UPDATE: Major General Kenneth R. Dahl, Deputy Commanding General, I Corps Joint Base Lewis-McChord, has been appointed to carry out what is known as an AR 15-6 investigation and compile a report on the disappearance of Sergeant Bergdahl. The report will be sent up the chain of command, and it could lead to administrative or nonjudicial punishments, or court-martial or maybe the report will fade away like Fast & Furious or Benghazi. Superior officers could also conclude that no punishments are warranted. I ask you to consider the kid gloves Bergdahl is being handled with compared to the rapidity Navy Seals were subjected to Court Martial and scores of Patriotic Generals, Admirals, Captains and Colonels were summarily fired! General Dahl pictured below.
I haven’t had much to say about Bowie Bergdahl, his parents or the President doting over all of them. However, after reading a CNN article that made my head swim and my stomach churn, I decided to do what all the government investigators in the world cannot, or will not do, sort out the facts for you, my friends.
I will begin by presenting a little background about the Bergdahl family. The Bergdahl’s reside in Hailey, Idaho, a town of about 8,000 where Demi Moore moved to raise her children. Hailey was also the birthplace of Ezra Pound, an expatriate American poet and critic who helped discover and shape the work of contemporaries such as T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Robert Frost and Ernest Hemingway. Hailey is County Seat of Blaine County, a deep blue county in the midst of a sea of red counties in the red state of Idaho. The town planed a welcome home extravaganza for Bowe and yellow ribbons adorn signs and trees along the main drag.
Bowe was home schooled by his mother. The family attended Sovereign Redeemer Presbyterian, an Orthodox Presbyterian Church. He received a GED certificate through the College of Southern Idaho in his early 20s. As an adult, he studied and practiced fencing and martial arts before switching to ballet classes. He never owned a car; he rode his bicycle everywhere. He spent time in a Buddhist monastery between 2007 and 2008. It was reported by the Taliban in 2012 that Bowe Bergdahl had converted to Islam and was teaching its jihadists how to make bombs.
I think we can all agree that Bowe is a complicated and somewhat confused young man who is searching for his place in the universe? So what happened in Afghanistan? Did a Taliban raiding party capture young Bowe and drag him kicking and screaming into the dark Afghan night? Clearly he was not captured but left his weapon, his kit, and other sensitive items and abandoned his post during wartime taking only some water, a compass and a knife. Shortly after deserting, some afghan kids saw an American walking north asking for directions to the Taliban. Soon after, voice intercepts confirmed that he found the Taliban. That is when his unit realized, “the kid deserted his post, snuck out of camp and sought out Taliban.”
Soon after, Bergdahl’s fellow American soldiers were placed under a gag order that threatened them with legal action if they spoke about Bergdahl’s desertion. I hope you have been keeping up with the scores of Generals and Admirals Obama has fired recently in his purge and Bergdahlization of the Military.
Bowe found his beloved Taliban, now what? I don’t trust anything the Obama Regime or the Taliban says but here is what the Taliban reported that is corroborated by released US secret documents dated August 23, 2012, “conditions for Bergdahl have greatly relaxed since the time of the escape [from the US Miltary]. Bergdahl has converted to Islam and now describes himself as a mujahid [a military force of Muslim guerilla warriors engaged in a jihad]. Bergdahl enjoys a modicum of freedom, and engages in target practice with the local mujahedeen, firing AK47s. Bergdahl is even allowed to carry a loaded gun on occasion. Bergdahl plays soccer with his guards and bounds around the pitch like a mad man. He appears to be well and happy, and has a noticeable habit of laughing frequently and saying ‘Salaam’ repeatedly.”
Did I mention that just before Bowe deserted he exchanged emails with his dad? Bowe wrote: “I am sorry for everything here. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid… In the U.S. Army you are cut down for being honest … but if you are a conceited brown-nosing sh– bag you will be allowed to do whatever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank … I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”
His father responded: “OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!”
Just last month the Pentagon announced it is reviewing claims that U.S. soldiers were killed in the course of the years-long search for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, Oh goody, Obama’s Army will get to the bottom of all this!
With Bowe happily cavorting with his Taliban buddies, things did start to happen. Fighting increased, IEDs and enemy ambushes increased. IEDs started going off directly under the U.S. Army trucks where they would do the most damage. They were getting perfect hits every time. Their ambushes were very calculated, very methodical. While soldiers were out looking for Bowe, friendly camps and positions were attacked. The whole region was impacted. Bergdahl knew where the trucks would be going and when. He knew about movements, locations, tactics, weak points on vehicles and other things that the enemy could exploit. The soldiers were incredibly worried that Bowe was passing this information on to his captors in order to help them place their bombs most effectively.
While Bowe was target practicing with AK47’s and dining with the Taliban, the United States Army promoted him to Sergeant or “handed him his rank.” National Security Advisor Susan Rice said that Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction.”
I guess as time wore on and the Taliban didn’t see fit to make Bergdahl Head of the Supreme Council even with his ballet dancing experience, a plan was hatched to let him go back to the America he hated so much. The Taliban demanded the release of these specific commanders in exchange for Bowe. Here is the Taliban Dream Team President Obama poured out on the world:
Abdul Haq Wasiq, served as the Taliban deputy minister of intelligence. He reportedly used his office to support Al Qaeda “and to assist Taliban personnel elude capture.” He also reportedly arranged for Al Qaeda personnel to train Taliban intelligence staff.
Mullah Norullah Noori, a senior Taliban military commander, described as a military mastermind who engaged in hostilities against U.S. and Coalition forces in Zabul Province and has close ties to Taliban leader Mullah Omar and other senior Taliban officials. Noori, who was named as the Taliban governor for the Balkh and Lagman provinces, is wanted by the United Nations for war crimes including the murder and torture of thousands of Shiite Muslims.
Mullah Mohammad Fazi, former Taliban Deputy Defense Minister and senior commander who served as chief of staff of the Taliban Army and as a commander of its 22nd Division. He’s also wanted by the United Nations on war crimes for the murder of thousands of Shiite Muslims in Afghanistan.
Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa, is the former governor of the Herat province and had close ties with Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar. He represented the Taliban during meetings with Iranian officials seeking to support hostilities against US and coalition forces.
Mohammad Nabi Omari, held multiple leadership roles in various terror-related groups. He worked border security for the Taliban – a position that gave him “access to senior Taliban commander and leader of the Haqqani Network, Jalaluddin Haqqani, During the early 1990s, he ping-ponged between Taliban-related positions and others, including a stint as a used car salesman.
While Bowe was with his chosen buddies, his father grew a long beard and learned to speak Pashto. I doubt than any of his customers would recognize the former UPS delivery man, An unbelievable moment in American history occurred in the White House Rose Garden when President Barack Obama smiled very perceptibly as Robert Bergdahl uttered the famous Islamic war cry of victory for Allah, “bismillah-al-rahman-al-rahim.” According to Barack Obama, “The most beautiful sound in the world is the Islamic call to prayer.” At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte where the Democrats loudly booed God, an ancillary event featured two hours of “Jumah” or Friday prayers. The Democrats expected thousands to attend but were disappointed when less than 50 showed up.
If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, you may not be a liberal America hating Democrat? Bowe Bergdahl is what passes for an American Hero in the Obama Democratic Regime. In my book, Bergdahl deserted his post in combat, collaborated with the enemy and deserves a Court Martial and probably execution. The President and his minions who negotiated with terrorists should be ostracized by every patriotic American and every news organization. Obama made EVERY American a target everywhere in the world.
To investigate, much less to try Bowe Bergdahl, despite the fact that evidence of his misconduct continues to mount, would require an honest president, a robust opposition party, and a media determined to uncover the truth. Strike one, strike two, strike three.
I am not aware of ANY communications between Bowe Bergdahl and his parents since his release and return to duty in San Antonio. I don’t know if a State Dinner is in the future or the Medal of Honor? Perhaps Bowe Bergdahl will receive the Nobel Peace Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom? Do you remember that Navy Seals were arrested and remanded for Court Martial for what was probably a self inflicted cut on the lip of a terrorist they had captured? Are you sick of this yet?
