Only hours after appearing at a press conference to give thanks for the freeing of his POW son in exchange for five top Taliban leaders, Bob Bergdahl returned to Twitter to promote a Guardian video in which family members lobby for the release of five Tunisians held at Guantanamo Bay.

Earlier, Bergdahl had apparently deleted a tweet reading, “I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners.”

Editor’s note: This post has been updated with additional tweets.

  • Informed&Concerned

    His 1st amendment rights are wearing thin if he is endorsing the release of those avowed to continue the jihad against all Christians and all Americans . . .

    • Utopia Can Never be Achieved

      What’s next for this guy? He lays his prayer rug down next to Obama’s and they both face the Mecca?

      • Michelle ✓classified

        Can totally see that happening. In fact, wouldn’t be surprised it happened in the Oval Office right after their press conference yesterday.

        • Modres

          Jeff: “You are clearly deeply racist, bigoted, insecure, and uneducated.”

          First, you are clearly deluded. You can’t be racist against Islam since anyone can be a Muslim.

          Secondly, Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter and SIX military troops lost their lives looking for him.

          Third, the FIVE Taliban commanders who were released in exchange for the deserter will waste no time in starting attacks against America again.

          Fourth, you believe YOU are an American? Think again. It is leftist scum like yourself that has brought America nearly to its knees and we know you’re not done yet.

          ALL progressives are traitors to America – end of story.

          Here is a clip of Jeff the Goon.

          “Muslims are crazy! Christians are sane”

          I took it off his dash board, looks as if he is just a Troll! Just remeber any time a libtard is loosing a argument and such,the first thing the idiots do is yell “RACIST”

        • carlenefrazierwendel

          Why did Obama not tell the Congress about the release???
          Were they not supose to have been the ones to decide on that?

          • Michelle ✓classified

            The law is that they are to be at least informed about the deal 30 days prior to it happening. That did not occur. Barry yet again broke the law (shocking, I know!). Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) chairs the House Armed Services Committee and he was supposed to be informed, he was not and he’s planning hearings on the matter. (Mighty proud to say that Rep. McKeon is my representative in the House)

          • TheKing

            Hearings, Hearings,Hearings, Where does it end? This administration has been engaged in altogether too many scams and illegal acts and violations of our congressional laws. It is time to put some MEAT into these issues, hold someone accountable. Want to bet all the scandals have the palm print of Obama on them, although his cronies will cover his butt, but for what reason? Do they support killing the Christian nation?

          • TheKing

            Obama need a BIG Photo opportunity to take attention away from the VA scandal and he needed it fast. He well knew the congress would slow things down via debate and/;or disapprove such an action. I would bet had he gone to the Congress as required by law (again Obama acts against our laws) he would have been shot down with the exchange. Now comes the fight – the Obama admin attempting to justify their action and their justification for going around the congress AGAIN. SO, CAN ANYONE GUESS WHAT THE NEXT SCANDAL IS GOING TO BE ABOUT? (I say something to do with the banks that will hurt the conservatives)

            What’s wrong with Islam?
            Well in basis nothing if those who hold to that religion have advanced past the 10th Century in their thinking.
            However the Islamofanatics haven’t & they are the movers & shakers behind Al’Quaida that keep the other, more modern, Muslims cowering in fear.
            Just so you know I’m a former Marine of mixed racial heritage, a Heathen, & a monogamous lesbian so if Sha’ria law ever gains ascendancy in the US I’d be right at the top of the list for “judgement of Allah” so I have a dog in the fight.

          • TheKing

            Islam has no human right provisions. Their Sharia law is but one example. THen there is the fact that their Quaran dictates all infidels (those who refuse to abecome Muslims)O must be killed and they are making progress. The terrorists are slowly taking over nations in the middle east and africa and concentrating on imposing their laws onto western societies. Time for a constitutional amendment:
            “The United States will NOT tolerate any religion that advocates the killing or maiming or other humans for whatever reason.

    • Jeff

      Disagree. He is an American citizen. Therefore he has a first amendment right to express these sentiments. This is law. National law. I do think he is teetering on the edge of what is acceptable (speaking as a patriot) but it is still protected constitutionally

      • Chrissy the Hyphenated

        The whole point of the First Amendment is to protect UNPOPULAR speech. But there’s no place that says the rest of us have to not come out and SAY how very unpopular we find his speech. … Except, oops, the PC Police. But so far they haven’t gotten themselves constitutionally consecrated for which we can all be thankful.

    • Chiefs420

      Once again, you “patriots” show your grasp of the constitution (both letter and intent) is tenuous at best.

      “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”

      I’m not sure how this has anything to do with the first amendment.

      I shared Brad Thor’s story on TheBlaze.com with my son who is in the Army. He replied saying that he knows a guy that was in this Sergeant’s brigade, and he said he is a deserter, not a P.O.W. Lots of fishy things with this whole situation!

      • KynBay

        My step-brother who has had 3 tours (Afghanistan and Iraq) said the same. Clearly stated that he was a deserter. He and his fellow soldiers are not very happy with this fiasco.

      • skyway1234

        My nephew is former Army, served in Iraq, and he says the rumor in the Army is that this guy is a total traitor.

    • http://LoveBreedsAccountability.com/ Hank Rand ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      It’s disappointing that Twitchy endears this deserter with the assumed designation of “POW.”

      If it turns out he was captured in action or kidnapped from his bunk, cool…POW.

      For now, all accounts suggest he deserted his post voluntarily…ultimately leading to the death of at least 6 honorable soldiers, the release of 5 terrorists and the setting of an awful precedent by our government for terrorists around the world.

      I’m sorry, but if you wander off in to Taliban-riddled Afghanistan armed only w/ your recent proficiency in their language and a deep resentment for America and the US mission – “captured” is overly generous and “POW” is downright insulting.

    • Frustrated Teacher

      He’s got the beard for it….

  • Juan Pablo

    What’s with his jihadi beard? You’d think he’d be a little more angry at the people who kidnaped his son…even if he was a possible deserter

    • Michelle ✓classified

      I was tempted to judge his beard before I truly understood his stand on things, but now that he’s doubled-down on being anti-American, pro-Terrorists – his beard now makes perfect sense to me.

      • Utopia Can Never be Achieved

        I was tempted to check LinkedIn to see what profession they guy was in, but then was distracted by another tweet from the guy. When will the madness end?

        • Michelle ✓classified

          As of yesterday, I reserved having an opinion on his beard. When I saw it during the press conference my first reaction was, “Um, WTF? Is he one of them?” but I didn’t form an opinion because I have a handful of friends here in Los Angeles who have those beards – they’re simply free spirits, aging hippies and actually lean to the Right. But now? Oh now, it’s quite clear he fancies himself a fellow terrorist.

          • Stryder51

            Stockholm Syndrome by proxy, maybe?

    • Saito Sama

      You wouldn’t be alone in that fight Marine!

  • Penelope210

    Just wow! Guess those that thought he might just be acting like a jihadi sympathizer to help his son can now dispense with that naive assumption.

    • Michelle ✓classified

      That is correct. I WAS willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but now…he’s a solid traitor, anti-American and a total disgrace. Disgusted with him. Maybe I should have seen this coming with that beard…

      EDITED TO ADD: It wasn’t a naive assumption, it was those of us who have a practice of not making assumptions until more is revealed. I don’t jump to conclusions, and although I was willing to give this man the benefit as of yesterday, I have no problem with my being that way. Things aren’t always as they appear and I can not, will not form an opinion until I have full disclosure.

      • Penelope210

        I can appreciate that sentiment. I was watching twitter last night when one of the soldiers in his unit came forward telling his side of story, that Bowe deserted. It was actually talked about in 2009. Now 7 soldiers are coming forward and talking with a reporter.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          I saw those reports as well last night. But again, I was waiting to weigh it all before forming an opinion. I now have all the information I believe I need to form an opinion – this father is a terrorist cheerleader and so clearly anti-American. His son, well…regardless of what is being said about him, I will reserve an opinion until we hear reports from his own words. I would never, EVER want judgment passed or opinions formed of me until I’ve had a chance to speak for myself, regardless of what others had to say about me, so I can’t do it to someone else.

      OUR MARINE in Mexico has been imprisoned for over two months on drummed up charges and yet our government has done NOTHING to intervene on his behalf.

  • castlemonster

    And the Regime knows perfectly well what this guy is and how outrageously provocative it is to “trade” him for five (other) jihadis. It’s open antagonism of the right and malicious defiance toward the separation of powers. If Obama can do this on a whim, what can’t he do?

  • JSizzle

    Dad isn’t tweeting these things because he was trying to play to the enemy to get his son back. These are his beliefs and show where he stands. It is interesting that he attempted to be deceptive and delete his tweet about releasing all Guantanamo prisoners previously. Yet; here he is now, blatantly posting more of the same type of tweets in full view. No shame!

    Initially; I believed that it was a good thing to have an American soldier back. Now that more information has come out I believe that he should be tried for desertion. The military is the military; not a primary humanitarian organization. If he wasn’t fully understanding of his obligations and capable of fulfilling the duties he was assigned; he should not have signed up. You don’t take off on your own for selfish reasons and leave your fellow troops to deal with the life-threatening fallout. At the least; he should have thought of the danger he placed them in. His actions show that his allegiance was not and is not to America. I wonder if it is possible that this entire situation was a planned political stunt from enlistment?

    It is nauseating to think that this dad was at the White House espousing such radical views. Terrorists see this and it encourages them very much to continue doing what they do.

    • Juanita Garnto

      He should be tried and jailed for desertion. Remember there were lives lost looking for this POS. If it can be proven it was preplanned before enlistment, he should be tried for treason.

    • Jeff

      It doesn’t matter who holds that title. The President is the president. The proof is a snarky little comment about President Obama being a Muslim.

        That remark doesn’t make anyone – in your words – “deeply racist, bigoted, insecure, and uneducated. The very opposite of the definition of ‘American’ with which you pretend to identify.” This statement lessens your argument and/or point you are trying to make. It’s their opinion, you can certain disagree with it, but making blanketed statements like that appears that you are looking for a fight.

      • Ryan Schneider.

        Very well. I will give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume, for now, that you are consistant about the mandatory respect that you claim all presidents deserve. You must have a lot of resentment for liberal boomers who effectively killed that sacred tradition. Before Johnson, and particularly Nixon, the presidency was always held as you say, and rightly so, but that came to an end in the 60s and the precident that a president you don’t like is fair game for the worst emotional attacks was established. Conservatives and centrists generally tried to hold on to some dignity in discourse, but, really, how much abuse can we take before we are forced to respond in kind? If you seriously want a return to the kind of curtousy that motivated people to beat up paparazzi for trying to take embaressing photos of FDR in his wheel chair, then you need to focus your discipline on the left. Once a majority of them have learned the concept of shame, we will finally be able to drop our guard, (the best defense is a good offence), and return to mutually civil discorse, where we will still make critical judgements based on well reasoned observation, and express our dissapointments with as much self control as possible. Just remember, the left started this disrespect, and they will have to finish it.

          Nixon was much more a President than Obama could ever hope to be, he at least kept the faith with the military. His crime was trying to protect the people under him.

      • Utopia Can Never be Achieved

        Jeff, Hey, I’m a vet too for what it’s worth. One only needs to respect the office of the president, but not the president himself / herself. I don’t care if a president has a D, and R or an I after their name – if they don’t lead by example, then I don’t think full respect is warranted. When we have a president who says one thing, but does another, effect the citizens of the U.S.? Well, it sends a message to people that they don’t need to be truthful, to have ethics. It tells them that they don’t need to be honest. Do I think all citizens follow his lead? No. But, there are enough citizens that will easily think that if the president does it, it’s OK for them too.

      • Lou Cifer

        Respect is earned, not given, especially to one that blatantly lies, ignores the Constitution, goes around Congress at every opportunity, and thinks himself above the laws. The President is a citizen with a government job… that is it, the Constitution is his boss, he is not a ruler, he doesn’t get to make up the rules for his job. He defies the Constitution he should be impeached without hesitation. This should apply to every President, not just this one.

        • TheKing

          where is the dignity of our US Senators? They let a lying, America destroying President to enact laws on his own, commit violations at whim and donot hold him accountable. If I were a Senator I would be pissed that the Prez was taking away my responsibilities to enact laws. So, senators, stand up for America. Go on record as warning the President the congress will no longer tolerate his taking over the government and that further abuses will lead to the initiatiion of impeachment proceedings. Stand up for America not a Prez who is killing out nation.

        Thanks for your service, Brother. But where have you been the last 6 years? Moochelle said that she and BO-he was raised as a Muslim and Islamic law makes him a Muslim if his father was, they hated America until he was elected by the LIV’s. He is very different from all other POTUS. He behaves as an adolescent bully, taunting, insulting, belittling those who did not vote for him or who questions him or who he perceives as being in his way of deconstructing America. Who would have believed that someone elected to be President of all Americans would behave in this way? He is actively waging war on the rest of us, and any action taken to fight back is OK, after seeing how he operates. He and the Dems will destroy anyone in their way to re-make America.

        Nice demonstration of your oral skills and critical thinking, dropping the F-bomb in reference to the president. Speaking ill of the president doesn’t constitute treason, dingbat. The president of the US may well be a Muslim. Regardless of what you think of a faction that has a penchant for violence, hates Christians, gays, women, America and pretty much anything that isn’t them, that would make Obama a lying liar that lies, since when campaigning, he claimed to be a Christian. Of course, it’s just one in a pile of lies. Oh, and there’s always that conflict of interest thing.

    I have no issue with him lobbying for the release of his son, and that was accomplished. However, it remains to be seen what damage those five released men will cause, let alone any of the others that remain.

    My first reaction was that this kid was naive, now it looks like the father is also. The only people remaining at GITMO seem to be the worst. That place was such a political hot potato, the oops, sorry about that group was released a long time ago.

      Why would she be concerned with the status of their countertops when the father is making himself pretty clear as a terrorist cheerleader? Grow up, Cupcake.

      • GoldsteinsBook

        I can’t imagine what it would be like to only see brief clips of your Taliban-held son for five years. I’m not ready to call for the heads of Bergdahl and his dad just yet.

        The entire situation is strange…it’s interesting to speculate as to what ‘the real story’ is but, just like you and me, the Malkintents currently filling up Berdahl’s dad’s timelines with charges of treason don’t know the full story.

        Regardless, in a move that surprises no one, the Michelle Malkin model of getting her users to harass people they don’t know is working…just as it did when she was stalking a 7th-grader with a brain stem injury. You might recall she incorrectly informed her readers that Frost’s parents had granite countertops after she crept around the family’s house and peeked through their windows. I thought TBogg’s tweet was funny because it pokes fun at the worst excesses of some citizen journalists and their readers.

        • JaneSmith100

          I’m on the right and I pretty much agree with you. We don’t know what happened to this guy. Most likely he was raped and raped by his captors and that is the rumor I’m hearing. I don’t like McCain’s reaction and the entire right sort of disgusts me right now with the overreaction to getting this guy out.

          • carmenta

            Have you looked at ANY of the accounts of those who were serving with Bowe Bergdahl at the time he ‘left his post’? Have you read the names and bio’s of those killed while searching for him? Or the wounded? Before you accuse ‘the entire Right’ of over-reacting, perhaps you should accept that there are others who may be better informed of the circumstances and consequences of Bergdahls actions.

            Getting this guy out, in the way it has been accomplished, may come back to bite America, really, really hard.

          • lazypadawan

          Hmm, I can’t seem to find your criticism of Harry Reid and other Democrats calling the Koch brothers “un-American” for–gasp–supporting another point-of-view. Would you mind sharing that?

          • GoldsteinsBook

            You must have confused me with the caricature of a liberal you carry around to avoid engaging with someone who actually has liberal viewpoints on some issues.

            Harry Reid is an embarrassment and his painful attempt at populism is only highlighting the hypocrisy of The Democratic Party crying about the corrupting influence of money in politics. I would like to see some real reform in campaign finance but Harry Reid is hardly the right messenger. I also have a problem with US Congressmen publicly attacking private citizens.

            If you wanted to paint me as a hypocrite, you could have asked me what I think about Spike Lee’s tweeting the address of an elderly couple to his followers under the mistaken belief it was George ZImmerman’s. I think that’s a better comparison because Michelle Malkin encouraged her readers to read Free Republic pieces that were publishing the home address of a 7th grader. Like Lee, Malkin knew some of her readers would harass the family.

            I condemn Lee’s actions but. so far, you have refused to even discuss Malkin’s,

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      So it’s Michelle Malkin’s fault that Bergdahl keeps injecting himself into the public spotlight? O-kay.

      • GoldsteinsBook

        Of course not. I already explained why I thought TBogg’s tweet was funny.

  • silverburstgorilla

    Bowe Bergdahl’s dad retweeted an Afghan tweet celebrating Mujahedeen killing NATO soldiers. https://twitter.com/alemarahstudio/status/471646257539059713

    Click where it says 4 RETWEETS and you’ll find Robert Bergdahl. Or you could just go back in Bob’s timeline and find the RT (unless he deletes it, of course).

    When I Bing translated the linked Afghan page, it said this:

    “At 9 a.m. the Mujahedeen targeted tanks occupied forces RPG in the henduan Directorate Angell Herat province.

    Destroyed the tank completely, and killed two soldiers occupied and another seriously wounded.”

    What strikes me as the most interesting bit of information to date is bob’s comment to bowe during the interview the other day;
    “Bowe, I love you, I am your father, please recognize we are on a mission… I’m so proud about how far you were willing to go to help the Afghan people.”

    • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

      Bob takes himself very seriously but think about it who is Bob? From the looks of it he’s a crank. Did his immature son buy into his rants anti military anti war rants? Does it matter at this stage?

      They planted trees in Afghanistan to make up for the war ravaged country is that part of their mission? They plant trees ever year Bowe Bergdahl has been gone. Where I come from we call those people Hippies and Tree Huggers.

      I wouldn’t take anything Bob tweets or says very seriously no matter how he want’s people to believe he’s some kind of “player” on the international stage.

      If Bob had any sense- given his son’s situation believed to have gone AWOL from his Army post, he would shut up and stop communicating his anti American B.S.

      • drw

        Dismissing bob’s comments as the ramblings of a madman seems reasonable enough. But, whether this was a deliberate plan by the bergdhal’s or they were merely willing dupes, the evidence, to me, smacks of conspiracy. It’s possible, as you say, that bob’s hit the bong once too often, that doesn’t mean he’s not a participant in something of other’s manufacture and merely hasn’t the intelligence to properly play his part. It is unreasonable to assume that our enemies haven’t the capacity to conceive or carry out a plan of this nature and there are too many questions for me to allow the simple explanation. Call me paranoid but, this administration has clearly demonstrated a desire to eliminate Gitmo and a willingness to “negotiate” with the tali-scum and others of similar stripe. Add to that the evidence of extremist sympathy and the “phony scandals” of similar tone and one cannot believe them incapable of some level of complicity. I don’t mean to suggest a direct hand in planning or implementation but, certainly the possibility of a willingness to leave some questions unasked.
        I may be completely wrong and I pray for the sake of our country that I am. I’m not, at this point willing to give those involved the benefit of any doubt, fairness aside, that’s no longer a safe thing to do.

        • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

          I have little doubt that the trade for his son was a political calculation that will come back to bite us all. The reason – we are 6 months out from an election. But Bob himself comes off as little more than a useful idiot, and not above exploiting his son’s ordeal for profit and attention.

          • drw

            The timing is a bit convenient isn’t it? At least it fits the pattern thus far. I truly hope you’re right about bob’s motives and there’s no deeper explanation.

This is all an example of what he will continue to do even if we win the senate….him and Valerie are right on track to destroy America!

  • Dick Clark

    Being a DESERTER is bad enough but this POS is also a TURNCOAT TRAITOR…making anti American videos for the Taliban…videos that say the exact same things as his last emails to his father. Our moron president has once again shown his disconnected naivete by touting his latest violation of U.S. law, will somehow will make HIM a hero to the U.S. veterans that he’s now trying to play up to!

          They keep talking about him being reunited with his parent’s now they are talking next week.

          His health was so bad they had to make the trade now but his health is so good he’s going to be home with his parent’s next week?

          They acknowledge he deserted his post. If his parents want to visit him it should be while he’s in the brig awaiting trial for desertion none of this makes sense.

  • Melody Lanzatella

    Im NOT delighted about his release! As far as I can tell he was not a prisoner but a guest, that went there voluntarily!

  • Kevin H Fox

    He is providing aide and comfort to the enemy. Maybe we should send him and his son to Qatar with the terrorists so they can be with their people.

  • dalyrymple

    This is the big one. The American people do not like deserters and treasonous citizens, not in this kind of vein…..Edward Snowden is a different kind of case….In this one American soldiers were killed looking for this deserter…..The American people when they get the real story on the Bergdahls are not going to be happy about it….This is the big one. Democrats who defend Mr. Obama on this are going to be turned out in November……..especially if the news media keeps showing faces of the Detainees that were released for this soldier who deserted his post and put fellow soldiers in jeopardy……The majority of Americans are going to be VERY ANGRY over this one, comrades……

    • Tom Winegar

      I think you are right, those that wondered about Obama’s loyalties now have a place to hang their hat. It pleases me greatly to see that everything the DemoCommies say and do just digs their hole a little deeper but releasing those animals kicks sand in the face of those that have and are serving in our armed forces to jail them. Obama is the worst traitor America has ever seen which just stinks up Obama’s already smelly legacy. He is worse than the ones that committed treason to help the Soviet Union and even worse than those that committed treason for money. Obama is the poster boy for worthless and now the word feces is what describes him.

No reality is too big for them to ignore and no lie is too gigantic or insane for them to swallow and repeat, repeat, repeat….anger at Obama will do US no good, it’s way too little and WAY WAY too late – he is leaving anyway, they will still elect HRC or equivalent evil socialist dreamer

  • StoptheInsanity

    I couldn’t even begin to image the pain he and his family have felt knowing their son was being held captive. Top that will the pain that the families feel whose loved ones were killed looking for his AWOL son. And, the tens of thousands of lost souls who lives have been ended at the hands of murderous jihadists.

    • http://FUCKLIBERALS.COM/ SOUTH BEANTOWN HOOLIGAN

      He knows where is son was at from jump street!

      • StoptheInsanity

        Interesting. I wouldn’t doubt. it I find it the details of what happened really strange. The Associated Press reported that On July 2, 2009 two U.S. officials told the them that a soldier (Bergdahl) had “just walked off” his base with three Afghans after his shift. What’s even more odd, is the majority of captives held by Taliban are tortured and beheaded, all of which is videotaped. I ask myself, why was Bergdahl spared? Obama using his executive privilege to negotiate with the Taliban, without congressional approval is also troubling. I am not willing to agree with the reasoning “that the mission couldn’t be compromised while waiting for congress.” Congress was able to meet concerning capturing Osama Bin Laden, so why not advise on rescuing a captured soldier? How is it that five, high ranking terrorist are released in exchange for one soldier?

      except that DADDY overlooks who exactly kept his son a “prisoner” unless of course he was NOT one and deserted as volunteer to ABET the ENEMY.

      Think about it- if your son was held captive you would INSULT demean and bash the country who SAVED his butt and cheer and rave about how wonderful the men who kept him captive are?? and not say ONE WORD of thanks or respect to the families of those who died for him and our nation?

    You know Americans have gone crazy when they claim a beard makes you un-American and a jihadist. Hmm..? Then I suppose it is safe to assume you hate Jews too! Yep, Americas version of the Taliban in full swing here. Can you really think it’s okay to force people who’s religion and people have been around longer then America and Americans to your way of life and thinking? I bet the people over think you all are crazier then them and love that you all are doing what they expected, dividing us.You all are easy sheep. Just because a soldier decided he no longer believed in what America was doing over there, beyond the actual hunt for Bin Laden, doesn’t make him any less of an American. And until it is proven he left of his own free will (funny it wasn’t until the emails that his fellow soldiers called him deserter and not before). I know many who didn’t believe in the Vietnam War but are they any less American? No, some people are peaceful and not war mongers, Umm.. I know another peaceful man who wouldn’t defend any of this bullshit on here… JESUS! Oh yeah I forgot you folks practice dissonance!

    This got me thinking that POWs are never released before a war is over and all the treaty stuff is signed. These guys at GITMO are POWs in the Global War on Terror. So far as I’ve heard, none of the major aggressors are saying anything about peace, only “Destroy Jews and Christians” and “Destroy Israel and America.” So yeah, they’re still locked up. How come if they were so hot to sacrifice for their cause, they’re so whiney about being caged up with 3 hots, a cot, a soccer field of their own and ice cream on Fridays? Would they be happier if we treated them badly? Now there’s a thought. ::snort:: jk

  • Alan Tuttle

    Here’s what I’m a afraid of…. More Americans going to Afghanistan, getting “kidnapped” by the Taliban, and basically using themselves as bargaining chips to get prisoners out of Gitmo.

      • Hugh Jass

        I think he converted to islam at the bequest of his son’s captors. Since the gov’t wasn’t doing anything to get his son out, he took it upon himself to do something. He’s obviously been in contact with them. I’ve been to Haily ID, not many muslims live there. Perhaps Stockholm syndrome is the wrong word.

    • teddy martin

      Stockholm syndrome is the effect of slowly agreeing with your captors after a lengthy time in captivity. The father has converted to Taliban thinking without capture and the son was pro-Taliban before his desertion and “capture” by the Taliban.

    Bob is a devout muslim. His son is a muslim POS that deserted his fellow Americans. Six brave Americans were murdered trying to find Bob’s traitorous son. Obama, a muslim, violated the law, AGAIN, by circumventing congress, AGAIN, to broker this illegal exchange. We the people have been the victims of another propaganda lie administered by this White House with the aid of the lap dog main stream media. What we have here is another bald faced lie and despicable bait-n-switch scheme by Obama and his communist administration.

    The reality of this lawless act is Obama has committed treason by releasing five highly dangerous radical muslim terrorists that will undoubtedly immerse themselves back into conducting attacks against Americans. He and his lying and deceptive administration along with the MSM are positioning Bergdahl as a POW when there is overwhelming evidence proving Bergdahl to be a muslim traitor.

  • Maggie

    Questions for Daddy Bergdahl: Exactly where were those five Tunisians being held for 10 yrs at Gitmo picked up (I’d wager it wasn’t Tunisia), and what were they holding/carrying/doing at the time of their capture? And are they some of those Gitmo detainees that have, over the last decade, been offered back to their own countries but their government didn’t want them back? But keep up the good work, sir. You’re making our case…

    Obama traded wanted war criminals for Bergdahl.

Turabi was also reportedly behind the decision in 2001 to blow up Afghanistan’s ancient Bamiyan Buddha statues, an incident that caused international outcry. Noori has been wanted by the United Nations (UN) for possible war crimes including the murder of thousands of Shiite Muslims.

    Quick question.

    How can people be responding on June 1 to a tweet sent out on June 2? If we’re to take the screenshot seriously, it was taken 5 minutes after Bergdahl’s tweet. Yet it was tweeted on the second..or the first…depending on which screenshot you’re looking at. I’m sure there’s a reasonable explanation.
