Skip to comments.Photo Shows Bergdahl Smiling w/Top Taliban/Al Qaeda Commander

To understand how bad this chummy photo is, you have to understand how bad Badruddin Haqqani is. The Haqqani Network has done the most damage to the US in Afghanistan and Badruddin Haqqani was one of three brothers running it.
He was declared a terrorist and targeted by a drone strike. The Haqqani Network is something between Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Its Al Qaeda links have made it much deadlier than the ordinary Taliban and with Al Qaeda hardly present in Afghanistan even toward the end of Bush’s term, the Haqqani Network is the next best thing to it.
It is for all intents and purposes the top terrorist organization in Afghanistan.
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban for nearly five years, is seen in a new image mugging for a picture with a jolly jihadi who has his arm resting casually on Bergdahls shoulder.
The bro-hug was posted Wednesday to the Twitter account of someone associated with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, according to Fox News.
The supposed captor was identified by The Middle East Research Institute as a since-slain Taliban commander, Badruddin Haqqani.
Bergdahl, who was taken prisoner when he mysteriously drifted away from his unit while on patrol in Paktika province, sports a grin in the photo.
The tweet accompanying the image gives a shout-out to the Army sergeant, who was freed in exchange for five Taliban soldiers released from captivity at Guantanamo Bay by the Obama administration.
Haqqani was killed in a US drone strike in August 2012.
The photo once again backs up the claims that Bergdahl was mostly on good terms with his captors. We have yet to see a photo of him armed, but it’s not impossible that the Taliban could release such a photo as well.
They just got finished making mad, passionate love.
If Obama had two sons ...
And along with it, Badruddin Haqqani’s Facebook status was changed to “in relationship.”
No doubt who was just on top.
He looks hungry & scared to me.
If my murderous terrorist thug captors wanted me to smile for a photo, I just might oblige them. Not saying that he wasn’t glad to smile, just pointing out the obvious.
Pictures tell a lot...and the look on that guy’s face tells me he is truly happy and probably a poof!
You’re not supposed to point that out. You’re supposed to cheer on Greenfield.
Everything which CAN be proved and is factually certain about that kid spells out just HOW impressionable he is... how easily he could be influenced and led.
He looks compliant and content in this photo... because he was compliant and content...he was where he wanted to be, doing what he wanted to do!
This is simply an out and out lie. Bergdahl was not taken prisoner. He voluntarily joined the Taliban and helped them kill Americans.
Bergdahl never “mysteriously drifted away from his unit”. Everyone who was there says he willfully deserted his unit.
The photo looks like a Taliban with his girlfriend. Bergdahl was probably gay. He probably had a sexual relationship with his Taliban friends.
With each other or the Same Goat???????????
Bowe Bergdahl:Obongo’s Kind Of Soldier!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He is clean shaven. Where is his beard ?
“He looks hungry & scared to me.”
THIS EXPLOSIVE 6 MINUTE VIDEO may help explain some of this insane BS.
Hell, it explains ALL OF IT!
“Youre not supposed to point that out. Youre supposed to cheer on Greenfield.”
I know, I know. I was hesitant about spoiling the party. But I have this thing about truth. Guess I need help.
Who else has been captured by these guys and lived to smile about it - either an obliging or a genuine smile?
You two act like trolls paid to act as a team. I won’t tell you why, so you don’t learn what makes the identifiable scent.
That’s funny. I guess the tell was my other post this morning in which I gave a link to contact RNC and let Priebus and Co. have it re McDaniel and Cochran. Now that you were so clever as to blow my cover, I will have to go underground and adopt a new name. By the way what is the going rate for trolls, just so I know not getting cheated.
I have no doubt that Baghdad Bergdahl is a deserter and probably a collaborator; but that photo proves nothing to me.
Taliban flipping the bird at Obama using Twitter.
I’d laugh if it wasn’t so scary.
I just don’t see anything in this picture except a guy who is very uncomfortable to be there, and trying not to look scared.
Looking furtive, scared and suspicious to the point of paranoia; That seems to be his most natural expression. Another trait he shares with his father, who has been accused of stalking and disturbing at least two young women.
Perfume doesn’t always cover the scent.
Lips and shoulders look relaxed.
Conflicted Bergdahl or just bad at having his picture taken! Is that other dude throwing a gang sign?/s
JM very HO!
Your comment: “That photo proves nothing to me.” Is in direct contrast to your graphic showing Michael Jackson at the height of his creepiness. Maybe your juxtapostion = Irony and admission of agreement.
I’ve been spreading perfume for years. It took somebody with your intellect to uncover me. Nothing more dishonest or weaker than somebody who refuses to admit he is wrong. Very unmanly and insecure.
“By the way what is the going rate for trolls, just so I know not getting cheated.”
I was wondering that, too
“Adm. James Stockdale is a far superior example of proper behavior while in captivity.”
Not everyone is Admiral Stockdale.
How obvious is that?
Really. People are going so far here as to discredit d greenfield. There’s no better correspondent
In the us military, it is not like some guy broke into your house
Bergdahl deserted to go hang out with these guys
But as a pow, you don’t jump through hoops for these guys
Do people not know that?
Greenfield is not egotistical.
Plus, he has a basic awareness of the code of behavior of an authentic pow
And This is not it
Butt hole buddies......
Stockdale is an example. There were 600 VN POWs. Not one acted like bergdahl not one wandered off base looking for the enemy. And the only person smiling for a photo op wit the north Viet nam troops was Jane Fonda. That’s whom I think of when I see this Fonda photo
Eh. The only AMERICAN smiling, that is
The attitude some posters come in with has an odor all its own. The odor of an agenda, and in this case it’s to discredit Greenfield. A scent dripping with self-congratulations.
There is an eight letter word that comes to mind when seeing this photo. Starts with C and ends with E.
That’s some goal
The MAD magazine cover shows that Alfred E. Neumann is indeed "worried" as he stands next to MJ. The pic of Bergdahl and his captor was purportedly showing that he was BFFs with his captors. I think it may well show that he is scared and is smiling the nervous sort of smile as Alfred E was. And the poses are similar. So, my comment is in line with the graphic. The obnly way your comment makes sense is if Alfred E is, in fact, not worried.
It’s possible to be “not Admiral Stockdale” without also being “cheerful collaborator”.
As I said, he looks scared & hungry to me.
I’ve seen scared and hungry.
I’ve been scared and hungry.
He’s not scared and hungry.
Yeah. It’s bizarre for “conservatives”.
“Haqqani was killed in a US drone strike in August 2012.”
If I could caption that picture: I told him that I would respect him in the morning and the dhimmi fell for it.
