Report: Bowe Bergdahl left note renouncing U.S. citizenship ~ By Joe Newby

But it appears Obama doesn't care if Bergdahl is a deserter or not, and said the government is not currently seeking to punish him, the Associated Press said.

Our main priority is making sure the transition that he’s undergoing after five years in captivity is successful,” he said during a news conference in Poland.

Questions have also been raised about the legality of the swap, as members of Congress say they were not informed within 30 days as required by law. According to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, Congress has heard nothing from the White House since 2011 when the idea of a prisoner swap was first suggested.

Like everyone else, when I first heard that a soldier who was a prisoner of war in Afghanistan was being released, I was exhilarated! That was on Saturday, May 31, 2014. But as time went on over the next few days, that exhilaration quickly turned sour. First, it was the five Taliban prisoners that were being held in Guantanamo - GITMO - that were part of the deal to get Bowe Bergdahl returned to the U.S. That was a problem. Then, there is the fact that Obama broke a law by not informing Congress 30 days prior to the prisoner exchange. That was definitely a problem.

And now it is being alleged that Bergdahl possibly deserted his post. His mother and father appear in the Rose Garden at the White House with Obama, like Bergdahl is a hero, only to have his father - with a beard that rivals that of any of the Taliban terrorists just released - speak in the language of the enemy. But if that wasn't enough, the next day, Susan Rice again gets face-time on a Sunday morning news show, saying that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction, and it is totally contrary to all we have been learning since then.

In the video below, Greta Van Susteren says, "There's got to be something we don't know." I have to say, the way this is going, we're going to find out soon. Just sayin'...

Report: Bowe Bergdahl left note renouncing U.S. citizenship

Bowe Bergdahl
National security adviser Susan Rice recently claimed that Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier held by the Taliban for five years, served with "honor and distinction." That report, however, seems to have been turned on its head Tuesday, when Fox News' Jennifer Griffin said Bergdahl left a note in 2009 renouncing his U.S. citizenship, Twitchy reported.

"Great reporting from @JenGriffinFNC - new report: Berghdal left behind a note renouncing American citizenship...developing," Fox News anchor Jenna Lee tweeted.

Twitchy acknowledged that more information is needed, but the report is adding fuel to the criticism being leveled at the administration. Last weekend, Bergdahl was exchanged for five Taliban detainees, two of whom are wanted by the United Nations for war crimes.

Moreover, a number of soldiers have said Bergdahl deserted his post and other service members died in efforts to rescue him.
