Father of soldier killed searching for deserter Bowe Bergdahl is livid that Bergdahl is back on active duty

When he should be hanging by his neck for treason.

NY Post  A dad who believes his soldier son died hunting for accused deserter Bowe Bergdahl was furious Monday that the former Taliban POW had returned to active duty.


“I find it unbelievable. I don’t understand what’s wrong with these people. He’s a deserter from the US Army, and he should be treated as such. He should be charged with desertion under the uniform code of military justice,” fumed Andy Andrews, father of 2nd Lt. Darryn Andrews, who was 34 when he was killed in Afghanistan in September 2009.

His platoon mates told Andrews’ father they were searching for Sgt. Bergdahl, now 28, when his son was killed in an ambush. “I think they [the Obama administration] are doing this to justify the release of the five Taliban [who were swapped for Bergdahl],” Andrews told The Post from his home in Cameron, Texas.

Bergdahl returned to active duty — a desk job — at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio on Monday, the Army said.


Obama ‘Jihadist’ Regime signs $11 billion Arms Deal with Qatar, the country to which we released 5 Taliban terrorists in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, American deserter/traitor


The United States signed an agreement with Qatar on Monday to sell the Gulf Arab Muslim nation Apache attack helicopters and Patriot and Javelin air-defense systems valued at $11 billion.

Pat Dollard  “Today’s signing ceremony underscores the strong partnership between the United States and Qatar in the area of security and defense and will help improve our bilateral cooperation across a range of military operations,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.


The agreement was signed at the Pentagon by U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Qatar’s defense minister, Hamad bin Ali al-Attiyah.

It was the biggest U.S. arms sale so far this year, according to media reports.

Hagel visited Qatar in December when he and al-Attiyah signed a 10-year Defense Cooperation Agreement to govern interaction between U.S. and Qatari forces and enable the continued assignment of American troops to installations in the area, including the Combined Air Operations Center at Al Udeid Air Base.


“This is a critically important relationship in the region,” said Kirby. “And the secretary is pleased to be able to continue to make it stronger.”

Qatar is holding for a year five Taliban prisoners released from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for U.S. Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held captive in Afghanistan.



Apparently, as part of his program to get more Muslims into the military, Obama allows deserter/traitor Bowe Bergdahl to resume active duty

Five years after deserting his Army post to voluntarily join the Taliban and six weeks after being released in a terrorist exchange, Bowe Bergdahl is expected to return to life as a regular Army soldier as early as Monday, said Defense Department officials.


 NY Times Bergdahl has finished undergoing therapy and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio, and will assume a job at the Army North headquarters at the same base, Fort Sam Houston, the officials said. He is also expected to meet with Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl, the officer who is investigating the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance from his outpost in Afghanistan in 2009.

Bergdahl’s transfer from the therapy phase to a regular soldier’s job is part of his reintegration into Army life, officials said. He will live in barracks and have two other soldiers help him readjust.




Did you know that the Obama Regime is planning to flood the U.S. Military and Pentagon with Muslims?

Now that Barack Hussein Obama is changing the demographics of America by flooding it with illegal aliens, he seeks to wreak more havoc on the military by ordering the Defense Department and Pentagon to recruit more Muslims and promote them to leadership positions….most likely to replace all the high-ranking and mid-level officers he has fired.


World Tribune (h/t Rob E)   “Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.

The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on July 3. It was not clear how the Pentagon identified the Muslims. The department has not given statistics on members of other religious faiths.

In 2009, a U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, shouting “God is great,” opened fire and killed 13 of his colleagues. Later, authorities acknowledged that Hasan, a psychiatrist, was linked to Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.


Critics have accused the administration of promoting Islam as the preferential faith in the United States. Over the last year, a senior adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, issued a statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”

“I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary said in a Twitter post on June 30.


On July 3, Work attended the annual Pentagon ceremony of Iftar, or the evening dinner after a day-long fast that continues throughout the Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pentagon has been conducting the ceremony since 1998 in commemoration of Islam.

“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an important part of the Muslim community,” Work said.

The Pentagon, which hired Saudi-sponsored groups to raise awareness, has reported the employment of 1,000 Muslims. Officials said they included civilians and contractors for the Defense Department.

In his address, Work quoted Obama as saying that Ramadan reminded Americans of the principles of peace, justice and equality. The deputy secretary also urged those at the Iftar to remember their responsibility to the defense of the United States.

“Our country’s founders understood in a visceral way [that] the best way to honor the place of faith in the lives of all Americans was to fight for justice and equality as well as liberty and freedom,” Work said. “That is exactly what the men and women both in and out of uniform who serve in the Department of Defense do every single day. They are safeguarding the very ideals deemed so precious by our founding fathers.”






Obama Regime is handing out pink slips to U.S. military mid-level officers on the battlefield

The Defense Department has announced that thousands of soldiers — many serving as commanding officers in Afghanistan — will be getting slips telling them their service is no longer needed. Mostly Majors and Captains are being laid off, while Obama is demanding $4 billion for illegal alien garbage.

Last week, more than 1,100 Army captains — the men and women who know best how to fight this enemy because they have experienced multiple deployments — were told they’ll be retired from the Army.



RADIO HOST Michael Savage makes the case that Navy SEAL Team Six was set up to be murdered in Afghanistan

On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.

Conservative talk radio host Michael Savage believes the public is being misled about the deaths of 17 members of the Navy’s SEAL Team Six.

Family members of the soldiers filed a lawsuit to seek damages from the US, Afghan, and Iranian governments, while also pressing Congress to address what they perceive to be improprieties in the government’s version of events.



New Hampshire Marine who was barred from wearing his uniform for his high school graduation has been killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan

Lance Corporal Brandon Garabrant, who enlisted in the Marines even before graduation, was one of three U.S. service members killed in Afghanistan on Friday.  The community where the 19-year-old grew up were saddened by his death, and a flag was at half mast outside the fire station where he was a volunteer.

Capital Bay  Garabrant had been so proud of making it into the Marines that he made headlines last year after trying to wear his uniform to his high school graduation. His Peterborough school denied his request, telling the teenager that he would have to wear his cap and gown over the newly acquired uniform.

The principal, Brian Pickering, this week praised his former student and said the school community was upset to hear that Garabrant had died. ‘We are all shocked and deeply saddened by his passing and we are incredibly grateful for his service to our country,’ Pickering told WMUR9.

Garabrant’s untimely death struck a chord with many in his New Hampshire community. Several had already backed the young man’s dedication to the forces after his plea to graduate in his uniform. As well as serving in the Marines, Garabrant worked as a volunteer firefighter.

At the time of the high school celebration last June, he had just completed his training at a South Carolina camp. Several shops around the school showed their support for his request to wear the uniform, and put signs up calling for the school to change its rules. His mother, Jesse Garabrant, said at the time: ‘I’m overwhelmed with the support of the community. It’s just wonderful.’

Residents in Peterborough had supported Garabrant's request to wear his uniform. They are united again as they mourn his passing

As well as being a dedicated Marine, Garabrant also worked as a volunteer firefighter in Temple.. Whenever he came home on leave, the first thing he did, contacting me, “Chief, I need a pager so I can help you out”,’ volunteer fire chief George Clark said. ‘He absolutely loved what he was doing. He knew the sacrifice and he was still willing to do it,’ Clark told WMRU9.

Peterborough police chief Scott Guinard also praised the young Marine, calling him ‘a young gentleman’. New Hampshire governor Maggie Hassan has paid tribute to the Marine and volunteer firefighter who was ‘dedicated to serving his fellow citizens, and he was tragically taken from us far too soon’.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen added: ‘Garabrant was a hero in every sense of the word. He valiantly served our country and epitomized the bravery and sacrifice of every member of our armed forces for which we will be forever grateful.’

War dog finally laid to rest with military honors

No military cemeteries would take him. Max, a German Shepherd, did 4 years of active duty with the Air Force and was retired in 2007 because according to his military file, “he had become too nice.”


Pam Pelton adopted Max from the Military War Dog Agency and he was with her until he died on Memorial Day 2012. Pelton wanted to bury him in a military cemetery but none would take him. Finally, 2 years later, she found a place for Max in the New Hampshire MSPCA Hillside Acre Cemetery which has a special section just for military dogs. RIP Max.



Daughter’s anger at learning that the Taliban terrorist who murdered her U.S. Marine/CIA father in Afghanistan has been freed by Barack Hussein Obama in exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl

firsthero-112901Alison Spann was just 9 years old when she learned her father, a U.S. Marine turned CIA operative, had become the first American killed in the war in Afghanistan. Thirteen years later, she found out her country had freed the Taliban leader behind his death. In the time between, Spann has cherished the memory of her father, Johnny Micheal ‘Mike’ Spann, who was killed during a Nov. 25, 2001 prisoner uprising at a northern Afghanistan compound where he was interrogating Taliban fighters.

FOX NEWS  The 32-year-old was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in a ceremony in which he was lauded by then-CIA Director George Tenet for trying to build a “better, safer world.” His daughter has since grown up and recently graduated from Pepperdine University, even as more than 2,300 Americans have died fighting in Afghanistan.

But nothing prepared Alison Spann for news that Mullah Mohammad Fazi, the unquestioned leader of the prisoners at the compound where her father was killed, had been traded along with four cohorts held at Guantanamo Bay for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held by the Taliban for nearly five years.

“My initial reaction was shock. I was shocked that our president would release five of the most high-risk prisoners being held in Guantanamo in exchange for one American,” she told FoxNews.com. “As a whole, my family was extremely upset and saddened that our government would do something like this, especially in light of the fact that it seems that people in the intelligence community are fairly united in their belief that these terrorists are likely to seek to further harm Americans in the future.”

She has followed the story closely, but still cannot fathom how the country her father loved and fought for could allow his killer to go free. “It does become harder and harder to have faith in an administration that is plagued with scandal after scandal,” she said. “I do not believe that it was the right move by the administration.”


Mike Spann died at the Qala-i-Jangi compound near Mazari Sharit in northern Afghanistan, where he was interrogating detainees captured during the early weeks of the war. Fazi, according to his Guantanamo case file, had been deputy defense minister and commander of all Taliban troops in the northern Afghanistan region at the time of the September 11 attacks. Before that, he was accused by Human Rights organizations of personally supervising the murders of thousands of Shiite and Tajik Sunni Muslims.

Although Secretary of State John Kerry has called concerns that Fazi and the other four freed Taliban leaders will return to the battlefield “baloney,” Alison Spann considers it only a matter of time.


You cannot release someone of such a high caliber within the Taliban community and expect him to suddenly emerge as a peaceful being. I would think now more than ever after being detained in Gitmo that he would seek revenge on America,” she said. “These prisoners had one goal when they went into Gitmo and I feel certain that they left Gitmo with that same goal, and that is to do harm and spread evil in the world. The implications from this act will reach further than our soil and I am afraid that these prisoners have no plans of standing down from their original fight.”

 Tenet told mourners at Spann’s funeral that it was his “quest for right” that led him to Afghanistan.

“To that place of danger and terror, he sought to bring justice and freedom,” Tenet said. “And to our nation – which he held so close to his heart – he sought to bring a still greater measure of strength and security. For Mike understood that it is not enough simply to dream of a better, safer world. He understood that it has to be built – with passion and dedication, in the face of obstacles, in the face of evil.”

While Spann is widely regarded as a hero and a patriot, questions have arisen about Bergdahl. Men who served with Bergdahl have said he deserted his post, and Bergdahl’s own emails and journal entries appear to support the charge. Alison Spann declined to characterize the circumstances behind Bergdahl’s departure from his base in 2009, but said trading with terrorists is not wise policy.


“While I cannot speak on Bergdahl because it seems that there is a lot that is still unclear about him I can say that I do not agree with this POW swap,” Alison added. “I believe that the implications from this decision will be seen in the near future.”

Mike Spann’s star is the 79th star carved on the Agency’s Memorial Wall. He also received the Intelligence Star and the Exceptional Service Medallion posthumously.

BELOW VIDEO is from Sept. 2013:


Did you know that the five Taliban terrorists were released to Qatar five days before Bergdahl was picked up?

Did you also know that these five were going to be released anyway and Bergdahl was just an afterthought? Apparently, to make America euphoric.

In the video shot by the Taliban, you will notice the military helicopter lands in a valley, as apparent members of the Taliban stand perched on surrounding hills with weapons. Non-uniformed Americans then walk over and shake hands with Bergdahl’s captors. 

Do you see the mountainsides around,” Glenn asked. “We’re landing our helicopter in a in the low point, so they have all of the high points… Look at the guys in the video. You can see the guys in the video. They all have their weapons at the ready.” Furthermore, after Bergdahl is handed over, he is brought to the idling chopper and frisked. Had he been outfitted with some sort of suicide vest, the entire helicopter would have blown up.


Wife of a soldier left paralyzed and unable to speak after risking his life to save deserter/traitor Bowe Bergdahl vents her fury

Why isn’t this hero being honored by the Muslim-in-Chief? The wife of a disabled Afghanistan veteran who was injured while searching for Bowe Bergdahl has posted a scathing message against him this week, adding a personal account to the rising protests against the negotiations with the Taliban that lead to Bergdahl’s freedom.


UK Daily Mail  (h/t Susan K) In a message she posted via Facebook, Shannon Allen, wife of Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen, wrote ‘Meet my husband, injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor. He can’t give an account of what went down, because he can no longer speak. Now, which guy is a “hero” again?!? Sick.’

In addition to the message, Allen posted a family picture, showing husband and wife in addition to their daughter. Mark Allen was posed in his wheelchair wearing his dress blues, while their daughter was wearing a graduation cap and gown.

Mark Allen, who is from Loganville, Georgia, was injured when a sniper bullet pierced the armor in his helmet in Kabul, Afghanistan. The bullet entered through his frontal lobe, rendering him paralyzed. 


The injury occurred only one month after he arrived to Afghanistan.

Shannon Allen’s comments add to the growing surge of public outcry over the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl’s capture by Taliban forces, as well as his release.

Five Taliban fighters were let out of detention in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Bergdahl’s freedom last week. According to critics, Bergdahl deserted his post at a U.S. Army base in the Paktika province of Afghanistan on June 30, 2009. Soliders that served at the same time and were deployed to search for him accuse him of deserting the U.S. Military that night.



‘We all served together and we were all in it together over there and he broke that bond by leaving us,’ Army Sgt. Josh Korder said on the Today Show on June 3.

The outcry is also gathering online. The Facebook groupBowe Bergdahl is a Traitorcurrently has over 69,000 likes. The banner on the top of the page shows the pictures of six soliders who died while searching for Bergdahl.

The Facebook page posted Shannon Allen’s message, which received nearly 60,000 likes and more than 5,000 comments.




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.’


[UPDATED] BARRAGE of angry e-mails ask city of Hailey, Idaho NOT to celebrate Bowe Bergdahl as a hero

The vast majority of e-mails sent to Hailey City Hall condemned the city for planning a homecoming celebration for Sergeant Bowe Bergadahl, now exposed as a traitor and a deserter. A lot of the messages talked about remembering the soldiers who were killed looking for Bergdahl.

KBOI  (h/t Susan K) One email reads,  ‘I’ve an idea….send an invitation to the families of the six honorable soldiers killed trying to find him on his ‘walk a bout’. From all the emails only three or four were positive. Emails even attacked Bergdahl’s father calling him a Muslim. Many emails talked about boycotting the town of Hailey, like this email: “According to Bergdahl’s father, ‘Hailey is just like Afghanistan.’ Congratulations, you made my list of places to avoid in America.” The majority of the emails were from veterans.

UPDATE: Idaho Town Cancels Bergdahl’s Welcome Home Celebration

Reuters reporter Mark Felsenthal reports that Sgt. Bergdahl’s hometown of Hailey, Idaho is canceling its planned welcome home celebration.


Bergdahl’s Army Squad leader says that calling Bergdahl a hero is a slap in the face to every American soldier

In an appearance on CNN with Jake Tapper, former Army Sgt. Evan Buetow, U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s team leader on the night he disappeared from his base in Afghanistan, said that Bergdahl’s desertion changed the nature of his squad’s operation, and that he was unhappy with the Obama’s praise of Bergdahl.

Buetow stated “when Bergdahl left the entire mission statement and the whole mission changed. Everything went to a recovery mission.” He also said that declarations that Bergdahl served honorably “made me upset” because stating “the exact opposite of what happened and it is a slap in the face.”Bergdahl “is no hero, he’s a deserter.”
