On the O’Reilly Factor, Monday night, Fox News contributor Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer divulged disturbing new information about Bowe Bergdahl’s activities in Afghanistan that led to his disappearance and explains why he was charged with “misbehavior toward the enemy.”
According to Shaffer, the 2009 NCIS investigation into Bergdahl’s activities, revealed that there is clear evidence that Bergdahl was “going over to the other side with a deliberate plan.”
Shaffer said two senior sources who were part of the investigation, told him that a forensic review of his computer showed that Bergdahl intended to travel to Uzbekistan.
“He was going to go off to Uzbekistan,” Shaffer told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. “He had made contact with local Afghans and wanted to be moved to Uzbekistan and then made contact with the Russians because he wanted to talk to Russian organized crime…”
Shaffer continued, “clearly he was not all there relating to what he was doing. I think we’re going to see more and more, as this report is made public that there were a number of disconcerting things within Bergdahl.”
According to the sources, data collection at the time indicated Bergdahl made contact with an Afghan in an effort to lay the ground work for his departure.“He had Afghan contacts and he was actually trying to offer himself up with the Taliban. Both are very severe,” Shaffer added.
Shaffer said that the NCIS investigation, which included interviews with squad mates as well as Afghans working outside the wire, reportedly resulted in Bergdahl being charged with misbehavior toward the enemy.
So – not to belabor the point – – – 5 Taliban Commanders for this “not all there” traitor who actively sought warm relations with the enemy and turned his back on his friends.
No wonder the Obama Regime said he served “with honor and distinction.”
What is the Obama Doctrine, after all?: Warm relations with adversaries and cool them with friends.
Daniel Pipes reviews the wreckage of Barack Obama’s foreign policies:
Count the mistakes: Helping overthrow Muammar Qaddafi in Libya, leading to anarchy and civil war. Pressuring Husni Mubarak of Egypt to resign, then backing the Muslim Brotherhood, leading now-president Sisi to turn toward Moscow. Alienating Washington’s most stalwart ally in the region, the Government of Israel. Dismissing ISIS as “junior varsity” just before it seized major cities. Hailing Yemen as a counterterrorism success just before its government was overthrown. Alarming the Saudi authorities to the point that they put together a military alliance against Iran. Coddling Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey, encouraging his dictatorial tendencies. Leaving Iraq and Afghanistan prematurely, dooming the vast American investment in those two countries.
And, most of all: Making dangerously flawed deals with the nuclear-ambitious mullahs of Iran.
As always, the question is: is Obama failing, or succeeding? As Glenn Reynolds keeps pointing out, that depends on what he is trying to achieve.
