Taliban Once Claimed Bergdahl Trained Members Of The Taliban
Posted By Hannah Bleau On 5:56 PM 06/03/2014

The Taliban once claimed that recently released U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was teaching terrorists how to build bombs.

In 2010, a Taliban commander, Haji Nadeem, told The Daily Mail that Bergdahl spent time training members of the Taliban, showing them how to make bombs and conduct surprise attacks.

The commander also said some of his men were deeply skeptical of Bergdahl’s cooperation and motives. “Most of the skills he taught us we already knew,” Nadeem told The Daily Mail. “Some of my comrades think he’s pretending to be a Muslim to save himself so they wouldn’t behead him.”

Along with allegedly converting to Islam, Bergdahl was given the Muslim name “Abdullah.”

“This war isn’t worth the waste of human life that has cost both Afghanistan and the U.S. It’s not worth the amount of lives that have been wasted in prisons, Guantanamo Bay, Bagram, all those places where we are keeping prisoners,” Bergdahl said in a hostage video released in April.

Fox News reported Tuesday (but U.S. military officials have not yet confirmed) that Bergdahl left a letter before he was captured, saying he wanted to renounce his American citizenship.

Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip........

The levels of incompetence on display here is stunning.  None of this information has been a secret.  In fact, this Administration has had these facts explained to them in detail as to why it was both a bad idea to free the Taliban's Dream Team, why it was a bad idea to swap them for Bergdahl, and has had a thorough Pentagon investigative report in their hands since 2010 detailing everything the Army knows about the circumstances of Bergdahl's disappearance.

They knew all of this, and disregarded all of it for the sake of making political points.  We find out this Administration has been in extended secret talks with the Taliban about this while the President makes speeches at West Point to cover for meeting the Emir of Qatar; using a trip to Afghanistan to supposedly visit the troops to conduct negotiations about this.....

This was Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes that hatched this plot, and they over-rode the judgement of everyone in the government and bullied this exchange through against all advise not to.  They have no clue how deeply insulting this entire affair is to every single person who ever wore the Uniform.  And now we hear the badmouthing of Veterans who were there has begun.

The insult is quite intentional.
