Bowe Bergdahl had sworn to serve the country faithfully and was serving in Afghanistan in America’s continuing war with terrorism. However, 5 years ago, Bergdahl decided America’s presence in Afghanistan was not justified, its war on terrorism was not worth it and left his base voluntarily to go to the enemy camp! Since his voluntary walk-out, Bergdahl had been held in captivity, in Afghanistan, by the Taliban, the hardcore Islamic group committed to jihad against America. The Bergdahl fiasco represents a continuing saga of Obama’s minimal understanding of friends and enemies, minuscule grasp of continuing terrorist threat, complete disregard of America’s security and more than this, Obama acting as king rather than President of a democratic nation.
Obama as president, cannot make laws; his job is to implement them. Obama bypassed Congress by making the Bergdahl deal with Taliban, by himself and released 5 very dangerous Taliban terrorists from Gitmo! This was technically not a prisoner swap because American troops are still in Afghanistan and hostilities between America and its enemies haven’t yet ended. Bergdahl was brought home by Obama administration in exchange for 5 Gitmo prisoners aka terrorists fully committed to the destruction of America and rest of the free world (or non-Muslim world) till Islam is established in all lands. In a much hyped celebration of Bergdahl’s coming back home, the White House made a fool of itself as more and more reports revealed that Bergdahl was no hero but an army deserter and enemy collaborator.
Whether Bergdahl collaborated with the Taliban on his own or under duress, will be revealed as Bergdahl is debriefed in Germany. State Department made a fool of itself, yet again, as it was caught off guard by its ineptitude and arrogance when it dismissed Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers’ words; essentially State Department stopped short of calling America’s soldiers liars when they revealed details of Bergdahl’s behavior and that there was nothing honorable about him and Bergdahl left and went actively looking for the enemy, the Taliban. Susan Rice, Obama’s right hand woman-in-lying, added to the debacle just like she did for Obama’s previous scandal of Benghazi. The nation watches in horror as its President continues to fumble, take shelter in his race, silence any dissent and deliberately works to put the country at risk.
Bergdahl fiasco may have pushed the VA scandal off the screen, but the truth is that the White House and Obama engaged in a stupid stunt that is beginning to seem more and more bizarre. Obama bypassed Congress by not seeking the 30 day statute; Obama ignored the sovereign country of Afghanistan and made a deal with its ‘enemy’ the Taliban; Obama released 5 extremely dangerous terrorists and ignored very legitimate threat to America’s security; misinformed the nation about Bergdahl deal by effectively calling Bergdahl a hero and not a deserter; dissing soldiers who were killed searching for Bergdahl, a man who left his fellow soldiers, his country and commitment, to join the enemy camp, voluntarily! There is nothing honorable about Obama’s actions or his poor leadership or his pathetic understanding of war or the commitment of America’s young men and women to defend it with their lives.
