“I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”
Why, that’s courtesy of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, although chances are good Bill Ayers has said something very similar on multiple occasions.
Bergdahl, as we’re learning, expressed ongoing disillusion with America, going as far as calling her “the most conceited country.”
These hostile sentiments where coming, mind you, while American soldiers were dying by the thousands to neutralize terrorist threats and liberate local populations in Afghanistan from Taliban oppression. Of course, regardless of whether or not you think the Afghanistan mission was merited, a “conceited country” doesn’t fight a war with humanitarian undertones.
But there was Bergdahl, writing emails to his father Bob that were trashing this country and trashing his commander as an “old fool.”
Bob Bergdahl’s response to his son even suggests that he encouraged the alleged desertion:
“OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!”
Three days later Bergdahl went missing.
To Susan Rice, this translates to serving “the United States with honor and distinction.”
And while Bergdahl was harboring anti-American sentiments that are normally reserved for faculty lounges, his father was gaining sympathy for Jihadists held at Gitmo. He tweeted recently (but later deleted) how he was “still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners” and remarked how God would “punish” Americans for the “death of every Afghan child.”
Then at Saturday’s press conference announcing the terrorist swap, Bob Bergdahl’s opening statement was taken from the Quran and spoken in Arabic.
As a former CIA intelligence officer noted:
What none of these media [are] reporting is that the father’s (SGT Bowe Bergdahl’s father Bob) first words at the WH were in Arabic – those words were “bism allah alrahman alraheem” – which means “in the name of Allah the most gracious and most merciful” – these are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur’an except one (the chapter of the sword – the 9th) – by uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam. There is no question but POTUS knows this.
The Washington Post’s headline today is “Joy about Bergdahl release gives way to questions.”
Like if the Bergdahls are radicalized.
