New Shocking Details Emerge About Bowe Bergdahl’s Desertion

June 18, 2015

In a new report, it appears that Bowe Bergdahl may not have been just seeking Taliban contact… but he was actually high!

That’s right, new evidence suggests that Sgt. Bergdahl was smoking hashish with Afghan forces before he left his base.

However, this may not be a slam-dunk for a desertion charge, rather it could be the opposite!

Him being high could mean his judgement was impaired…Could this help Obama save face?


Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was apparently “high” with a small group of Afghan soldiers when they were picked up by nomads in 2009, according to a former CIA operative who was running a network of informants on the ground.

The information brings some additional detail to the otherwise murky picture of the circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance and capture, five years before the Obama administration traded five Guantanamo prisoners for Bergdahl’s freedom. The former CIA operative told Fox News Bergdahl was captured along with others, and sold to the Haqqani terrorist network in Pakistan within four days.

“The call came in and what it said was they had just broken out the message that an American soldier along with two or three Afghan soldiers had been captured or taken by a group of nomads,”Duane ‘Dewey’ Clarridge told Fox News, speaking for the first time publicly about the incident.

He added that the call said, “they were using the Pashto ‘diwana,’ which in this case meant high on hashish.”
