As more revelations emerge about Bergdahl’s disappearance, it becomes clearer that the White House has something really big to hide. Here are three clues:
1. In predictable fashion, those who question the official story must be discredited. The Soldiers who are providing their own on-the-ground recollections must be “psychopaths,” as an Obama administration official at HUD referred to them. State Department spokesperson Marie Harf has attacked their integrity, and now the media has resurrected “swift-boating” — all meant to disparage, demean, and discredit these brave American Soldiers. This is what liberals do — and I speak from experience.
2. The Soldiers who served alongside Bergdahl and were on the ground with him when he disappeared were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements. Why? Would that be anything like the muzzling of the Benghazi survivors?
3. The classified Pentagon report from 2010 on Sergeant Bergdahl should by now be de-classified, but it’s not. Why? What’s in it?
Oh, and then there’s the case of Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings who wrote about Bergdahl’s disappearance in 2012 and ended up dead in 2013. Maybe it’s just a terrible “coincidence” but why was he being investigated by the FBI?
And for the record, the issue of Bergdahl deserting his post is not debatable. However, not until there is a full investigation will the truth about his actions afterwards be made clear — and that means Bergdahl’s testifying.
To have the Obama administration attack soldiers because they are not agreeing with the White House false narrative is unconscionable — but sadly, predictable. Oh and just wait. A new report, which alludes to Bergdahl having converting to Islam will find its author mercilessly attacked as well.
There’s a lot to this story the White House doesn’t want you to know. We’ve been here before, haven’t we? So predictable.
What else is predictable? The arrogance of Barack Hussein Obama, yesterday defiantly standing by his decision to release five senior Taliban leaders. Instead of displaying any humility in weighing this grave decision, it was abject disdain for having his actions questioned. No hostilities have ceased and the Taliban — Islamic terrorists — are not state actors, so the release is not justified under Geneva convention rules, No, it’s just Western civilization benevolence.
And the liberal excuse of using Israel’s release of 1054 terrorists for IDF Soldier Gilad Shalit as an example isn’t justified either– unless we want to also adopt Israel’s stance on not returning to 1967 borders.
I find it laughable that in one breath we have U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry referring to Israel as an “Apartheid State” but when Israel can be used to support Obama’s actions — releasing terrorists – liberals love Israel. Maybe Obama will take the same type of actions as Israel to attack Islamic terrorist havens?
However, Time magazine has already reported that the Taliban is now encouraged to kidnap more Americans, especially our men and women in uniform.
We don’t need Obama’s arrogance, especially when everyday Americans, who don’t have Secret Service protection, have targets on their backs. Hate to repeat myself, but I always said the reelection of Barack Hussein Obama would reward more bad behavior – and we’ve still got two more years to go.
