‘Game-changer’: Bowe Bergdahl allegedly wanted to renounce US citizenship


Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant that the Obama administration traded in exchange for five top Taliban terrorists, allegedly wrote a note indicating a desire to renounce his American citizenship, according to Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin.

Members of Bergdahl’s platoon indicated that the note he left behind when he deserted his post and weapon in Afghanistan stated not just that he was disillusioned with his time in the military, but also expressed a desire to renounce his citizenship.

The letter is evidence in a classified investigation of the sergeant’s activities and has not yet been released to the public.

Watch Griffin’s report on this on this developing story in the following Fox News segment:

The circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance in 2009, as well as those of his recent release have created more questions than answers, leading many to speculate that he was actually seeking the Taliban out when he wandered off the reservation.

Fox News co-host Jenna Lee first tweeted this development late Tuesday morning:

It didn’t take long for the news to get out and send the entire Twitterverse buzzing.

And it made yet another Twitter user recall the words National Security Advisor Susan Rice used to describe Bergdahl during her tour of the Sunday talk shows.

“Honor & distinction” can be placed right alongside “spontaneous demonstration,” the words she used to describe the terrorist attack on Benghazi on another Sunday talk show tour.

H/T Twitchy.

    Reports earlier of messages from Taliban shortly after Bergdahl’s disappearance re. U.S. soldier’s conversion to Islam & Teaching Bomb-Making. That indicates he had already renounced citizenship. Obama’s Treason.

      And there was a report rattler that Obama couldn’t understand why the military wasn’t thrilled with the prisoner swap.

    If the administration knew about Bergdahl’s disgruntled military history, they used him as a chess piece to allow them to release dangerous terrorists illegally.

    If the administration didn’t know about Bergdahl’s disgruntled military history, they are incompetent and used him as a chess piece to allow them to release dangerous terrorists illegally.

    Bergdahl’s status as a hero, deserter, or traitor is immaterial in light of the crimes that the administration has committed while securing his return. Don’t be distracted.

    The White House has apologized to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for failing to alert her in advance of a decision to release Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay.

    Feinsteintold reporters that she received a call from Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken on Monday evening apologizing for what the administration is calling an “oversight.”“I had a call from the White House last night, from Tony Blinken, apologizing for it,” she said.

    “He apologized and said it was an oversight,” she added.


    “I certainly want to know more about whether this man was a deserter,” she said of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

    So, no laws are broken if you apologize to the right person?

    Plus, shifting the focus to Bergdahl.

    Obama needs to do more than apologize. He needs to resign and come up with a birth certificate that will permit him to run for president of Afghanistan. Ridiculous? Everything about this president has been ridiculous since day one, including Congress’ willingness to tolerate his hijinks.
