Michelle Malkin: Bergdahl release was ‘a diversionary tactic that blew up in their face’

In her weekly column, conservative columnist and author Michelle Malkin details five years’ worth of conversations she has had with both active and retired servicemen who were deeply familiar with the circumstances surrounding Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s disappearance and capture. On radio this morning, Malkin joined Glenn to discuss her exclusive report about Bergdahl’s desertion.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

While Malkin’s exclusive report was published this week, she raised many of the questions are now hearing tossed around the media five years ago when Bergdahl was first captured. In her latest column, Malkin writes:

Five years ago, I publicly raised questions about Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion from Blackfoot Company, 1-501 Infantry (Airborne), 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division.

A few weeks after his so-called “capture” in late June 2009, three conflicting accounts had surfaced: U.S. officials told the Associated Press Bergdahl had “walked off” the base with three Afghans; the Taliban claimed on its website that “a drunken American soldier had come out of his garrison” and into their arms; and Bergdahl claimed in his Taliban “hostage video” that he had “lagged behind a patrol” before being captured.

I asked on my blog: Were the AP’s sources mistaken? Or is the disturbing first account the right one? What about the “three Afghans” who Pfc. Bergdahl reportedly “just walked off” with after his shift? Who are they? What’s going on?

Five years ago, one of the brave soldiers who risked his life to search for Bergdahl answered my questions and I published his statement on July 20, 2009:

“I know the story and the accounts that he was drunk or that he was lagging behind on patrol are not true– this soldier planned this move for a long time. He walked off the post with a day’s supply of water and had written down before that he wanted to live in the mountains…he is an embarrassment to everyone who has worn the uniform.”

She goes on to quote a source that remains anonymous because he still “holds a highly sensitive position.” The source recounts much the horror he and his comrades have been living through in the aftermath of Bergdahl’s release.

Her source is quite clear about the legality of the actions the Obama Administration took to secure Bergdahl’s release:

“The fact that our government negotiated with terrorists and our enemy is incomprehensible. The fact that they exchanged five war criminals for a traitor is sickening. The worst part for those of us that suffered through that time is that PFC Bergdahl is being hailed as some kind of hero. He was automatically promoted to Specialist and Sergeant, ranks he does not deserve and did not earn. I have no doubt he will receive back pay for these past five years, a substantial sum. There will be book deals, and his family are celebrities. I am glad he is safe, and happy for his family, but he should return home to face a court martial.”

With all of this in mind, Glenn asked Malkin what she believes this release is really about.

“It’s transparent, of course, that this desperate weekend move to look like a hero and stand by a soldier who was not left behind really was a diversionary tactic that blew up in their face,” Malkin explained. “The death toll from the Veterans Affairs scandal just keeps piling up and… there’s [bloodstains] all over the White House to no longer be white-washed by a previously compliant lapdog media that is also finally coming to attention.”

As Malkin explained, the VA scandal might actually prove to be the most damaging for the Obama Administration because local media outlets are not going to let the stories of abuse be swept under the rug. Knowing they were in deep trouble, Malkin believes the Administration orchestrated a series of photo ops for both Vice President Joe Biden and President Obama.

“I think one of the reasons why the VA scandal has been so treacherous for the Administration is that they can’t just blame it on Glenn Beck, and Michelle Malkin, and rabid opponents of Barack Obama because so many of those stories are coming out of local media outlets that are committed to covering their veteran population. So you can’t squelch that,” she said. “Well, then, what do you do? Hey, you send Biden to the Air Force Academy, and Obama to West Point, and then to Afghanistan, and then back home to stand by the Bergdahl parents who opened their mouths and revealed very compelling truths about where these people really stand.”

As more and more damning information is reveled about Bergdahl and the circumstances surrounding his release, Glenn asked Malkin what she believes will come next.

“I think that there’s a serious case for impeachment,” Malkin said. “And I think it’s the one issue – when we’re dealing with… men and women in uniform who put their lives on the line for us and their commander-in-chief betrays them and endangers them even further… it behooves me to remind people that this is just the tip of the iceberg. All of the others who’ve been abandoned and left behind by this President have to be remembered as well.”

    I agree totally!!! It’s like he has been in contact with these terrorists and told them I”ll get you out it’s just gonna take a minute but I’ll get it done and he somehow knew if he didn’t do it now he would not get another opportunity. It is clear that is is sitting in our Commanders chair and he’s on the other team, probably feeding them information. It takes alot of guts to go behind Congress’ back after being told no repeatedly and breaking the law. He has never suffered any consequences for any of the crap he has pulled before so he figures he’ll get away with it again. He needs to be IMPEACHED immediately!! We the American people feel like there’s nothing we can do but sit back and watch us be destroyed. I thought that what we pay our lawmakers to do!! If they can’t do it maybe they need to be replaced with people who aren’t afraid to do the job!! OMG isn’t there something that can be done about this guy? I mean holy crap is the USA going to just lay down and take this? Please tell us what we can do to get him out of there because all the apologies in the world should not be able to sweep this under the rug yet again!! I thought for sure Benghazi would have been the driving nail but I was wrong!! Please help us!!!!!

  • Skipfly

    I am happy that they have brought the traitorous b@stard back so that he can stand trial for treason. Think about it for one second. How is it that this one person who was “captured” by the Taliban was kept alive for 5 years, but anyone else was recordedbeing beheaded for their propaganda? Hmmmm, makes me think that this “soldier” was a conspirator more than a captive.

  • Gary

    “Be glad the soldier is home” where do you see a soldier? I see a deserting traitor who can go f himself.

    I would have been glad if it was the solder from Mexico back home, Bergdahl can go hang himself with his goat loving brethren.

  • Hudson

    are u serious?

  • Sandy Buchanan

    It’s not about “just be glad the soldier is back home”! This horror story is about going against the law with Congress, more lying, more dirty politics and big time – the giving back of 5 monsters! It’s about this soldier who left his post and six honorable soldiers died trying to find him! All of a sudden we have the commander and chief saying, “we don’t leave behind our soldiers’! Well, did you forget about Benghazi? Our commander and chief didn’t either bother trying to get them no matter what! Your statement reminded me of hillary’s – “what difference does it make”! I will not acknowledge that this president is commander and chief. He is a lying, self centered street organizer – his accomplishments only include divide, destroy and conquer.

  • Andrew Edwin Mitchell

    I’m not glad the guy is home. Especially not on these terms. You don’t deal with terrorists and you certainly don’t make a prisoner swap for a deserter who may well also turn out to be a collaborator/traitor. He was fine where he was. He made a decision to desert, he can live with the consequences. Who know what intelligence this guy may have willfully given his captors and what effect it may have had. Make a trade, well, I’m being a bit facetious, but about the only trade I would make for the guy is his own weight in bacon

  • Humorless

    if the Pentagon finds no evidence of desertion, you’ll claim “cover-up”.

    If the Pentagon charges Bergdahl, you’ll claim they “bravely fought against an attempted cover-up that failed.”

    That’s in a court of law. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and all the evidence says this guy is a traitorous scumbag who joined the enemy all by himself. Or did you mean only liberals can voice their opinion and nobody else.

    Hey, he just “forgot” to tell Congress he was planning to release the dream team even though he had extensive conversations with Congress not that long ago and they told him NO. Let a petulant little child, he stomps his foot and brings out his pen and phone to continue doing what every he wants. He started his administration claiming he would “fundamentally change” the US. He now is finding he can not accomplish that legally so he will do it any way he knows how. He understands that Holder will never prosecute. he also understands he may lose the Senate in a few months and that will make it more difficult to use his phone and pen. The people be damed, he will do what he wants until he is either out of office or MADE to stop. There is little way now to make him stop. How will we ever reverse the actions of his phone and pen? BTW, he just made 600 pages of EPA regs. What business can ever read and understand these regs without serious legal help – $$$$. The administration can interpret anyway they like – just like Obamacare and its hidden regs.

  • Anonymous

    A thorough investigation was done when he walked away and they found he deserted – if the results of that investigation are somehow shown to be faulty, then we will give him the benefit of the doubt. However, considering how many lies this administration has told, even if they release a conflicting investigation, I will have a hard time believing it and not those soldiers that served with Bergdahl.

This is an impeachable offense if the person sitting in the Oval Office were green with pink polka dots!!

    Yes, it is true that a prerequisite for impeachment is getting elected. Thanks for clearing that up for everyone.

    And as Michelle Malkin said, it was all done to distract the American public from Obama’s failures regarding the VA (and Benghazi as well, IMO). Obama ignored the 30 day notice rule because he wanted to look like a hero and not share any of the credit or glory. Well, it backfired on him. Now he is solely responsible for this mess. It’s all on him. And when these terrorists escape monitoring in Qatar (as they probably will), he’s responsible for that as well.

    so for a “POW” he was dressed well in the video eating , wearing the red hat. when they handed him over, the Taliban guy said something to him. and I know that his dad thanked “alla” not God what does that say? to me, it speaks volumes. and no way would anyone be allowed to say anything in the presence of the prez. w/ out him knowing it, not after DR. Ben Carson , so he had to understand Bergdahl’s words. and if you go to his twitter , you will see where his loyalty is. As far as the Marine in Mexico, there were more than 100,000 signatures, he should be working on his release. and, why is no one in the State Dept. fighting for Pastor Saeed Abedini, still in Iranian prison?

  • John Stevenson

    A couple things to consider: if he deliberately deserted why were such efforts made to get him back through those 5 years? Did the Army ignore the opinions of his mates? If he joined the Taliban then he was just another enemy combatant.
    In regard to him tipping the Taliban to our positions – maybe they took our lead and waterboarded him. We’ve been told over and over how successful that can be. If some extreme torture was used can anybody say they wouldn’t have squealed?
    This whole caper seems much more of an Army issue than the White House.

  • Furious

  • Kim Hunt

    I still have this sinking feeling that bergdahl is another “bright shiny excuse”. In my gut I feel Obama wanted the Taliban to lay off during the draw back. He doesn’t want it to turn into a disaster. Could it be he talked to them and they said they would hold back if he released the five? So could he have used bergdahl (finally after five years, because Obama doesn’t care if he rots) as a reason for the release of the five? But he has no clue the his platoon would break their silence, or that “afghan bob” was such an unstable loose cannon? Peel back the layers and think. The Taliban wasn’t holding bergdahl, it was the hassani, who normally only want money.

  • Theron Oates Jr.

    There is NO WAY we can wait till the next election (in 2 yrs) for the change.

    Poor, hopelessly naïve conservatives. Forever willing to chalk up Obama’s endless treason to error and foolishness. Always willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    That’s why we have gotten to where we are today. No because evil people did their deeds, but because otherwise people simply choose to believe the less-disturbing fantasy than the harsh reality.

    Even Ms. Malkin, an otherwise brave critic of the left, apparently can not bring herself to face the obvious fact. The President of the United States knowlingly freed all of these prisoners deliberately to increase the threat to our nation.

    Our Commander in Cheif is a traitor, and those with whom we entrust to report this fact, are all, every last one of them, conspiring to deny that fact.

If the troops would band together and round up all these traitors, Muslims and other traitors alike, and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law for their treasonous acts against the people, the citizens of the U.S.A. and especially our troops, it would give all of us patriots great satisfaction to see this happen. God willing, this needs to happen to stop this takeover of our government by our enemies and those who have shown themselves antithetical to our Founding Fathers’ Policies and The Constitution of the United States of America. My greatest joy is to imagine that we will rid ourselves of these evil men and women. Maybe we should put THEM at Gitmo, if nothing more severe! I would be elated to see that happen! God bless you once again, Glenn for sacrificing what you have to continue bringing us the truth!
