Photo of Bowe Bergdahl Smiling with Taliban Commander Uncovered
Breitbart ^ | July 10, 2014 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 07/10/2014 5:39:53 PM PDT by COUNTrecount

The Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI) has uncovered a tweet containing a photo of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl standing and smiling with a Taliban commander.

Bergdahl became the center of intense media scrutiny when stories of his desertion and sympathy for the Taliban dominated news that Obama had traded five Gitmo prisoners for his release on May 31.

According to Fox News, the photo MEMRI found is "an undated photo" showing "an apparently happy Bergdahl posing with Taliban Commander Badruddin Haqqani."

This could be a propaganda photo for all we know....

We all know what he did before falling into the hands of the Taliban which is already enough to stand him up against a wall with a blindfold and a last request ...

I am not a defender of deserter Bergdahl, but saying he’s “happy” looks like a stretch to me. While his lips may be pulled into a “smile”, his brow is furrowed and his eyes aren’t smiling at all. The other guy looks like he’s just had his way with BB.

A signal.

The usual didactic expression of an Islamic cleric/ expounder of ideology is to point the finger upward, as if to say “BIG POINT HERE”.

Now, maybe, this signal is... “LITTLE POINT HERE”.

Or

“I can’t make a big point here, lemme make a little one, this dude with me is a little playa in a bigger scheme”.

Pray for our heroes who lost life and limb because of this guy. Those harmed are having a very difficult time dealing with this. It has dredged up memories most don’t want. Those who served with him want him dead and they want him to pay like they have. Imagine your life ruined, body parts lost, career over because the ballerina couldn’t hack it in war and decided to go native.

“Mexican cartel violence is at an all-time high along the increasingly porous southern border yet the Obama Administration has shut down a critical intelligence agency dedicated to identifying, tracking and severing the nexus between drug trafficking and terrorism.”

The last report from the NDIC in 2012 had dire warnings about growing problems on the border that were “tantamount to living in a war zone”.
Obama closed NDIC in 2012, and said Holder’s DEA was going to be taking over the NDIC work. The DEA has no reports since 2012.

Never mind the deserter.

What about these scumbags the MOSLEM in the White House released?

These 5 were named by the Taliban as the ones they wanted out of GB.

This is like releasing Hess, Goering, Borrman, Streicher and Jodl instead of trying them at Nuremberg.
