Accusations of threats and intimidation against whistleblowers are a feature, not bug, of the scandal factory known as the Obama administration, and according to a columnist from Huffington Post, SwapGate is no different.
Huffpo columnist Bill Robinson joined Fox and Friends Monday morning with some exclusive info from a Pentagon official. Robinson said the official wanted the American people to know that there’s a bigger story about the Bergdahl swap that isn’t being told – including the claim that servicemen received threats and intimidation from the White House to keep quiet.
Robinson, who has written a series of columns called, “American hero stories” says the official thought he could be trusted with the information.
Robinson told Steve Doocy that “the White House, in concert with the State Department and Defense Department was orchestrating a campaign of threats and intimidation not only against infantrymen and the military men in Afghanistan at the time in 2009, but also against military officers and Pentagon officers to keep silent about what really happened, there.”
“He was more than just a deserter,” Robinson went on to say. “He was an out and out traitor.”
Bergdahl didn’t merely go AWOL, Robinson noted. After expressing his hatred for America and his officers, the private left the base, actively seeking out the enemy. Robinson’s sources contend he collaborated with the enemy during wartime.
Robinson maintains that many more than six soldiers were killed while searching for Bergdahl – who was taken captive on July 2, 2009. In June 2009, there were 24 US servicemen killed in Afghanistan. In the month of July, Robinson notes, “the number jumped to 44 killed – an increase of 83% in a month.” During the next month even more servicemen were killed.
Keep that in mind, while the Obama administration and its acolytes in the media continue their smear campaign to discredit the soldiers who served alongside Bergdahl.
