Bergdahl investigation is finished but don’t count on getting the truth

The truth is finally coming out about the investigation of Army SGT Bowe Bergdahl but as usual, truth is something progressive socialists shun. Not that there was a need for another investigation — all they had to do was open up the classified investigative report at the Pentagon completed back in 2010.

However, as reported by Reuters, this new investigation “into the circumstances surrounding the capture of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl by Taliban militants in Afghanistan has been completed, but it is unclear when the military will finish its report, the Pentagon said on Tuesday. Pentagon spokesman Army Colonel Steve Warren said Major General Kenneth Dahl had submitted his initial report to the military chain of command for review. Warren said there was no way of telling when the review process would be completed. The Pentagon appointed Dahl to investigate the case, determine if Bergdahl had broken military rules and recommend punishment if appropriate. “The investigating officer has done his work but now that work is moving through the Army system, and at each stop … there will … be questions, requirements for clarification,” Warren told reporters. “So it’s working its way through the system as would any other investigation.”

So why wouldn’t the “most transparent administration in history” want to release the investigation findings and put the matter behind it? Well, that’s obvious. Bowe Bergdahl deserted his assigned place of duty in a combat zone and was apprehended by the enemy — not captured. That is the fact, which we all know, but the Obama administration can’t afford to have this “inconvenient truth” revealed three weeks before the midterm elections — thereby opening up a new can of worms for Democrats to respond to in these final crucial weeks.

How damaging would it be for the American public to know that Obama unilaterally and unconstitutionally released five senior members of the Taliban at a time when the enemy is still fighting our troops?

And just as a reminder, according to the Constitution — Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 — the Congress is granted the enumerated power to make laws and rules in matters concerning those captured on land or water — NOT the president. Even the Government Accountability Office, a government watchdog agency, said in August that the Defense Department – of Obama administration — had violated U.S. law by failing to alert Congress before releasing five Taliban members held at Guantanamo Bay military prison in exchange for Bergdahl.

What I found hilarious was the Left tried to accuse me of being some “flip flopper” on securing Bergdahl’s repatriation. I have no issue with his return, but he MUST be prosecuted for deserting his post and even worse, forcing other Soldiers to conduct search and recovery operations resulting in the death of several. We should never negotiate with terrorists — and that’s what the Taliban are. And can someone explain why Obama isn’t doing anything to secure the release of Marine SGT Andrew Tahmooressi?

Bergdahl’s desertion isn’t debatable but the concern has to be whether this investigation report findings will be delayed due to political purposes — or completely dismissed. And if dismissed, it means a deserter would receive thousands of dollars of “back pay” and benefits of which his is not deserving.

The Bergdahl incident is just another embarrassing case for Obama. And let us not forget the insidious comments of Susan Rice on a Sunday talk show – why do they keep wheeling her out? — who stated Bergdahl had served with honor and distinction!

As stated, the progressive socialist Left sees Bergdahl as a hero and that was why his parents received a White House Rose Garden ceremony. And who was so incompetent that Obama wasn’t advised it would be best to keep this silent due to the mystery surrounding Bergdahl’s “disappearance?”

Obama said this was an immediate issue of Bergdahl’s health — well, thanks to the Taliban, we were all able to see just how healthy Bergdahl was as he walked to the helicopter. We also saw how vulnerable the pick up site was to our special operations forces.

This is a bad situation for Obama all ‘round and it would be best to just come clean. But hey, it’s better this way because Obama continually provides plenty of thought-provoking material as a result of his inept progressive agenda and constant blunders. Even far left writer Eugene Robinson is declaring Obama suffers from self-inflicted delusion.

So, let us all come to these sane conclusions. ISIS is on the offense, isn’t being degraded and is so far winning. Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter and Obama is doing everything to delay or hide the truth. Marine SGT Andrew Tahmooressi has been abandoned by Obama. And five senior members of the Taliban are free and will return to Afghanistan just months from now in 2015 while we will still have American troops in harm’s way.

All this kinda reminds me of the disturbingly sarcastic song by Devo, “Beautiful World.”

The truth has already been told. The guy walked into the arms of the enemy and took up with them. No doubt. Then M.E. Apology Tour Barry Hussein, who has a soft spot in his heart for the Muslim prayer and can’t wait to empty GITMO, decides to replenish the leadership of the Taliban in exchange for a known traitor. Nuff said.

He may have served with “honor and distinction (Susan Rice)” but he was serving the wrong side. Then again, so does our president….so I guess it’s no surprise he’s touted as a hero by the libtards.

Uhhh huh…so, what is the truth Earl? Which part of this is not truth? Did he or did he not 1) walk away from his post?, 2) collaborate with the enemy, 3) fire live weapons with the enemy and joke with them?, 4) Was he not traded for dangerous anti-American people who want to destroy America? I would really like to know the truth, which of this article is true and which is not true Earl?

Amen, I wouldn’t be surprised if earl is operating in the white house basement and being paid with our tax dollars. Of course he could be out of work with obama’s job killing and bored, hence his many delirious comments which almost qualifies him for a cabinet level position with BHO.

The truth is simple Obama is a traitor and Bowe is a deserter both are treason.

There must be a way to take Husseins power away from him, maybe in a few more weeks? I just can’t believe everywhere you look in Hussein’s dictatorship you see worthless, lying, ignorant, socialist, communist people. Binden, Jarrett, Rice, Reed, Holder, Pelosi, Kerry, the directors of IRS, CIA, FBI, DHS, DOD, EPA you name it. If “we the people” are lucky enough to ever have another fairly and honestly elected president that’s worth his/her salt they will have one hell of a job replacing all these evil socialist communist folks with honest people. We’ll probably never prove anything against this… Read more »

As a wounded veteran I am watching this very close. Having contacts with some of this clowns past unit members, I know the deal you probably aren’t going to hear in the MSM. Most of us are fighting for some of the most basic of benefits from the VA. If this clown ends up with a ton of back pay, benefits, and God forbid a POW medal….I am going to go postal

One more thing that bugs me is that they promoted him to E5. That means someone else DIDN’T get promoted, and this sack of garbage is taking up an E5 slot that someone else deserves.

My last pay <-check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My neighbour's sister has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out.

Why do you insist on convicting Bergdahl. Shouldn’t we wait to see what am investigation finds? Aren’t we all supposed to be allowed due process. You have convicted this man from afar. I prefer to wait. If he is to be tried let that move forward and if convicted then he will deserve all that he gets. If not then he deserves that as well. His alleged desertion is in fact debatable, as there were no witnesses. Marine SGT Andrew Tahmooressi? Ex Marine that drove into Tijuana with weapons in the back of his pick up in violation of the… Read more »

Mr west ASSumes that the military investigators will lie.
Why?
Because military investigators nearly sent him to prison and he has a grudge.

Allen you and I know why this is happening. But what gets me the most the American public knows this is all a sham. Bergdahl is nothing but a coward and a traitor who was the cause of real Americans being killed searching for him. He should be stood against a wall and shot.
As for Marine SGT Andrew Tahmooressi Obama especially hates Marines that’s why he’s not rendering any aid to him.

It is anyone’s guess as to whether or not obama knows the words to that song being sung in the video but there is no guessing when it comes to obama’s hate for America.

Liar. || And just as a reminder, according to the Constitution — Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 — the Congress is granted the enumerated power to make laws and rules in matters concerning those captured on land or water|| The captures clause applies only to property, not to people. Here’s what the liberal Heritage Foundation (/sarcasm) says on the issue: “Under the Captures Clause, Congress has the power to make rules for the confiscation, disposition, and distribution of captured enemy property. “the term captures, as understood by the Framers of the Constitution, includes only enemy property.

RedStateJoe,

Omission is also lying. You purposely omitted this part of the declaration…”Under the Captures Clause, Congress has the power to make rules for the confiscation, disposition, and distribution of captured enemy property. Although nothing in the text of the clause precludes its application to captures of enemy persons, it has never been so applied by either courts or Congress.”
Get it? Nothing precludes it’s application to captured persons.
You have just demonstrated to me Mr. West’s exact point, and I will not take any of your posts serious.

RedStateJoe
Guest

Seriously, did you read the article – the Heritage Foundation thinks West’s position is crap, that his analysis is crap. READ THE ARTICLE – that’s why I gave you the link.

RedStateJoe
Guest

Uhm, that confirms my position, not hurts it.

Nothing precludes means the language does not explicitly state “not people.” Here’s what does precludes it: 230 years of jurisprudence that it does not include people and, of course, the common language used at the time the document was written.

That’s called original intent. If West is opposed to that, then let him state that once and for all.

No Court. No Congress in 230 years has adopted the radical view you and West put forward.
