Author’s note: As much as possible, I have refrained from editorializing and let these compelling quotes speak for themselves.
“We can’t understand why our country would deceive us and the rest of America like this. It’s just unbelievable.” –Jimmy
“I wish there was a way to forgive this government for what they’ve done to us. I’d like to be able to think that the White House was sacrificing us for a bigger national security success. But they’re not. They’re only interested in themselves, winning elections and the retention of power.” –Ron
“We all want Bergdahl prosecuted and executed. He cannot be allowed to get away with this.” –Jimmy
“There’s no doubt whatsoever remaining, in the minds of most American military and Pentagon personnel, that this President and his political allies, hate war. They’re running away from every post-9/11 conflict which were started because 3,000 Americans were killed on that day 13 years ago and our country was under attack. So it’s clear they hate war and by extension, they actively hate our military.” –Pentagon official
“To us, it’s treasonous to conduct secret meetings with the Taliban in Germany and Qatar in 2011 as this administration did, right before the election. If the American voters had known that our President and his staff were having ‘peace negotiations’ with our Taliban enemy and had shifted the negotiations to releasing terrorists for Bergdahl, what do you think the voters would’ve done? Voted in a new President, that’s what.” –Pentagon official
“Few people know that Bergdahl’s father was directly communicating with the Taliban to get his son released. He was sending top Taliban terrorists messages with the Quran quoted and of course, changed his appearance to look like a fellow Muslim. Hell, he also sent a coded message through to the Taliban from our Rode Graden. This is also treason.” –Pentagon official
“What this government has done with Bergdahl, is eerily like Benghazi. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Americans are killed in a faraway place. The news media is all over it for a few days or a week or two. Obama comes out and says he’s outraged and the perpetrators will be found or toots his own horn as a hero. And then nothing happens until the next scandal pops up. In Bergdahl’s case, Obama tried to play the hero by ‘bringing our hero home.’ But as we’ve already proven, Bergdahl’s a traitor committing treason. The final similarity is in the cover-up that follows both Bergdahl and Benghazi. That’s what the American people really need to know about, look at and get angry about.” –Ron
“They’ve been cutting budgets to our military and VA since 2009, while overspending on their pet projects like Planned Parenthood, Solyndra, Obamacare, open borders and food stamps. I guess they think our soldiers, seamen, marines and airmen don’t notice that they loathe us and use us only when it benefits their political schemes. Well, they do. And we in the Pentagon know where all this government’s skeletons are buried. And they stupidly treat us like dirt? We want the American people to know the truth now.” –Pentagon official
