A Twitter posting by the father of the serviceman released from Taliban captivity  Saturday in exchange for five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay is raising deep questions about what exactly the Obama administration did to get Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl out of Afghanistan.

Here’s the tweet, which Robert Bergdahl posted May 28 – before his son’s release – and deleted Saturday, according to Twitchy.com.

Whatever else it might be, “God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, ameen!” doesn’t sound like a rousing call to patriotism.

ABalkhi is the Twitter handle of Abdulqahar Balkhi, a Taliban spokesman.

It’s important to remember the elder Bergdahl posted the message while his son was still in captivity and might have been willing to say anything while talking to the sergeant’s captors. It’s also  unclear whether the tweet was intended to be public.

But the contents of the posting are making a lot of people suspicious.

The circumstances of Bergdahl’s capture are already odd — no one knows why he left that Army base five years ago and a USA story published Saturday shows Bergdahl is thought by many in the military to have either deserted or gone AWOL.

Also, the release of Guantanamo Bay terrorists in exchange for him violates a longstanding U.S. policy of not negotiating — at least publicly — with terrorist organizations. It also violated U.S. law that requires Congress to receive 30 days’ notice before Gitmo prisoners are released, according to top Republicans on the House and Senate armed services committees.

And, let’s face it, the Obama administration is widely distrusted particularly when it comes to its handling of terrorism — the shadows of Benghazi are long. Twitter postings reacting to the elder Bergdahl’s deleted post reflected that.

Here’s a sample, via Twitchy.

(Note: Some strong language at the end.)

And here’s one that pretty well sums up how Americans might feel about the whole situation.

That’s tough to beat.

    Am happy to share this testimony about the great man called Dr Samura. I am Sandra from California , my husband had an affair with another lady for almost 10 years now and it was the worse thing that ever happened to our marriage. I was forced to take a good hard look at MY behavior in the marriage and I came to realize that I was partly to blame for his affair. I had become emotionally unavailable to him and when something good or bad happened in my life, I called my friends instead of my husband. I had stopped allowing him to love me and to support me and he felt as if I no longer needed him. As a musician on the road with his band, it became to much temptation for him when a girl he met on road became interested in him and was more than available for him emotionally and physically. Once I really started to examine my behavior, I realized that I had as much work to do as he did. When going through all theses problem i came across Dr Samura then i explained things to him. after explanation to him, he told me what to do by bringing back my husband so i decided to follow the rules which he gave to me. Now, My husband cut all tires with his other woman and became committed to working on our marriage to save it. Today, we have a beautiful son, another on the way in a couple weeks, we own our home, and have a fuller, happier life than we ever imagined. After i came across the testimony made by Julie about how this man of spirit brought back her ex husband for more than ten years in marriage. so my if you are in such pain and you don’t no what to do you can contact this great man for help i promise you all he will help you the way he helped me so via [email protected] or call him +2348103508204 or visit his website http://samuratellerspell.webs.com/
