The USA gets it's Hero back !
« on: June 03, 2014, 09:07:22 AM »
The saga of Bowe Bergdahl, an American soldier who is now released after being in the hands of the Taliban for 5 years, is very strange.
There are allegations that he was captured after deserting his post and arms - then  wandering off - so he was taken by the Taliban.
Apparently four or five USA soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan while attempting to rescue him from the Taliban.
The USA have released FIVE Afghan detainees from Guantanamo Bay in return for Bergdahl's release - the 5 will be in Qatar for 12 months before being released on to Afghanistan presumably.
The State Dept. claim that the release of the 5 will not undermine security - UUuuummmm ? So why were they still in Guantanamo then ? Obama has repeatedly expressed a desire to close Guantanamo ?
Bergdahl's Father is suspected of being a Taliban sympathiser, apparently mouthing thanks to Allah while standing by the side of Obama at the Press Call. Oh what a tangled web is weaved !

Sky News have just shown a copy of an email from Bergdahl in which he describes graphically how much he detests the US Army.
Senator John McCain, well respected ? , says that the 5 Taliban released from Guantanamo Bay, are among the hard core of the hard core !
What a crazy way to run a World IMHO !

bit more here.........edition.cnn

(CNN) -- The parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl want the world to know they're beyond grateful their son has been released from Afghanistan after five years in captivity, but the battle is far from over.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Yes of course the Bergdahls are crazy happy and who wouldn't be ?
Oh I know, the parents of the 5 soldiers who were killed in the earlier attempts to find him after he had allegedly deserted.

Turning the TV on again tonight, the Bergdahl story just gets even worse - how long can Obama stay in denial as Bergdahl's former Comrades take to the Internet to clarify his bogus Hero status and the SIX bereaved families of soldiers who died trying to find Bergdahl, (as a Deserter), take to the airwaves with their own thoughts.
The State Dept. comment giving a 'clean bill of risk' about the 5 Taliban leaders released from Guantanamo is looking ridiculous as John McCain says they are the hard core of the hard core of the Taliban. OMG.
