Details Emerge About Taliban Prisoner Bowe Bergdahl That Are Truly Disturbing

When Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was reunited with his family after five years in Taliban captivity last weekend, the nation joined in the celebration. Almost immediately, however, concerns regarding the circumstances of his release began to spread.

The Obama administration agreed to release five suspected terrorists from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for the American, a move Republicans say could embolden Islamic militants.

“What does this tell the terrorists?” Sen. Ted Cruz asked. “That if you capture a U.S. soldier, you can trade that soldier for tive terrorists.”

GOP leaders also complained that Obama did not provide Congress with a required 30-day notice before approving such a transfer.

As Sen. John McCain – himself a former prisoner of war – suggested, the five released prisoners were “the hardest of the hard core” terrorists, suggesting they could have been “responsible for the deaths of thousands.”

After the initial issues emerged, even darker allegations against Bergdahl himself began to surface. Just days before he was reported missing, he sent an email to his father, Bob, indicating he felt he was fighting for the wrong side.

“I am sorry for everything here,” he wrote. “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.”

His commander was a “conceited old fool,” Bergdahl continued, noting his disgust at being associated with the U.S. military – and even the nation in general.

“I am ashamed to be an American,” he wrote. “And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

Reports indicate he subsequently deserted his fellow soldiers, leading to the deaths of multiple individuals involved in a rescue and recovery mission. Once in Taliban custody, the terrorist organization used him in propaganda videos in which he criticized the American government.

Capping off the saga surrounding his release, reports this week indicate Bergdahl – a man who made it clear he wants nothing to do with the U.S. Army – is now on the fast track to a military promotion.

While individuals across the nation justifiably celebrate the reunion of this family, many contend it is foolish to ignore the other aspects of this soldier’s story.

  1. Everyone needs to phone and email their congressmen and demand O be held accountable

      Doesn’t work that way neleh.

      • Linda From NY says:

        Hi Josh,
        It does not hurt to try and remind these representatives that they work for us, and remind them that there is always the next election and if they can't hacket then they can get their jacket

      • RacerJim says:

        It used to…before Obama.

        • Linda From NY says:

          Hi RacerJim,
          and it can still work, writing letters it still may work if we keep the pressure on, just to day I signed a letter/petition that was sent to me by Operation American Spring site and it went to 3 of my representatives and a copy to Obama.

          every thing helps, it is good that these corrupt officials know that American citizens are tired of the corruption and the lawlessness.

          • josh c. says:

            What democratic congressmans…..? You may not like it but in order for this impeachment process to work, we need democrats! So, why bother? They love Obama, they hold a majority in the Senate, and they’re only 17 seats from control of the house, not many republicans stand behind the tea party, plus, odds are even on Obamacare. I also heard about a new argument that democrats will use to win southern seats…… very concerning!

  2. I can understand the parents love for their son, however the bargaining chips are all on the Taliban's side. They made America look very weak and foolish. 5 for 1is bad odds in any game of life, especially when the one was a walk away from the safety of his base and right into the hands of the Taliban, and the 5 we released are hardened enemies of our nation, and there need be no doubt that they will be back into the heat of the battle to destroy our nation. It is unbelievable that America would be represented by a person in the White House who is more beholden to our enemies than he is to the nation that elected him president. A mistake that can only be righted by his impeachment.

  3. As a Veteran I oppose any promotion of this Deserter. Doing so he is responsible for the klives wasted in searching for his hide. His father sounds like a Muslim as well. He was used as a pawn by this Administration to be used asan excuse torelease the Muslim Leaders from Guantanamo Base. Those involved from both sides are Muslims. Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He pretends to be a christian but he lies. That is why no Fatwah was issued on his head as is the Sharria Law.. ~Rick Magee, "MOLON LABE"

    • Funny, how fast the tea party would turn against veterans……

      • If they are deserters, traitors, or those like, they turned on us, not the other way around, but of course to your liberal illogical mind, you could neever know the difference. You probably think John Kerry is a hero.

      • Linda From NY says:

        Hey Eli,
        The Tea Party is NOT turning against Veterans, the Tea Party does Not appreciate deserters and traitors, do you think you can wrap your pea brain around this one?

        • How is he a deserter!? He was held captive by terrorists for 5 years! Plus he was afraid to die, everyone is! I also think that soliders shouldn’t be forced to fight if they don’t want to.

          • RacerJim says:

            He was on guard duty in a combat zone, put down his weapon and ammo, and walked off into the sunset. THAT makes him a deserter. That you don't think soldiers should be made to fight if they don't want to makes it as obvious as obvious can be that you don't have any idea of what it takes to be a soldier.

          • Edwardkoziol says:

            Racer next you'll see him on the Sunday talk show telling about how great the taliban is along with his father.

          • asmeseesit says:

            Hey Eli, did soldier boy volunteer to join the service, or did his parents make him join????? Soldiers learn to fight….that's what soldiers do. And your comments about the Tea Party are idiotic too. Educate yourself before commenting or just shut up.

          • Linda From NY says:

            Hey Eli,
            If the moron would have stay in his post and NOT wonder off to bitch about how he was fighting for the wrong side, he would never had been captured. And instead he put his guys in danger and some of our soldiers lost their lives trying to get back this scum.

          • Do you also think pilots should not fly is they don't want to???

          • Eli…Do you also think pilots should not fly is they don't want to???

          • Ruth:
            Would you not want to jump off a building if someone put a gun to your head?

            Get the picture? -_-

      • RacerJim says:

        Obutthole has been against our Veterans from the day he was born.

  4. Linda From NY says:

    I found this disturbing article in OAS Site written in regards to this so called prisoner, it sounds more like he deserted and felt that he was fighting for the wrong side. This was a letter written to inform that he is a deserter and a traitor.

    “Don’t believe any fanciful garbage you read about this deserter we just got from the Taliban. He was an enemy sympathizer that abandoned his men and his post and sought to join the Taliban. We just gave up 5 of the Taliban’s top guys so that we could get a traitor back. I was over there when he deserted and we stopped everything in order to find him."

    "The entire country went on lockdown and countless assets were sent to find him. I know that several good men died trying to get him back. He told the Taliban everything they wanted, and then helped shoot their propaganda videos."

    "This guy deserves a court martial. He’s a disgrace to the uniform and the mainstream media would never allow such news that would tarnish their King Obama’s lackluster foreign policy and diplomacy record, It’s all about the optics After posting to my Facebook page that I had some explosive information on the prisoner exchange, I was sent this link from another soldier testifying that Sgt. Bergdahl is a deserter."

    "Bowe Bergdahl’s dad praises allah, makes Islamic declaration and call for the release of all Gitmo Terrorist.”

    • Edwardkoziol says:

      Linda Obutthole gets to be a bigger disgrace every day he is in office.Now the jig coddles deserters and I hope the people remember this when that fat old hag Hitlary runs.She is another Obutthole.

      • Linda From NY says:

        Hi Edward,
        yea I know what a disgrace Obama is, just when you think he can't get any lower, he turns around and does some thing even lower. How much lower can the man go?

  5. What should "We The People expect when there is a fraud and usurper sitting in the White House going by the name of barack hussein obama using a stolen social security number , forged birth certificate and forged selective service registration card to prove he is a legal sitting US president . You are going to get a traitor like this Bergdahi !

  6. Obama is a Muslim. His actions speak for themselves. He released 5 of the most dangerous Muslim terrorists and an American soldier who is apparently a Muslim convert. Is this a knee jerk reaction to the VA scandal and obama's desire to "look" like he givesadamn about American veterans? Or is this action based on his hatred for the American people and our country? These men will surely be coming after our troops and all the rest of us. It's too bad we didn't trade obama.

  7. Eli you are one stupid SOB. And you dam surge never served in the military. There is this thing called General Orders. You can not quit your post till properly relieved. He went AWOl after making statements against his country. He needs to go to a Article 32 Hearing and Court Martial. His back pay needs to be stripped from him. He then has a nice room in Gitmo waiting for him.

  8. THE MAN IS EVIDENTLY INSANE..HE THINKS HE IS ASHAMED HE IS AN AMERICAN WELL i AM ASHAMED THAT HE IS AN AMERICAN TOO…HE NEEDS IMPRISONED FOR DESERTING THE MILITARY….
    OBAMA NEEDS IMPEACHED FOR RELEASING TERRORISTS, BRINGing HOME MILITARY DESERTERS AND PROMOTING THEM WHILE HE IGNORES AN INNOCENT MARINE IN A MEXICAN JAIL.
    Obama is a replica of the events in the garden of Eden..He like the serpent is teaching men his perverted twisted version of what is good and what is evil..

  9. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    obama announced that he won’t go to war for anything (except to protect his muslim brotherhood brethren), he gave the go ahead for international chaos. obonehead is so dumb he thinks this is a “prison” swap and not a hostage for terrorists? And now no American is safe in the middle east? obama left Iraq and Afghanistan (thousands of Americans died because he didn’t believe in those wars) to al Qaeda and even helped almost kill the “chief-of-station”. He left Israel in danger, because he wants to help arabs. He has left Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Syria in chaos, because he wants to support the arab spring and make the muslim brotherhood in total dominance in the region. Now Egypt, Libya, Saudi Arabia, North and East Africa, and all of the Middle East are seeking new allies like Russia or China. obama doesn't care about anything (or any country including our allies) but his agenda to make America communist. obama has pissed off more people in America and in the world than any other "leader" in history, we can only compare him to Idi Amin who went into exile after destroying Uganda, then he was hunted down and killed. Our enemies know that under Obama, you can kill his personal representatives as well as any American and get away with it scot-free. The world’s aggression is a direct byproduct of Obama's inept foreign policy that denies American exceptionalism and withdraws American leadership.

  10. Edwardkoziol says:

    Did anyone with half a brain think that Obutthole would do what ever he could to bolster the Taliban after all some drones got some top leaders.Jarrett came to him with a list of the types of people they need to carry out the destruction of America and Sambo gave up 5 taliban big wigs for 1 stinking desserter.I think Birgdahls father is an American taliban and his mother forgot to wear her burka.After the father gave his speech in camel humping Obutthole hugged him because that is what muslims do.

  11. When this guy quit his post, this did not happen in a vacuum, he no doubt spoke to many around him and all knew he was a turncoat… The person who sent people out looking for him was a fool and put more people in harms way to find a deserter, for no real reason… Now, some five years later we have another fool who trades 5 hard terrorists for this deserter…. For what….? And now they want to promote him in rank instead of giving his the metal he so justly deserves…. Obama is once again showing who he is……

  12. And now he will have access to all sorts of weapons and can create another Fort Hood. I guess the Jihadist-Muslims (same thing really) watched Showtime Series "Homeland" where a captured us soldier from the middle east comes back – with a few changes (prayed rug, etc).

  13. mutantone says:

    when those that served with him are prevented from talking about it it is nice to know that : "Bergdahl was assigned to OP Mest about 5 miles south of FOB Sharana with the orders to conduct watches over enemy activities of nearby villages. According to Cox, within 24 hours, there was no doubt that Bergdahl had gone AWOL amongst the Battalion and “deserted his unit in a combat zone.” Just week’s prior, Bergdahl had sent most of his military uniform home to his family and at some point during the night Bergdahl grabbed a knife, a comp**** water, camera and took off. He left behind almost all of his personal items including all of his gear and bulletproof vest. "
    so it was not "While on patrol" as Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl stated.

  14. Annoyed American says:

    I think this traitor needs to be held accountable. Better men than him have died BECAUSE of him. And while we are at it, I say Obama needs to be impeached. I feel sorry for the next presidents to come. It will take decades to clean up this "leader's" messes. I am still proud to be an American, but I am ashamed of how Obama has made us ALL look.

  15. There is something wrong with the Obama administration if they're going to promote a "deserter"! I think Bergdahl needs to face a military board of inquiry and court marshalled if he is guilty of any crimes!!!

  16. dump obama says:

    Obama should be arrested immediately and imprisoned util he is tried and put into prison for treason. This Muslim is an enemy of all Americans.
