Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his base in Afghanistan June 30, 2009, and by December of that same year, the president's principal military adviser, then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Mike Mullen, knew those details, according to three of Bergdahl's platoon mates who spoke to Fox News.
"I asked him (Mullen) if he knew about Bergdahl and that he deserted and he (Mullen) told me that he knew of the circumstances surrounding his walking off," former Sgt. Matt Vierkant told Fox,"(and) that they were developing leads and following leads, trying to do everything they could to get him back."
After pulling security duty for the chairman, who was doing a swing through Afghanistan in December 2009, Vierkant, along with Evan Buetow and Cody Full, said they met informally with Mullen and about eight other soldiers. After a pep talk about the mission, the three said Mullen asked the squad leaders and platoon leadership to take a break.
"He sat down with all the lower enlisted guys and the team leaders and basically he said, 'Hey, what do you want to know...You got any questions? He's like, I'm an open book. Let's just have a little question and answer session," Buetow explained.
"So Matt asked him, you know Bergdahl deserted, what's going on with that? And Admiral Mullen said, 'Yes, we know all the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl walking away from the OP (outpost,)and we're still working on getting him back, figuring out where he is and kind of figuring out that whole situation."

At this point what difference does it...
Please let this insanity of an administration come to an end.
I'd rather have President Joe right now.
Of course, the Army of Hasan knew.
It also covered up the MURDERS of Americans in uniform,
both in foreign lands and domestic. (=TREASON)
AND NO ONE HAS DONE ANYTHING ABOUT IT, except
to make Americans the target as ISIS builds
bases from Mexico to Maine.
I’m not sure of the context, but to me, “OP” was always observation post, not outpost.
That aside, I thought from the start that Mullin was an Obama sucking twink.
HE DEFECTED TO THE TALIBAN AND SHARED U.S. TROOP TACTICS WHICH RESULTED IN THEIR MORE ACCURATE IED ATTACKS, KILLING MORE AMERICANS THAN BEFORE. 0dunghole KNEW this, too.
Satan has orchestrated this evil, and sinful men and women who care nothing of God elected this illegitimate traitor. Until Christ returns, mankind is going to get a lot worse.
This information won’t get any play outside of the conservative Fox commentators, AM radio conservatives and blogs.
The media that promotes and protects the Dems won’t touch it.
Fact of life.
I least we got to hear from that weird creepy dad, here pictured next to Sgt. Bergdahl's father.
You’re absolutely right, the commie media cover for the commie in the WH.
Obama knew in 2009.
“Please let this insanity of an administration come to an end.”
Just keep thanking the Congress for letting this go on.
Which would be a clear cut case for treason. If he knew Bergdahl was a defector then I don’t know how much more clear it can get when it comes to “giving aid and comfort”. This IS absolutely without a doubt treason!!! This Congress if they do not remove this President and try him for that then they are just as complicit. The code is VERY clear.............
18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
Since his term started I’ve counted 16 acts of treason (which is my tagline) by him. This Congress is an absolute joke. THEY are the real villains in all this. We all know what Obama is and they refuse to do anything about it no doubt because he is black. They are the biggest pussies on this planet.
Hellm I knew it and I was Germany at the time.
Mullen was a PC yes man. Nothing else.

Thanks you incompetent douche bag
As the POTUS he has no excuse to be ignorant of that information. That would arguably be a cause for invoking the 25th Amendment under Article II Section 1.
Take a look at his father’s ‘likes’ and ‘channel subscriptions’ sometime. Speaks volumes. Especially the ‘Marx’ one.
