Krauthammer’s suggestion of ‘witness tampering’; mysterious ‘hand picked’ team for Bergdahl questioning

 The mystery over U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s condition and recovery took an unexpected turn Friday, when Fox News’ Charles Krauthammer accused the White House of possible witness tampering.

Krauthammer’s comments came after  a bizarre press conference at the Idaho State National Guard’s headquarters, where the released prisoner’s father, Bob Bergdahl, spoke to media cameras to address his son directly,  telling him his medical team in Germany “was handpicked.”

“Listen to them,” the elder Bergdahl said. “We sent them. These are handpicked people. We’re on a first-name basis with these people. They are true, they know what they’re doing, they’re here to help you, and they have our great gratitude.”

Bergdahl said he knew his son would see the message. The soldier has not yet called his family since gaining freedom a week ago.

Krauthammer on Thursday questioned the U.S. Army’s refusal to release basic information at the U.S. hospital in Germany.

The American public has received less information “from our own government than from the Taliban,” he said on Fox News’ “Special Report.” “If this goes on any longer, I think we’re going to imagine that perhaps there might be some witness tampering happening.”

At some point, he added, Bergdahl will have to explain his behavior. When asked by Fox News host Greta van Susteren to elaborate, Krauthammer said the Obama administration had a stake in the Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction” narrative.

The mystery over Bergdahl’s health has been questioned by Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Diane Feinstein, with many wondering if his controversial release was nothing more than a pretext to begin emptying the Guantanamo Bay facility.

    Come on. His father is a Muslim. He converted to Islam. The occupant of the White House is a Muslim. Do we expect to get ANY truthful information from the most corrupt administration in our nation’s history?

    Devious meanderings in the secret igloos of power.

  3. libertyluvur says:

    Since when do the parents of a deserter get to “hand pick” the team checking their son out? And how are they on a “first name basis” with military personnel in Germany? Say what???????????????????????????

    Can you say programming him with a story for a coverup? What a pile of crap.

  5. Mamatex says:

    Does anyone think it odd that he has yet to speak to his parents?

    There will be more shzt dumped onto this bizarre action than any other slimy activity Obama pulled to date! He is a sneak, corrupt liar and is in my opinion, planning a takeover of the U.S. government!

  7. Fred Doe says:

    If he is guilty of desertion and collaboration as suggested, his support should consist of a strong tree limb and a short rope.

  8. Chuck L says:

    So I guess the non-hand picked personnel over there are good enough for our REAL warriors, but not for a deserter.

  9. David Tierney says:

    The father was absolutely telling his son to listen to the hand picked team. The team that would tell Bowe Bergdahl which answers to give to the many questions that he would receive upon arriving home to the U.S. Why else would he need a team to go to the hospital which has great doctors serving and working there already. This “Team” is definitely doing some witness tampering so as to make Obama look good in the public’s eyes. More smoke and mirrors. Krauthammer hit the nail on the head with this one as he normally does.
