    Bergdahl says he was tortured by Taliban captors

    Bergdahl says he was tortured by Taliban captors

    Just curious. This is the first report I've seen that this soldier we traded for in Afghanistan has said anything? I'll be curious to know who is directing his comments? Are these his words or has the obummer regime given him the best PR firm a government can buy?

    These comments are almost to politically correct. His email, his statements as reported by others and the concerns many had about his collaboration, treason and desertion are they "swift boating" him? Is that orchestrated by Fox? I see at least 6 young men coming forward and blasting this man....so do you believe one or six?

    This is my take on Mr. Bergdahl. I think that it was the right thing to do by going in and getting an American out of that situation; however, if Mr. Bergdahl is found guilty of what he is accused of than I would only presume that he alone will face the consequences.

    The majority does not rule for hearsay.

    Are you forgetting the 5 released terrorists? It is their effect, and that others will likely be taken to be traded, that bothers me.

    In all honesty I do not know who to believe.Those 6 young men may not be soldiers.Even if they are or were soldiers doesn't mean they were actually in Bergdahl's squad or team.Even if they were in his squad or team doesn't mean they were there or even telling the truth.Heck they themselves could be spreading hearsay. These six men could be right wing versions of Jesse MacBeth trying to get their 5 minutes of fame or just like many people pissed off that the Obama encouraged more troops and other Americans to be kidnapped by trading five terrorists for one soldier so they could be just trying to demonize a soldier in order make the president's attempt to score cool points blow up in his face.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's out there, seriously, assuming the administration wouldn't be all over that? Come on back reality.

    Not to be too partisan one way or another but did you realize that GWB released 500 prisoners?
