President Obama\’s unlawful “trade” of five terrorists from Guantanamo for Sgt. Bowe Berdahl, is smelling – make that stinking – worse by the second.
Excerpted from Jordan Schachtel and Raheem Kassam\’s article at breitbart.com:
In2010, The Taliban claimed U.S.soldier Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had converted to Islam and had taught thembomb-making techniques.
Thecircumstances behind the sergeant\’s disappearance and kidnappingremains suspect. Why he seemingly walkedoff of his forward operating base in 2009, an infringement uponbasic standard operating procedures, has not been explained.
Lt.Col Allen West notedthat there is no precedent for the Taliban detaining Americansoldiers: “Our troops are brutally, ritually, and savagelymurdered – to include American security contractors (remember theFallujah bridge) – not held for five years”, he said.
Inhis Saturday press conference with President Obama, Sgt. Bergdahl\’sfather, Robert Bergdahl, initially spoke in Arabic, the language ofthe Koran, in a message to his son: “In the name of Allah, the mostgracious, the most merciful.”
RobertBergdahl\’s (Bowe’s father) behavior seems to point to thepossibility that he also may have converted to Islam and has embracedradical elements.
HisTwitter page is filled with anti-American and pro-Islamistsentiments. There are many other controversial tweets besides themuch-reportedinstance where he tweeted, “I am still working to free theremaining guantanamo prisoners.”
Does this trouble you as much as it troubles me?
What has this President done? Has he released five dangerous terrorists back to where they can continue their activities, in order to retrieve someone who, for all intents and purposes, is little different in attitude from the terrorists who were released? Is his father a terrorist sympathizer as well?
I caution you that we still do not know the full story here. It is possible that this is not as insane, as damaging, as currently looks. But it is going to take a lot of explaining – and I\’m not talking about political kabuki, but real explaining – to convince me.
More as I get it.
