You can take this to the bank.
When Barak Hussein Obama pulled off the terrible trade – five top Taliban killers released from Gitmo for an Army enlisted soldier – he figured it would get his latest scandal off the front pages.
The Benghazi cover-up and lies, “Fast and Furious,” IRS abuses against political conservatives, an invasion of illegals at the border, and widespread mismanagement and corruption at the VA, BAM had to get these troubles off the TV and newspaper front pages around the nation.
Don’t you folks know this is Obama’s “hope and change,” and the “most transparent administration in history?” Yeah, right.
Well, anyway, here’s the scoop on how Bowe Bergdahl is going to end up a very wealthy man.
LOTS OF MONEY ON THE HORIZON
The sergeant E-5 (promoted twice, almost three times, while in “captivity”), stands to haul down $300,000 in back pay and “bennies” if Chuck Hagel and the “commander-in-chief” succeed in painting him as a legitimate “prisoner-of-war,” instead of a wacko private who deserted his post in a combat zone and went looking for the bad guys – the Taliban.
BAM and the Pentagon didn’t count on at least eight of Bergdahl’s former unit members – including his NCO supervisor – coming forward (despite efforts to muzzle them by making the GI’s sign non-disclosure statements) and revealing Bergdahl “walked away” and deserted his post in Afghanistan.
Doesn’t look good, does it? Five important Taliban prisoners, each with blood on their hands, being sprung for an American deserter?
PRETEND HE’S NOT A DESERTER – SGT IS
A “PRISONER-OF-WAR” – DIDN’T YOU KNOW?
We don’t think Obama will allow that contrast to stand. Note that he and his flunkie Hagel keep referring to Bergdahl as a “prisoner-of-war.” That’s the tip-off that the Army “investigation” will result in a whitewash. Certainly, if there is a court-martial for desertion – some press reports have Bergdahl walking around with a weapon, taking “target practice” with an AK-47 with his “captors” and playing soccer with the Taliban.
Already we’ve heard tales from the White House that Bergdahl tried to “escape” several times and was beaten, that the Taliban kept him in a cage. We’ve been told that the poor lad wasn’t all that bright and didn’t realize what he was doing when he skipped out on his Army buddies and, in a village outside the wire, asked to be taken to the Taliban.
Increased and far more accurate attacks on his deserted outpost right after he left – that would stink in the nostrils of most combat veterans if they knew that, so the Obama “spin-machine” and his “mainstream media” allies have their work cut out for themselves. .
OUR “CRYSTAL BALL” A BIT CLOUDY
Predicting things – like the sudden crumbling of Iraq – is a tricky business. We don’t want to climb out too far on a limb here, but if past behavior is any guide, the Pentagon will portray Bergdahl as anything but a deserter.
We should pity him, they’ll say. What he did will be downplayed, despite the fact if everyone in uniform knew they could do that and get away with it, it’d destroy discipline and undermine morale in all American fighting units.
Look for a final result of any court action being Bergdahl found guilty of being AWOL, not the more serious offense of desertion. Collaboration, if any, with the enemy – no way will it even go there.
COULD RAKE IN AT LEAST ONE MILLION DOLLARS
The sticky issue of Bergdahl’s back pay – he could haul in double the $300,000 mentioned earlier if Army officials give it the green light – could be finessed. We’ve seen such double-standards before in the U.S. military. A slap in the face like that to all honorable servicemen and women who didn’t desert or cavort with the enemy, would be considered by BAM just a blip on the political radar screen, then to be forgotten in the next news cycle,
You can be sure it won’t be forgotten by the families and loved ones of the six soldiers who allegedly died on missions looking for “over-the-hill” Bergdahl. Can you imagine how they will feel when the onetime private banks those “big bucks” and gets lucrative book deals and TV movie offers?
Maybe by then, we’ll be calling Bowe Bergdahl, the “million-dollar man.”
