WAR! Fox News Vs. The Pentagon In A High-Stakes Showdown Over Bergdahl And Obama’s Cred

Bergdahl

Fox News stands resolutely by its report. The Pentagon labels it “patently false.” In essence, as Bill O’Reilly concludes, the Defense Department is calling the Fox News source “a liar.”

So, what’s the truth? Is the Army about to charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion? Will Bergdahl soon face the music for willfully abandoning his post in Afghanistan?

As Politico reports: “The Pentagon vigorously denied reports on Tuesday that the Army is preparing to charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion, stressing the top commander reviewing the case has made no decisions.”

But Fox News, along with other organizations, says a decision has been made and that Bergdahl’s lawyer has been given official papers on the matter. The Army acknowledges that its investigation into the Bergdahl controversy concluded months ago, but inexplicably the Defense Department has still not announced any findings or charges.

“Such charges, especially if they led to a court-martial, would kick up a political hornet’s nest following the intense criticism of the deal that led to Bergdahl’s release,” the Politico post says.

In a highly unusual move, the former military intelligence officer who claimed on Monday that Bergdahl would be charged with desertion was back on The O’Reilly Factor Tuesday night to double down on his bold assertion.

Despite the Pentagon’s adamant push-back, retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer told Bill O’Reilly that not only would Bergdahl be charged, but also that the White House was stalling and stonewalling to try to mitigate a potential political disaster.

“Shaffer, who believes the White House’s alleged decision to delay its announcement is politically motivated, added that he stands by ‘all of those facts,’ referring to his report on Monday that Bergdahl’s lawyer has been given a statement of charges.”

Bergdahl was held by the Taliban for five years before, in a highly controversial deal, the Obama administration swapped five Gitmo detainees for the sergeant’s freedom from captivity.

Shocking: Watch This Toddler Show Just How Terrifying Radical Islam Is In Only 44 Seconds

childwithak47

In many American schools, if a child points his finger like a gun, or shapes a Pop-Tart into a pistol, or wears an NRA t-shirt, the anti-gun folks will overreact with threats of suspension or worse. However, in Afghanistan, a three-year-old will threaten a cameraman with his very own AK-47 just for filming him. A BBC cameraman was talking to a Taliban toddler at his village outside of Kabul when he asked the boy what he was going to do with the gun. The boy replied,

“I’m going to shoot people, tak-tak-tak.”

The boy asked why the cameraman was taking his picture. The cameraman told him,

“We are taking your picture because you are sitting with a gun.”

The boy responded with, 

“Then watch out, I’ll shoot you. Now my father comes and he’ll beat you up.”

Video: SEAL Team 6 Was Set Up





On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter—Extortion 17, carrying thirty-eight men, including seventeen of the elite SEAL Team 6—was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan. It was the worst loss of life in a single day suffered since the Afghanistan war began.

Per a 1300-page military report, it was simply the result of a “lucky shot” by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building.

According to family members of those murdered, it was no lucky shot. It was an inside job that may have included elements within our own government up to the highest levels, including the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama.

Why did they have to disappear?

These were the same Navy SEALS who took part in the Osama Bin Laden raid that, despite the passage of almost two years, is still shrouded in mystery. Over a year ago, the government watchdog group, Judicial Watch, sued the Obama administration for the release of documents, photos, and videos relating to the raid and alleged burial at sea of Bin Laden; but thus far, the Obama administration has refused to comply. Seymour Hersh, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, recently said that the story of the Bin Laden raid was “one big lie.”

Watch this exclusive video by Western Center for Journalism in which we pull the curtain back to show how SEAL Team 6 was set up—more than likely by our own government.

American POW Languishes in Afghanistan – Bureaucrats do Nothing





Afgan Prison

Just what is holding up the release from captivity of the only American POW, Sgt. Bowe Robert Bergdahl, 27, of Ketchum, Idaho?  Is this 27 year old American soldier now a ping pong ball in the Afghanistan-US peace talks?  Or is he being held as a bargaining chip between our State Department and Senate because of President Obama’s aim to close Guantanamo Prison in Cuba?    His efforts are being thwarted by a Congress which doesn’t want it closed?

And, if as the Taliban supposedly demands, America must release five prisoners being held in Gitmo before Sgt. Bergdahl can be freed, how come “two Algerians held at Guantanamo Bay prison for a decade have been returned to Algiers?”  And what about this in the same AP report: “There are still nearly 90 prisoners who have been cleared for release or transfer from the prison out of the total population of 164.”  Just what is going on here, and why is an active US soldier being left to languish somewhere around the Afghanistan–Pakistan tribal border area while State Department employee Jen Psaki smiles?  How come this 34 year old woman, who can be contacted at www.linkedin.com/pub/jen-psaki-23/549/79, can remain as the Benghazi Survivors spokeswoman, but can’t tell Congress directly what went on with that sorry saga?

Reporter Paul Shinkman in two reports during June of this year quotes Taliban member Shaheen Suhali, saying “the US first has to release detainees (five) from Guantanamo Bay to build confidence,” before anything can go forward on the release of Sgt. Berkdahl.  One video allegedly quotes him as saying, “Release me, please.  I’m begging you. Bring me home.” But trying to get this picture to load is difficult.  The same reporter says Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in September reiterated that everyone is doing everything they can.  Sure, right you are.  Well, then why isn’t something happening?

We used to have a promise in the US Military that no soldier would be left behind.  Well, here’s one that is left behind in the Obama administration’s war of words, and Jen Psaki appears to have an awful lot of control over something that is well above her pay grade.  Where are the statements from our generals, our Pentagon leaders, anybody, anywhere?

What is being done to bring this suffering American soldier home to his family and friends in Ketchum, Idaho?  His parents are afraid to speak out “so as not to jeopardize their son.”  But are the people in control really doing anything?  I’m sorry, but this mumbo jumbo rhetoric of the other guy working on it is an insult to Sgt. Berkdahl, to other soldiers putting their life on the line for this country, to his parents, to the legacy of MIA’s in other wars that just somehow fell through the cracks of an American system that seems able to cherry pick what prisoners they release.

How would these ineffectual politicians and bureaucrats feel if they were imprisoned somewhere in the wasteland of Afghanistan?  Have leaders on both sides simply lost their own humanity?  Bring Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl home now!  Don’t let him be just another wrist bracelet on an unknown arm who prays for him, to no avail.

Muslim Sympathizer, Terrorism Enabler, And Yes…Traitor

Obama for treason 225x300 Muslim Sympathizer, Terrorism Enabler, and yes...Traitor

At first take it sounds so incredibly ridiculous as to be unworthy of serious consideration, but the more you look into the matter, the more the conclusion becomes inescapable: Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim sympathizer who enables terrorism, aiding our enemies, and thus, he is worthy to be charged with treason.

In the beginning we should have read the signs: from the apology tour to bowing before the Saudi king, to the declarations in Cairo and refusing to directly reference a “war on terror,” this man has demonstrated preference for America’s enemies, denigrating the U.S. and her allies at every turn.   The heart of Obama is measured in the words of his pastor for 20 years, Jeremiah Wright, who proclaimed:  “God Damn America.”

Obama has orchestrated the leaking of classified information to hurt our country and help our enemies, making himself look good to retain power and forward the agenda: knock down American interests to build up global government.

Obama left Iraq prematurely and we see the resulting destruction: a country once poised to be a beacon of freedom in the Middle East, now a nexus of terrorism, a vassal of Iran.  Telegraphing the end game, Obama has handed Afghanistan back to the Taliban and al Qaeda.  Pouring weapons into Syria, he helps Jihad annihilate Christians, arming thugs who now murder women and children with great efficiency.   These are not accidental failures.  They are purposeful, calculated developments designed to shame the U.S., and forward the cause of Sharia in the world.

Obama just released $500 million to Hamas, a terrorist organization whose mission statement is the annihilation of Israel, a group thoroughly coordinating with Iran.  That’s on top of $147 million he sent to Hamas last year.

Obama overthrew Mubarak in Egypt, unleashing violence, death and turmoil in that country for the last two years. Then he armed the Muslim Brotherhood, embraced their members, and appointed them to positions of authority in our own government.

Do we even have to mention Benghazi?  And now the embassy retreat throughout the Arab world, showing cowardice and weakness, once again.

Add all this to the increase in attacks on the homeland, negligence in securing our borders, increases in homegrown terrorism, and efforts to promote Sharia in America, and the unbelievable becomes the unavoidable reality: the President of the United States is the enemy of the United States.
