Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings was killed (murdered) under suspicious circumstances after he wrote a huge exposé on Bowe Bergdahl revealing that he had deserted his unit and actively sought out the Taliban – in essence, Hastings had revealed that Bergdahl was a deserter. Hastings had also revealed Bergdahl’s anti-American sentiments, publishing the shocking emails to his father that said: “I am ashamed to be an American…The horror that is America is disgusting.”
In July of 2012, Hastings published a ten-thousand word article titled America’s Last Prisoner of War in which he told of his trip to Afghanistan to speak to Bergdahl’s former platoon unit who violated their gag order to speak to Hastings anonymously. Hastings had also visited Bergdahl’s parents in Idaho, where he presumably obtained the emails. When we saw Obama fawning over Bowe Bergdahl’s mother and hugging his father last week in the White House Rose Garden, this was in direct contradiction of how he was treating them in 2012. The Obama administration had “encouraged” the Bergdahl’s to keep their mouths shut. The father, Robert Bergdahl, had gone on a very public campaign, criticizing the Obama administration for killing Afghanistan civilians, and had even said that one of the Taliban captors of his son had his child murdered by a CIA drone.
Robert Bergdahl went so far as to post a video on YouTube, where he appealed directly to this son’s captors, stating: “…We must also thank those who have cared for our son for almost two years…We have wept that God may show his beneficence, his mercy and that his peace may come upon the people of Pakistan. As-salamu alaykum [peace be upon you].”
Look at the pictures closely, witnesses, and pictures show that the car exploded before it crashed.
It’s now clear that the Obama administration actively sought to keep Robert Bergdahl and Michael Hastings’ reporting of Bowe Bergdahl quiet, as secret FBI documents now reveal.
