A new report from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service indicates that former Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl had a “deliberate” plan to defect to the ‘other side’ when he abandoned his post in 2009, Lt. Col. Shaffer (Ret.) claimed.
The Blaze Shaffer told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly he has been “in contact with two individuals” who have seen the report and were “part of the investigation and various aspects of it.”
Essentially, there is clear evidence that he was ‘going over to the other side’ and he had a deliberate plan,” Shaffer said. First, one of the reports says that he was going to go off to Uzbekistan. He had made contact with the local Afghans and wanted to be moved to Uzbekistan.” “The other says that he did move out with a purpose, he had Afghan contacts and he was actually trying to offer himself up to the Taliban,” he added. “Both are very severe.”
More importantly, NCIS report was concluded before Obama agreed to release five Taliban commanders to secure his release in 2014.
