Bowe Bergdahl Scandal?


Meh, it's now easier to kill those 5 in the field instead of keeping them alive in Gitmo.

If there is one thing that the President is good at, its drone strikes.

Hardly in line with his image of reaching out and olive branch but whose counting.

Aren't hand-grenades also sometimes referred to as "pineapples"? Aren't pineapples considered an international symbol of peace and love? Send those bastard's a pineapple.

Pineapples were traditionally a way to brag that you could afford to have exotic fruit and other wares shipped to you. That the fragmentation grenade looks like one is coincidental.

Bowe Bergdahl Scandal?


As I read more of the stories on Bergdahl, I'm starting to form the opinion that Bergdahl's original intent did not pan out as expected.

I'm thinking that he intended to desert...blend in with the Afghan people and live the rest of his life as one of the locals. Instead...he ran into the Taliban and became a pawn.

Supporting this theory....his letters....reports that he tried to escape 1 or more times....and not wanting to talk to his parents. He possibly see's his dad as one of the reasons he was misguided about this thoughts and does not want to repeat it.

I also understand they are keeping him pretty isolated from outside news so he is not aware of the controversy surrounding him.

Or, he may realize his ass is in trouble and he is trying everything he can to keep his ass out of the brig.

I wonder...Has the Whitehouse changed its mind about releasing Terrorist #6 as it has been alleged was part of the original plan?

I heard on the news this morning that journalists have been looking for "The Five" but they are nowhere to be found. My guess is the are in Tahiti.
