My points were simple. You think the army makes the man and I dispute that. Seek for yourself why I might be wrong. ATS isn't about 'post a source because if you don't my world will crumble' all the time. Nothing was framed a 'fact'; go seek for yourself.

I was struck by the use of "ameen" in the deleted tweet. Is this the form of "amen" used by the church he is alleged to attend?

AMEEN
Ameen is the Arabic version of the word Amen which has its origins in Hebrew and means 'so be it'. Ameen is often said after a supplication (dua) with the spiritual meaning: "O Allah, respond to (or answer) what I/we have said".

Why should that mean anything neferious if the father of this kid has spent the last five years trying to understand what has happened to his son? What lengths would you go to as a father? Or is this going to become 'the kid's dad has a Taliban beard, he must be a …'

I am just pointing out an interesting fact. If some people wish to draw conclusions that indicate sympathy towards the Taliban, just as you have, so be it. Ameen.

Wow...it just gets better and better.

As they stood with Obama in the Rose Garden hours after their son's release, Bob Bergdahl, who grew a long, thick beard to honor his son, said Bowe Bergdahl was having trouble speaking English after his rescue. The elder Bergdahl had worked to learn Pashto, the language spoken by his son's captors, and delivered him a message in that language.

He has trouble speaking English, his first language, the language he grew up speaking? And dad grew a long thick beard to honor him? WTF?????????????????

Great way to misunderstand a post and a response indicative of how many will misconstrue the reality. Go 'Team America'.

It seems he has more respect for sharia than "man centric secular democracy cults."


@daqeqa Agree! "Democracy" is a cult in the West. I think most of afgs see law in terms of sharia not secular democracy, man centric laws

Just look at the recent polls here and then hit the street and ask some questions of the "average joe". It won't be good.

You realise that the paper you link to is a notorious anti-Islamic rag forged and sold in the tabloid gutter for the less critically minded of folk in the UK. The editor is known for truth bending. The Daily 'Fail' is a less than creditable news source and akin to the nonsense Fox spouts in the States.

Funny how this (after 5 years) just popped up from no where, why after 5 years? I would think if Obama was ready to negotiate with terrorist and give up 5 of the worst Taliban leaders this could have been done long ago.

This smells just like Osama Ben Laden and his timely death... Obama seems to have wild cards through out the Muslim world.

This is all propaganda, if you have seen his tweets they either has brainwashed him or he has sold his soul for returning son maybe he is blackmailed to be a spokesperson for Islam. Well Obama seems to have a lot of respect for the countries involved.

Maybe you are not "critically minded" enough to read that the guardian cited the Sunday times as it's source?




The 24-year-old has converted to Islam and now has the Muslim name Abdullah, one of his captors told The Sunday Times. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk... 2g

Come on mate, theirs was a real world, real serious situation with a very real chance of being beheaded with a blunt bread knife on the cards.

If my Son was facing such a fate, flag waving jingoistic sentiments aside, i would run around the UK stark bollock naked and singing i'm a little teapot at the top of my lungs if i thought it might persuade the enemy to think he was sympathetic to their views.

Real world remember.

It's brinkmanship...nothing more.

Last email to parents


On June 27, 2009, according to Rolling Stone,[19] Bowe sent a final e-mai­l to his parents: "The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting."

His email went on to describe his disillusionment in the army: "In the US army you are cut down for being honest... but if you are a conceited brown nosing # bag you will be allowed to do what ever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank... The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools...I am sorry for everything here. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid, that they have no idea how to live. We don't even care when we hear each other talk about running their children down in the dirt streets with our armored trucks... We make fun of them in front of their faces, and laugh at them for not understanding we are insulting them...I am sorry for everything. The horror that is america is disgusting...There are a few more boxes coming to you guys. Feel free to open them, and use them."

As my husband said, he was already "stockholmed" before running off to join the Taliban.

His father's behavior, just explains why and how...
