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.

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.

article-2651223-1E8ADCE600000578-948_634x1194

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. 

article-2651223-1E8A6AB600000578-323_634x460

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.

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. 

img-infographicalqaedaattacksmay2014fullsize_151349582000

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.”

NBC’s CHUCK TODD says: “White House was expecting national euphoria over Bowe Bergdahl release”

And now they are accusing Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers of “swift boating” him.

Breitbart  On Wednesday’s “Today Show,” NBC’s senior White House correspondent Chuck Todd reported that a frustrated White House that was expecting joyous news-cycles out of the Bergdahl release is apparently attempting to smear veterans who served with Sergeant Bergdahl as liars. According to Todd, “White House aides describe it to me as ‘we didn’t know that they were going to Swift Boat Bergdahl.’”

With Democrats, the term “swift boating” is used as a pejorative to attack political opponents as liars. Democrats want the public to believe that John Kerry was “swift boated” unfairly during his 2004 presidential run when a number of the men he served with in Vietnam came forward to claim that Kerry had wildly exaggerated his war exploits. They called themselves “Swift Boat Veterans for Truth,” hence the term “swift boating.” Kerry still refuses to release his full military record.

‘BOWE BERGDAHL IS A TRAITOR’ Facebook page says soldiers were ordered to kill him on contact

men-who-died-looking-for-traitor-bergdahl

A Facebook page, apparently written by soldiers who served with Bowe Bergdahl and called “Bowe Bergdahl is a Traitor,” has sprung up. On the page, soldiers are writing anonymously of their experiences working alongside Bergdahl in Afghanistan. The soldiers are writing anonymously because some remain on active duty, and some also claim that the Pentagon has had them sign nondisclosure statements since Bergdahl went missing in 2009.

PJ Media (h/t Susan K)  One of the posts says that during the search for Bergdahl, soldiers had orders not to re-capture him at all.

From a soldier that was there. He requested that his name not be posted for security reasons.“What you have is pretty well spot on. All I know is that our orders were kill on contact and then we came back and it was covered up. I’ve personally been threatened a few times that discussing it in half the detail you already have was considered an act of treason.”

Bowe-berkdahl-released-deserter-1-e1401688877617

Another soldier disputes the Kill on Contact (KOC) order but agrees that he was briefed that Bergdahl was a deserter.

Anonymously submitted

“On 2 separate deployments to Afghanistan I was briefed that ‘ol boy was believed to possibly be in our AO and if contact was made he was to be detained and handed over to MP’s. I don’t recall a KOC order on him personally. My first encounter with this brief was while I was attached to some bearded badasses so forgive me on leaving that out. The second time I was in 3/509 PIR in 2011 which is the sister BN under 4-25ID (ABN). The usual story thats told around USARAK was he was observed leaving the FOB on foot alone by the cameras at the ECP.”

More than one post states that the government knows full well that Bergdahl is a deserter.

Another post lists the names of the six Americans believed to have been killed on searches for Bergdahl.

Unknown

The “Bowe Bergdahl is a Traitor” page links to a petition that has been posted on the White House website. That petition demands that Bergdahl be punished for the crime of deserting during a time of war. The maximum punishment for that is the death penalty.

One post lays out what happened in the area after Bergdahl disappeared.

“Many others from various units were wounded or killed while actively looking for Bergdahl. Fighting Increased. IEDs and enemy ambushes increased. The Taliban knew that we were looking for him in high numbers and our movements were predictable. Because of Bergdahl, more men were out in danger, and more attacks on friendly camps and positions were conducted while we were out looking for him.

His actions impacted the region more than anyone wants to admit. There is also no way to know what he told the Taliban: Our movements, locations, tactics, weak points on vehicles and other things for the enemy to exploit are just a few possibilities.

The Government knows full well that he deserted. It looks bad and is a good propaganda piece for the Taliban. They refuse to acknowledge it. Hell they even promoted him to Sergeant which makes me sick. I feel for his family who only want their son/brother back. They don’t know the truth, or refuse to acknowledge it as well.

What he did affected his family and his whole town back home, who don’t know the truth. Either way what matters is that good men died because of him. He has been lying on all those Taliban videos about everything since his “capture”.

If he ever returns, he should be tried under the UCMJ for being a deserter and judged for what he did. Bergdahl is not a hero, he is not a soldier or an Infantryman. He failed his brothers. Now, sons and daughters are growing up without their fathers who died for him and he will have to face that truth someday.”

Hunt for deserter/traitor Bowe Bergdahl left troops unprotected in infamous Afghan battle that killed eight U.S. soldiers and wounded 22

article-2647711-1E6B338C00000578-720_634x485

The Battle of Kamdesh, one of the most deadly military engagements during the U.S. war in Afghanistan, turned especially bloody – leaving eight Americans dead and 22 wounded – because troops and aircraft normally tasked to support U.S. fighting men and woman were diverted to search for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Unknown

  • Just 53 U.S. soldiers were left to defend an ammunition depot with no air support or reserves on Oct. 3, 2009 after nearly 350 Taliban attacked a combat outpost and 35 Afghan National Army soldiers fled their posts
  • Sources tell MailOnline that 8 U.S. soldiers died and 22 were wounded because additional troops and air cover were diverted to hunt for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl
  • ‘Those guys didn’t have the complete support they needed … because all the assets and everything were diverted to us,’ a member of Bergdahl’s platoon said
  • Combat Outpost Keating was the site of one of the bloodiest battles during America’s engagement in Afghanistan, with 150 Taliban paying for the armed assault with their lives
  • Two US Army sergeants won the Medal of Honor, the military’s highest award for bravery, in the Battle of Kamdesh in eastern Afghanistan

UK Daily Mail  The Oct. 3, 2009 battle at Combat Outpost Keating, near the town of Kamdesh in Nuristan province, lasted more than 12 hours and earned two Army staff sergeants the Medal of Honor, the highest award for bravery the Pentagon can bestow on a warrior.

article-2380086-1B05C5DB000005DC-709_634x397

But multiple sources including a well-placed Pentagon official told MailOnline that the bloodshed was far worse than it needed to be, and blamed the months-long shuffling of American military resources all across the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region after Bergdahl walked away from his post on June 30 of that year.

‘The COP Keating battle was so deadly because ISAF numbers were so low,’ a Pentagon official said, referring to the International Security Assistance Force, the generic term for the U.S.-led coalition fighters that included small numbers of soldiers from Afghanistan, Latvia and other nations. ‘And that was because so many U.S. troops were off searching for Bergdahl.’ The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to comment publicly.

article-2647711-1E7161CA00000578-926_634x415

An internal Pentagon report released in 2010 found that air support was late to arrive at the battle, and no ‘quick reaction force’ showed up for 13 hours. By that time, Taliban fighters had pushed through fences and overrun the facility, killing or wounding more than half of the U.S. personnel at the site and laying waste to most of the base.

American forces abandoned the outpost days later, but had to bomb its remains from above in order to prevent the Taliban from carrying away the last of the live ammunition that it had once housed.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid bragged to the Associated Press at the time that ‘this is another victory for Taliban. We have control of another district in eastern Afghanistan. Right now Kamdesh is under our control, and the white flag of the Taliban is raised above Kamdesh.’

Screen-Shot-2014-06-01-at-4.27.49-PM

On that same day, President Barack Obama was announced as the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

The Pentagon report noted that the outpost itself had ‘no tactical or strategic value,’ and that it was slated to be eventually abandoned – an outcome that the loss of life dramatically accelerated. ‘It’s beyond a doubt that we could have held COP Keating and inflicted even greater enemy casualties if we had had the air support we needed there, but the Bergdahl hunt spread everyone really thin,’ the Defense Department official said.

‘It’s also highly likely that the loss of life on the U.S. side would have been far less.’

Romesha ‘wouldn’t have had to put him and his men into the meat grinder of RPGs and B-10 rifle fire,’ the official said, if so many resources hadn’t been re-tasked to hunt for Bergdahl.

ARMY platoon mates of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan speak out about his desertion

No doubt that his motives for deserting were pre-meditated. He put Americans in jeopardy and is responsible for several soldier’s deaths.

Why is Bowe Bergdahl having trouble speaking English?

Muslim father of Army deserter traded for 5 Muslim terrorists repeats Muslim war cry of Allah, in Arabic, as Obama smiles.

SHOEBAT  While the Obama administration is proudly touting how it was able to free an American soldier who was captured hosted by the Taliban, what no one picked is the fact that Obama SMILED as soon as he heard the most famous war cry of Islam, “bismillah al-rahman al-rahim,” Arabic for “in the name of Allah the most gracious, the most merciful.”

This Islamic expression is the victory call of Islam, and this only indicates that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s father is a Muslim. Him saying this war slogan, his long beard and trimmed mustache (a mandated expression of Islam), is evidence enough that he converted to Islam, just as that an ex-Muslim putting on a cross and saying, “In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” is evidence enough of a conversion to Christianity.

As we find from Brietbart that the Taliban said that Robert Bowe Bergdahl’s son, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, converted to Islam, changed his name to Abdullah, and even trained the Taliban in bomb making techniques.

Like his father, Bowe trimed his mustache and extended his beard, as these pictures show: 

U.S. Army PFC Bowe Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban in Paktika Province, Afghanistan on 30 June, 2009. He was moved into the Tribal Region of Pakistan soon after. In this video his father addresses the Pakistani Military and the people of Pakistan.Bowe bergdahl taliban prisoner swap3

But is it the beard and trimmed mustache that confirm that the Bergdahls are Muslim extremists? Hardly.

Besides testimony from his colleagues on his desertion, what no one in the media captured was Robert Bowe Bergdahl’s favorites on his Youtube account. He has a litany of ‘terrorist favorites’, collection videos from training on how to become Muslim Jihadist to American troops who hate their service in Afghanistan and even favorite speeches by confirmed terrorists like Shaykh Anwar al-Awlaki, condemning America as a terrorist state:

Bergdahl’s Youtube account’s favorites list has an anti-American Anwar al-Awlaki video. Notice Bergdahl’s name above the list, showing that it is indeed his account

Bergdahl’s Youtube account’s favorites list has an anti-American Anwar al-Awlaki video. Notice Bergdahl’s name above the list, showing that it is indeed his account

Another favorite is a lecture from Mufti Ismail Menk, who identifies himself as a Muslim scholar titled “Qualities Of A True Worshipper”. Menk was also a favorite of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev.

One of the videos, posted on January of 2013, is entitled, “Duaa (prayer).” But prayer for what? His son’s release? Hardly, its for the release of the terrorists in American captivity. The prayer begins in Arabic, as Shoebat.com translates:

O Allah, release our prisoners, the Muslim prisoners, and send them back to our families in peace!

The rest of the video is in English and needs no translation:

Another video favorited by Bergdahl, is a Muslim jihadist terrorist video uploaded by the Afghan Islamic Emirate (the same group the 5 terrorists, who Obama helped released and who Bergdahl praisingly communicated with, were a part of) on August 5, 2013, in which a verse from the Koran is chanted:

Fight them, so that there will be no mischief, and the religion will be all Allah’s (Surah 39)

It appears that Bergdahl speaks Pharsi, since the video is in Pharsi, and he speaks to his son in Pharsi. The video also shows the logo of the Afghan Islamic Emirate. The video also shows dead American soldiers and praises the killing of them.

In addition, where did Bergdahl learn Muslim slogans (like Bismallah)? He learned from watching jihadist instructional videos on how to praise Allah, such as this video right here:

One of his favorite videos is Ayat Al-Kursi, a Quranic prayer Muslims use to personally invoke Allah’s protection. It is recited personally when one travels or is in need of divine protection.The fact that he favorited this video explaining a private Muslim prayer, shows that Bergdahl was not interested in just having the appearance of a Muslim, but is truly Muslim with great inner conviction.

Bob. Sgt. Bergdahl’s father was also in direct communications with one of the top three Taliban spokespersons named Abdulqader Balkhi, and he even messaged this jihadist with these words:

bobbergdahltweet

Also, if you look up Robert Bowe Bergdahl on Intelius, it says that he worked for the Taliban:

bergdahl-copy

Abdulqahar Balkhi is one of three main spokespersons for the Afghan Islamic Emirate an Islamic terrorist organization, the same terrorist organization who the five terrorist that Obama released were a part of. This makes the entire story very suspicious. Obama trades five Muslims who are part of a terrorist group, for a man whose father is associated with the same terrorist group.

Balkhi is also a spokesperson for the Taliban.

Balkhi was the main spokesperson for Taliban when the U.S. Embassey was attacked in Kabul.

So what did America gain from all this? Nothing, it was the Taliban who gained. Those released were top major terrorist leaders.

2u6laf4.jpg

Some lawmakers are saying that President Obama broke the law by agreeing to a deal where he would release five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders in U.S. custody. Two of the five released are wanted by the UN for war crimes and the Joint Task Force Guantanamo deemed all five of them “high” risks to both the U.S. and its allies.

What makes this story even more suspicious, is how, as we learn from an American soldier, Bowe was a deserter who left his post. Former Sergeant Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon when he went missing on June 30, 2009, said:

I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on…Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.

A former member of Bergdahl’s squad, who goes by “Cody,” shared that local village children in Afghanistan said that Bowe came by their area and “Wanted to meet with Taliban.”

Former Pfc. Jose Baggett, 27, who was in Blackfoot Company, said he was close to two men “killed because of his (Bergdahl’s) actions.” Baggett also said:

He walked off…He left his guard post. Nobody knows if he defected or he’s a traitor or he was kidnapped. What I do know is he was there to protect us and instead he decided to defer from America and go and do his own thing. I don’t know why he decided to do that, but we spend so much of our resources and some of those resources were soldiers’ lives.

Bowe obviously was a mule who was being used by the Taliban to help them ambush American soldiers who were looking for him. Cody revealed:

A huge thing in country is not building patterns. Well when you are looking for a person everyday that creates a pattern. While searching for him, ambushes and IEDs picked up tremendously. Enemy knew we would be coming. IEDs started being placed more effectively in the coming weeks. Ambushes were more calculated, cover and concealment was used.

Loyal soldiers infuriated because of Bowe’s actions since it led to the deaths of American troops. One soldier said:

It was unbelievable… All because of the selfish act of one person. The amount of animosity (toward him) is nothing like you’ve ever seen before. …I don’t understand why we’re trading prisoners at Gitmo for somebody who deserted during a time of war, which is an act of treason.

This whole story is suspicious. Obama has always wanted to shut down Guantanamo, and now he releases five terrorists for one American soldier, said to be a Muslim convert and assistant to the Taliban, whose father is a Muslim with an Islamic beard who said the Islamic victory call of “Bismallah,” (and Obama smiled when he heard this jihadist victory call).

Obama, in his last term, is becoming blatant with his Islamic sympathies.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, deserter/traitor scheduled to get a promotion

Emails reported by the late Michael Hastings in Rolling Stone in 2012 reveal what Bergdahl’s fellow infantrymen learned within days of his disappearance: he told people that he no longer supported the U.S. effort in Afghanistan“The future is too good to waste on lies,” Bowe wrote to his parents. “And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be American. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting.” Bergdahl wrote to them, “I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

Fellow soldiers say Bowe Bergdahl is no hero, but a deserter, traitor who cost several soldiers their lives

The sense of pride expressed by officials of the Obama administration at the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is not shared by many of those who served with him — veterans and soldiers who call him a deserter whose “selfish act” ended up costing the lives of better men.

CNN  “I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on,” said former Sergeant Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon when he went missing on June 30, 2009. “Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.”

Vierkant said Bergdahl needs to not only acknowledge his actions publicly but face a military trial for desertion under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. According to first-hand accounts from soldiers in his platoon, Bergdahl, while on guard duty, shed his weapons and walked off the observation post with nothing more than a compass, a knife, water, a digital camera, and a diary.maker on Bergdahl.

At least six soldiers were killed in subsequent searches for Bergdahl, and many soldiers in his platoon said attacks seemed to increase against the United States in Paktika Provice in the days and weeks following his disappearance.

Many of Bergdahl’s fellow troops — from the seven or so who knew him best in his squad, to the larger group that comprised the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division — told CNN that they signed nondisclosure agreements agreeing to never share any information about Bergdahl’s disappearance and the efforts to recapture him. Some were willing to dismiss that document in hopes that the truth would come out about a soldier who they now fear is being hailed as a hero, while the men who lost their lives looking for him are ignored.

Many are flocking to social media, such as the Facebook page “Bowe Bergdahl is NOT a hero,” where they share stories detailing their resentment. A number of comments on his battalion’s Facebook page prompted the moderator to ask for more respect to be shown. “I challenge any one of you who label him a traitor to spend 5 years in captivity with the Taliban or Haqqani, then come back and accuse him again. Whatever his intent when he walked away or was captured, he has more than paid for it.”

Emails reported by the late Michael Hastings in Rolling Stone in 2012 reveal what Bergdahl’s fellow infantrymen learned within days of his disappearance: he told people that he no longer supported the U.S. effort in Afghanistan.

“The future is too good to waste on lies,” Bowe wrote to his parents. “And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be American. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting.”

Bergdahl wrote to them, “I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

A former member of Bergdahl’s squad who has yet to identify his last name publicly but goes by “Cody” tweeted this weekend that before he disappeared, Bergdahl once told him, “If deployment is lame, I’m going to get lost in the Mountains and make my way to China.”

Leatherman told CNN that Bergdahl “always looked at the mountains in the distance and talked of ‘seeing what’s on the other side.'”

Cody noted in his Twitter recollections a story that others from Blackfoot Company relay. While soldiers were searching for Bergdahl, a platoon “came upon some children, they asked him have they seen an American. The children said ‘yes, he was crawling on his belly through weeds and acting funny a while ago,'” according to Cody.

The platoon went to the village where the children said the American had gone. “Villagers said an American did come through the area and was wanting water and someone who spoke English,” Cody shared.

Former Pfc. Jose Baggett, 27, of Chicago, was also in Blackfoot Company, and said he was close to two men “killed because of his (Bergdahl’s) actions.”

“He walked off,” Baggett told CNN. “He left his guard post. What I do know is he was there to protect us and instead he decided to defer from America and go and do his own thing. I don’t know why he decided to do that, but we spend so much of our resources and some of those resources were soldiers’ lives.”

On August 18, 2009, Staff Sgt. Clayton Bowen and Pfc. Morris Walker were killed by an IED in the search for Bergdahl. Staff Sgt. Kurt Curtiss was killed on August 26; 2nd Lt. Darryn Andrews and Pfc. Matthew Michael Martinek were killed after being attacked in Yahya Khail District on September 4; Staff Sgt. Michael Murphrey was killed September 5 by an IED at the Forward Operating Base, Sharana.

Moreover, other operations were put on hold while the search for Bergdahl was made a top priority, according to officers who served in Afghanistan in that time. Manpower and assets — such as scarce surveillance drones and helicopters — were redirected to the hunt. The lack of assets is one reason the closure of a dangerous combat outpost, COP Keating, was delayed. Eight soldiers were killed at COP Keating before it was ultimately closed.

One soldier with the 509th Regiment, a sister unit of the 501st, told CNN that after Bergdahl disappeared, the U.S. Army essentially was told to lock down the entire province of Paktika. He described sitting in the middle of a field with his platoon, vulnerable, with capabilities and personnel mismanaged throughout the region. Different platoons ran out of water, food, and ammunition.

Two mortarmen — Pvt. Aaron Fairbairn and Pfc. Justin Casillas — were killed in a July 4, 2009, attack. “It was unbelievable,” the soldier said. “All because of the selfish act of one person. The amount of animosity (toward him) is nothing like you’ve ever seen before.”

That Bergdahl was freed in an exchange for five detainees at Guantanamo Bay is a further source of consternation.

“I don’t understand why we’re trading prisoners at Gitmo for somebody who deserted during a time of war, which is an act of treason,” Vierkant said.

What the media won’t tell you about the Army deserter/traitor Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, for whom we just traded 5 Taliban terrorists from Gitmo

Several American soldiers got killed looking for this POS, a deserter who joined up with the Taliban voluntarily. Forwarded from the secret Special Forces unauthorized back channel frequency:

‘WANTED TO MEET WITH THE TALIBAN’: PLATOONMATE WHO DISCOVERED BERGDAHL MISSING PAINTS PORTRAIT OF LONG-PREMEDITATED DESERTION BY TRAITOR WHOSE ACTIONS KILLED U.S. TROOPS

bow3

Sean Linnane  (h/t whuptdue) “We were at OP Mest, Paktika Province, Afghanistan. It was a small outpost where B Co 1-501st INF (Airbone) ran operations out of, just an Infantry platoon and ANA counterparts there.

The place was an Afghan graveyard. Bergdahl had been acting a little strange, telling people he wanted to “walk the earth” and kept a little journal talking about how he was meant for better things. No one thought anything about it. He was a little “out there”.

Next morning he’s gone. We search everywhere, and can’t find him. He left his weapon, his kit, and other sensitive items. He only took some water, a compass and a knife. We find some afghan kids shortly after who saw an american walking north asking about where the taliban are.

We get hits on our voice intercepter that Taliban has him, and we were close. We come to realize that the kid deserted his post, snuck out of camp and sought out Taliban… to join them. We were in a defensive position at OP Mest, where your focus is to keep people out. He knew where the blind spots were to slip out and that’s what he did.

It was supposed to be a 4-day mission but turned into several months of active searching. Everyone was spun up to find this guy.

News outlets all over the country were putting out false information. It was hard to see, especially when we knew the truth about what happened and we lost good men trying to find him.

PFC Matthew Michael Martinek, Staff Sgt. Kurt Robert Curtiss, SSG Clayton Bowen, PFC Morris Walker, SSG Michael Murphrey, 2LT Darryn Andrews, were all KIA from our unit who died looking for Bergdahl. Many others from various units were wounded or killed while actively looking for Bergdahl.

Fighting Increased. IEDs and enemy ambushes increased. The Taliban knew that we were looking for him in high numbers and our movements were predictable. Because of Bergdahl, more men were out in danger, and more attacks on friendly camps and positions were conducted while we were out looking for him. His actions impacted the region more than anyone wants to admit.

There is also no way to know what he told the Taliban: Our movements, locations, tactics, weak points on vehicles and other things for the enemy to exploit are just a few possibilities. The Government knows full well that he deserted. It looks bad and is a good propaganda piece for the Taliban.

They refuse to acknowledge it. Hell they even promoted him to Sergeant which makes me sick. I feel for his family who only want their son/brother back. They don’t know the truth, or refuse to acknowledge it as well. What he did affected his family and his whole town back home, who don’t know the truth.

Either way what matters is that good men died because of him. He has been lying on all those Taliban videos about everything since his “capture”. If he ever returns, he should be tried under the UCMJ for being a deserter and judged for what he did. Bergdahl is not a hero, he is not a soldier or an Infantryman. He failed his brothers. Now, sons and daughters are growing up without their fathers who died for him and he will have to face that truth someday.”
