US Govt Concluded Bowe “Abdullah” Bergdahl Was Deserter Back in 2010; Converted to Islam, Taught Taliban to Ambush US
So, despite claims that it’s merely “speculation” that Bowe Bergdahl–now “Abdullah” Bergdahl–is a deserter (he deliberately left his base without a weapon or armor, but took his diary–and a number of troops in his unit say he deserted), the Obama Administration had apparently concluded Bergdahl was a deserter four years ago, and yet went ahead with the ridiculous, lopsided Gitmo trade for Bergdahl anyway (thanks to reader Duane for the tip):
The Pentagon concluded in 2010 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching the military curbed any high-risk rescue plans. . . . But the former Pentagon official said it was “incontrovertible” that he walked away from his unit. The military investigation was broader than a criminal inquiry, this official said, and it didn’t formally accuse Bergdahl of desertion. In interviews, members of his unit portrayed him as a naive, “delusional” person who thought he could help the Afghan people by leaving his army post, the official said. . . .
Nathan Bradley Bethea, who served as an officer in Bergdahl’s unit, said in an article Monday on the Daily Beast website that Bergdahl was not on patrol, as some reports have suggested.
“There was no patrol that night,” he wrote. “Bergdahl was relieved from guard duty, and instead of going to sleep, he fled the outpost on foot. He deserted. I’ve talked to members of Bergdahl’s platoon_including the last Americans to see him before his capture. I’ve reviewed the relevant documents. That’s what happened.” Hagel, visiting troops in Afghanistan, was met with silence when he told a group of them in a Bagram Air Field hangar: “This is a happy day. We got one of our own back.”
And, yet, despite that conclusion, Bergdahl was promoted TWICE! while in captivity. HUH? Instead of promoting this deserter, they should have been preparing his court martial . . . the only reason we should have worked for his release. And, yet, as I noted yesterday, the government has already decided that five years was enough for the six lives of American soldiers he cost and countless other lives lost because we traded top Gitmo terrorists for him.
A captured American soldier is training Taliban fighters bomb-making and ambush skills, according to one of his captors and Afghan intelligence officials. Private Bowe Bergdahl disappeared in June 2009 while based in eastern Afghanistan and is thought to be the only U.S. serviceman in captivity. The 24-year-old has converted to Islam and now has the Muslim name Abdullah, one of his captors told The Sunday Times.
A Taliban deputy district commander in Paktika, who called himself Haji Nadeem, told the newspaper that Bergdahl taught him how to dismantle a mobile phone and turn it into a remote control for a roadside bomb. Nadeem claimed he also received basic ambush training from the U.S. soldier.
It’s disgusting, given all this, that Susan Rice–the Obama Administration’s Goebbelsette–would say this al-schmuck “served with honor.” HUH?
THIS. IS. WEAKNESS. Back in the day, Bergdahl would have faced the music. Today, he’s dancing a jig to the music. While those who died for him can’t make a move or say a word. They are gone forever.
The U.S. Armed Forces . . . No Deserter Convert to Islam Left Behind.
Exit Question: What exactly did Bowe Bergdahl do to “help the the Afghan people”? We already know what he did to “help” six Americans to their eternal sleep.
Exit Question #2: Was Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion and conversion to Islam his way of rebelling against those ballet lessons his parents made him take as a kid? Just askin’.
