Gen Jim Mattis (USMC, ret) was CENTCOM CinC while BoweB was in Pakis. He says he saw no info that BoweB was a collaborator. That's good enough for me. The WH/NYT meme that Boweb deliberately walked off because of his bullying platoonmates is an admission that he deserted IMO. However, Mattis's public statement to me means that the IED precision after his desertion was just grunt talk, not evidence of collaboration.
The Army 'investigation' will be interesting. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/06/05/fox-news-bergdahl-converted-to-islam-declared-jihad-in-2010/

“Many people say they belong to the church,” but in reality have “only one foot inside,” the pope said June 5 at the morning Mass in the chapel of his residence.

“For these people, the church is not home,” but is a place they use as a rental property, he said, according to Vatican Radio.

Obamanomics: these 2 charts graphically show the effect of Obamanomics. It required 5+ years to recover the jobs lost in the 18month panic of the Housing Bubble Pop/credit collapse of 2007-2008. Meanwhile 12 MILLION have left the Labor Force. NOTE: the kinks in the mid-2009 period in both charts. That is where Obamacare was released as a 'plan'. Businesses looked at that and immediately stopped hiring. And when the began rehiring more than 6 months later ist was at the pitiful rate we have seen the last 5 years. These charts are graphic proof of the poison that is Obamanomics: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-06-06/us-finally-recovers-all-jobs-lost-2007-while-people-not-labor-force-increase-128-mil

NK,

Some credit must be given to the Muddle for noticing the reversion below mean in the intelligence of the oligarchy both here and in EUtopia. The world's credentialed moronacracy just isn't up to dealing with the OPM Famine.

Desertion seems the minimum. I would grant that Stockholm Syndrome is at least a possibility. They felt comfortable enough with the guy to put an AK 47 in his hands. Given his Father's weird behavior, I would not count on him losing his jihadi fervor once reacclimated either. We may have traded 5 jihadis for one. Great job, brownie.

"Desertion is not a solitary crime. It is a crime against the tens of thousands of veterans who are huddled together in the harsh cold of this winter. Against all those who have sacrificed. Against all those who have fallen. Against all the women and the children we have left alone to fend for themselves. I regard the crime of desertion as a sin against the army. Duty is ours, the consequences are God's."

In the WaPo transcript link, the first question to him was:

Thank you, Mr. President. Have you been surprised by the backlash that's been whipped up by your decision to do a deal to free Bowe Bergdahl? And what do you think is motivating that?

For Henry via Charlie Sykes:

We are still 5 months from the November election, but liberals are conceding that 2014 will be another good year for Republicans in Wisconsin. Facing a 60-39 Republican Assembly Majority, Democrats need to win a lot of races to take back the State Assembly. Yet Democrats failed to recruit candidates to file in many key races, including in 10 Republican held seats where President Obama got 45% or more of the vote in 2012. The Democrats' actions, or lack thereof, speak volumes about the type of year Democrats expect

Apparently no mid term victory expected in Wisconsin. I guess that is because it such a died in wool Red state though, right? Right Double Douchebag?

From WaPo Berghadl timeline:

June 30, 2009: The Taliban captures Bergdahl after he leaves his post.

July 18, 2009: The Taliban releases a video of Bergdahl. The captured soldier says in the video: "Please, please bring us home so that we can be back where we belong and not over here, wasting our time and our lives and our precious life that we could be using back in our own country."

Something tells me BB was a willing propaganda tool from the beginning of his captivity. So the WH is suggesting his departure was due to bullying by his fellow soldiers? I bet that's the excuse his parents would give for homeschooling him, badly it seems as he didn't even get a GED until his 20s. BB has probably been a very odd, friendless fellow all his life, and now taxpayers will support him via disability payments the rest of it.

GMax, the Senate and Assembly are safe R. The progs will focus on House seats esp Ryan (they even got "Segway boy" to primary Ryan as an R on the theory that since his last name is also Ryan, we hayseeds will get confused and vote for the wrong one) and of course Walker. The gov race will be close, depending on turnout vs vote manufacturing as usual, but Walker should win.

You know, if I had three wishes that I could make this holiday season, first, of course, would be for all the children to get together and sing.. the second would be for the $30 million every month to me.. and the third would be for all encompassing power over every living being thing in the entire universe.

And if I had four wishes that I could make this holiday season, first would be the crap about the kids.. second would be for the $30 million.. the third would be for all the power.. and the fourth would be to set aside one month each year for an extended 31-day orgasm, to be brought about slowly by Rosanna Arquette and that model Paulina somebody, I can't think of her name, of course my lovely wife could come, too.

Obummer is really dumb and politically retarded (sorry Tomm just 'is). He thought the BoweB deal would not only start Operation Empty Gitmo, he thought it would be a popularity coup to get the VA stuff out of the headlines, and a clever way to attack Rethugs who would no dobt rise to the bait, and call BoweB a pussy, Islam lovin' deserter. Well, the Repubs were smart and focused on Obummer's unlawful deal, and it was Obummer who did the BoweB is a hero fandango in the Rose Garden and sending the hapless Rice on TV. It was Obummer's Legacy Media pals who scrutinized BoweB's walk off of Post. Less than a week later we have the spectacle of Obummer's soldier boy calling the platoon 'psychopaths' and the (now civilian) platoon gathering on TV to call out BoweB more and demand he be court martialed. This is great, except 5 mass murderers are loose, and they will kill the innocent again. http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2014/06/06/bergadahls-platoon-on-being-called-psychopaths-n1848468?utm_source=BreakingOnTownhallWidget_4&utm_medium=story&utm_campaign=BreakingOnTownhall#!

Dumbass Brooks on Bergdahl.

Contains this beauty;

The five prisoners released from Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, in a swap for Bergdahl seem like terrible men who could do harm. But their release may have been imminent anyway.

Charles Manson had to murder those people because their murders were imminent anyway.

NK(withnewsoftware)

The 'released anyway' meme is such bullshit. when are war criminals released before trial?, even where declared nation state war ends with a treaty. Were Goering and Tojo promptly released after the surender treaties were signed (they were tried and hanged)? Just complete bullshit. Oh, the 5 Taliban were going to be released, but not for any legal reason-- Obummer fiat was going to release them. Bastard.

Jack is Back! (But in Typhus Hell)

At the most depressing Orly Airport ready to board an even more depressing EasyJet to Venice. A heated discussion between Mrs. JiB and the check in lady in spirited French regarding the amount of hand luggage (hers packed solid with cameras, lens, computers - IOW's not the stuff you check in the hold. Now we have arranged to stuff some stuff into one bag - her carryon - and lightened the load of the camera and computer bag to make it chekable at the gate.

I just told her that we will get to the get expecting the worst and be pleasantly surprised that they let us on as is without any extra trouble. That is usually how it works out.

Not much in the way of posting for me as we have been full of walks and visits in Paris. Yesterday we did Musee Orsay and today a nice mass at Sacre Coeur then lunch in the village back down the fenicular to Anvers station and back to St. Michel to send off Frederick's godfather back to London via RER and Eurstar.

Getting very hot and stuffy in France. Same weather forecast for Italy and our cruise.

Why?

jimmyk

The JEF's speech wasn't as bad as I'd feared, though he couldn't resist inserting himself into it by talking about his grandfather and grandmother. But his narcissism (and hostility to the Brits) came out by his almost complete omission of anything but Americans, as though D-Day was an American endeavor.

Still, I'd half expected him to put D-Day in the context of his own struggles against racism, or to say that if it weren't for his election and the stopping of the rise of the oceans, these beaches might not be here today.

Responding to DuDa from the previous thread, he said;

"What if it transpires that Bowe Bergdahl is not only the perfect symbol of war.....but IS war?"

Ahh, nostalgia. From the beginning the Left have been warning that these conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan would turn into another Vietnam.

For a while, it looked that they were going to be right. Things got bogged down in Iraq, and no progress could be made in Afghanistan.

But then, something happened, the "Surge" in Iraq that was virulently opposed, turned things around in Iraq. By the time Obama took office, Iraq had been pacified, and recently they held their second free election. This time without any American help.

Obama, yielding to the pressure, he himself put on, on the "good war" the one in Afghanistan tried his own "surge". Then, as with everything else, he handcuffed the Military, thus ensuring its failure.

Finally, we had ourselves what they always predicted, another Vietnam looming disaster. Though it took Obama to ensure it came to pass. The Lefts nostalgia has been satisfied.

Only thing is, unlike the Vietnam War, we don't have the same poster children as we did back them. Bergdahl is their poster, a deserter, idealistic, ignorantly naive man-child. He can become the John Kerry of his generation, only dumber, as Kerry waited until he was safe in the US before his rantings.

Except, that this is not the late 60's or early 70's of that time, but it nice to think that it is. Isn't Nostalgia, wonderful!

James D.

Ignatz @ 10:51 - wow, I didn't think I could think worse of David Brooks...but that column managed it.

Are there really people out there who find anything worthwhile in the garbage produced by anyone on the NYT Op-Ed pages?

If you take Krugman, Friedman, Brooks, Dowd, Blow and whomever else all together, there's less combined intellectual merit there than in the deposits I clean out of the cat's litter box every day.

James D.

Obama, yielding to the pressure, he himself put on, on the "good war" the one in Afghanistan tried his own "surge". Then, as with everything else, he handcuffed the Military, thus ensuring its failure.

That's far to generous to Zero. He wasn't responding to pressure at all with his surge.

He just wanted something to point to, so he could claim to be tough. That was the only consideration.

Several thousand soldiers were sent to their deaths so Zero could gain an extra point or two in the polls.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

Brooks's comment is like that "ensued" sentence from a while back.
It implies their release was about to ensue from some unknown, unmovable outside agent.

If Barry wanted to remove the imminent release reason for trading them all he had to do was un-imminent their release.
Who just releases war criminals? What kind of whore writes a sentence like that; as though just releasing war criminals is now not even worth a comment?

And you coming to terms with that ugly piece of character assassination is fine- if you're a guy sitting over a computer in his moms basement. But if you're the entire right-wing media-political complex you essentially own what you've been saying about the Bergdahls for the last week,which is 'He deserted to join the Taliban and he planned and executed numerous attacks on American forces in the vicinity and is indirectly responsible for at least the deaths of 10 soldiers who went looking for him and his father is a Taliban sympathizer and a Muslim.


That's yours,you own it. That's Fox news/RNC intellectual property. Now,we already know that at least 95 per cent of that was made up by Republican strategists over at the RNC.....we don't yet know who made it up or why, but we'll find out-we're not going anywhere,the NYT is not going anywhere neither is CNN,MSNBC,NBC NEWS,ABC, this week,meet the press,face the Nation ETC ETC ETC...none of us are going anywhere and we're going to explore the Republican character assassinations on a young soldier who spent 5 years in captivity in absolutely,mind numbing brain busting painstaking detail over and over and over and over again.

JimmyK-- I hope you are reading this DD stuff. This is week old meme crap that was the Progs evil plan, i.e. shut down discussion about the release of Taliban and even the circumstances of BoweB's 'capture' by slamming the Rethugs for attacking a captive USA soldier boy and Islamophobia against the kooky frere Bergdahl. By Monday afternoon the meme was inoperative. The Congress Repubs didn't rise to the BoweB is Benedict Arnold bait and his dad is an Islamist Lord Haw Haw, instead Congress Repubs focused Obummer's insane release of the Taliban and Obummer's violation of Gitmo law. Second, the Legacy Media cited Pentagon sources that outed BoweB as a deserter, and third there was Obummer's disaster of sending out Rice to do the TV lying. Thanks to Obummer's stupidity, the thing has turned around on him and has blown up in the DEMs face like a trick cigar. I'm sure the polling of Obummer/NYT attacking the grunts in the Platoon as 'Pathological' is also disasterous, so the final meme we'll hear is the 'we shouldn't condemn BoweB's idealism, so we'll commute his AWOL sentence.' Pleasant surprise, the Repubs didn't screw the pooch last week.

Freed Taliban vows: I’ll fight Americans again

I’m sure it’s just propaganda and he’s fully intent on living a quiet life of punching schoolgirls in the face or whatever it is that “peaceful” Taliban do.

Operation: Close Gitmo is coming along swimmingly, don’t you think?

One of the five Taliban leaders freed from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s release has pledged to return to fight Americans in Afghanistan, according to a fellow militant and a relative.

“After arriving in Qatar, Noorullah Noori kept insisting he would go to Afghanistan and fight American forces there,” a Taliban commander told NBC News via telephone from Afghanistan.

Noori pushed to return to Afghanistan after learning that the U.S. had provided written assurances that no country would arrest any of the five freed for a year as long as they lived peacefully, one of his relatives told NBC News by telephone from Afghanistan.

Obviously Obummer screwed the pooch himself here, but the Repubs did not screw this up last weekend, and the rest is now history. Obummer traded Taliban mass murderers for a kid who deserted; and the released Taliban have already vowed to kill more Americans, and the Dems are attacking Army VETERANs as pathological bullies. Sweet. The Taliban release is a disaster for the country, but at least the Dems are paying the politiccal price.

From someone a hell of a lot smarter than DuDu:

The real causality runs thus: Obama didn’t use the Taliban 5 to release Bergdahl. Obama used Bergdahl to release the Taliban 5. The false narratives about his poor health, his heroic record and the supposed consultation were all manufactured to fit this requirement. Obama really didn’t give a rat’s a** about Bergdahl. What he really wanted was to find some way to spring those five Taliban gentlemen.

Obama’s strategy to “bring a fitting end” — in the words of Todd, Murray and Dunn — to the War on Terror has been to pay them off. He never intended to beat the enemy. He never even tried. All the stuff in Afghanistan, well that was just for show, for optics, to look tough.

This is the Chicago way taken to an international scale. Obama arguably has a mandate from the left wing of the US voters to do exactly that: bribe terrorists from The Man’s stash. Unfortunately the other voters, who were taken in by his high flown promises to “reach out” or “reconcile” with the Muslim world — all that “I’ll buy the world a Coke stuff” — didn’t quite get the drift. Eventually they’ll catch on.

I hope it’s clear now.

I hope so, too.

The fathers beard was an especially nice touch......and hiding the fact that he's a devout christian

Yeah, because we know how much the democratic base loves them some devout christians.

Geniuses I tell ya!

Wrong: I've implored TM to clear that mick trash out of here to no avail. Now might be a good time to discuss how the IRA were in negotiations with Germany during WW2.

You are absolutely funny and insightful albeit somewhat obsessive.

I think is is all very accurate. The ultimate Obummer .... a do nothing Bull Shitter. Yet, he's caused so much damage: http://freebeacon.com/politics/dialing-it-in/

According to Mirriam-Webster, 'somewhat' is defined as:

some·what pronoun \-ˌ(h)wät, -ˌ(h)wət, (ˌ)səm-ˈ\ —used to make a statement or description less forceful or definite

Eisenhower had a note already written if the invasion failed:

“Our landings in the Cherbourg-Havre area have failed to gain a satisfactory foothold and I have withdrawn the troops. My decision to attack at this time and place was based upon the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that Bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt it is mine alone.”

Sounds just like Obama and Benghazi, no?

Bergdahl: Child on the battlefield. Check.

Obama: Child in the White House. Check.

DuDa: Child in the comments section. And...check.

Ladies and gentlemen of JOM, we have hit the trifecta.

BTW, happy D-Day Anniversary to everyone at JOM, and extra special thanks to those who serve, those who served, and those whose loved ones served and/or made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Congress Repubs didn't rise to the BoweB is Benedict Arnold bait and his dad is an Islamist Lord Haw Haw, instead Congress Repubs focused Obummer's insane release of the Taliban and Obummer's violation of Gitmo law.

Straw man. What I was objecting to was your ridicule of people here for suggesting Bergdahl was a deserter, even comparing them to Susan Rice:


what are the names/ranks of the witnesses to Bergdahl's desertaton?... Right now that narrative is a persuasive as the fool Rice calling him a hero.

Even though the people making the charges had identified themselves, as was pointed out to you immediately.

Obviously people in government should not jump to conclusions about someone's guilt, but anyone who thinks that this would have blown up in the JEFs to the extent it did were it not for the publicity about the desertion charges must be smoking something. Of course I agree it was a terrible decision even if Bergdahl had been, as someone said, Audie Murphy.

From NK's link at 1:20:

These hollow-chested men, Nietzsche said, would blanch at the first site of difficulty. They would surrender and look inward, content to spend their days in the pursuit of pleasure. In Obama we have more than a Last Man. We have a Last President

I think Bergdahl is nuts. I also think he comes from a family that is nuts. I also think he's a deserter and probably a traitor.

Maybe Obama can have him tried in juvenile court.

Lyle--

that handwritten note was recovered by a Military aid when Eisenhower discarded it in his stately SHAEF command house. It is part of the US Army war record, and oddly misdated 'July' 6 ,1944. Eisenhower was under enormous stress in the days before and on D-Day. looking at the video of him with the paratroopers is painful, because he met with those men with the knowledge that the intel estimates predicted something like 70% casualties. Kay Summersby's autobiography states that when Eisenhower got into his car after sending off the paratroopers he told her that he could barely look them in the eye and almost became sick shaking their hands. Just like Obummer... right.

Jane

This is how it should be.

I thought this last paragraph in this story by a WaPo writer was worth repeating:

“I had forgotten about that abducted American,” Manikhel said. “I hope the U.S. can rearrest the Talibs that they released.”

Ibrahim Manikel was the intelligence chief of a small Afghan area and he was explaining what the local villagers were thinking when Bergdahl walked thru the village 5 years ago while looking for the Taliban.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

--DD@12:51-- c'mon Ignatz we know that's you. --

Give me a little credit. I couldn't write something that insipid if I tried.

As things look worse for Barry, WeeDavey has descended into common trollery.
I just SOB when I see his drivel coming up now. He's become just another boring hack.
