Taliban Commander: More Kidnappings to Come After Bergdahl Deal
Time ^ | 6-5-14 | Aryn Baker

Posted on 06/05/2014 3:55:34 PM PDT by kingattax

A Taliban commander close to the negotiations over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told TIME Thursday that the deal made to secure Bergdahl’s release has made it more appealing for fighters to capture American soldiers and other high-value targets.

“It’s better to kidnap one person like Bergdahl than kidnapping hundreds of useless people,” the commander said, speaking by telephone on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media. “It has encouraged our people. Now everybody will work hard to capture such an important bird.”

The commander has been known to TIME for several years and has consistently supplied reliable information about Bergdahl’s captivity.

Unexpected?

Maybe to the lefties who thought that if we play nice, the other side will too.

But not to those who can see that Obama just made it profitable to kidnap Americans.

In that the US has now been in Afghanistan for over 13 years, and the number of successful kidnappings of Americans stands at zero...

Prior negotiations included cash demands for Bergdahl and prisoner swaps. Will someone please ask how much we gave in cash for him as well?

Five guys with nothing to do in Qatar need a good bit of throwing around money ya know.....

do we really think the sub-humans that obozo released are going to be sitting around Qatar for a year and doing nothing but reading “GoatHerder’s Digest” and putting their butts in the air all day ?

there should be no doubt that these maggots will be using computers and cell phones to plan and direct operations to kill American troops as soon as they can.

they don’t have to be IN Afghanistan.

Do they want a list? I can think of any number of Democrats that deserve a few years with the Taliban.

They can make the choice of willing collaboration, and survival, or being Progressive, IE, obnoxious, and getting their heads sawed off with a dull knife.

Either way, no great loss

Obama most likely issued them social security numbers, took out student loans for them, and will be sending them their EITC every January.

Oh yeah, free Obamaphones too.

A sad day for American when Americans, including the liberal media, can trust a Taliban leader to speak the truth more than they can trust the president of the United States.

When in doubt, trust a Moslem over a Marxist. Both practice Taqqiya (authorized lying), only the Moslems like to brag about their successes while the reds like to cover them with sweet words and Carney/Rice lies.

This would be a Taliban dream to grab an American Soldier as a hostage. Why ABC NBC CBS and the rest would go 24/7 “When is Obama going to do something?” (sarcasm)

Since they didn’t “kidnap” Bergdahl, then the next one will be the first.
