‘Getting worse by the hour’: FNC reports Bergdahl renounced US citizenship
Twitchy ^ | 12:17 pm on June 3, 2014 | Twitchy Staff

Posted on 06/03/2014 10:02:03 AM PDT by Red Steel

" John Ekdahl @JohnEkdahl Follow If confirmed, this would be a bit of a game-changer. 9:52 AM - 3 Jun 2014"

That’s 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

OMG. https://twitter.com/jennafnc/status/473852493286633472 … he left us behind. This is a game changer. He should be happy we didn't drone him. 9:53 AM - 3 Jun 2014"

And why would Obama go all out to “rescue” such a man? I think we all know the answer. Because he’s a fellow-traveler.

He should be under arrest and I know of a vacancy or five at Gitmo where he can fester forever, never to see US Soil again.

RE: FNC reports Bergdahl renounced US citizenship

You can’t simply say: “I renounce my citizenship.” and then not become a US citizen.

There is a procedure to follow, papers to be formally filed, etc.

Eduardo Saverin ( co-founder of FACEBOOK ) and Singer, Tina Turner, both renounced their citizenships. But they followed the proper procedure.

SEE HERE, ON HOW TO DO IT:

Well, that must be why the Obama regime said (through the mouthpiece of Susan Rice) that Bergdahl served “with honor and distinction”.

Article 3, section 3, clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution specifies that the giving of aid and comfort to the enemy is an element in the crime of Treason.

And Obama negotiated with Al Qaeda terrorists for a deserter who renounced his citizenship.

RE: ....are you a bureaucrat or do you play one on FR?

I am an INDIVIDUAL THINKER, that’s all.

You can MORALLY say that I don’t want to be American any longer (and there might be some Americans who say that), but LEGALLY, that does not change your citizenship (yet).

So, this piece of news simply tells us his HATRED for his country. It does not change the fact that he is still American LEGALLY whether he wants it or not.

Looks like he only kept his citizenship so long as it would likely be of some use to him, or to get him out... then he kicked it to the curb.... what CRUD!

CBS News this a.m. actually covered the story fairly, IMO. They had interviews with soldiers who said right up front that he had deserted his post. Also highlighted the impact of releasing high-importance prisoners from Gitmo. Like the VA story, it looks likes it's gloves off for the MSM. The media coverup of Obama's lies has become so transparent, they are scrambling to retain a shred of credibility with their viewers.

Because he did not follow the proper procedure BY LAW.

If he really wants to renounce, NOW is his chance to do it.

Not only that, but even if Obama tried to show some level of objectivism and got the Marine released from Mexico, it’ll STILL have the look of desperation.

Plus, Obama will have a hard time finding five illegal aliens to exchange who’d actually WANT to go back to Mexico.

It’s getting easier to understand why Obama thought this deserter was worth five Taliban commanders. If Bergdahl was a true, blue, American patriot, Obama wouldn’t have lifted a finger to rescue him.

The whole thing is still NOT CONFIRMED.

Here is how FOX NEWS REPORTS IT:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/06/03/wartime-messages-to-parents-fellow-soldiers-reveal-troubled-bergdahl/

Sources who had debriefed two former members of Bergdahl’s unit told Fox News Bergdahl left behind a note the night he left base in which he expressed disillusionment with the Army and being an American and suggested that he wanted to renounce his American citizenship and go find the Taliban.

U.S. military officials would not confirm the existence of the letter, but if it does exist, it would likely be part of the original file on the investigation into Bergdahl’s disappearance.
