5 Indications that Bowe Bergdahl Is a Traitor

“I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

It is well established now that Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant for whom Barack Obama traded five top Taliban jihad commanders to get him out of captivity in Afghanistan, is a deserter. But there are also numerous indications that Bergdahl is something even worse: a traitor to the United States of America.

Although the White House continues to ignore the evidence that Bergdahl deserted, every day new revelations make the case increasingly compelling. According to Colonel David Hunt, Bergdahl “called his unit the day after he deserted to tell his unit he deserted.”

Nathan Bradley Bethea, a former infantry officer who served with Bowe Bergdahl, wrote in the Daily Beast on Monday that “Bergdahl was a deserter, and soldiers from his own unit died trying to track him down.” Bethea refuted reports that Bergdahl got separated from his unit while on patrol:

Make no mistake: Bergdahl did not “lag behind on a patrol,” as was cited in news reports at the time. There was no patrol that night. Bergdahl was relieved from guard duty, and instead of going to sleep, he fled the outpost on foot. He deserted. I’ve talked to members of Bergdahl’s platoon — including the last Americans to see him before his capture. I’ve reviewed the relevant documents. That’s what happened.

Army intelligence several times discovered where Bergdahl was being held, but special forces commanders declined to rescue someone they considered to be a deserter.

The Pentagon concluded the same thing in 2010: “Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching the military decided not to exert extraordinary efforts to rescue him, according to a former senior defense official who was involved in the matter.” This official said that the evidence that Bergdahl had deserted was “incontrovertible.”

But is he a traitor as well? Here are five reasons to think so:

5. The precision of post-desertion IEDs.

Former Army Sgt. Evan Buetow, who served with Bergdahl and was present the night he disappeared, says flatly:

“Bergdahl is a deserter, and he’s not a hero. He needs to answer for what he did.” Even worse, Buetow recounted that days after Bergdahl vanished from the U.S. base, there were reports that he was in a nearby village looking for someone who spoke English, so that he could establish communications with the Taliban. Soon afterward, Buetow recalled, “IEDs started going off directly under the trucks. They were getting perfect hits every time. Their ambushes were very calculated, very methodical.”

Bergdahl knew where the trucks would be going and when; said Buetow: “We were incredibly worried” that the Taliban’s “prisoner of war” was passing this information on to his captors in order to help them place their bombs most effectively.

Apparently PJM cut off my last words.

Or we can take the word of officials and their minions who we know have lied to us consistently and baldfacedly in the past, and are apparently doing so now.

The burden of proof in the court of public opinion is on Bergdahl and the Obama regime. Despite the heartache it causes the Left, the regime, the Democrat Party, and yes the Institutional Republicans; Americans are yet still free to examine the evidence as it appears, to discuss it openly and freely [except when PJM is acting squirrelly :-)], and to draw and express their own conclusions about it without let, leave or hindrance.

I would listen to his former soldiers as you call them before even contemplating any of your BS. Tell us, does DT in your screen name mean you are suffering from Delerium Tremens? That might explain your attitude to a traitor who needs and deserves to be on the receiving end of a firing squad.

The most obvious sign that Bergdahl was and is a traitor to this country is the fact that he was rescued, and is defended and protected, by Buraq Hussein Obama and his regime. Like calls to like.

to the libs that are so concerned about this man, and not to judge, didn't seem to hear any such concern with a minor situation involving the Clippers and their owner.

but now who are we going to believe, his unit and the reports after he Deserted, or the rantings of a man that hated the miltiary and has the libs telling us that we shouldn't believe those that were there, and had the first hand info.

So tell me again what he is going to say to defend leaving the base.

In my view, there are only two scenarios, he is a deserter, and needs to be tried and executed, or he is a deserter who turned traitor and needs to be tried and executed.

As to not being worried about a fair trial, I seem to recall that Holder wanted a public trial in NYC for one of the detainees so that they could try him and execute him as well.

@Brian..

Gee...I dont know where the idea that he deserted surfaced from...it's not like a dozen members of his platoon all have cogently testified to that fact.

But all the members of his platoon are psychopaths.

A White Hut spokesman said so.

The first sign of a red flag was in viewing all of the various videotapes we have of Bergdahl , while in captivity, none of it shows him distressed....and more telling. ..he is never forced to wear a blindfold.

It doesn't help that the backdrop for this is a 10 year war where "The Enemy" with a capital E, and the mission were not clearly defined.

As near as I can tell, "The Enemy" is ANY Afghan that opposes Karzai. I'm not clear on how immoral it is to oppose Karzai. Glad I'm not an Afghan.

Where Obama should really be pounded into the ground involves the way the whole thing was presented.

The White House characterized the capture of Bowe Bergdahl as “on the battlefield” after serving “with honor and distinction.” Pending a formal hearing which needs to take place one can still conclude that these remarks are, to say the least, in doubt. And people, particularly our fighting men and women, have every right to be angry about it. Inexplicable incompetence.

The enemy in Afghanistan can be hard to define. But we know the Taliban is part of the enemy.

I appreciate the greeting.

With respect, I cannot go along with your pronouncement.

"The Enemy" should have been persons running or participating in Al Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan and any Afghan warlords, taliban or otherwise, who allowed them to operate in their village. And the "Enemy" status should have existed up until there were no more camps.

That enemy was taken care of, in very impressive fashion, within months of 9/11. And we have means available to us to flatten any village that permits such training camps in the future.

What happened instead involved the use of our troops for social engineering projects.

Sorry, these remarks were meant for MT Geoff....

There are ways to torture a man that don't leave a mark.

Solzhenitsyn, in The Gulag Archipelago, details many techniques used by Stalin's minions. The single most widely used technique was used on Solzhenitsyn himself: sleep deprivation. Prisoners were put in individual confined spaces where they couldn't stand erect, couldn't sit, and couldn't lie down. Bright lights illuminated that space so there was never darkness. Guards watched constantly and if you seemed to be drifting off, they'd yell at you, poke you with something, throw water at you, whatever it took. After a week of this, Solzhenitsyn said you would say ANYTHING, including confessing to ridiculous plots that would positively result in the death penalty, just to have a few hours of sleep.

A lack of scars does NOT prove someone was not tortured. It's possible Bergdahl was tortured even if he has no scars from it. Of course it's also possible that he never suffered anything worse than a scowl from the Taliban too. We don't know because we weren't there. I'm not sure we can trust anyone who WAS there; the Taliban have plenty of reasons to lie as does Bergdahl.

@Henry...Cmon..Bergdahl shows absolutely no signs of psychological, physical OR emotional distress. ...none...nada...zilch...

You know why? Because there was none.
He freely did everything for them, willingly and enthusiastically.

He should be shot or imprisoned for life.

Try as I might, I cant quite hate this kid…..

He’s you’re typical screwed-up Left Coaster….hippie Parents, liberal school system… head filled with mush all their formative life so they drift around in a morass of emptiness putting on one mask after another trying to “find” themselves in some cause, any cause, that’s NOT the traditional American Patriotism they’ve been told since birth is a sham.

He’s on the usual path of those programed to seek “righteousness” by immoral left-tards full of their own self-importance… Wiccan, eco-freak, animal rights, commie, illegal immigrant lover, rabid abortion supporters, 40 year old (homeless) skateboarding street-painting “performance artists” ….deserter, collaborator, borderline traitor….they’re all from the same mold, the same ingrained inability to face the world as it has always been, without the tantrums and the collapse, the excuses the accusations that its never THEM…”It’s the SYSTEM man!”

He just wasn’t cut out for the Army, the same way Liberals (generally) aren’t cut out for the Job Market….everything needs to be an excuse, an alibi, subsidized or “granted” so they can do the “good work” of no REAL value, that no one would otherwise PAY them to do, while somehow feeling like The Superior Genius everyone tells them they are . Without that artificial relief valve/diaper/hammock, they’ll implode.

Some are wealthy enough to go to Ivy League schools and go on to sip the champagne of un-earned success, insulated from the hard reality of their own politics, but most are not.

This kid was just your typical, modern day pathetic weakling…..the product of those who INTEND our young men to BE pathetic weaklings….Conditioned since birth to be Morally Unable to Defend The Republic, all while being praised as “heroes” FOR that very weakness by the only “leadership” they’ve ever been exposed to.

So, treasonous as it was, I cant quite hate this kid.

If anything I feel sorry for him.
