‘No reason to believe’ Bergdahl collaborated with Taliban captors, Army officials say
West Hawaii Today / The Washington Post ^ | June 26, 2014 | Stephanie McCrummen

The Army has “no reason to believe” that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl collaborated with his Taliban captors during his five years as a prisoner, as some have speculated, and he has not said anything that might incriminate him in other misconduct, Army officials said Wednesday.

A two-star Army general is currently investigating the exact circumstances of Bergdahl’s 2009 disappearance from his post in Afghanistan, which led to his capture by the Taliban-allied Haqqani network.

Investigators have not yet interviewed Bergdahl, who was released May 31 as part of a controversial prisoner exchange with the Taliban. He is now living at a San Antonio military base, where specialists are helping him reintegrate into society after his prolonged captivity, some of which he spent locked in a cage.

Some of Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers have speculated publicly that he may have collaborated with this captors while he was a prisoner.

Army officials said Wednesday that they had no evidence of that so far, an assessment based on an earlier Army investigation conducted just after Bergdahl’s capture as well as on what Bergdahl has said so far to members of his reintegration team....

No reason to believe IRS targetted conservatives...

No reason to believe Obama was born in Indonesia...

No reason to believe Thad Cochran won with fraudulent votes...

No reason at all, you foolish peasants

The only way this could be true is if he had no information to share.

I have a real good “reason to believe”. He’s a deserter who went over to the enemy. Any questions?

Isn’t that the truth. The battalion had his number and kept him in the freezer. Apparently, his “hosts” feltvthe same and shunned him too. A pathetic case all around. He should have never joined up. But with that dad of his, well, it explains a lot.

Thread winner.

You could also have said he was spontaneously-inspired by a YouTube video for the same points.

From first paragraph:

“”The Army has “no reason to believe” that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl collaborated with his Taliban captors...he has not said anything that might incriminate him in other misconduct.””

Two paragraphs down,

“Investigators have not yet interviewed Bergdahl, who was released May 31.”

Lord, help us.

In other words, the Army — under orders from the White House — will not pursue charges against Bergdahl and will allow him to quietly leave the military with an honorable discharge and full benefits. B

He simply walked off the Army’s compound to mingle with the locals and found himself in a Taliban camp for five years. Happens all the time. Nothing to see here.. move along.

Is there a snow balls chance of an honest investigation, or will pigs take flight training first?

Yes. I guess all those sequestered, intense ‘reintegration’ regimes the Army was doing for him was to avoid looking for anything he did wrong.

If they would not allow anyone with any integrity to question him about his going missing, etc., how could they ‘interrogate’ him about his captivity?

My guess is the one and only question they asked him was, “Tough break there Bowe, I’m sure you were a good boy during your stay, weren’t you?”

It seeems the only justice, for this treasonous snake, is to re-unite him with his unit buddies, and host them in an undisclosed off-duty Marine bar, and clear the area of all newsmen and bloggers, till dawn.

POWs get extra benefits, such as free dental care, that almost all other veterans do without.

Given the kinds of treatment traitors and deserters get in the military recently, I sadly have zero desire to serve, and don’t envy them either. It’s really sad, but it’s also true. Bergdahl deserted at the very least. Sometimes I wish that they could apply Civil War Union justice to deserters. But nowadays, politicians will do anything, including reward deserters.
