Bowe Bergdahl Promoted to Sgt in Absentia? Father Wants All Gitmos Released “Ameen!”

Bob Bergdahl, Bowe Bergdahl’s father Tweeted that he is working to free all Gitmo prisoners. He said that God will repay for the death of every Afghan child. In another tweet dated May 28, 2014, Bob tweets in Arabic and in English, saying “@ABalkhi my son speaks about unjust death of Afghan children;” I can’t embed it, but here are screen grabs.

Bowe Bergdahl was not captured in battle. He reportedly walked off the base after his shift. He did not take his weapons. He was held for five years before the Navy SEALS rescued him in exchange for five hard-cord Islamists held in Gitmo.

“Ameen” is about the same as “Amen,” or ‘believe my prayer of supplication’ from what I find on the InterTubes.

When Obama announced Bowe Bergdahl’s release today, the parents were with him. Bob Bergdahl spoke in Arabic, saying first that his son had not heard English for 5 years and was having a difficult time “speaking.” In Arabic, he said something like “Bowe, this is your father.” I believe he also said something to Afghanis. In the rescue helicopter, it was reported that it was very noisy. Bowe wrote “SF?” on a paper plate, asking if his rescuers were “Special Forces.” They spoke to him in English confirming and said “we’ve been looking for you for a long time,” or something close to that. Bergdahl understood it and began to cry. Really, would we lose our English as an adult after five years not hearing it, or hearing it very little? I don’t think so.

CNN and other sources are referring to Bowe Bergdahl as “Sgt.” Wikipedia says he was promoted in absentia. He entered the Army in the Fall of 2008.

    There is lots of ‘splain to do on this guy. Right from the start. There will be a price to pay in the long term with this prisoner swap.

    Speaking of……..was illegal. It required that Congress be notified of it 30 days in advance. Yet another law dismissed out of hand by the most lawless administration in our history.

    Can we now commence with Impeachment?

    • Geo, something very dark here. Bob Bergdahl quotes his son on the 28th, before his release. Made me wonder if he had been hacked, but then something isn’t right about the Dad.

      I give you permission to commence with impeachment and I second that emotion.

        I heard today that they were trying to do this before and Panetta stopped it. I agree Maggie there is something very strange about the father. He looks to me a “pre release from Gitmo”. He was even tweeting in Arabic I saw.
        He doesnt seem like the scholar type to me and said that the U.S. was going to pay for what they did in Afghanistan.

    There’s something very, very fishy going on here……..

    Can our next president PLEASE just love our country??????

      The next one will spell the end of our country. Sorry to be pessimistic , but they are setting the economy up for total collapse . They will blame Capitalism because you know it happened under Bush and Obama and unknowing masses will accept a collectivist society. Capitalism isn’t to blame for the ills in our economy , Obama is. The collapse I guess you could say will be his Reichstag moment.

    “A few months ago I told the American people I did not trade arms
    for hostages. My heart and my best intentions still tell me that’s true,
    but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. As the Tower board
    reported, what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated, in its
    implementation, into trading arms for hostages.”

    It appears the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. The Bergdahls are anti-American Taliban sympathizers.

      I didn’t see him sympathizing with the Taliban. I saw him sympathizing with the Afghan citizens and children who for the past 12 years have known nothing but war. Imagine if your child grew up for 12 years in a place that was at constant war.

      Do you not know that NOT all Afghanis are Taliban. You do know that we’re working WITH these same Afghanis, training them and supporting them. So if the father has some pity about an Afghan child – then perhaps he’s just a compassionate person.

      As far as hitting and killing an Afghan child with an armored vehicle – I can validate that this happened on at least one occasion that I am able to verify. It was tragic, but it did happen.

    I think Obama is using this to win back the base for Hillary over the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi. Of course , she’s not lost the whole base but I’m sure there are a lot of mad Democrats.Obama emphasized how America never leaves one of our behind. Funny considering Benghazi. I found it very , very odd that his father spoke in Arabic language on TV and now he wants Gitmo savages out ? WTH , if my son were being held for five years , I sure wouldn’t want the gate opened , would you ?

    Things cannot be more obvious; The Muslim mole usurper in USA’s highest office finds ways every day to promote his muslimizing (i.e. depraved) agenda. See his big smile when that muslim dad says allah – oh, the good sigh obama gave – oh, he was made so happy.

    If this creep isn’t impeached, and he won’t because there have been ample opportunities to do that, kiss America goodbye. This administration is into destroying America big time and all indications are he’s succeeding in a big way – with stupid Americans there to help him with his conniving, sinister plots.
