Negotiating With Terrorists: Obama Illegally Trades 5 Violent Taliban Prisoners For Taliban-Sympathizing “POW”


Catch and release? Obama should have been a sports fisherman, not a sitting President. Or maybe his new sport is trying to kill two birds with one stone. On one hand, negotiating with terrorists may be his own first step towards closing Guantanamo Bay as promised. This is woefully myopic and establishes a damaging precedent for other Islamic terrorists. On the other, the media is no longer focused on the embarrassing vet scandal (among others) plaguing this Administration, at least temporarily. Be that as it may, you’d think that even the Obama White House understood that a “Prisoner of War” was someone who had done all they can to avoid enemy capture yet ended up captured against their will in the field of war anyway. As reports suggest, however, Sgt. Bowe Berghdal — disillusioned with the Afghan war, the US military and even America itself — was a deserter who may have wanted to be “captured” by the Taliban. Why do I get the distinct impression that this “POW” could one day end up rejoining his Taliban “captors” if given the opportunity? …

By Jordan Schachtel & Raheem Kassam, Breitbart – “In 2010, The Taliban claimed U.S. soldier Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had converted to Islam and had taught them bomb-making techniques. Bergdahl had also changed his name to Abdullah, the Taliban claimed, though the mainstream media largely ignored the story, seeing it as comparable to the tale of Sgt. Brody in the fictional Homeland television series on Showtime.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) also dismissed the claims, insinuating that it was jihadist propaganda. But in the aftermath of Sgt. Bergdahl’s release yesterday, more information has come to light, raising further questions as to whether the Taliban had in fact been telling the truth about Sgt. Bergdahl.

The circumstances behind the sergeant’s disappearance and kidnapping remains suspect. Why he seemingly walked off of his forward operating base in 2009, an infringement upon basic standard operating procedures, has not been explained.

Lt. Col Allen West noted that there is no precedent for the Taliban detaining American soldiers: ‘Our troops are brutally, ritually, and savagely murdered — to include American security contractors (remember the Fallujah bridge) — not held for five years’, he said.

The reports that Bowe has had ‘trouble speaking English’ may seem confusing at the surface, especially since English is his native language and he has been seen on video over the past few years speaking the language without issue.

In his Saturday press conference with President Obama, Sgt. Bergdahl’s father, Robert Bergdahl, initially spoke in Arabic, the language of the Koran, in a message to his son: ‘In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful.’

The message insinuates that Sgt. Bergdahl decided to learn the language of the Islamic texts. Only a handful of Afghanistan’s 31 million people understand Arabic, and the official languages of the country are Pashto and Dari.

Robert Bergdahl’s (Bowe’s father) behavior seems to point to the possibility that he also may have converted to Islam and has embraced radical elements.

In May of 2011, Bob Bergdahl released a video that pleaded for his son’s release. He said, ‘Strangely, to some, we must also thank those (Taliban) who have cared for our son for almost 2 years… We understand the rationale of the Islamic Emirate (Taliban) has made through videos.’ The reference to the Taliban as the ‘Islamic Emirate’ is, by way of prior evidence, the preserve of sympathisers.” Read more.

    This time Obama forgot to mention, that if he had a son he would look like Bowe.
