Report: Bowe Bergdahl Wrote a Note Saying He Wanted to Renounce His American Citizenship
The Blaze ^ | 6/3/14 | Zach Noble

Posted on 06/03/2014 10:42:29 AM PDT by jimbo123

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl wrote a note expressing a desire to renounce his American citizenship, according to Fox News.

Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin reported Tuesday that members of Bergdahl’s unit said he left behind a note saying he felt disillusioned with the Army and wanted to renounce his citizenship before he was captured in 2009.

Griffin reported that the note has not been made public, nor been provided to Fox, but is part of the body of evidence being examined in the classified investigation.

There have been a number of questions surrounding the deal to release Bergdahl in exchange for five Guantanamo Bay detainees, including whether Bergdahl really got lost or was actively looking for the Taliban when he was captured.

My conspiratorial nature is causing me to think he actually would welcome impeachment proceedings, because it would unify and motivate the Leftist base just as it did the last time we had a criminal-in-chief in the WH.

Doesn’t matter if he renounces his citizenship, he was never discharged from the service, so he is still under Army jurisdiction.

Thanks for the links. Amazing. So WHY did he enlist? Didn’t the Tarot tell him it was dangerous? Perhaps that was the reason — dangerous in a compelling way? (”Hurt me, please.”) Who can figure out such twisted minds?

I have to say, however, that I lived in San Francisco for ten years and know for a fact that not all male ballet dancers are gay. Baryshnikov has three children, Peter Martins of the NY City ballet has two.

Obama could get caught filming a gay snuff film with underage boys in the Oval Office and still wouldn’t be impeached.

Probably win a Golden Globe too.

“So how does that work with the Army? If he renounced his citizenship, can the Army still court-martial him? Does the Army have any authority over him at all at this (non-citizen) point?”

Non-citizens have been serving in the military since the founding of the nation. About 8000 non citizens enlist every year. http://usmilitary.about.com/od/joiningthemilitary/a/Immigrantenlist.htm

In fact the current POTUS is about to allow illegal immigrants inside the US to enlist in the armed forces:

And now so do the citizens of Idaho. I wonder what will happen to him there.

He'll move. Maybe out of state, maybe out of country. Detroitistan is a possibility, or Paterson, NJ.

Yeah, I don’t believe all ballet dancers are homosexual, I don’t think Bowe was either but I don’t think the mooselimbs cared. He was just a weak, pretty, dancing boy for them.

I’m pretty sure they did what they wanted with him. Bowe was a jackass that caused other men to be killed because of his foolish and selfish decision. For this Bowe should be punished harshly by the United States.

I suppose we will see if he has since changed his mind from the decision he made the day he walked off. I do believe the tears he showed— in one of those videos put out by the mooselimbs— were gut-sick tears. They were real and pained tears.

I feel bad anybody suffers but I have no sympathy for him. He made his decision and caused not only himself to suffer for his decision but caused others to die because of it. To hell with Bowe.
