    Also interesting is Bergdahl's father speaking to him in a language other than English because his son might have "forgotten" English. What?! Also very interesting is his saying, "I am your father." That's weird.

    Why is that? The military is part of government. I would expect it. Wouldn't you?

    Did you think she was such a moron that she didn't learn from the last bunch of lies she televised. I was blown away.

    In some thread or another, I referred to Rice as a "useful idiot." I think her utility has greatly diminished after the second round of talk-show tales.

    As as we break the law, and are courteous about it, it's okay.

    Oh good. Because it is damn hard to post a link to something I heard on the radio or television. So thank you for your consideration.

    As for the 50 soldiers, I have already posted more than once in this thread that this number was obviously wrong. As for my comment about the Pashto, I have seen that on Fox and CNN at least:

    Bob Bergdahl also spoke directly to his son in Pashto adding that Bowe “is having trouble speaking English.” Col. Jack Jacobs, a Medal of Honor recipient and an MSNBC analyst, said that’s not unusual. ‘When I was in Vietnam, I spent my entire time with the Vietnamese, speaking Vietnamese. I actually started to dream in Vietnamese and it took me several weeks after I got home before I started to think first in English.”

    In addition to coverage on the cable news networks, CBS, FOX and NBC provided broadcast special reports.Father of Freed POW Bowe Bergdahl Asks Media to Keep Its Distance - TVNewser

    What's more interesting is that there hasn't been a report or interview that doesn't jive with the platoon's account.

    The only thing missing from you is oppo-research on the platoon.

    I'd like to see some evidence that his platoon is "right wing". I want party registrations, voting patterns, campaign contributions, the whole shebang.
