As Twitchy has reported, President Obama ordered the release of five Gitmo detainees to secure the return of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from his Taliban captors in Afghanistan.
Recently, a tweet was published from the account of Bowe Bergdahl’s father, Robert, which stated a desire to see all Gitmo detainees released:

Here’s the tweet from Bob Bergdahl’s account, which was published May 28 and deleted Saturday night (at the time of publication the deletion of the tweet has not been acknowledged on the account):
The tweet had time to generate plenty of controversy before it disappeared:

Wow. This is the father who appeared alongside Obama today. RT @bobbergdahl: I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners.

So, it seems Bergdahl's father is sympathetic toward the Taliban at Gitmo. That's fucking fantastic.

@tracieeeeee I want to know why the soldiers father is so adamant about the release of all the Gitmo detainees.

@tracieeeeee I agree -the father wants ALL Gitmo terrorists released – I don't like this

@RichardGrenell I am sick to my stomach! God save us from our leaders.

Many obviously didn’t think that tweet was a good idea, and apparently neither did the @BobBergdahl account, or perhaps an outside adviser.
