Bill O'Reilly and Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer reported tonight on Fox News on a 2009 NCIS report on Bowe Bergdahl's alleged attempts to go "over to the other side" :
"In 2009, the Naval Criminal Investigative Agency (NCIS) filed a report on Bergdahl's activities in Afghanistan. The NCIS, considered the military's best investigative agency, became involved in the case once Bergdahl went missing on June 30th of that year, 2009. The NCIS report cited some very disturbing information," reported O'Reilly before welcoming Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer.
"The headline is, this is what's behind the Article 99 misbehavior charge [which Bergdahl faces]," said Shaffer. "Essentially there is clear evidence that he was 'going over to the other side,' and he had a deliberate plan. There is two different strings here, Bill, that go off. First, one of the strings says he was going to go off to Uzbekistan. He had made contacts with the local Afghans and wanted to be moved to Uzbekistan and then made contact with the Russians because he wanted to talk to Russian organized crime. The other thread 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. Both are very severe. And let me be very clear. This came from the NCIS doing computer forensics on his computer, through both detailed debriefings of his platoon mates and as well as going outside the wire. And God bless NCIS, went outside the wire, tracked down the Afghans he had contact with. So those three sources."
Last week the White House released a first draft for what it ultimately intends to be a report card for the nation’s colleges. And there’s no way this effort will improve the lot of the typical college student.
For most of last week, the report on enhanced interrogations produced by Democrats on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence dominated headlines. To the extent that there was a debate at all, it was one-sided. News coverage routinely described the findings as the “Senate torture report,” often failing even to note that it was written exclusively by Democratic staff or account for the differences between techniques used as part of the CIA program and abuses committed outside of that program.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has now released its declassified review of the intelligence surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. The bottom line is this: Multiple parts of al Qaeda’s international terrorist network were involved.
Vice President Joe Biden talked up the pool reporter covering him in China today to the vice president of China. According to the pool report, Biden told the Chinese VP that "he is a very important man. Seriously he is important."
The White House has touted the Accountability Review Board (ARB) investigation of the Benghazi massacre as a review “led by two men of unimpeachable expertise and credibility that oversaw a process that was rigorous and unsparing.” In fact, the report was purposefully incomplete and willfully misleading.
A new congressional report released today highlights the Obama administration's mistake-filled response to the 9/11 Benghazi terror attacks, which left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
"An ongoing Congressional investigation across five House Committees concerning the events surrounding the September 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya has made several determinations to date, including," the executive summary for the report reads.
