoons, but that wasn't the reality. Instead of doing peace-corps stuff, he was thrown into a compound and kept like a pet dog. He couldn't integrate with the military and he couldn't integrate with the Afganis. Let the liberal we-are-the-world types learn a lesson from this.
Doesn’t anyone read THE UGLY AMERICAN anymore?
“Now the Taliban are covering for him.”
personally I think it be reporters that be covering for him, in an attempt to back Obama, they will write fake story using fake sources
Bowe wanted to become a community organizer.
Very well played.
Here it comes ... PTSD.
So that’s why the CIC went out of his way to break the law and set him free!
He will always be cursed!
I’m wondering if this isn’t Obama’s 2014 election strategy. Do something so stupid the Republicans will have to react then come out with some other version and make it look like they jumped the gun.
Just wondering, it’s odd that he threw all the Dems under the bus with this. Even odder that Reid said so what.
And we believe the Taliban why?
But Bowe Bergdahl became a very good Dhimmi - do you suppose he paid the annual jizya poll tax promptly and willingly?
Might seem strange unless it's part of their deal with Obma.
LOL. Good one.
This is the report Rosen was talking about last night.
He may be an sob, but he’s our sob. What Taliban reports is nothing to me.
His Afghani countrymen? That might explain Obama’s concern for Bergdahl’s safety. /s
As strange as it sounds I believe the Taliban...what if he is a doofus/deserter. Imagine them coming across him walking thru the countryside alone...cussing at the world....My god you can’t make this up if you tried.
It had to be Bergdahl. The Afghani boys knew that this was a strange bird, an anomaly and went to tell the soldiers what they saw.
Court martial the bastard and then death by firing squad. That would be the perfect world though.
The “countrymen” he was cursing was his fellow soldiers. I wouldn’t call that “covering for him”.
There is talk that Bergdahl LEFT A NOTE to his squad members telling them that he was deserting and that he will not fight for America any longer.
We need to produce that note as evidence IF IT EXISTS.
You can’t make it up. I can’t make it up.
The question is whether the Obama Administration can make it up, and whether the Taliban would follow their lead.
And note that to even be able to ask sucha a question means that this situation is so far out into the Twilight Zone that even Rod Sterling would be dizzy by now.
Why not? Obuttwipe loves him some TAH-lee-Bahn!
From the Pile it Higher and Deeper crowd, AKA Muslims. I have two words: Bull S—t.
Personally, I think he collaborated with the enemy. They are protecting him by making this the narrative. I don’t for a minute think the Taliban are telling the entire truth.
The tipping point for this will be if The Grand Imperial Kenyan knew about this before choosing to free the 5. But on the other hand, the jellyfish posing as Republicans will probably do nothing.
They won't, but they should. Traitors are traditionally screwed once they turn. Benedict Arnold was a case in point. One side hates you, both sides despise you, and nobody trusts you.
Sounds like it should be Liberalism 101. But since liberals detest history (except as a tool to wield power as it suits their needs) they wouldn't have learned this.
Then you’re a blithering idiot.
I think he collaborated with the enemy too and I base that primarily on info supplied by the Taliban. What was said here doesn’t really ameliorate his actions at all.
LOL He and 0bama seem like birds of a feather alrighty.
Yep. Their five guys are under what is, I suspect, a very genteel house arrest in Qatar. Bergdahl is in U.S. hands. For the moment that's an edge. Supposedly it will last for a year. In practice it will last until they "escape".
0bama still has a good deal to bribe them with, including concessions in the ongoing negotiations that are the real object of this ridiculous charade. If I were them I'd be on a rug five times a day with my butt in the air thanking Allah that the U.S. is being led by such a creature as Barack Hussein 0bama. Whether it's incompetence or malevolence or both, he's their boy.
Well thanks for that!!! HA!!
Screw you lazy crapweasel.
Wow!! How un-Freeper like!!
So are you just going to continue to call me names and try to insult me???
How FReeper like is that?
Have I insulted you..called you names? Nope.
I'll let fellow FReepers decide.
I'm done with you.
You made the accusation, can’t back it up, expect others to do that work for you and now you’re whining like a little girl for being called out on it. STHU, jerkwad. You’re nothing but a toothless yapping chihuahua of a man.
Thanks once again...sister for being such a fine FReeper.
