According to a story published yesterday on Gateway Pundit, the Obama Administration has tapes proving that Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl joined the Taliban.
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was allegedly taken captive in Afghanistan during the summer of 2009. He was eventually released in May 2014 as part of a deal that released five Taliban members being held in Guantanamo Bay.
The prisoner exchange was met with controversy and the circumstances regarding Bergdahl’s capture were investigated. Just a few months ago, we found out that Bergdahl had been charged with counts of desertion and misbehavior.
David Hunt, retired Colonel, shocked us last night when he explained during his appearance on The O’Reilly Factor that the Obama administration had proof of Bergdahl’s allegiance to the Taliban – but did not use this evidence in his trial.
“June 30th, 2009, Bergdahl deserts his post in southeast Afghanistan. July 1st and 2snd, in a standard briefing to a commander of his unit, Fourth Brigade of the 25th Infantry division, we have tapes of Taliban talking on their own phones talking about Bergdahl trying to join them,” said Hunt to O’Reilly. “This information was known July 2nd on and yet we still traded him for five terrorists, had a White House ceremony, and now we’ve taken two years since he’s come back to do something which takes 90 days. The government has not yet and it doesn’t sound like it’s going to even use these tapes against Sgt. Bergdahl.”
When asked how the government got the tapes, Hunt explained, “There are programs…we listen to the enemy, and people who are speaking Pashtun and any language the Taliban in that section are using…listening because they were told to and they were also listening Bergdahl’s phone.”
Yet another scandal involving the Middle East added to Obama’s quickly-growing list.
