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.

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.

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.

Bowe-berkdahl-released-deserter-1

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.”

article-soldier-graphic-0531

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.”

Are we exchanging five Taliban terrorists from Gitmo for one American soldier who converted to Islam and might be a Taliban himself now?

Don’t forget, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was NOT captured on the battlefield. He left the U.S. base camp in Afghanistan in 2009 of his own free will and turned up with the Taliban a short time later.

  1. Obama: 5 Taliban will go to Qatar. ‘The Qatari govt has given us assurances it will put in place measures to protect our national security.’

So, we’re negotiating with terrorists AND relying on Qutar for our security? I feel SO safe…@ByronYork

This is  from the the (Muslim?) father of the Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl:

BpAxBcLCYAAfy6L

The father (photo below) sounds like a Muslim in a video he made to the Taliban:

UK Daily Mail Robert Bergdahl has posted the humble and respectful three-minute appeal on YouTube in the hope that ‘this video may be played to our only son’. ‘I address the Pakistani armed forces. Our family is counting on your professional integrity and honour to secure the safe return of our son. And we thank you.

‘Our family knows the high price that has been paid by your men in the army and the frontier corp. We give our condolences and thanks to the families of those who have fallen for Pakistan. ‘Strangely to some, we must also thank those who have cared for our son for almost two years … and others who have played a role in sheltering the American prisoner. We know our son is a prisoner and at the same time a guest in your home.’

Mr Bergdahl continues: We understand the rationale the Islamic Emirate has made through its video. No family in the United States understands the detainee issue like ours. ‘Our son’s safe return will only heighten public awareness of this. That said, our son is being exploited. It’s past time for Bowe, and the others, to come home. ‘To the nation of Pakistan our family would wish to convey our compassionate respect.

At times Mr Bergdahl speaks in a language used in northern Pakistan and Afghanistan, in a great effort to engage with the Taliban offshoot forces. The prospect of his son – who has converted to Islam and adopted the Muslim name Abdullah, according to his captors – being freed has not been helped by an aggressive campaign by U.S. and allied forces against the Haqqani network in recent months.

Obama appears with Berghdal's parents to announce "their son is coming home"  Is that a Muslim beard on the old man?

Obama appears with Berghdal’s parents to announce “their son is coming home” WHOA! Is that a Muslim beard on the old man?

HALLELUJAH! Federal Judge orders end to force feedings of Muslim terrorist

Let ALL the terrorists on hunger strikes at Gitmo starve to death! Most of them have gotten too fat anyway. Moochelle would not approve.

gitmoabsurdx_2

Jurist  The US District Court for the District of Columbia on Friday ordered  officials in Guantanamo Bay to temporarily suspend forced feedings of a Syrian prisoner kept at the detention facility on Guantanamo Bay.

Syrian national Abu Wa’el Dhiab has been detained at Guantanamo Bay since 2002 after being arrested in Pakistan on suspicion to terrorist activity targeting the United States. Currently Dhiab has been on a hunger strike while being detained, prompting guards to practice force feeding measures to ensure good nutrition. 

The Pentagon, in response to the order, has complied with Kessler’s wishes to temporarily halt force feeding measures. Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale stated in an email “[w]hile the Department follows the law and only applies enteral feeding in order to preserve life, we will, of course, comply with the judge’s order here.”

GITMO Guards attacked with feces, vomit, and urine on a daily basis

MILITARY POLICE IN CAMP DELTASomething I’ve learned that few Americans realize is that those who are subject to the most abuse at Guantanamo are not the detainees but the medics and guards who serve them. This shocking state of affairs has been largely under-reported by media whose focus remains on unsubstantiated tales of torture generated primarily from released detainees and attorneys who represent them.

Free Beacon  GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Prison guards here at the Guantanamo Bay prison are attacked on a “daily basis” by detainees, according to Commander John Filostat, a prison spokesman for the Joint Task Force (JTF) Guantanamo.

v3-guantanamobay

There are “daily attacks against the guard both verbal and physical,” such as scratching and other assaults, Filostat told reporters on Tuesday. “Guards endure that on a daily basis.”

Detainees also engage in “splashing,” which is when a “bodily fluid cocktail” is tossed at guards, who now wear protective wear and facemasks when dealing with high value prisoners being held at Camp 5 and Camp 6, according to Filostat.

From Inside Gitmo- A young female Navy medic who was asked to approach a detainee she had treated in the past. The man grabbed her head, smashed her face against the bars, and inflicted such damage that she has had 16 reconstructive plastic surgeries on her face.

- A female nurse who while treating a detainee in the hospital was punched so hard that it fractured her nose. The detainee then shouted that “this infidel whore’s blood has defiled me. Bring me fresh clothes!”

- Guards who have a noxious “cocktail” of feces, urine, semen, spit, and vomit flung into their faces and who then clean themselves, change into fresh uniforms, and resume their duties rather than let their buddies down by taking time off.

- Detainee plots to kill guards, and how one attack came perilously close to success.

- Riots in the hospital in which medical personnel were threatened with death.

- A returning National Guard soldier who is too embarrassed to tell his friends where he served because the reputations of soldiers at Guantanamo has been so slandered.

Muslim prisoners in Gitmo attack guards more than 400 times per year.

“There’s some type of resistance every day,” Filostat said, noting that a “small number” of detainees are still being force fed due to hunger strikes. “We will always have those trying protest,” Filostat said.

One guard and his family were physically threatened by a detainee who had obtained a copy of a media report that featured the guard’s name and photograph, Filostat said. “Personal information” about the guard was used “against him as a threat by a detainee” who had read the report, he said.

“A lot of these detainees are still in the fight,” Filostat said. The guards are “in constant contact with folks who want to do harm to them.”

“There are detainees that also tell guards if they get out they’re going to find them,” Filostat added, acknowledging inmate threats to “guards and their families.” Those inmates deemed “non-compliant” are housed in single cells within Camp 5, while those identified as less of a threat are kept in Camp 6, which is a more communal environment.

Detainees are treated to some physical activity and reportedly enjoy playing soccer, Filostat reported. Even those in Camp 7 have access to the news and can read newspapers such as the Washington Post.

Accused 9/11 enabler Ramzi bin al Shibh was spotted by reporters at Tuesday’s military hearing reading a copy of the PostFilostat would not discuss any details pertaining to the secret Camp 7, where suspects such as al Shibh and accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed are housed.

“We don’t talk about the ops at Camp 7,” Filostat said in response to questions about the facility, which is said to be rundown and deteriorating. A Camp 7 commander was originally scheduled to testify this week before the court, but that fell through upon surprise revelations that the FBI had tried to recruit a member of the defense team as an informant.

gitmo_3951_20100330_r640x400

Judge James Pohl instructed the defense team on Tuesday afternoon to assemble a detailed order explaining the types of information and testimony they would want to receive FBI officials involved in the alleged investigation.

Pohl additionally directed all current and past members of the defense team to reveal to head lawyers whether they too had been approached or interviewed by any federal agency, including the FBI.

The prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay have attacked their military guards hundreds of times, turning broken toilet parts, utensils, radios and even a bloody lizard into makeshift weapons, Pentagon reports say.

Sweetness & Light Incident reports reviewed by The Associated Press indicate Military Police guards are routinely head-butted, spat upon and doused by “cocktails” of feces, urine, vomit and sperm collected in meal cups by the prisoners.

They’ve been repeatedly grabbed, punched or assaulted by prisoners. The detainee “reached under the face mask of an IRF (Initial Reaction Force) team member’s helmet and scratched his face, attempting to gouge his eyes,” states a May 27, 2005, report on an effort to remove a recalcitrant prisoner from his cell.

Entire wings of prisoners were reported to become riotous after complaints emerged that guards mishandled a Quran or mistreated prisoners. However, prisoners themselves were reported to have destroyed their Muslim holy books, the reports state.”Detainee tore his Quran into small pieces,” a guard reported in May 2003. A month later, a prisoner “did intentionally destroy his Quran and throw (it) out of his cell,” another report stated.

Cuba Guantanamo

Tensions likewise flared during Christmas week 2004, with inmates frequently spitting on guards. On Christmas Eve, a prisoner who was angry that he couldn’t finish his meal was said to have used a plastic fork-spoon utensil — called a spork — to attack a guard collecting his tray. “Detainee stabbed the MP guard … in the hand with his spork from chow meal,” the report said, adding the prisoner later “made a slicing motion across his neck” and vowed to kill the guard.

“They’ll take the smallest things, be it a piece of rust,” he said. “They told us they are going to take that piece of rust and they are going for the jugular, they are going for the eye. They know what our vulnerabilities are, anatomically speaking.”

Meal plates, shower flip-flops, cleaning brushes and other items deemed harmless in civilian life also are commonly turned into weapons, the reports said. For instance:

–”Detainee in cell grabbed the radio from an MP and then threw the radio at the MP. The detainee then threw rocks at the MP,” a Dec. 23, 2003, incident report stated.

–A detainee “reached out of his bean hole and attacked MP (name redacted) with a piece of metal foot pad from toilet striking him on the left hip area,” a July 15, 2005, report said.

–”Detainee broke off the top of his sink, subsequently broke out the window then began throwing the sink and pieces of pipes at the Block Guard,” a March 25, 2005, report said.

U.S. Marine Veteran kicked out of Pizza Hut by manager who thought his USMC patches were “gang” symbols

pizzahut-e1328888189171A Facebook user writing under the pseudonym Rick Libertas Semper claims that he was discriminated against at a Wisconsin area Pizza Hut for wearing military patches on a leather jacket. “Semper” tells the tale of trying to sit down and eat some lunch, and being told that he needed to remove his jacket, because Pizza Hut does not allow gang symbols in their restaurants.

Rare  Yes, you read that right, the manager thought his military patches were gang symbols.

EC57060_lg

“I was wearing my black leather jacket that has 4 patches and the back of the jacket is embroidered. One patch says USMC, the other patch says Marine Combat Veteran, the 3rd patch is the unit patch for 3rd Marines 3rd Battalion and there is a patch of the US flag on it. The back of the jacket is embroidered with the Marine Corps Emblem,” Semper wrote on his Facebook page.

P1259-Combat-Veteran-Marines-Patch1-e1397671741537

The world is full of idiots and here is a case in point:

I decided to go to Pizza hut for their lunch buffet after work and was approached by the manager who came to tell me that for the safety of the patrons and staff they do not allow people in the restaurant wearing gang colors.

I was wearing my black leather jacket that has 4 patches and the back of the jacket is embroidered. One patch says USMC, the other patch says Marine Combat Veteran, the 3rd patch is the unit patch for 3rd Marines 3rd Battalion and there is a patch of the US flag on it. The back of the jacket is embroidered with the Marine Corps Emblem.

I pointed out that these are not gang colors but represent one of the branches of our military and as a Veteran I have earned the right to wear them. He said he cant be expected to know all of the different gang logo’s union patches or clubs so they just don’t allow any of them in the restaurant……….what an ass clown…..

BS310_JPG-vi

When Semper pressed the manager, reminding him that he was a veteran and that he had earned the right to wear those colors, the manager replied that he shouldn’t be expected to know all the different combinations of organizations and colors.

Since first publicizing the incident, Semper has apparently cleared up the misunderstanding. After contacting the local franchise owner, Semper received an apology, and was told that the gang colors policy didn’t actually exist. Rather than press for the manager to be fired, Semper plans to meet with him to accept his apology in person.
