Afghan villagers: Bergdahl acted
strangely after leaving base

Washington Post, by Kevin Seiff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/4/2014 6:13:03 PM

Among the most tantalizing mysteries surrounding Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s departure from his U.S. military base in 2009 is this: Was he trying to find the Taliban? Or did he simply wander away and get captured? Politicians and members of the military have criticized the Obama administration’s decision to swap five jailed Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, saying the soldier may have deserted. Until now, few details have emerged about the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance from his base. But The Washington Post has reached Afghan villagers who spotted Bergdahl shortly after he slipped away from his base. To them, it’s clear something was

Comments:
The more I read the angrier I get. The morale in the military must be at rock bottom because they are being led by an utterly disgraceful CIC.

How dumb do they think we are? If you go wandering around in rural Afghanistan, who do you think you are going to run in to?

The pen and telephone prez lived up to his threat - he called the taliban and said I need cover - give me Bergdahl and I will give you your guys back. Done deal.

There is no mystery in this incident. Valjar and group are a lawless empire that are going to do whatever they have to do to stay in power and get their way. The price America pays is nothing compared to their grab for power and control.

Underlying all of this is a disdain and hatred for all Americans who should pay for the sins of American´s imperialism over the decades.

This is about retribution and social justice, plain and simple. The worst part is no one has the guts to stop him, so it is only going to escalate until they turn the reins over to Hillbill.

What a great country we used to live in.

#3 says it all... Excellent post!

The only miscalculation by this administration is the reaction to Bergdahl from the American people. I think Zero expected a hero´s welcome. Unbelievable.

FTA: “I had forgotten about that abducted American,” said Manikhel. “I hope the U.S. can re-arrest the Talibs that they released.”

This Afghan has more sense than Obama, his minions, and lickspittles in the media.

Our country is going down for many reasons mostly related to Obie and regime. One of the reasons that the left has been pushing for years...is diversity at any price. Obie has just let illegally a reported two million poor, uneducated, non English speaking Latino´s into our country. How much do you think that will cost America in money, crime and eventually votes when Obie grants amnesty for all ?

There is no doubt. None what so ever, that Bergdahl was looking for the Taliban. There are copious e-mails detailing his disdain for America as well as statments made to his squad mates. All of whom were there and all of whom say he was a deserter. The author says he "may have deserted". "May have"?? Really??? Only a hopeless Kool Aid drinker would imply otherwise. I guess thats all you can expect from the WaPo. They will carry Obama´s water all the way to the gates of Hell. Our illustrious Prezzy says that prisoner exchanges are normal when you are at war with another country. I´d like to know which country he is referring to. We are at war with a savage, mysogonistic cult that is stuck in the fifth century. They are savages. You don´t negotiate with them. You kill as many of them as you can until they beg for a truce. Bergdahl didn´t just desert. He gave aid and comfort to our enemies in direct contradiction to the oath he took to protect and defend his country. He deserves to be shot. If the Army has become to PC to do it, by all means let me do it. I´ll supply my own ammo and won´t lose a minute of sleep afterwards. He and his family are filthy traitors.

Glad I was able to get that off my chest.

#7 don´t get too upset with Senator Graham - at least he used the term "impeachment" in public. He just may be planting a seed or testing how the public will respond to the idea.

Just remember Graham is a politician first and foremost. If politicians don´t have a 60% or more approval of a possible action, they won´t push for it. All they can do is talk it up until approval hits 75%-85%, which would mean that they will still be re-elected in the next election.

The striking thing about this article is the villagers´ observation that Bowe Bergdahl appeared to be under the influence of drugs. I wonder if anybody has checked up on his history re this issue. In any case, it reinforces my view that Bowe was not of sound mind, and should not have been in the military.

I feel that the reasons obama does what he does is far sinister that anyone can imagine. He hates America. He has no left wing agenda. He is using their Utopian ideas to bring us to our knees The only thing that will make him happy is make us suffer. Obama is using what we have built to destroy us. He is a jihadist and he knows that by his actions he will soon be sitting by the side of his God sharing in his Gods glory.

"Wandering away " is the media´s favorite euphemism to describe Bergdahl´s desertion.
As if he had been on a picnic and went off to pick daisies.
Toddlers and Alzheimer´s patients wander away, not soldiers in a war.
Bergdahl defected.
Barry pardoned 5 Taliban terrorist mass murderers and
Barry would have pardoned Osama bin Laden
if he was still alive.
All to forgive a defector and traitor .

Furthermore..where´s the outrage for the brave soldiers that may have been lost capturing those 5 scum that were responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent Afghan lives. More needs to be said about the blood that will be on Obama´s hands because he sees no difference in this and the Japanese or German POWs at the end of WWII. Such a petty stupid little man.

FTA:

“They tried to tell him not to go there, that it is dangerous. But he kept going over the mountain. The villagers tried to give him water and bread, but he didn’t take it,” said Ibrahim Manikhel, the district’s intelligence chief.

“We think he probably was high after smoking hashish,” Manikhel said. “Why would an American want to find the Taliban?”


Members of Congress who saw the "proof of life" video believed he looked more drugged than ill.

He may have been on hashish or local opium for a long time - even before he took his walk.

At one point he was found asleep on duty in an armored vehicle. His guard duty assignment was punishment for that and it ticked him off.

O and his staff of idiots didn´t give a thought to the Americans who were injured or killed while rounding up these 5 guys, or to the villagers who now have to deal with their release. Nor did they care about how many American soldiers are now even more at risk, due to this administration putting a high price on the head of any kidnapped soldier.

The only way he survives this firestorm is to announce that the military made the trade in order to file treason charges as soon as Bergdahl hits American soil.

He turned a bunch of murderers and rapist lose on us over here too. I see a pattern, but the only motive that fits is hatred of America at home and American military strength abroad.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

Last night on Fox News´ Special Report, Kirsten Powers made the case that the kids arriving on the border shouldn´t be treated as illegal immigrants but as refugees. Powers apparently went to the border and talked to some of the kids there and reports they had some harrowing stories of the reasons they made the dangerous journey through Mexico to America. I suspect Powers is right that if more Americans could hear the stories these kids are telling fewer of them would clamor for these kids to be sent home. President Obama probably miscalculated when he refused to go to

Virtually every key House Republican, from Speaker John Boehner on down, has vowed to oppose a conference committee with the Senate´s immigration bill passed last year. And lawmakers working to craft legislation to address the tens of thousands of children streaming across the southern U.S. border say it won´t touch citizenship for illegal aliens, increased visas, or any other topics than border security. But a key veteran of the immigration wars on Capitol Hill is warning that legislation to amend a 2008 law being cited for cumbersome, years-long deportations would theoretically open the door to a conference committee on the controversial

President Obama’s defiant emphasis on executive action reveals a larger failure looming for his legacy: His inability to work with Republicans means that he’s unlikely to score even one significant legislative achievement over the final years of his presidency. Unless Democrats win back the House and hold onto the Senate in November, a scenario dismissed by most political analysts, Mr. Obama has said goodbye long ago to his biggest accomplishments in Congress. They occurred back in 2010, when Democrats controlled the House and Senate, and Mr. Obama signed into law Obamacare, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform act and a two-year extension

News 12 New Jersey reporter Sean Bergin has reportedly been suspended for comments he made on-the-air Sunday evening about the black community. After reporting on a suspect in the fatal shooting of Jersey City police officer Melvin Santiago, Bergin told his viewers that News 12 was “besieged” with phone calls from police officials “furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a cop killer.” Those complaints were “understandable,” Bergin said. “We decided to air it because it’s important to shine a light on the anti-cop mentality that has so contaminated America’s inner cities.” He then made the

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer isn’t so sure Democratic Sen. Harry Reid is on his medication. Krauthammer speculated on Reid’s mental health on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Tuesday night. The panel, including Baier and Fox News contributor Mara Liasson, was discussing the influx of illegal immigrants — mostly women and children — flooding over the southern border. Liasson explained that President Obama has always said he “wanted the flexibility to treat kids from Central America the same as Mexico” but never explicitly asked Congress to change the Bush-era 2008 sex trafficking law. “He wanted Congress to go first,” she said.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
