Obama Regime Covering Up For Traitor Bergdahl At Trial (Video)

Obama Admin Had Tapes Proving Bergdahl Deserted And Joined Taliban; Ignored Them At Trial – Gateway Pundit

.

Deserter Bowe Bergdahl with the Taliban.

.
Retired Colonel David Hunt broke the news on The O’Reilly Factor that the the Obama administration had proof that Bowe Bergdahl deserted to the Taliban.

The Obama administration did not use the evidence in his trial.

Colonel David Hunt explained it:

Col. David Hunt (retired): June 30, 2009, Bergdahl deserts his post in southeast Afghanistan. July 1st and 2nd, in a standard briefing to a commander of his unit, Fourth Brigade ot the 25th Infantry division, we have tapes of Taliban talking on Bergdahl’s phone saying that Bergdahl wanted to join them. And we have the Taliban on their own phones talking about Bergdahl trying to join them. This information was known July 2nd on and yet we still traded him for five terrorists, had a White House ceremony and now we’ve taken two years since he’s come back to do something which takes 90 days. The government has not yet and it doesn’t sound like it’s going to even use these tapes against Sgt Bergdahl.

Bill O’Reilly: How did they get the tapes?

Col. Hunt: It doesn’t make sense. None of it makes any sense on Bergdahl.

Bill O’Reilly: How did the government get the tapes?

Col. David Hunt: There are programs, we’ve been doing it since World War II, in which we listen to the enemy, and people who are speaking Pashtun and any language the Taliban in that section are using, were listening because they were told to and they were also listening to Bergdahl’s phone. What they heard was the Taliban on Bergdahl’s phone because he had joined them by then. So it’s a military program.

Bill O’Reilly: So, once again the tapes say that Bergdahl deserted and wanted to join the Taliban.

Col. Hunt: Yes the tapes are available. The government’s not using them.

The Obama administration knows these tapes are out there yet chose not to use the evidence during Bergdahl’s trial.

It’s just the latest Obama scandal.

Patriot Gary Sinise Demands An Explanation From Obama Regime Concerning Bergdahl Prisoner Swap

Hollywood Star Gets Fed Up With Obama, Gives Him A One-Sentence Demand That’s Making Waves – Western Journalism

.

.
As Western Journalism reported, U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was recently charged with desertion months after he was released from Taliban captivity in exchange for five suspected terrorists. The pursuit of such charges has been discussed since several of his fellow soldiers described his actions prior to being captured by enemy fighters while stationed in Afghanistan in 2009.

He reportedly announced that he no longer wished to fight for the U.S. and left his platoon, leading to a search mission that cost as many as eight other soldiers their lives.

Nevertheless, the Obama administration approved a deal that would bring Bergdahl home while freeing potentially dangerous prisoners – some of whom have been linked to new terror plots since their release.

For Gary Sinise, an actor, musician, and dedicated military supporter, the executive branch must account for its actions. He took to Twitter this week to insist that the administration “must explain, especially 2 families of those lost attempting 2 find him,” the rationale behind the prisoner swap.

His post quickly gained traction with roughly 1,000 users adding it to their collection of favorite tweets and another 1,250 or so sharing it with their followers as of this writing.

A clear majority of the post’s dozens of responses were supportive.

One user wrote that it is “refreshing” to see “a Hollywood star with the guts to stand up for our veterans!”

Others who echoed Sinise’s frustration, however, were less than optimistic about awaiting any response from the White House.

“It will never happen,” one post predicted. “They never explain anything. It’s all just ‘fake scandals.’”

Thanks Barack… Terrorist Mastermind Traded For Bergdahl Is Back At Work

U.S. Intel Officials Say Taliban Terror Mastermind Traded For Bergdahl Is Back At Work – Independent Journal Review

.

.
Just two days after reports surfaced that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be labeled a deserter by the U.S. Army, intelligence officials now suspect that one of the five terrorists swapped for Bergdahl is back to work.

According to CNN:

The officials would not say which of the five men is suspected. But an ongoing U.S. intelligence program to secretly intercept and monitor all of their communications in Qatar turned up evidence in recent months that one of them has “reached out” to try to encourage militant activity, one official said. The official would offer no further details.

Under current law, this act placed the man in the category of being “suspected” of re-engaging in terrorist or insurgent activities. However, several officials say there is now a debate inside the administration that the intelligence may be stronger than the “suspected” classification. Some elements of the intelligence community believe the information is strong enough to classify the man as “confirmed” for returning to illegal activities.

The Obama administration has received a lot of heat for the swap of Bergdahl for five, mid-to-high level threat Guantanamo detainees. After this new information, there will be a lot more heat coming.

The situation: Five known terrorists were swapped for a soldier who’s likely soon to be labeled a deserter by the U.S. Army. One of those five terrorists is now “back to work.” That bloody business happens to be killing Americans.

Just days after the controversial trade for Bergdahl, President Obama reinforced his decision by declaring:

“I wouldn’t be doing it if I thought that it was contrary to American national security.”

Given the new military intelligence and recent reports surrounding Bowe Bergdahl, this already controversial move by the Obama administration just became even more questionable.

Obama Regime Orchestrated Campaign Of Threats And Intimidation Against Servicemen In Bergdahl Cover-Up

Report: WH Orchestrated Campaign Of Threats And Intimidation Against Servicemen To Keep Them Quiet About Bergdahl – Breitbart

.

.
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.

The Top 8 White House Bergdahl Lies (Joseph Miller)

The Top 8 White House Bergdahl Lies – Joseph Miller

.
…………

.
It’s been just over a week since Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released in exchange for five senior Taliban leaders held in Guantanamo Bay, and so far the Obama administration is averaging nearly a lie a day. Here are the top eight administration claims, laid out and debunked in full.

LIE #1: BERGDAHL WAS VERY SICK

Bergdahl’s health was not rapidly deteriorating, as the administration claimed. Reports have leaked that the only medical problems Bergdahl is suffering from are “gum and skin disorders” associated with poor hygiene.

The video of Sgt. Bergdahl’s handover to American forces that was released by the Taliban shows Sgt. Bergdahl looking relatively healthy. In the tape, he is seen walking into the company of U.S. special operations forces and then climbing into the aircraft without assistance. The video also shows him lucid and communicating with his captors. We know from previous reporting that he was able to write down the letters “SF” with a question mark on paper once inside the helicopter, as a way of asking his rescuers if they were special forces. This proved that his fine motor skills were intact, and that he was aware of his surroundings.

It has also been reported that one of the few exchange between Bergdahl’s rescuers and his captors was a question about his health. The Taliban said he was not sick. Finally, reports from Landsthul Regional Medical Center in Germany state that Sgt. Bergdahl has been in stable condition.

LIE #2: THE TALIBAN THREATENED TO KILL BERGDAHL

To further justify its decision not to inform Congress (in violation of the law), administration officials claimed that there was a threat to kill Bergdahl if details of the prisoner swap were released. But Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has stated that there is no credible information indicating that there was a threat to Berghdal’s life.

LIE #3: THE ADMINISTRATION INFORMED CONGRESS ABOUT THE SWAP

Reports from Capitol Hill have informed us that the administration last discussed the possibility of a prisoner transfer with members of Congress several years ago. At that time, there was bipartisan and bicameral opposition to the idea. The law requires that the administration notify Congress 30 days prior to the release of any detainee from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The administration has admitted that it engaged in negotiations to secure the deal that set Bergdahl free for over a week prior to the swap. During that week, the administration never informed Congress – and only notified congressional leaders after the deal had been reached, after the detainees from Guantanamo were released, and after Berghdal was in American custody.

It appears that the administration chose to willfully violate the law by not informing Congress, as we now know that there was no credible threat to Bergdahl’s life, he wasn’t ill, and the administration was negotiating for over a week with his captors.

LIE #4: THE U.S. DIDN’T NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS

The president’s national security adviser, Ambassador Susan Rice of Benghazi infamy, returned to the Sunday morning talk show circuit last weekend to defend the Obama administration’s decision to release the terrorists. When CNN’s Candy Crowley asked, “Point blank, did the U.S. negotiate with terrorists?” Ambassador Rice said no.

She claimed that by negotiating through the government of Qatar, the United States didn’t negotiate with terrorists. The problem is that the government of Qatar wasn’t holding Sgt. Bergdahl captive – the Haqqani Network was. The Obama administration officially designated the Haqqani Network a terrorist group in 2012.

LIE #5: BERGDAHL SERVED WITH HONOR AND DISTINCTION

On ABC’s “This Week,” Rice said that Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.” By all accounts his service was not honorable, but was in fact distinct: Bergdahl has the distinction of being the only American soldier to desert his post in Afghanistan and walk into the arms of the enemy.

Statements about him being a traitor, however, are premature. There is not yet a clear indication as to why he deserted his post, or if he aided the enemy. Claims that he trained the Taliban in explosives are hard to believe, because as a private first class infantryman in the Army, Bergdahl would have had little to no explosives training other than basic familiarization, which every soldier receives.

But there is plenty of reason to be plenty suspicious. It’s been said that Bergdahl mailed home his personal items two weeks before he walked off his post – something completely abnormal in a combat zone. It has also been said that he left behind his weapon, body armor and helmet, only taking a compass with him. Additionally, reports in the press stated that Afghan villagers have said Bergdahl wandered around asking to meet with Taliban.

Only time will tell if these claims are true, but it is becoming pretty clear based on the testimony of his former platoon mates, and the Army’s preliminary investigation into the incident, that Bergdahl did in fact desert his post.

LIE #6: THE RELEASE OF THE TERRORISTS POSES LITTLE OR NO RISK TO THE U.S.

Just days after being released from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba family members of one of the five detainees released by the United States told NBC news that the former Taliban commander, Mullah Norullah Nori, planned to return to the fight in Afghanistan. Nori is a former Taliban Provincial Governor and is said to be responsible for the Shia Muslim genocide in Western Afghanistan prior to 9/11. The attacks he ordered against his own countrymen resulted in the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians who were slaughtered for practicing a different form of Islam than the Taliban.

LIE #7: THE FIVE TERRORISTS RELEASED FROM GUANTANAMO BAY WILL BE UNDER U.S. MONITORING

U.S. officials have publicly stated that the United States will be actively monitoring the released terrorists while they remain in Qatar for one year. The administration claimed that the terrorists would remain in Qatari custody for at least one year before being permitted to travel outside that country. Qatari government officials, however, said that the deal that was reached did not allow for U.S. monitoring of the detainees, and that they would be free to move about the country while they remained in Qatar.

The Qataris did say that they would be monitoring the detainees while they remained as guests in their country. This is not comforting, though, because Qatar has failed to do so at least twice in the past – despite guarantees made to the U.S. government.

In 1996, the United States believed that Qatari intelligence officials were monitoring the movements of Khalid Sheik Mohammad while he was in their country. He was able to evade their monitoring efforts and went on to mastermind the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Another terrorist the Qataris were supposed to be watching after his release from Guantanamo Bay Cuba, Jarallah al-Marri, also managed to leave Qatar and was arrested in London in 2009.

LIE #8: THIS WAS THE “LAST, BEST CHANCE” TO BRING BERGDAHL HOME

I don’t know what crystal ball the administration was using to make this claim, but there is no indication that this is true.

To date, the Taliban have failed to engage in any meaningful peace talks with the U.S. or the government of Afghanistan. The Taliban have said that they will not negotiate as long as foreign troops remain in Afghanistan. With the U.S. and her coalition allies scheduled to leave Afghanistan at the end of this year, it is quite plausible that resolving the status of Bergdahl and the five terrorists that were just released from Guantanamo Bay could have helped secure a larger peace agreement. That is pure speculation, but is no more speculative than the administration’s claim that this was the last, best chance to secure Bergdahl’s release. What is their speculation based on?

Bergdahl was release May 31. In the days since, the administration has pushed the narrative that he was ill; his life was threatened; Congress was informed; this was not a negotiation with terrorists; he served with honor and distinction; the released Taliban leaders are not a threat; the Gitmo Five will be monitored by the U.S.; and this was the “last, best chance” to bring Bergdahl home. Every single one of these statements has been shown to be false – to be a lie.

So which is it, Mr. President? We’d all like to know.
