Thats putting it mildly.
If this report from Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin is true, the Bergdahl affair just got a whole lot stickier:
"Jenna Lee ✔ @Jennafnc Follow Great reporting from @JenGriffinFNC - new report: Berghdal left behind a note renouncing American citizenship...developing... 9:43 AM - 3 Jun 2014"
"David Shor @IshYimini Follow
he left us behind. This is a game changer. He should be happy we didn't drone him. 9:53 AM - 3 Jun 2014"

“Bad optics...very bad.”
It seems they thought they could get away with doing this as a yellow ribbon affair. Makes no obvious sense when it was common knowledge up and down the chain that this situation was toxic.
Now Hillary comes out saying it was tough, but the right decision. Some have suggested that Benghazi blackmail is going on. That might explain it.
It’s a Call Back thing.

Yes, there is some speculation on it over at Belmont Club:
If you go through the comments you will find some suggesting it as an explanation -— although some think the idea is ridiculous.
Who Says We Can’t Go Home America? Who Says? ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CeX5VEo10c
I didn’t read through all the thread so this may have been said already...
LISTEN CAREFULLY... There are NO game changers when it comes to this administration...
NOTHING WILL COME OF THIS! Who is going to hold the administration/Obama accountable?
Obama could declare martial law and that he is a dictator and he would still garner a 40% approval...
Unbelievable. This just gets better and better. Peeling the onion.
Actually I think Obama did what he did because,
1. No one can say he left anyone behind.
2. He wanted to get rid of the terrorist in Gitmo, Congress would not permit it, so he did it on his own.
He's a citizen?
This wag the dog, pure and simple.
Jennifer Griffin of Fox News is reporting that Bergdal left behind a note renouncing his US citizenship before going AWOL.
Jennifer Griffin is very credible. I can’t imagine her reporting this unless it’s 100% true.
Posting what I’d love to say will only get my post deleted and I’d probably be banned.
Well we know one thing..Bergdahl will make a great Dem Senate candidate..hates America, despises our military..and Code Pink is trying to contact his father, I mean really, what could possibly go wrong
I don’t give a damn.
When he is put on trial for treason then you and the Judge can sort it out because then it will matter.
You are still fixated on seat belt laws when folks are dead from a drunk driver.
Perhaps this is the whole idea..for Obama to declare Martial Law..he KNEW this guy was a traitor, he knew this guy hated America..did you see the smirk on his face when the bin laden looking daddy praised Allah in the Rose Garden, did you see that..he was grinning from ear to ear..this is all deliberate..Obama doesn’t give a rats ass about the next 2 years, he is doing everything in his power to destroy this country NOW before November
Its rather ironic this. Only recently the Obama regime launched a vicious attack on Republicans over the debt increase calling us terrorists, arsonists, unpatriotic etc etc etc. all that was projection!
Obama is just helping out a fellow non-citizen like himself.
Is that sound Team Clinton warming up their engines?
Barry and Bergdahl both need to be locked up at Gitmo.
I doubt it.
It's more likely that Hillary has decided to run against Obama, and lots of media types are still on Team Clinton.

BRANDED! Scorned as the one who RAN!
WHAT do you do when youre BRANDED....
Cause youre one of the TALIBAN????
IIRC, from the Ted Cruz citizenship debates a year ago, for a legal renunciation of US citizenship to take place it has to be before proper authority.
So, the letter describes Bergdahl’s intent, but it will be claimed that it wasn’t a legal renunciation, so therefore, he is still a US citizen.
And Bergdahl should be occupying one of them, while awaiting execution.
That means he’ll be turning down the roast pork, ham, and bacon. In sharp contrast to one Englishmen who was held captive in the Sudan in the 19th Cen. He “converted” but secretly ate pork whenever he could get his hands on it.
Any chance that Obama will renounce his citizenship?
Now that assumes he even has U.S. citizenship.
‘And why would Obama go all out to rescue such a man? I think we all know the answer. Because hes a fellow-traveler.’
I think it is all about the release of his fellow Muslim terrorists. They are said to be very dangerous fellows and he releases 5 for one deserter. Only makes sense if you view it as an effort to help the terrorists world wide.
“an effort to help the terrorists world wide”
....to kill Americans. In uniform or out.
‘Quick...tell everyone youre Gay.’
Would work better if you tell em you’re a Muslim gay Marxist.
Oh so this swap was so Obama could suck up to the Taliban, Obama’s main goal was to give them their top leaders back and had to show the US got at least something in return, so used the schmuck being “freed” thinking the American people would be so enamored with his hostage negotiating skills that we wouldn’t notice he flew to Afghanistan to negotiate with our enemies, oh and out a CIA chief in the process
Well which is it? An “oversight” or there wasn’t sufficient time because of concerns about his health? They need to coordinate their lies better.
> If true,the least problematic supposition is that the U.S. did not set out to obtain Bergdahls release. The likelier scenario is that the Taliban was seeking the release of its people and offered up Bergdahl as cover for Obama. The question is then,why were we negotiating with the Taliban in the first place and what was the real quid pro quo?<
If it gets bad enough look for the next diversionary scandal. Probably either the Obama outing himself as a homosexual or having homosexual “feelings” or that he has decided to “become Muslim”. Either or both of those will move us onto the next scandal in this “scandal a week” weak president.
“...Any chance that Obama will renounce his citizenship?...”
Kenya? Not a chance. He needs a place to go hide when he’s out of office.
‘....to kill Americans. In uniform or out.’
That’s the way I see it too.
‘Maybe this will finally backfire on the Obamaroids...’
I believe this is just another distraction away from the Embassy attack and the EPA ruling that will decimate the middle class and industry in this country.
He does this every time he needs us to take our eye off the ball.
What really pisses me off is to realize just how many people it must take for all of this to take place. They’re all traitors.
The big question is “why” did the government do this?
Obama thought he would have his “Mission Accomplished” moment in the middle of the VA scandal.
Hannity gave him his excuse when he said he believes Bergdahl must be suffering from PTSD. I figured the democrats would say this but I didn’t think Hannity would bring it up first. Though I shouldn’t be surprised.
Also, I’m sick of people saying “We’re happy he will be reunited with his family.” Cowards! What about those who died trying to find this traitor? Their families can never be happy!
Bush appointed Condoleeza Rice who as a female minority was popular with some liberals so the Obama administration had to utilize Susan Rice to show that they had a minority female involved in national security issues. Since they had no actual faith in Susan Rice Obama had to think for himself and this got him in trouble. Thus is is Bush’s fault for having a high ranking female minority in national security.
