Beneath contempt. One minute Geraldo is defending the cowardly traitor Bergdahl and in the next in a sloppy attempt to discredit them he openly sneered at the brave and courageous who served beside him. That is until he decided to defect and join the Taliban jihad brigade.
Look for it around the 3:04 mark.
“I don’t care what he (Bowe Bergdahl) did, I want him to come home and we’ll sort it out here. He’ll have a court martial, he’ll have a lawyer, he’ll have a prosecutor. Those five…six …the sainted guys that were on Megyn’s (Kelly) show last night….”
What is the matter G? Do masculine brave men intimidate you?
The “sainted”: ‘He’s Not a Hero’: 6 of Bowe Bergdahl’s Platoon Members Speak Out
(Fox News Insider) –Responding to Kelly’s questions about an exclusive Fox News report by James Rosen that alleges Bergdahl converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a “warrior for Islam,” former platoon leader Evan Buetow said, “We knew that he had deserted.”
Buetow went on to say that the unit on the ground in Afghanistan had knowledge that Bergdahl was attempting to find the Taliban, or someone outside of the platoon with whom he could speak in English who could talk to the Taliban for him.
When asked by Kelly for a head-count of how many among the six platoon members thought Bergdahl deserted, every hand went up.
“It doesn’t matter what his motives were. We all took an oath and had to abide by orders, and you don’t just leave your fellow Americans to join somebody else,” said Cody Full, who was Bergdahl’s former roommate.
Former platoon leader Evan Buetow described in detail the morning the platoon realized Bergdahl was missing, and the subsequent search that ensued.
“This is not about politics. This is about the fact that Bergdahl walked away from us, went to try to find the Taliban, and we know that for a fact. We were all there, and there is not one person you could find who would say that they don’t believe that — at least who was there,” said Buetow.
“He’s not a hero, and he did not serve with distinction, and that’s a spit in the face to everyone who joined the Army and anyone who died looking for him. What do you think their families think? They don’t get their loved one back like Bergdahl’s family,” said Buetow.[...]
Speak for yourself.
Hi amigos I think the attacks on Sgt Bergdahl are way premature at best. Find truth first, then act. Happily heading to PR I’ll send selfies
“One other lesson I learned in the Army is that we leave no man behind. And we will not leave these four men behind.” –Rep. Tom Cotton
This bitch slap most def left a mark.
Mr. Speaker, couple lessons I learned in the Army were you moved to the sound of gunfire and the most important step in the troop leading procedures is to supervise the execution of you orders.
When Americans were fighting for their lives in Benghazi, Barack Obama did neither. He sent no quick reaction force and didn’t even stay in the situation room to supervise the execution of his orders. We expect more from the lieutenants in the army than our president gave us that night.
For two years he’s covered up this failure of leadership by stonewalling. Not anymore. We will now get to the truth.
But what do our colleagues on the other side of the aisle say to this? They express great outrage at politicizing this matter.
When I was leading troops in Iraqin 2006, men and women who were being shot at and blown up by al Qaeda, where was the outrage as they fundraised endlessly off the Iraq war?
Where was the outrage as they viciously attacked our commanders?
Where was the outrage when they said soldiers were war criminals?
“What he was saying, and perhaps not as eloquently as was relayed, that America is becoming a welfare state that makes us more reliant upon the government and eats away at the freedom of us all. He was attempting to point out what little progress has been made for black people who once lived in slavery. During that point in our history, black people were totally reliant upon someone else for their food, homes, etc. and not much has changed, sadly, in many cases for poor black families. Slavery was wrong, horrible, and we do not support that. Cliven was trying to illustrate how dire the situation was not only in the past, but currently, and how it will negatively impact the future, if Americans, of any color, continue to be dependent upon the government to survive.”
