Emails before capture paint POW as anti-American deserter: ‘I am ashamed to be an American,’ ‘America is disgusting’

bergdahlThe release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five Taliban combatants held at Guantanamo Bay has dominated the news cycle, but so too have the controversial circumstances leading up to his disappearance.

Accounts from fellow soldiers that Bergdahl went missing of his own volition have persisted in the five years since he disappeared, and emails sent to his parents beforehand suggest he may have been contemplating desertion.

“I am ashamed to be an American,” he wrote in his final email to his parents, a 2012 Rolling Stone article reported. “And the title of U.S. soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

The email indicated Bergdahl had lost faith in the U.S. effort in Afghanistan.

“I am sorry for everything here,” he said. “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.”

CBS News reported that Bergdahl mailed home boxes containing his uniform and other belongings before he disappeared.

“The future is too good to waste on lies,” he further wrote. “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.”

The Associated Press and CBS News reported that the authenticity of the emails cannot be independently verified, and Bergdahl’s parents have not commented on them.

According to Rolling Stone, Bob Bergdahl responded to his son’s final email, complete with the subject line: “OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!”

    With his muslim biological procreators, the equally demonic jihadists, the muslim occupying the otherwise honorable office of POTUS, this little refuse-for-brains, Bergdahl, is in perfect company. The 911 arselifters carried the same sentiments. Put them all together, and more, we have a degenerate bunch of savages swimming around in their own Muhammadan sewage.

    Obama found a way to liberate his fighters from Gitmo and this dude paved it.

    • al gore

      YES, A SMOKE SCREEN TO COVER THEIR RELEASE.

  • Kenneth Clark

    Sounds like a replacement that Obama will put in place of Holder when he resigns… He already replaced one retiree with Kerry. Seems these two could pal up…

  • Arden Hale

    This is a very serious matter if it is true. Please carefully verify this. I want to see the evidence before rendering a judgment.

      This treasonous traitor sent his parent an email saying ” he is ashamed to be an American and the horror that is America is disgusting!” Then he walked away from his post! It was all detailed in a coordinated article the Rolling Stone Mag did with his parents in 2012! See: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/americas-last-prisoner-of-war-20120607?print=true

        Okay see as I said if this is true then fine something needs to be done. The Rolling Stone is a liberal source. What I don’t want to happen is the democratis getting us to chase our own tails and then look foolish. Bizpac if you’re reading this please get this confirmed.

        • Marg

          Yes, and normally the liberal sources celebrate any military person who turns on their country! Liberals hate the military and think they are nothing but murderers!

    • Marg

      Plus, he packed up his clothes and personal belongings and sent them home before he DESERTED! Told his parents in his last email to use them for whatever they wanted!

  • Valerie Villar

    So we release 5 murders so they can kill more Americans for this POS who trashes America.. Yea.. great President (not)

  • Susan Musatow

    I am praying this soldiers remarks are the result of relentless brainwashing by our enemies!

    • Barristers Inn

      that’d be true except he said them BEFORE he was captured and shortly after he arrived in Afghanistan

  • A_Government_of_Traitors

    Give him a fair trial. Then hang him. And put his POS father next to him on the gallows.

  • PatriotInk

    No worries Bergdahl. We are more ashamed that you even refer to yourself as an American. If you aided and abetted the Muslim scumbags that you went to of your own free will, you should be shot or hung.
