Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was a five-year captive of the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan, may have been an intelligence operative whose cover was blown after the White House outed the CIA’s top intelligence official in the Islamic country by mistake.
Bergdahl, 28, was found by the Islamist insurgent group in the Paktika province of Afghanistan on June 30, 2009 after allegedly deserting his unit.
But considering that the Obama administration moved to secure his release barely a week after the White House accidentally revealed the head of CIA operations in Afghanistan, in addition to other strange circumstances, Bergdahl may have actually been an embedded intelligence asset who allowed himself to be captured in order to infiltrate the Haqqani network, yet was ultimately endangered by the Obama administration’s blunder.
The Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, said that the administration had to move quickly to save Bergdahl’s life but why would Bergdahl be in danger now more than ever during his previous five years of captivity?

I sense there is MUCH more to the story than we will ever know, but that doesn't explain Bergdahl's father praising allah. Or the smile on obama's face when he heard such praise.

I could be wrong Bob but I think this guy deserted during time of war.

If he really should be an asset of sorts, shouldn't we then NOT try expose him?
Any intel he might have would be worth so much more if nobody knows he has it.

naaa the guy from the get go, had been talking bout going to the other side and how he didnt like America......
I tend to agree.
But wouldn't that be standard procedure for an operation like the story is suggesting?
