BOMBSHELL!! Bergdahl declared Jihad Against US in 2010
by Steven Ahle on June 5, 2014
Bowe Bergdahl, Obama’s favorite traitor for whom he had the sacred duty of releasing, declared Jihad on the United States in 2010. (No big deal. Obama declared Jihad on our economy in 2009) Documents show that Bergdahl converted to Islam and declared himself a “mujahid,” or warrior for Islam, according to documents obtained by James Rosen, Fox News reporter.
The documents showed that Bergdahl’s relationship with his captors ran hot and cold. At times he would be allowed to carry a rifle. He once deserted his captors and they brought him back and locked him in a steel cage as opposed to the Obama plan to trade 5 extremely dangerous terrorists to bring home a traitor and try to make him a hero. I’m thinking the Taliban got this one right.
The negotiations for Bergdahl’s release began in 2009. The reports are very specific on the details, including the names of the Haqqani commanders, who commanded the 200 man revolving detail, holding Bergdahl, and his location and what his life would be like.
The documents were supplied by Duane R. (“Dewey”) Clarridge, a shadowy former agent of the CIA, best known for his part in the Iran Contra scandal. The first George Bush pardoned him before he went on trial in December of 1992. A New York Times article from 2011 disclosed that an intelligence gathering company named Eclipse , who through subcontractors worked on various projects, including locating Bowe Bergdahl.
Rosen reported in his column today that:
Clarridge told Fox News his group enjoyed a subcontract from U.S. Central Command, or CENTCOM,(Central Command) headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida, from November 2009 through May 31, 2010, and that after the contract was terminated, he invested some $50,000 of his own money to maintain the network of informants that had yielded such detailed accounts of Bergdahl’s status.
Clarridge further told Fox News that by the end of 2010, he had furnished at least 13 of these detailed SITREPs, or situation reports, that his network generated about Bergdahl to Brigadier General Robert P. Ashley Jr., who in April 2010 was named director of intelligence, at the J-2 level, at CENTCOM. Clarridge said Eclipse SITREP # 3023, dated Aug. 23, 2012 — in which a member of the Haqqani network, said to be close to Bergdahl’s captors, reported that the American prisoner had declared himself a “mujahid” — was among the reports provided to Ashley.
The latter is now commanding general at the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence and Fort Huachuca, where a message left with the public affairs office was not immediately returned.
The documents show that Eclipse followed Bergdahl from just months after he disappeared in 2009 until August of 2012. At one point during 2010, Bergdahl escaped and was gone 5 days, When he was returned, he was placed in an iron cage. But at other times, he would be playing soccer with the Taliban guards and he even got to carry a gun around at times. Rosen goes on to document what happened to the reports that Eclipse wrote and who saw them:
Reached by telephone, retired U.S. Marine Corps General James N. Mattis, a 45-year service veteran who served as CENTCOM commander from August 2010 to August 2012, told Fox News he may have received bits and pieces of the intelligence generated by Eclipse, but said Ashley, with whom he maintained a close working relationship, had not forwarded on to him the specific SITREPs cited by Fox News.
Mattis was also adamant that no one at CENTCOM or within the broader U.S. military or intelligence community — despite intensive investigation of such allegations — ever learned of anything to suggest Bergdahl had evolved into an active collaborator with the Haqqani network or the Taliban. “We were always looking for actionable intelligence,” Mattis said. “It wasn’t just the IC [intelligence community]. We had tactical units that were involved in the fight. We had SIGINT. Any collaborators who were on the other side and who came over to our side. We kept an eye on this. … There was never any evidence of collaboration.”
Fox News reported on Monday that Bergdahl was the subject of a “major classified file” prepared by the U.S. intelligence community, and that many members of that community harbored concerns that Bergdahl, during his period of captivity, may have engaged in collaboration with the enemy.
Experts consulted by Fox News said that SITREP # 3023 presents a picture of an American captive who, if not an active collaborator, may have succumbed to Stockholm Syndrome — the dynamic by which hostages can become enamored of their captors and join their cause — or simply feigned allegiance in order to survive. The report cited a source new to Eclipse — a member of the Haqqani network said to be close to Mullah Sangeen, the Haqqani commander charged at all points over the last five years with operational custody and control of Bergdahl — whose trustworthiness had not been fully vetted by the group. However, the report stated, the informant “does have plausible access to the information reported below, and claims to have seen Bergdahl personally in Shawal,” in North Waziristan.
“In the early stages Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s captivity,” the report states, “he was held at Palasin, Naurak, FATA [Federally Administered Tribal Areas], under the control of Mullah Sangeen and under the direct supervision of Haji Mursaleem, Sangeen’s father. Conditions and locality changed after Mursaleem died [in September 2010], and Bergdahl was kept under tight guard after his attempted escape from his new place of detention in Shawal.
“As of August 2012,” the report continues, “the person with responsibility for Bergdahl’s captivity is Sangeen’s brother, who has delegated the actual guarding of Bergdahl to Abubakr Asadkhel, a Burra Khel Wazir loyal to Sangeen, and whose sub-tribe lives in Shawal. Abubakr leads approximately 200 armed men from his tribe and operates from five bases (markaz) in Shawal. … Abubakr’s tribe is one of the prosperous branches of the Wazir and owns lots of trucks. Abubakr circulates his prisoner between schools in the area he controls, and his different insurgent bases.”
Conditions for Bergdahl have greatly relaxed since the time of the escape. Bergdahl has converted to Islam and now describes himself as a mujahid. Bergdahl enjoys a modicum of freedom, and engages in target practice with the local mujahedeen, firing AK47s. Bergdahl is even allowed to carry a loaded gun on occasion. Bergdahl plays soccer with his guards and bounds around the pitch like a mad man. He appears to be well and happy, and has a noticeable habit of laughing frequently and saying ‘Salaam’ repeatedly.
Rosen is still working on the investigation and more will be made available as it comes in and is verified.
