Skip to comments.Bowe Bergdahl deal compromised US national security and President Obama should be held accountable

The admission is in; the sentence awaits us. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl admitted deserting his Afghan post and endangering fellow troops. By all accounts this is the most serious betrayal of presidential authority in my life time.
In 2014 President Obama attempted to cover Bergdahl with the achievement of a war hero, even inviting his Idaho based parents to the Rose Garden to celebrate news of his release. President Obama pointed out at the time that five Taliban leaders were freed from Guantanamo so that Bergdahl could be released from captivity. To gild the lily, National Security Adviser, Susan Rice, said Bergdahl served the United States with honor and distinction.
Yet everyone in the White House and the Pentagon knew this was a lie with monumental implications. In fact, Army officials refused to list Bergdahl as a POW. An internal 2009 Army report found that he walked off his post on more than one occasion and even said he wanted to join the ranks of the enemy. This report also noted he shipped his laptop back to Idaho with a note expressing his disillusionment with the American position in the war.

The Kenyan is the one compromised. Give him Death Sentence and give Bowe the same. Give Bowe’s parents some “big time” for milking the entire matter for money.
By all accounts this is the most serious betrayal of presidential authority in my life time.
How about President Bill Clinton’s sale of advanced tech to the Chinese so they could pose a credible missle threat to us and the world? Their rocket program was at a dead end.
How about President Obama’s pulling out of Iraq, pushing for the destabilization of the middle east, and giving the go ahead to destroy Libya?
Berdahl is bad, but it is below those monstrosities.
Was is Susan Rice that said Bergdahl served with “distinction”?
Oh yeah. He’ll probably get locked up the same time as hildeast.
Can we somehow put his father in the same cell?
As POTUS our commander in chief is entitled to make a bad deal. Keeping people like Clinton from making deals involving Loral is OUR job. Could be too much to ask as the government gets bigger. Vert’s just don’t pay enough attention.
Gitmo is underutilized.
Dear President Donld J. Trump, Tucker is right, please do not kick this down the road so that Donald Jr has to deal with it in 2024.
Tucker Carlson news post:
After watching Hannity tonight and hearing the shocking revelations of the Uranium One bribery scandal which directly profited HRC, involved Eric Holder, Robert Mueller, the current number 2 at the DOJ Rosenstein, James Comey and HRC who all knew and participated in covering this up since 2009 our current president Trump has no choice but to....
- Declare a breech of national security has occurred.
- Revoke immediately the deal with Uranium One and stop all shipments to Russia of Uranium pancake. (Use the DHS and military if need be)
- Immediately FIRE deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.
- Immediately demand AG Jeff Sessions end his recusal due to national security issues and lead the investigation and prosecution of those involved from Hillary Clinton on down the line and if he refuses then fire him immediately.
- Immediately demand Mueller and his entire team be disbanded due to Mueller's direct involvement in this bribery scandal. If he does not fire him.
- Immediately freeze the assets of the Clinton Foundation, The Clinton Global Initiative, the personal assets of HRC.
- Revoke HRC passport and have her return to the USA for prosecution immediately.
- Have arrest warrants issued for those involved, seize heir assets, any documents related to this and put every resource available to determine the scope, magnitude and range of damages done to the nation.
- Find out who else was involved, knew, covered up ad or suppressed this news and prosecute them.
At a minimum this is racketeering and influence peddling by HRC and these people named. It could even lead to sedition. America must see this prosecuted and justice meted out.
If that is to happen it will have to come by the hands of Patriots, not the US G0vt.
While I love President Trump, he is but one man fighting a tide of corruption, slime, and vermin, as we sit on the sidelines and demand more and more from him..
"Rices characterization of Bergdahl was contradicted by the testimony of soldiers who had served with him and claimed he was a deserter whose selfish act unnecessarily endangered the lives of those who were sent out to look for him. When those reports surfaced, State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf (now a Fox News contributor) downplayed them as rumor. my emphasis)
Harf is a disgrace who lied for her job. Fox should put Tammy Bruce in Harf's place....Bruce is a fair and balanced liberal.....Harf provided fairy tales (lies) for Obama and Hillary.
Where were military commanders when this went down? Did any resign in shock? Did any leak the real details to the MSM? Did they react like any normal American or did they look the other way as if they were Congressional leaders?
Don't say "we," MaineMan. I donated (I'm not rich, my time is all I have to give) 450 hours last summer and fall to the GOP campaign in my hometown. We won everything in our county.
I know this sounds self-serving; but if everybody did this, President Trump would have an easier time of draining the swamp.
Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama usurped the office of President.
He is not a natural born citizen.
He is untouchable because everyone in the District of Corruption knew he was ineligible and allowed him to usurp the office.
They are ALL complicit in the violation of the Constitution.
That’s why he is untouchable.
If only we lived in a country that treated all criminals the same. You know, equal justice for all. Great concept. Oh well.
The only child of Donald Trump with two citizen parents is Tiffany. The rest are ineligible.
I’ll confess an unpopular opinion. The radio podcast “Serial” had a 13-part series built out of some recordings a guy did with Bergdahl. (And yes, the podcast creators did interview other soldiers in his outfit, who really detest what he did.)
a) idealistic kid — and no clue how Religion of Peace operates
b) his chain of command didn’t want to listen to his concerns, thus leadership failure
c) Bergdahl made repeated efforts to escape his captors
None of this excuses what he did. It does help explain it. The whole series gives a bit of perspective. But please go dig up the entire podcast, listen to it, and form your own opinions.
Ditto Obama, for trading HVTs for this bastard.
