As much of the United States is celebrating the return of a POW gone for 5 years, despite the cost, it seems that the current administration isn’t revealing the entire picture. Even though he’s been dubbed a hero, several emails have recently been released showing that Bowe Bergdahl despised America.
Many people who knew Bowe before he enlisted state that he joined the Army from a humanitarian standpoint – in order to travel the world, experience different cultures and help whomever he could. Upon arriving for his tour in Afghanistan however, several emails were written to his mother and father back home demonstrating something quite disturbing.
In an unauthenticated email, Bergdahl wrote, “The future is too good to waste on lies and life is way too short to care for the damnation of others as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong.”
Just days before being captured he wrote, “These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.” Bergdahl topped off his cute little email saying, “I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of U.S. soldier is just the lie of fools. I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”
Shockingly his father was said to have respond by writing back, “’OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!”
As whispers of desertion continue to consolidate into a louder, trembling voice, many Americans are beginning to wondering if the sacrifice we made for Bergdahl was worth it. Furthermore, citizens are questioning the current administration’s decision to negotiate with terrorists.
What do you guys think – after all, he is American and we should go through any lengths to bring him home, right? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments below.
