Deep within the hidden recesses of the Pentagon, lurks a nondescript DoD group called the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency, the lead agency apparently, for interviewing recovered, rescued or deserter prisoners of war, and other captives.
Among their latest achievements, is realizing the fall out gathered from interviews (interrogations?) of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. A lead representative of that group,Terrance Russell, gave evidence at Bergdahl’s sentencing that the deserter/traitor provided a “gold mine” of useful intelligence about the militants who held him captive for years in Pakistan. Well, so did Mata Hari!
Russell testified that Bergdahl’s decision to abandon his post in 2009 produced an unintended consequence, by revealing the tactics used by the Taliban, their methods of imprisoning captured soldiers and, presumably, their own interview techniques. As a result, military doctrine on how to avoid capture and evade, and escape if captured, was updated.
I wonder at what point, after Bergdahl’s return in Obama’s infamous trade deal, did the “interrogations” of Bergdahl cease and the thrust change to “interviews” by Russell’s JPRA group? Because of the seriousness of Bergdahl’s offense any interrogations would be under Miranda warning as criminal. So, who decided to cease ‘Interrogations’ for criminal offenses in favor of ‘interviews’ simply to update military doctrine on escape and evasion? Has justice really been served? I ask because in my twenty-one years career as a military CE/CI/Criminal investigator, we had to be sensitive to the direction any investigation could take. In Bowe Bergdahl’s case, his desertion directly caused the deaths and injuries of other US soldiers.
Russell, whose group produces training and doctrine materials, testified that “Bergdahl’s debriefing added to lessons taught to US troops and allied militaries,” adding that Bergdahl still has intelligence that has yet to be collected that could still help troops in Afghanistan. Of course, now it’s too late. Bergdahl will be on the run hiding from the retribution that will seek him out.
I’m not faulting Terrance Russell or his information collection group for doing their jobs. His work helps keep military field doctrine up to date. It’s a necessary element of theater survival that all troops need to know. Russell’s enthusiasm for doing his job properly is also revealed when he said: “can you give him to me now? I need him now. I needed him three years ago,” “The fact I can’t get that information is wrong.” Russell testified that he had debriefed more than 120 American captives, more than any other US official….Source: Washington Post. 31Oct17 .
The defense appeared to use testimony from Russell and a former Defense Intelligence Agency analyst, to suggest that there is a national security interest in showing Bergdahl leniency. US
Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance, the presiding judge, apparently thought that Bergdahl’s potential punishment, life imprisonment, was simply too much for this army snowflake as he had already suffered enough under the Taliban.
So, the rehabilitation of Bowe Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty Oct. 16 to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy begins. However, there is another unintended consequence: the resentment remains and will fester. How does injustice match resentment? By what remaining Obama values are soldiers to be assuaged of Bergdahl’s crimes? When did mistreatment by the enemy mitigate justifiable punishment of an offenders true crimes? Don’t you wonder too?

How to Dupe a Whole Nation
Remember when Obama promised over and over in his campaign for President, that he wanted to “fundamentally change America.” He was mouthing the Marxist goal for a Socialist society. In the frenzy of having a (nearly) black candidate running for president, the organs of Marxist propaganda, the Main Street Media, shouted out the narrative that Obama’s election would bring an end to America’s divisiveness at last, and usher in an era of multiculturalism and diversity that would ease our tensions and, we would all rejoice and be happy.
In doing so, Obama shoved the long suffering Hillary Clinton right off the pages of history as America’s first female president in favor of America’s first black president. Hillary has been scheming for decades to achieve the pinnacle of power, President of the United States, and Obama snatch it away from her. Eight years later, so did Donald Trump.
Obama, in many ways, nearly succeeded because politically, he was a Marxists but, you can’t sell Marxism, it has to be imposed, slowly. He had to change this country to Socialist first. In retrospect, as casual observers, we have witnessed some of the techniques used, and are still being used, to accomplish that goal. Here are a few of them:
- Infiltrate and subvert one of the political parties in the United States. Attack the other one until it is rendered powerless by mocking indecision.
- Infiltrate the courts with judges who will rule on law, not as the Constitution demands, but as “the people” feel about the law. These decisions weaken American institutions by ruling moral and religious activities violate citizens civil rights and claiming that it’s not “fair.” This includes promoting sexual deviancy and inclusiveness as the new normals.
- Gain control of the schools. Use them to propagandize the little children to view socialism and communism as the goal for a happy future for all.
- Ease educational requirements so even the most illiterate can achieve success. Participation trophies for all.
- Gain control of teachers’ unions and put the party line in textbooks.
- Gain control of student newspapers, claim free speech is unlawful and demand censorship of competing ideas, speakers and publications.
- Use student riots (useful idiots) to foment public protests against programs or organizations that do not support the Socialist/Communist multicultural platform for change.
- Infiltrate the Media from the top down including control of book-reviews, editorial writing and policy-making positions.
- Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and Hollywood, and….
- Continue discrediting American culture by degrading its history, claiming its Constitution is out of date, approve all forms of artistic expression that glorifies multiculturalism and socialism, and censure those that do not.
We still hear the term “One World Government.” It’s the dream of a coalition of multinational companies, banks, and International financial firms. People from these organizations have long infiltrated and influenced Western governments around the world and yet, they are not victims of violent change. Why? Because they are the source of that violent change and the street rioters, student activists and even kneeling football players are all their useful idiots in their game of top down control, a “Dictatorship of the elite disguised as a dictatorship of the proletariat.”
Hillary missed the boat. She will not lead our country. She will go no further and her dark place in US history has been affirmed. Stick a fork in her, she’s done!
