Bergdahl’s parents got
rare access to insiders

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 6/8/2014 10:52:31 PM

The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in

He´ll allow the parents to be advised and involved in negotiations for their son´s release, but he didn´t trust sharing that same information with Congress. This administration has gone completely rogue ... but just what is that same Congress going to do about it?

Just an aside here, a kind of media trivia item. The writer of this article, Rowan Scarborough, is a high school classmate of mine. He was a heck of a bowler in high school and introduced me to the seductions of vodka and orange juice. Always happy to see his work as a military correspondent for the Washington Times.

If I get any more angry at this travesty, my head will spin around like the girl in the movie "The Exorcist". This is wrong in so many ways, it would be hard to list them all. I am sure Pa Taliban raced home after every conference to chat with his jihad buddies on Twitter and accidentally on purpose, spill the beans. Did the CENTCOM commanders know these old hippies were privy to these conferences???

Stories like this one makes me sleep easier at night, doesn´t it you? /s

Obama and his administration have no concept of how secrecy works in time of war. They only understand high level secrecy when it involves the death of four Americans in a high charged and extremely dangerous terrorist infused country during an election cycle. Anything regarding that night is highly protected. Same thing for Fast and Furious, IRS scandal, VA scandal, NSA scandal, etc. However, secret military protocol is thrown to the wind for whatever reason Obama deems worthy when it comes to this questionable family. Evidently, he trusts the Bergdahls more than anyone in Congress. What could possibly be the tie that binds Obama and the Bergdahls? Hmmmm...

Weird how he had his hands all over Mrs Bergdahl on the stroll out to the podium. I could see Bubba doing that, but Nobama?

Born a Muslim, always a Muslim. You don´t just declare that you miraculously became a Christian. That is apostasy and punishable by death or imprisonment. Ask the Sudanese woman that is about to be hung. Once this is understood all of Obama´s actions become clearer. All you had to do is to watch al Baraq nod and smile as Bergdahl´s father gave thanks to Allah in the White House Rose Garden.

Bowe Bergdahl seems to have been special ever since he joined the US Army. And these military flacks like Col Mansano are so quick to say that we just wanted to keep his parents informed. Okay then - send them an email. You do not need to include them in video conferences with senior military leaders. But then again, the military has been neutered so no one would have objected.

And will Fox News please get rid of Juan Williams and his knee jerk protection of this Admin and attacks on anyone who questions this Admin? I can listen to his garbage on MSNBC.

FTA: “Mr. and Mrs. Bergdahl were regularly informed about what was happening throughout the duration using video teleconferencing [with] various military and other government agencies,” Col. Marsano said. “There was a great effort to keep Mr. and Mrs. Bergdahl updated on developments.”

After I saw the Rose Garden press conference with the Bergdahls, I made the observation and commented that the "familiarity" of the Bergdaghl´s with 0bama indicated that they had been in contact with the Administration for quite some time. It looks like I was right.

In the history of the US, how many families of AWOL Army PFCs have been included in high level video conferencing for a 5 year time period?
Since when does a normal AWOL PFC situation merit classified files from the get-go? Since when are non-disclosure statements required for a normal AWOL PFC incident? Since when does a normal AWOL PFC event require Congressional closed door hearings? Since when does a PFC drop major hints that he´s leaving before going AWOL? Since when do our troops track him, identify him with a bag over his head, but don´t TAKE him back? Since when does the father happen to speak Pashto so he can sympathize & communicate with terrorists online--- and the government, which has included him in high level security briefings, doesn´t KNOW he´s doing that? And what about the Obama secret Hillary lunch just prior to the swap---perhaps giving her a heads up so she could carefully craft her statements?
FTA:
“Mr. and Mrs. Bergdahl were regularly informed about what was happening throughout the duration using video teleconferencing [with] various military and other government agencies,”
Emphasis on "other government agencies." Any guesses?

Has anyone watched the TV series Homeland?
There are a few similarities. Obama thought we would be euphoric with his (well planned, and well timed) move to bring home Bergdahl as a hero. Like Brody, in Homeland, he probably thought Bergdahl would run for congressman. Of course, with the purpose to enhance the Obama legacy and to change the subject from the VA debacle. But it backfired on him.

Timing is everything with this group. They had to get the VA mess off the radar, so what better way to do it than to unleash another outrage. It must have really been important to O to use such a huge risk. And as in most of these issues, I would bet O was only half aware of any of it. These things are done by the "dude" around him. The constitution, the military, be damned. Its all about politics.

Read Rick Moran´s PJMedia children´s border invasion story below.
Now you see why the OBAMA JARED COMMIE CABAL
killed wounded vets, handed over terrorist generals to the enemy, left a Marine to rot in a Tijuana prison, one crime after the other.
It is all being done to distract the open border attack by uncounted thousands of children invaders, all invited by Obama´s cabal, all the way down to invade the Guatemalan border.
All of The Church Invasion is irreversible damage to our country. That´s the true insanity of the Obama Cabal.
And the Cantors, Boehners, Rubios, McLains are are all in on it, as if they were ALL demoRat commies, too.

#23 yes they were familiar. But at the first announcement press conference with Obama flanked by the couple, he began with "this morning I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl to tell them . . ." Making it sound to the nation that out of the blue their wish was now coming true. Yet while most of Congress had no idea, the Bergdales were in the know for probably weeks if not longer. Narcissists love to have people adore them and Obama loves adoration.

#4 and #20 - this completely computes. The "coincidence" of the Bergdahl´s being in Washington DC is necessary to make the alibi work that Obama did not have time to call Congress. If the White House organized the Bergdahl´s trip days in advance, they also would have had time to contact Congress.

Obama doesn´t care about actual people. He was just sucking up to the Bergdahls so they wouldn´t become the equivalent of Cindy Sheehan. If you want to see theatrics, just wait until little Bowe gets off the plane on US soil. But afterwards, he is going to need SS protection for the rest of his life.

In the foyer of the Central Intelligence Agency’s headquarters, there is a marble wall covered in stars. They are carved divots that represent those who have fallen in the service of the CIA. Below them, jutting out from the polished rock, is a black book entombed in a case of glass and steel. The book is a guide to the stars, giving the names of some of those who died and withholding the names of others. On the pages of the CIA’s Book of Honor are 107 hand-drawn stars organized by the years those officers died. For 2007, there is

SO FAR Hamas’s military campaign against Israel has been a dismal failure. Thanks in part to Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, some 1,200 rockets fired at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities have caused only one Israeli death and a few other casualties. Attempted commando attacks via the sea and a tunnel were stopped short, and a drone that ventured into Israel was quickly shot down. Yet Hamas on Tuesday rejected an Egyptian cease-fire proposal that was supported by Western governments and the Arab League and had been accepted by Israel. Why would Hamas insist on continuing the fight when

Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Obama. No, not that the president should be impeached. But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action. Of course this won’t happen, for the obvious reason that this tactic didn’t go so well for Republicans last time. Hence House Speaker John Boehner’s curt dismissal of Palin’s call for impeachment: “I disagree.” Boehner’s alternative — a lawsuit — offers the political benefits of draining impeachment fever from the more rabid Republican precincts while rallying the base

Israel’s pledge to intensify its military operation in the Gaza Strip could hasten the moment when the Obama administration will be forced to decide whether to use its leverage to corral its closest ally in the Middle East. Israeli officials, in a series of television interviews, statements and social-media venues, said Tuesday that Hamas’s rejection of a cease-fire offer validated the force it has used over eight days of conflict and made legitimate their argument for a wider military effort. The Obama administration appeared to accept that rationale, blaming the armed Islamist movement in Gaza for missing an opportunity to

President Obama told guests at the White House’s annual Iftar dinner tonight that “further escalation” in the Middle East “benefits no one, least of all the Israeli and the Palestinian people.” Faced with criticism from some Arab and Muslim activists who think he has been too friendly toward the Israeli side, Obama addressed the conflict near the end of his comments, which largely honored “the traditions of one of the world’s great faiths.” “For all of us, whatever our faiths, Ramadan is a reminder of just how much we share.

Four out of five illegal immigrants seeking driver’s licenses under a new D.C. law have failed a written knowledge test — a rocky start to a program that in its first two months has issued 268 licenses, according to city officials. The failure rate of 80 percent compares with a 58 percent failure rate for people seeking traditional driver’s licenses, the Department of Motor Vehicles told a D.C. Council committee.

President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch. His attorney general, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global

Ponder for a minute what AFSCME has done. The union has severed ties with the United Negro College Fund because the Koch brothers contributed $25 million to the fund. Or rather, because the fund accepted the contribution. The money will pay for 3,000 scholarships and other needs. To read about this episode, go here. The hatred whipped up against the Koch brothers has become nearly frightening, I think. It is undemocratic, unsettling, intolerant.

Maybe it is time for a shake-up. President Obama’s second-term staffing was always going to be a risk. He abandoned his first term’s team of rivals for a closer-knit team of loyalists. The bet was that he was assured enough in the job to no longer need the in-house challenge — and that smooth-running consensus would compensate for the loss. The bet isn’t paying off. Overseas and at home, the administration seems besieged and befuddled. Obama is in danger of cementing an image of haplessness that would be hard to undo. The administration was surprised when Russian President Vladimir Putin

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.

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

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
