When word first came out of the exchange of five top Muslim terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl, it seemed we could attribute the debacle to the exceedingly poor judgment of a conspicuously unqualified president who may lack the mental capacity to consider the inevitable effect on the safety of Americans throughout the world. But as more information comes to light, it is starting to smell like something even worse.
Bergdahl was not a legitimate prisoner of war. He is a deserter who went AWOL and turned up among a band of terrorists. He has been described by a company commander as a “dirtbag” and a “sympathizer” (i.e., with the terrorist enemy).
Bergdahl evidently converted to Islam and was teaching the Taliban bomb-making skills with which to kill Americans. From a 2010 report:
Afghan intelligence officials also believe that Bergdahl is ‘cooperating with the Taliban’ and is acting as adviser to fighters at a base in the tribal area of Pakistan.
Bowe isn’t the only one in the family of questionable loyalty in the struggle between Western Civilization and militant Islam. Check out what his father tweeted, then deleted:
