‘This is an embarrassment’: Glenn reacts to Taliban video depicting Bergdahl release

As if things could not get any worse for the Obama Administration, the Taliban went ahead and released a video Wednesday morning that purportedly shows the moment in which Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is handed over to the United States military. The video will obviously be used for propaganda purposes, and because the U.S. has released very few details about the mission, the Taliban is in the unique position of controlling the narrative.

Watch the video below:

As TheBlaze reported, you will notice the military helicopter lands in a valley, as apparent members of the Taliban stand perched on surrounding hills with weapons. Non-uniformed individuals, presumably Americans, then walk over and shake hands with Bergdahl’s captors, who are holding a white flag. A shaky Bergdahl, seen holding a bag that he ultimately leaves behind, is then escorted to the chopper where he is patted down.

Based on that description, does anything about this situation seem odd to you?

On radio this morning, Glenn shared the conversation he had with a Special Forces friend of his about the video. (HINT: It’s not good for the U.S.)

As noted, this video was obviously filmed and released for propaganda purposes. Remarkably, however, it seems to serve as the only documentation of the release the public currently has. Meanwhile, as Bergdahl remains sequestered in a German military hospital, the U.S. government has largely refused to share any details.

“The Taliban is the source of information on this one – by the way,” Glenn said. “They're the ones showing us everything. Okay. So we have the video, and nothing from the United States government.”

When Glenn spoke to his friend this morning, he pointed out several troubling aspects of the video that seem to show the U.S. on the defensive the entire time.

“You're over in a war zone, and you're an American helicopter. You see a guy down on the ground with a rocket launcher – look at the video. What do you assume is coming your way,” Glenn asked. “Probably some sort of rocket. So then it is an immediate shoot to kill order, if you're in a helicopter and you see somebody standing there taking a videotape of your helicopter. It's shoot to kill because it is a safe bet that they're probably going to use this as propaganda video. And they're going to blow up the helicopter. So there's problem number one.”

Another concern is where the helicopter lands.

“Problem number two… Do you see the mountainsides around,” Glenn asked. “We're landing our helicopter in a in the low point, so they have all of the high points… Look at the guys in the video. You can see the guys in the video. They all have their weapons at the ready.”

Furthermore, after Bergdahl is handed over, he is brought to the idling chopper and frisked. Had he been outfitted with some sort of suicide vest, the entire helicopter would have blown up.

“Look, you got guys sitting inside. You have guys just sitting inside the helicopter,” Glenn said. “They bring him up to the helicopter, and that's when our guys frisk him. Well, I don't know. If you're starting to frisk him…”

While Glenn is certainly not a military expert by any means, his sources have made it clear that this was a very sloppily executed exchange.

“The guys I talked to – and I don't know this kind of stuff – but the guys I talked to said, ‘This is so sloppy on our part… It's not standard operating procedure. It's not the way we do it,’” Glenn concluded. “This is an embarrassment… Every soldier I talked to is embarrassed by this… Absolutely unbelievable.”

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
