Speculating on the Bergdahl prisoner swap, it occurred to me certain observations did not square with the White House narrative. One: Bergdahl seemed to be visibly upset when he was picked up from the Taliban. Two: one Taliban seemed to be patting Bergadhl on the shoulder in a consoling way. Three: Obama did not offer similar swaps for other American hostages.
Now, it has come out on Fox News that the Army will charge Bergdahl with desertion. Bergdahl was, obviously afraid of that, and, of course, would explain why he was upset at being traded for the Taliban leaders. Another reason for not wanting to come back to America is that his sympathies were with the Taliban.
Obama is not happy that these conclusions would come to light. The White House has put pressure on the Army not to charge Bergdahl. When they were unsuccessful, they pressured the Army to sit on the decision until Obama is out of office. In this, they have been partially successful. The decision was made in October 2014 but has not been released.
As I said in my last article, I think Obama is too egotistical to believe in any God but himself, but his actions show a definite bias in favor of Islam. If Bergdahl had converted to Islam, it would follow that Obama would do more for him than other hostages. It also follows Obama’s tendency to favor Islam by releasing the five terrorists. Again, this is all speculation, but it presents a very compelling argument that Obama had a motive other than retrieving a hostage soldier.
What conclusions fit these three observations? Again, just speculating, could it be that Bergdahl did desert, he was forced, against his will, to be swapped for the “Gitmo Five.” Obama wants to close Gitmo and thought he could get rid of the worst terrorists while going around the law which said he must consult with Congress and give thirty days notice. As the old saying goes, “It’s better to ask forgiveness than permission.” Especially when Congress is too wimpy to do anything about it. Congress’s answer was to ask Popeye for a hamburger “for which they would gladly pay later.”
In my many years I have come to a
conclusion that one useless man
is a shame, two is a law firm,
and three or more is a congress.
