Something major is going on behind the scenes and this is a diversion.
I don't think it's some huge mystery. O is a liberal military hater, that is just my personal opinion for certain reasons. Now he's put our military members all over the world at an even greater risk, well done you asshole

maybe they did... i havent kept up on this.. but if anybody has answers, i'd love to know the rest of the story.

*edit* also, they said that they knew he was trying to contact the taliban... then they said the morning the found that he was missing, they had no idea what had happened. so, where did the knowledge that he was trying to contact the enemy come from and why didnt that knowledge come up when they found he was missing? Megyn Kelly asked them what their strongest evidence was and the answer was 'he left his gear behind' and 'two local kids told us they saw him'.... that's not a very strong case. im obviously not getting the full story....so keep that in mind, however... from my POV, which is somebody how has only watched the release video and these two interviews, i dont buy these platoon member's stories at all.
Because its all bullshit.

Re: Interviews with 6 of Bergdahl's Platoon Mates.

If Bergdahl had been legitimately captured, then he wouldn't have been the first low-ranking grunt in such a position. I remember reading at least a few stories of soldiers being captured throughout the years. But the main difference between him and them was that they were killed and their remains dumped -- and later discovered -- in relatively short order. Bergdahl, on the other hand, was held for 5 years.

His value as a bargaining chip was no greater than theirs had been. That said, it begs the question: what was his immediate value to the enemy? The common sense answer is "information."

Re: Interviews with 6 of Bergdahl's Platoon Mates.

^^ which would suggest it was premeditated. Getting in touch with the Taliban isn't all that hard to do. They for some years use to sit in Yahoo chat rooms preaching their rhetoric, prob. still do. So they are all over the interwebs too, If his hippy dad has been in on this from the start, he may have been the middle man contacts via his little Imac

Re: Interviews with 6 of Bergdahl's Platoon Mates.

PARIS - Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has told people treating him at a U.S. military medical facility in Germany that he was tortured, beaten and held in a cage by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after he tried to escape on at least two occasions, a senior U.S. official said Sunday.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss what Bergdahl has revealed about the conditions of his captivity.

The official said it was difficult to verify the accounts Bergdahl has given since his release a week ago. Bergdahl told his captors the cage he was kept in for a time was made of metal, and completely dark.

Bowe Bergdahl: White House says Taliban threatened to kill him
Bergdahl, now 28, was captured in June 2009 after he disappeared from his infantry unit. He was held for nearly five years by Taliban militants.

The New York Times reported Sunday that military doctors at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany say that while Bergdahl is physically able to travel he's not yet emotionally prepared to be reunited with his family. He has not yet spoken to his family.

Officials also told the New York Times about concerns they have regarding "media exposure."

Bergdahl was returned to the U.S. military in exchange for the release of five Taliban militants from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The deal, which the White House brokered without consulting Congress, ignited a political firestorm that shows no signs of abating.

Bergdahl backlash: White House tries to sway senators with video
Lawmakers, both Republicans and Democrats, who initially praised Bergdahl's release, quickly backed off amid questions about whether he was a deserter who walked away from his post and an outcry over the exchange. Meanwhile, the administration has been mounting a concerted effort to push back on its critics. Some of Bergdahl's fellow soldiers maintain that Americans died during efforts to find and save him.

On Wednesday, Bergdahl's hometown of Hailey, Idaho, abruptly canceled plans for a welcome-home celebration, citing security concerns. And on Saturday, the FBI said Bergdahl's family had received threats that are being investigated by federal, state and local authorities.

Obama defends Bergdahl’s controversial release
The military has already conducted at least one officials investigation into Bergdahl's disappearance. One of the officers who conducted the investigation interviewed many of the same soldiers who are now calling him a deserter. They described him as always on time, dressed in proper uniform and courteous, a little quirky "but not freaky."

Although Bergdahl had sneaked off the outpost once before, his superiors never found out and his buddies thought it was neat he had gotten away with it.

The investigating officer could not reach any definite conclusions about what Bergdahl was thinking when he disappeared for good, but he speculated that the good soldier was simply "bored" with the routine of standing guard.

The investigating officer also found evidence of a poorly run unit. For instance, there was inconsistent accounting for sensitive equipment such as night-vision goggles.

He also found gaps in the perimeter set up to guard the outpost, gaps which Bergdahl took advantage of on the night of his disappearance.

Re: Interviews with 6 of Bergdahl's Platoon Mates.

I honestly don't see the taliban tolerating ANY attempt of escapes, much less from a normal grunt.

Re: Interviews with 6 of Bergdahl's Platoon Mates.

It's fitting that he tried to desert from the enemy as well, though.

Re: Interviews with 6 of Bergdahl's Platoon Mates.

'They' have this on the HIGH SPIN cycle.

Obama gave up 5 hardcore Taliban master killers for one left wing Occutard deserter.

And 'they' are trying to pass this off as a 'win'.

Yearight.

Exactly! And now the terrorists are free to carry on with their agenda. How many more will die thanks to this unwise decision?
