OLIVER NORTH: “I know that a ransom of $5 – 6 million was paid to the terrorists for release of Bergdahl”

images-1On NewsMax TV, former U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Oliver North said U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was not a prisoner of war because he was actually being held hostage by the Haqqanis, a terrorist group separate from the Taliban and associated heavily with al-Qaeda.

NEWSMAX  North said he knew there was at least a $1 million dollar ransom being demanded for Bergdahl some time ago so he estimated the price paid to release the hostage must be close to $5-6 million now. “Someone paid a ransom,” North said. “Whether the Qataries paid it, or some big oil sheik, or somebody used our petrodollars, but there was a ransom paid in cash for each one of them, my guess somewhere in the round numbers of $5 or 6 million to get Bergdahl freed. 


North contended it wasn’t the Taliban in Afghanistan, but actually the Pakistan-based Haqqani network, which has links not only to the Taliban but to Pakistan’s national intelligence agency. 

“Think about what it means, this whole process that’s been done here,” he said. “Five terrorists who have killed Americans in the past or controlled others who do . . . are now not only risking the lives of American servicemen when they walk away from Qatar, whether it’s next week or next year, they’re threatening the lives of every single American by what they’ve done. Every American is now vulnerable to being grabbed and turned into a hostage.’

  1. Well there it is. I wondered just how much this travesty cost the U.S. Taxpayer, now we know. And this would not include include additional funds to line the pockets of the Administration.

  2. I would say there is a humongous muslim shitstorm brewing on the horizon (with a little help from our fear,-and spineless leaders (or was it “traitors?) We better buy protective shitstorm gear for this will get ugly and sooner than anybody might think. Btw: To me, this guy is a muslim traitor and deserter. He should be treated accordingly and not pampered and celebrated. This strikes me as highly disgusting,…well, anything to do with islam is disgusting to me but this one is like not only flaunting it in your face but more like hitting you with a sack of bricks. And still the majority doesn’t care or keeps quiet. Seems to me that our leaders just want to find out how much they can get away with and from the way it looks they can get away with ANYTHING ! What does that say about us?

  3. just as low as Obama and company or perhaps even lower was today’s New York Times (also referred to as NY Pravda) in their story on the prisoner swap when they never mentioned a word about Bergdahl’s former buddies who reveal his desertion but referred to the freed Taliban commanders as aging men, making it sound as though the transfer of prisoners took place with wheel chairs. I don’t know the ages of these sub-humans but assume that hair dye is not available in Guantanamo and not one of them reveals a single gray hair in their heads or lice beards.

  4. Bonnie I don’t know if you want to post as an article. I am so disgusted. Fools and TRAITORS UK leaders allow muslims to use intimidation and threats of violence if non-muslims don’t do what muslims say. It’s way past time that the muslim God-haters who are an OCCUPYING HOSTILE FORCE are deported immediately. It is the only ethical, moral, honorable thing to do.

    Support Tower Hamlets mayor or risk riots, says advisor
    Lutfur Rahman’s aide says there will be street violence unless people stop questioning the Tower Hamlets result

    A senior adviser to Lutfur Rahman, the extremist-linked mayor of Tower Hamlets, has said there will be street violence unless people stop questioning the manner of his re-election.

    The Electoral Commission is to hold an inquiry into polling in the east London borough after dozens of reports of voter intimidation and a chaotic count that took more than five days to declare a final result.

    Mr Rahman narrowly won re-election as an independent, by 48 per cent to 52 after second preferences. He was expelled from the Labour Party in 2010 after The Telegraph revealed his close links to an Islamic extremist group, the Islamic Forum of Europe.

    Kazim Zaidi, Mr Rahman’s publicly-funded political adviser at Tower Hamlets, wrote on a local blog: “If those who still seem unable to accept the result continue as they are, it will spill out onto the streets where even the cleverest machine politicians will not be able to manage it.” ……

  5. That the Obama far left/muslim regime place VERY high value on the lives of American-hating TRAITORS should not come as a surprise to anyone.

    The National Defense Authorization Act authorizes the military, under presidential authority, to arrest, kidnap, detain without trial and hold indefinitely American citizens thought to “represent an enduring security threat to the United States.”

    This act has been not put into law for muslim terrorists! Muslim terrorists are NOT regarded as the enemy. Peaceful, PATRIOTIC Americans – Christians, pro-lifers, Tea Party attendees, veterans returning from the wars….Americans who don’t agree with the politics of the Obama far left/muslim regime are regarded as the enemy.

    Now Obama zeroes in on domestic terror
    …….A West Point study from the U.S. Military Academy’s Combating Terrorism Center linked opposition to abortion and other “fundamental” positions to terrorism.

    Good is regarded as evil. Pro-lifers who want to SAVE lives are regarded as terrorists. The Obama far left/muslim regime are utterly OPPOSED to saving the lives of defenseless innocents, especially American INFIDEL BABIES.

  6. Of course, money was paid out. When Mullah Omar declared VICTORY, he was jubilating.

    Your post about Qatar bribes for the 2020 Games says it all.
