Bowe Bergdahl & the Taliban 5: Obama’s US Negotiates w Terrorists & Makes Every Soldier a Super-Target; Questions About Bergdahl

By Debbie Schlussel

**** UPDATE: DISGUSTING: Bowe Bergdahl’s Dad Praises allah, Makes Islamic Declaration, Calls For Release of All Gitmo Terrorists; Did Bergdahl Convert to Islam? ****

For more than a decade on this site (and previous to that), I’ve repeatedly decried Israel’s ridiculous and absurdly lopsided releases of hundreds to thousands of Palestinian Islamic terrorists in exchange for soldiers in the single digits, some of them coming back in body bags. I always said, well, that is the one thing America is doing right that Israel isn’t. America doesn’t negotiate with terrorists, and it doesn’t release murderous Islamic terrorists in exchange for kidnapped American military men. As of yesterday, that is no longer true.



Barack Obama’s America has adopted Israel’s worst response to terrorists, and like Israel, Obama has now turned every American military man and woman into a super-target to be kidnapped for a trade. Every Islamic terrorist in American prisons–not just in Gitmo, but every prison in America is now no longer there for life. Whether it’s the Blind Sheikh, Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman, or Gazi Abu-Mezer, a HAMAS terrorist who tried to blow up New York’s subways and nearly succeeded. Even 9/11’s master architect, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Any of these can be traded–will be traded–in exchange for kidnapped Americans.

Yesterday, Obama said that he did this because no man or woman serving America in the military is forgotten and we will always come back for them. That’s the same thing Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said during each of his releases of hundreds of blood-thirsty Islamic terrorist murderers for one live soldier, Gilad Schalit, and in other cases, the dead bodies of soldiers tortured to death by Hezbollah. And, even, in another case with another Israeli Prime Minister at the top, the live body of Elchanan Tanenbaum, an Israeli drug dealer and double agent who gave Israel’s secrets to Hezbollah. Countless Israeli leaders have made these outrageous trades. And now Obama has joined this exclusive club of which no one should want to be a member. No one who cares about the survival of Western civilization and the welfare of Western troops and civilians. Today, Israel’s cabinet voted on a bill to end these kinds of terrorist releases and “trades.” We’d be best advised to do the same in Congress.

Yes, Bowe Bergdahl served his country, and we should have made every effort–short of negotiating with Islamic terrorists and releasing their fellow Islamic terrorists–to get him freed. Navy SEALs taking him out was the only way this should have been done, and if we couldn’t locate Bergdahl (which was apparently the case), more drones and bombings of the Taliban. But Obama has rewarded the Taliban further for “negotiating” the release of five of their most hardened murderers and planners of mass murderers of Americans, by stopping drones attacks on the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Well, Rand Paul and his mindless band of lumpenconservatariat idiots should be happy.

And there are questions–a lot of them–about Bergdahl. I don’t question his patriotism going into the U.S. Armed Forces or his service and going to Afghanistan when he was called to do so. But nobody knows why he left his guarded, protected base, alone (and against the rules)–making himself a sure target for kidnapping. He has a lot of questions to answer. And there are a lot of questions about what happened in his five years of captivity. His father reports that Bergdahl is having problems speaking English. You don’t just forget English in captivity. Something is very wrong here. Did he convert to Islam a la “Homeland”? Does he now prefer speaking the language of his captors? A lot happens in five years of captivity with Islamic terrorists. I pray for the best, but you never know.

Some might argue that we are releasing dangerous, hardened terrorists from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for nothing, on a regular basis, and we might as well trade for the freedom of an American serviceman we cannot locate. Well, that’s a good argument. George W. Bush and Barack Obama practiced dangerous Gitmo catch-and-release on a regular basis. But we’ve now given an incentive to Islamic terrorists to do more of their own catch-and-not-release. Good luck with that.

The Haqqani Network segment of the Taliban with whom we negotiated and whose leaders and masterminds and killers-in-chief we just freed is the most violent, anti-American force we’ve been fighting for the decade in Afghanistan. These cretins have the blood of thousands of American men and women on their hands. And now their ghosts cry out as we’ve freed their killers to go back and plot to kill Americans again. These were not low-level guys like Bergdahl. Read about these freed major scumbags, Khair Ulla Said Wali Khairkhwa, Mullah Mohammad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq, and Mohammad Nabi Omari. They were high-level leaders, the mast planners of mass murders of American servicemen, now freed to do it again. These were associates of Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, and they are laughing at us in their new freedom. Hey, now, they can take selfies of their celebration and post them on Instagram for all the American infidel suckers to see.

And, last but not least, it’s laughable to hear the Obamapologists claim this doesn’t constitute negotiation with terrorists because they used the Islamic anti-American government of Qatar (still nominally an “ally” but not really) as a middle man. PUH-LEEZE. If you negotiate with terrorists, that isn’t vitiated by using a middle man.

It’s just a pathetic excuse. I wish I could say, this policy is pathetic, too. But it’s not pathetic.

It’s very dangerous to America. Lethal. And fatal.

Memo to Tony Orlando: no more yellow ribbons round the old oak tree needed anymore. That’s passe. Now, we just release mass murderers in America’s new warped definition of “swap meet.”

Today it was five for one. How much will it be next time? Ten for one, one hundred for one, one thousand for one? Insanity.

“A lot happens in five years of captivity with Islamic terrorists. I pray for the best, but you never know.”

You are quite right. Bergdahl’s disappearance was quite suspicious. It seemed to be more akin to desertion than kidnapping. I hope that Bergdahl is not a ticking time bomb that will go off in the form of some public massacre.

I have a feeling that the Obama Administration was looking for a cheap way to boost its popularity in recent months. Engaging in an ill-advised trade of five terrorists for a suspect soldier would suit Barack Obama nicely. He has been more than happy to sacrifice the national interest for the sake of political expediency in the past.

Jerry G – Spot on! You really hit the nail on the head!!

Just Me on June 1, 2014 at 9:17 am

In 2012, Rolling Stone magazine quoted emails Bergdahl is said to have sent to his parents that suggest he was disillusioned with America’s mission in Afghanistan, had lost faith in the U.S. Army and was considering desertion. Bergdahl told his parents he was “ashamed to even be American.” Well. this could be why Obama has a kinship with Bergdahl. Bergdahl thinks the same way as the first lady.

    Bergdahl seemed to be more like a deserter when he was captured five years ago by the Taliban.

    Worry01 on June 1, 2014 at 9:46 am

I think the more important questions is, did the administration promise not to drone the 5 released Taliban out of existence as part of the deal?

Adam on June 1, 2014 at 9:37 am

a sign of capitulation… on the road to subjugation…when will we start pushing back ?

I’m happy for Bergdahal & his family. I really am. But this is NOT the way his release should’ve been obtained. Anyone who thinks that releasing the men who helped form the Taliban’s alliance with AL Qaeda will result in ANY sort of peace is the dumbest freaking person on the planet. Seriously. If anyone reading this post thinks that, do the world a favor & dine on a bullet. Its lethally (literally) stupid moves like this that will result in attacks on the homeland.

These guys didn’t all of a sudden become Jeffersonian Democracy’s biggest fans while in the clink. Islam is diametrically opposed to it. And no one can tell me that Delta or Dev Gru couldn’t have eventually gotten this guy out. But, of course, we have the “kinder, gentler” foreign policy of this “president” & his “enlightened” minions. And may G*d save us from them.

Yes, I’ve seen reports that Bergdahl converted to Islam. I think this is the case.
Anyway, Obama simply needs a politically acceptable way to free terrorists and Bergdahl provides this and is quite happy to provide it I think in all probability.
Converts often travel to Islamic countries to pick up knowledge and immerse themselves.
Bergdahl has the added bonus of assisting jihad while doing it.
I don’t think Bergdahl was ever captured.
Obama knows how to pull the strings of the patriotic American public quite well.
Patriotism makes it so easy for him he barely has to try anyway because he knows quite well how much people want to have him on board.
Unfortunately this is one of the last mistakes the old America will ever make.

I think Bergdahl was well on his way to where he was going long before he left his post.

Frankz on June 1, 2014 at 11:27 am

It’s not really enough to disapprove of what’s being done. Disapproval is the assigned role for people who disapprove.
It’s what they’re supposed to do.
Understanding the end goal is what’s important.

Oh, I just saw…
Apparently Bergdahl’s father tweeted that he was working to free the Guantanamo prisoners.

This is why Obama wakes up laughing everyday.

Frankz on June 1, 2014 at 11:46 am

I am not sure how to digest this news yet. There are way too may unanswered questions surrounding this man. The Haqqani organization is not invincible and could have been easily infiltrated. That is if we really wanted to.

Steve Gardality on June 1, 2014 at 12:58 pm

The Haqqani organization has a very public face in Afghanistan. They did get a good deal for sure. Wonder how much money our government gave them in addition to the freed Afghanis?

Steve Gardality on June 1, 2014 at 1:03 pm

Enlisting in the Army doesn’t alone doesn’t make one a mensch. There were scumbags, perverts and criminals aplenty when I was in for my hitch.

DS_ROCKS! on June 1, 2014 at 4:27 pm

BTW, what maobama did was illegal. By law, he had to consult Congress on this matter. Susan Rice, Carney, and the White House is saying that Bergdahl’s health was so bad, that they did not have time to consult Congress? Not that anyone in Congress cares that again, their power has been usurped.

unholyone on June 2, 2014 at 9:57 am

Yeah he is a Muslim. He deserted his post. His dad is a dhimmi. Obummer violated the law and Hagel is just plain ‘ol out of his league as SECDEF.

jake49 on June 2, 2014 at 11:07 am

Why didn’t (POS)OTUS use a hashtag to free Bergdahl? Oh, yes…he needed to free his brethren in Gitmo.

Now that Bergdahl is free, perhaps Hillary will ask him to be his running mate 2016 since he, like her husband, both loathe the military.

Pats on June 2, 2014 at 11:35 am

2:1 Bergdahl Jr. retains a terror friendly lawyer. He’ll only be charged with AWOL vice desertion; no declaration of war.
It is well known that for decades, inner city gang members “serve” to learn tactics, weapons handling, and other assorted warfighting techniques among other benefits of their “service.”
Didn’t AG Holders former law firm represent GITMO detainees? (Not certain)
To paraphrase Pres. Obama during the press conference announcing Bergdahl’s “release”- we leave no man behind… (nearly choked on my dinner when I heard that)
…and Ft. Hood was “workplace violence.”
Something is rotten in Denmark.
