Skip to comments.(Stolen) Classified Documents re Bowe Bergdahl Capture (Compliments Bradley 'Chelsea' Manning)

(CRIMINAL EVENT) KIDNAPPING RPT B CO 1-501 PIR : 0 INJ/DAM
This apparently was one of the documents compliments of Bradly Manning's leaking. The timeline fits.
Assigned in 2009 to an Army unit in Iraq as an intelligence analyst, Manning had access to classified databases. In early 2010 she leaked classified information to WikiLeaks and confided this to Adrian Lamo, an online acquaintance. Lamo informed Army Counterintelligence, and Manning was arrested in May that same year. The material included videos of the July 12, 2007 Baghdad airstrike, and the 2009 Granai airstrike in Afghanistan; 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables; and 500,000 Army reports that came to be known as the Iraq War logs and Afghan War logs. Much of the material was published by WikiLeaks or its media partners between April and November 2010.

Initial read shows the claim of no discipline in the unit and also that he was not missed at muster for a long time has just been blown to hell. I never in my wildest dreams would have imagined I would have been considering thanking Manning.
“She leaked classified information to Wikileaks.”
Horse shit,Manning is a man no matter how surgically mutilated his groin is.
Ahhhh....those Opportunity Costs. Two drones sent in support. They could have been used for other missions.
The point is the document, not the whatever he/she/it is. Can anyone make more clearer sense of what this document is saying?
How do you account for Hilary being a former first lady?
Man,you sure know how to ask the tough questions.She was in a sham of a marriage with a true rotter who just happened to get elected President.(Thanks a hell of a lot there Ross)
Oooo that’s going to burn.
A creation of the media. Hillary is no lady and she has never been first.
Bergdahl is named later in the document.
She was somebody’s first......
Need the mind rinse to get that thought out of my head....
Wow. Thanks for post
Manning is a pussy no matter how mutilated his groin is.
Michael did not call it anything, that was added by me from a wikipedia article describing the time that whatever was able to have leaked this report.
Maybe I did it wrong, crucify me, not Michael.
Didn’t Bill say “It all depends on what the meaning of “she” is... “or something like that?
Whatever Hillary is Bubba thought a Chilean mummy would make a better date.
Id forgotten that one
This country produces a whole lot of heros,sadly it also produces some world class assholes.Care to guess where I place Manning?
Bad guy #1: They know where he is, but they keep going to the wrong ares.
Bad guy #2: OK set up the work for them.
Bad guy #1: Yes, we have a lot of IED on the road.
Bad guy #2: God willing, we will do it.
Of course, the next thing the bad guys talk about is how they kidnapped Bergdahl while he was using the latrine, so take it for what it's worth.
Pasting pg 3/8, overheard where/how (!) bergdahl was picked up. He is not very smart.

// Bad guy #1: Yes, we have a lot of IED on the road. //
Nice breakdown. And that’s how bergdahl endangers everyone, immediately and long term.
I thought the capture claim was realistic (”he was taking a expletive” and something like “he didn’t get to wipe yet”) - bergdahl was clearly not very smart on things.
There wouldn’t be a “latrine” outside the U.S. camp would there? You think that was mis-interpreted and he was just in the weeds taking his sh**?
Yes... and... tell us more....
Someone please educate me on how PVT Bergdahl, who the most knowledgeable sources say deserted, was promoted to SGT?!?!
Claims of no discipline??? I missed that. Jesus, how low will they sink?
He was promoted from PFC to SGT while in captivity.
I’m posting from a tablet. If you download the pdf and read about page six they talk about the Taliban demanding 15 of their guys to get Bergdahl back.
From the .pdf:
UPDATE: 0708z GREONIMO 3 REPORTS HAV EJUST FINISHED WITH THE KLE WITH 2 X ELDERS

UPDATE: 0713z GERONIMO 3 REPORTS THE RG-31 HAS STRUCK AN IED
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
WOW! So no one was asking for 5 top 'Generals' from GITMO? They just wanted some cash and maybe 15 ordinary POWs? This really is interesting...
Great find mazda77, thanks. Fascinating seeing all the time lines laid out like that and who was doing what when.
That’s how I took it.
He was off the base without his gun, having gone AWOL, and was apparently in lala land. The look on his face as he said something like “But... but ... I’m one of the GOOD guys! (Sputter)” woulda been priceless.
I don't think you can read it that way. Why are the 15 "ordinary POWs"? (My position is that the U.S. holds no POWs -- only illegal combatants, but we'll leave that be for a moment.) Is it possible -- just possible -- that the bad guys were thinking of the 5 top "generals" in addition to 10 other Taliban members and cash? If so, perhaps the Taliban didn't come close to their original offer.
This is evidence that Oliver North is flat out wrong when he said the kidnappers were only interested in money and not an exchange of terrorists for Bergdahl.
"They never once mentioned in all of the dialogue that occurred trying to get him back earlier, that they wanted anything but money. So somehow, this administration concocted the release of five very senior, very brutal terrorists."
Your version is certainly plausible. Perhaps the U.S. Army simply misinterpreted the intercepted communication. My first thought, though, was that these particular Taliban members / sympathizers didn't know exactly what happened and were making stuff up.
Then you would agree that the charge that he was “kidnapped while sitting on a latrine” would be and error? I figure the gov will try and use this as evidence he didn’t go AWOL but was taken against his will.
Julian Assange probably will make the Obama kill list for this
Is it common practice to promote deserters? Charles Robert Jenkins should have been a 3 Star General by time of his release (sarc)
Absolutely. The latrine claim is not credible at all. That's why I brought it up in the first place. My theory in comment #20 is that everything the Taliban said is suspect. The Army may have better evidence that the Taliban left IEDs on the road for Bergdahl's rescuers. Standing alone, this message leaves quite a bit of doubt.
In civilian terms it an initial report of Bergdahl being missing and a log of events of the unit attempting to find him.
Its a time line of events of what actually happened after he left the forward operating base.
Thanks. Missed your post 20 as the Manning chatter, sadly went on & on.
I suggest Mazda repost this in Breaking News perhaps — this is too important and lots of Freepers will miss.
Who is the “she” of which they wrote?
Stopped there, too confused.
“she” is who wikipedia refers to Manning, naturally.
Richard Pryor in “Some Kind of Hero”?
A human being with one x-chromosome and one y-chromosome is biologically a male. Who are these people? Science deniers?
Might refer to him as a steer or gelding out on the farm though, right?
Maybe even a wether just depending on wether the little fellow is feeling a bit sheepish or not...?
