Deserter Bowe Bergdahl Says Taliban Tortured Him But Treated Him Better than United States
Bowe Bergdahl admits that the Taliban tortured him in a cage but they treated him better than the US
The Obama administration knew that Bergdahl, was planning on “going over to the other side” when he deserted. A military investigation discovered that Bergdahl was hoping to escape to Uzbekistan and then to Russia.
The Obama White House accused Bowe Bergdahl’s platoon mates of “swiftboating” him after the Obama White House released five top Gitmo terrorists for the deserter. The State Department spokesperson said his platoon mates “were not reliable sources.”
Lt Darryn Andrews, from Dallas, Texas, died at the age of 34 on Sept 4, 2009 during his second tour of Afghanistan.
He was searching for deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
The Hill reported:
Bowe Bergdahl, the Army deserter who walked off his base in Afghanistan, is whining that the US treated him worse than the Taliban.
The 31-year-old sergeant told British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview reported in The Sunday Times of London: “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat.’ ”
That got him less upset than the “administrative duties” the Army assigned him while awaiting trial, he said.
“Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for life,’’ he said.
“We may as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs.”
During his nearly five years as an unwilling guest of the Taliban, he said, he was kept in a steel cage and tortured.
