Missing U.S. Soldier Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Captured in Afghanistan in June 2009 and Held Captive by Taliban-aligned Haqqani Network in Pakistan Seen Alive in Recently Dated VIDEO
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been missing since June of 2009 when he was captured and taken prisoner by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Pakistan. Bergdahl was 23 years old when he was captured after finishing a guard shift at a combat outpost in southeastern Paktika province. Now a VIDEO has surfaced obtained by the US military that is dated December 2013 that shows American prisoner of war, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
The U.S. military has obtained new video apparently made by those holding the lone American prisoner of war, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
A U.S. military official told CNN the clip shows the Wood Valley, Idaho, native in diminished health from the effects of close to five years in captivity.
He was seized in Afghanistan in June 2009 and is believed held by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Pakistan, the official said.
The so-called proof-of-life video, the first of him in nearly three years, has a reference to December 14, 2013.
Stars & Stripes – DOD has new video of US soldier held captive since 2009.
The so-called “proof of life” video of Bergdahl, 27, appears to have been made recently, said the official, who would not specify exactly when the material was received or how it was obtained.
“Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been gone far too long, and we continue to call for and work toward his safe and immediate release,” said Cmdr. Elissa J. Smith. “We cannot discuss all the details of our efforts, but there should be no doubt that on a daily basis — using our military, intelligence and diplomatic tools — we try to see Sgt. Bergdahl returned home safely. Our hearts are with the Bergdahl family.”

BREAKING: Reuters is reporting that a United States citizen working at the international school in Benghazi, Libya has been shot and killed. FOX News is reporting that medical and security sources told Reuters that the man was targeted by gunmen as he was exercising. No one has yet taken responsibility for the cowardly act.
Gunmen have killed a U.S. citizen working at an international school in the Libyan city of Benghazi, medical and security sources said on Thursday.
The attackers shot the American man, who was an instructor or teacher at the Benghazi school, while he exercised in the morning, the sources said.
After the murders of four Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, including the death of US Ambassador Chris Stevens has literally gone unpunished by the Obama administration, terrorists in Benghazi must think it is open season on Americans. There has been no comment yet from the Obama administration as to whether an anti-Muslim tape was responsible for the shooting.
This is what happens when you do not respond to terrorist acts in kind. How have the deaths of Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Amb. Chris Stevens not been investigated and justice not been served?

Terrorist Suicide Bomb Kills Christians at Pakistan Church: 60 People Killed & More than 120 Injured Including Women and Children Following Twin Suicide Bomb Blasts in Qissa Khawani Bazaar of Peshawar
Because Islam is a religion of Peace …
So where is the outrage that Christan are being killed in Muslim countries? The LA Times is reporting that a pair of suicide bombers detonated their explosives outside a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing over 60 people in the deadliest-ever attack on the country’s Christian minority. The NY Times is reporting 75 people are dead as the cowardly suicide bombers detonated their bombs as as worshipers left the All Saints Church in the old quarter of the regional capital, Peshawar.
The bombing in Peshawar, which wounded 120 people, underlines the threat posed by Islamic extremists as the government seeks a peace deal with domestic Taliban militants. It will likely intensify criticism from those who believe that negotiating peace with militants is a mistake.
The blasts killed more than 60 people and wounded 120, said Arshad Javed, top health official at the hospital in Peshawar where the victims were being treated. The dead included several women and children, said Sher Ali Khan, another doctor at the hospital.
The number of casualties was so high that the hospital was running out of caskets for the dead and beds for the wounded, said Mian Iftikhar Hussain, a former information minister of surrounding Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province who was on the scene.
“What have we done wrong to these people’” asked one of the wounded, John Tariq, referring to the attackers. “Why are we being killed?”
PESHAWAR: At least 60 people were killed and more than 120 including women and children were injured in twin suicide blasts in Qissa Khawani bazaar of Peshawar, Geo News reported.
Sources said suicide bombers blew themselves up outside Kohati gate near the Pakistan Church.
Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) have cordoned off the area after the blast.
Chief Executive Leady Reading Hospital (LRH) has confirmed killing of 56 people in the blasts.
Emergency has been declared in the LRH.
The eyewitnesses said the worshipers were leaving the Church when the blast occurred. More than 500 people were present in the Church at the time of suicide attack.
Terrorist Nidal Hasan Convicted Unanimously on all 13 counts of Murder & 32 Counts of Attempted Murder in the Fort Hood Shooting Rampage
Nidal Hassan guilty on all counts!!!
A military jury convicted the Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan of 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder in the Ft. Hood terrorist shooting rampage that took place November 5, 2009. The jurors deliberated less than seven hours over two days before unanimously finding Hasan guilty of the premeditated murder counts. Hasan now faces the possibility of the death penalty as punishment for his crimes. Hassan represented himself and basically did not put on any real defense during the trial and provided no closing argument. This was a terrorist act from the outset; however, the Obama administration has categorized it as work place violence. Yea, right.
The question that needs to be asked is not whether Hassan is guilty or whether he should burn in hell, but instead, how in the world was this guy allowed to be a psychiatrist in the US Army? Just another example of political correctness kills.
A military jury on Friday convicted Army Maj. Nidal Hasan of 13 counts of murder and 32 counts of attempted murder in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, making it possible for the death penalty to be considered as a punishment.
The jurors deliberated less than seven hours over two days before finding Hasan guilty on all charges in connection with the November 5, 2009, shootings at a deployment process center.
The Army psychiatrist admitted to targeting soldiers he was set to deploy with to Afghanistan, saying previously he wanted to protect the Taliban and its leaders from the U.S. military.
Under the rules of a military court-martial, the jury must return a unanimous verdict of premeditated murder for the death penalty to be considered as a punishment option. The jury is not required to tell the court whether they reached a unanimous verdict on the attempted murder charges.
As the Jawa Report asks, can we execute Hassan now? Lets not keep Lucifer waiting.
UNBELIEVABLE … MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry Compares Gitmo Terrorist Inmates to American Slaves, HUH?
Liberalism really is a mental disease …
MSLSD MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry actually compared the GITMO terrorist inmates to American slaves. Wow, just wow. What is wrong with this network? Not only does the race baiting continue for the Far Left, but the foolish and ignorant comment was a complete insult to anyone who was a slave in America and their memories. Can you imagine if some one on Fox News made such a comment? Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP would be calling for a boycott and their firing. So let’s under stand the mentality of the LEFT toward former slaves in America. The LEFT is comparing radical Islamist Jihadists whose sworn oath to Allah is to kill Americans and our way of life and “infidels” who has a different belief from them, who are being detained in GITMO, to black slaves who were bought and sold into slavery and brought to America against their will. Seriously? I’m sorry, I get the two confused all the time, NOT!
All blacks in America should be wringing the phones and hammering the emails of MSNBC in their collective outrage of comparing slaves to terrorist.
From The Weekly Standard:
“This is the time to reaffirm our Americanness,” said Harris-Perry. “I also appreciate that the hunger strikers are not trying to die. They’re trying to generate autonomy in the context of something that strips their humanity–something we certainly know about from the experience of American slavery. And that the language of before I would be a slave, I’d be buried in my grave and go home to my Lord and be free. Just that idea of creating human freedom within the context of horrible human conditions.”
Dispicable … NAACP Leader Julian Bond Says IRS Was Legitimate to Target “Overtly Racist” Tea Party … the “Taliban Wing of American Politics”
Unbelievable comments from the NAACP … Welcome to Obama’s Hope and Change.
Watch the VIDEO below and hear NAACP Chair Emeritus Julian Bond’s outrageous, ignorant and bigoted comments. Bond said that it was legitimate for the IRS to target the “overtly racist” Tea Party since they are the “Taliban wing of American politics.” UNREAL. Bond stated, “I don’t think there’s a double standard at all,” Bond said. “I think it’s entirely legitimate to look at the tea party.” In typical liberal fashion though, Bond had a double standard when he said it was different when the NAACP was investigated by the IRS. Overtly racist? Because individuals disagree with a presidents polices and agenda, that makes them racist? Taliban wing? And we wonder why things have become so polarized in America? Barack Obama was supposed to bridge the divide between black and white when elected. All he has done is increase the divide. What a sad state of affairs.
It is not just Jay Carney who has lost all credibility under Barack Obama, add the NAACP to the list. It is truly sad that an organization that was founded on protecting the Civil Rights of individuals, is more worried about the “color of one’s skin” when it comes to a standard of how the IRS should target rather than “the content of one’s character”.
Julian Bond, chairman of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, joined anchor Thomas Roberts on MSNBC on Tuesday where he said that he did not believe the federal government was complicit in any wrongdoing given the news that the Internal Revenue Service singled out conservative groups for added scrutiny. He said that it is right of the government to look into the Tea Party, which he called “overtly racist” and the “Taliban wing of American politics.”

Six Americans Killed in Afghanistan … 3 U.S. Military Service Members, 2 U.S. Civilians and a Doctor
Six American troops and civilians and an Afghan doctor were killed in attacks on Saturday in southern and eastern Afghanistan. The attacks and deaths took place on the same day that U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived in Afghanistan for a visit aimed to assess the level of training that American troops can provide to Afghan security forces after international combat forces complete their withdrawal at the end of 2014. One would say a lot, wouldn’t they? The terrorists are just waiting out the Obama’s troop withdrawal and then at that point Afghanistan will become an “Islamist” killing field.
Six American troops and civilians and an Afghan doctor were killed in attacks on Saturday in southern and eastern Afghanistan as the U.S. military’s top officer began a weekend visit to the country, officials said.
In the south, three U.S. service members, two U.S. civilians and the doctor were killed when a suicide bomber detonated a car full of explosives just as a convoy with the international military coalition drove past another convoy of vehicles carrying the governor of Zabul province.
Another American civilian was killed in an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan, the U.S. military said in a statement. [...]
Those killed in Zabul province included three members of the military and two U.S. civilians, including at least one employee with the U.S. State Department, said a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of a formal announcement. Several other Americans and Afghans, possibly as many as nine, were wounded, the official said.
The U.S. Embassy in Kabul confirmed that Americans were involved in an attack in Qalat, the capital of Zabul province. Zabul is next to Kandahar, the birthplace of the Taliban, and shares a volatile border with Pakistan.
Political Correctness: AP Stylebook Revises Definition of ‘Islamist’ as AP Caves PC Pressures … Term “Islamist,” Will No Longer Be Used To Describe “Islamic Fighters, Militants, Extremists Or Radicals”
If it looks like an Islamist, walks like an Islamist and talks like an Islamist, geuess what AP … It’s an Islamist.
Remember when the journalist news used to be about reporting the news and not about worrying whether someone felt uncomfortable? Now the AP wants to redefine the enemy of the United States. How about a new definition for the AP … gutless, politically correct cowards?
This is yet another example why many have no trust or respect in the MSM. Just days after dropping “illegal immigrant” from its influential stylebook, the Associated Press has revised its definition of another politically charged term, Islamist. The AP stated that it will no longer use the term ”Islamist” to describe an Islamic fighters, militants, extremists or radicals. Instead, the AP now defines an ”Islamist” as an “advocate or supporter of a political movement that favors reordering government and society in accordance with laws prescribed by Islam. Of course this was a result of the cowards at AP succumbing to the pressures of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Yup, here is one of the Islamists that the AP refuses to define as an Islamic Fighters, Militants, Extremists Or Radicals
Following on the heels of the Tuesday decision by The Associated Press to discontinue use of the term “illegal immigrant,” the news agency on Thursday revised its stylebook entry for another politically charged term. The term “Islamist,” the AP clarified in a Thursday afternoon alert to online stylebook subscribers, should not be used as “a synonym for Islamic fighters, militants, extremists or radicals.”
“Islamist” is frequently used as a label for conservative Islamic political movements, particularly Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, the group’s Palestinian offshoot. It generally carries a negative connotation.
The AP first added the term to its stylebook in 2012. The definition initially read:
Supporter of government in accord with the laws of Islam. Those who view the Quran as a political model encompass a wide range of Muslims, from mainstream politicians to militants known as jihadi.
Just how gutless and politically correct has the AP become? These folks are more worried about if they upset terrorists than they are in correctly and accurately reporting the news. If these jokers were around in the 1940′s I am guessing that they would have provided cute and flowery definitions for the term Nazi’s and fascists.
Sorry, but we will continue to use the term “Islamist” as it is meant to be and for effect we will add the term radical jihad Islamist fascist for effect.

Afghanistan Insider Attack … Afghan Police Officer kills 2 U.S. Soldiers and 3 Afghan Policemen in Wardak Province
Another insider attack in Afghanistan has taken the lives of two US soldiers. According to reports, an Afghan police officer opened fire inside a police station killing two US soldiers and three Afghan policemen. The insider attack took place in the Wardak province, which comes just days after a deadline given by Afghans for U.S. special forces to withdraw from the province. I guess this must be more of the conspiratorial plot of the United States colluding with the Taliban as per the self serving Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s?
Officials say an Afghan police officer opened fire inside a police station while U.S. forces were visiting, sparking a firefight that killed two U.S. troops and three Afghan policemen.
Monday’s incident in Wardak province appears to be the latest in a series of insider attacks against coalition and Afghan forces. It comes a day after a deadline given by Afghans for U.S. special forces to withdraw from the province.
Deputy provincial Police Chief Abdul Razaq Koraishi says three Afghan officers were killed. A coalition military official says two U.S. forces were killed. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to disclose information pending an official statement.
Very interesting and must read article in the Washington Post where Eliot Cohen, a distinguished military historian and scholar of civilian-military relations, and foreign policy adviser to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney asks the important Ronald Reagan slightly modified question, Are you safer now than you were four years ago?
Has President Obama been a competent steward of U.S. national security?
Set aside the opening follies of this administration, such as the cringe-inducing “reset” button given to Russia’s foreign minister that yielded no cooperation but managed to produce anti-American venom from Vladimir Putin and the harassment of our ambassador to Moscow by thugs in Putin’s youth movement.
Set aside the hypocrisy of the Obama team’s scorn at former governor Mitt Romney’s lack of foreign policy experience, given that its own candidate, during his two years in the Senate prior to his presidential campaign, managed to produce one large goof: contemptuous certainty that the surge of U.S. troops to Iraq in 2007 would fail (VIDEO).
Set aside even the unseemliness of the president blaming America’s failures abroad on the George W. Bush administration while claiming credit for operations whose foundations were laid during the Bush presidency.
Disregard all this, and the answer remains no.
Yes, Obama ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden. So would any president who had him in American gun sights — imagine the furor if any commander in chief were to refrain from giving that order. But has Obama ended our war with Islamist extremists?
Read the entire article, quite enlightening and shows Obama for what he really is when it comes to foreign policy, a novice at best. Barack Obama’s greatest foreign policy accomplishments are those that he “inherited” from GWB. Its safe to say that Obama just adopted W’s drone attacks. The reason why BO does more is because he does not have the MSM claiming that innocent women and children are killed in missile attacks like W was at every strike. Some how the MSM never mentions that now. What a coincidence. Also, the tips that began the get Bin Laden efforts were started under W and dare I say, waterboarding.
