Great fanfare was made about the recent release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who has been held by the Taliban for several years, in conjunction with the release of what The Weekly Standard is describing as "five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders."
You'll forgive me if I don't share the joy expressed by many at Sgt. Bergdahl's release. I consider Sgt. Bergdahl a traitor. Harsh words? Perhaps, but allow the record to speak for itself.
I was contacted earlier this morning by a dear brother-in-Christ who's son is an Army First Lieutenant. Read carefully his son's words:
"Don't believe any fanciful garbage you read about this deserter we just got from the Taliban. He was an enemy sympathizer that abandoned his men and his post and sought to join the Taliban. We just gave up 5 of the Taliban's top guys so that we could get a traitor back. I was over there when he deserted and we stopped everything in order to find him. The entire country went on lockdown and countless assets were sent to find him. I know that several good men died trying to get him back. He told the Taliban everything they wanted, and then helped shoot their propaganda videos. This guy deserves a court martial. He's a disgrace to the uniform."
I confess that this was news to me, well because the mainstream media would never allow such news that would tarnish their King Obama's lackluster foreign policy and diplomacy record. It's all about the optics (I'll address that in a bit).
After posting to my Facebook page that I had some explosive information on the prisoner exchange, I was sent this link from another soldier testifying that Sgt. Bergdahl is a deserter. While you will not find this information in the US media, the UK Mail Online is reporting that this make-believe hero could indeed be tried for desertion.
If all of this was not enough to raise the hackles on the back of your neck, then get a load of what Debbie Schlussel is reporting:
DISGUSTING: Bowe Bergdahl’s Dad Praises allah, Makes Islamic Declaration, Calls For Release of All Gitmo Terrorists; Did Bergdahl Convert to Islam?
Always remember that Obama is a master of distraction. One of his mentors is Saul Alinsky who wrote this in his book, "Rules for Radicals":
The eighth rule: Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.
Barack Obama is keeping the pressure on while removing it from him. With the VA, IRS, and releasing of tens of thousands of illegal aliens scandals, the fanfare around Sgt. Bergdahl's releases is a different tactic and action for the purpose of distracting the media from his ineptitude.
