Taliban asked Bowe Bergdahl whether Obama was gay

The Taliban soldiers who were holding American soldier Bowe Bergdahl captive wanted to know if Barack Obama was gay, he said.

Sgt Bergdahl, 29, fled his Afghanistan base in 2009 and was held by the Taliban for five years.

Now facing a court martial for desertion and misbehaviour, he has spoken to filmmaker Mark Boal, who produced The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, and the interviews are being broadcast as part of the podcast Serial.

In the latest instalment he tells of how he twice tried to escape, and how the Taliban guards were curious about America.

“They ask you, is Obama gay and sleeps with men?” he said.

    The answer might not make them happy. The evidence to my mind is he was actively homosexual until around the time he thought he was converting to Christianity from the religion in which he was raised in Indonesia. Now? We have to await Kerry’s memoirs….

        lets just say that the secret kennedy love nest is getting a different kind of visitor than it didduring clinton’s use of it.

      I thought his boyfriend got the operation and then changed his name to Michelle and they adopted two girls.

      Michelle in spite of having them surgically removed still is the only one in the family to have a pair of balls.

    If Bergdahl can prove that he had answered that question in the affirmative, I would commute his sentence.

  • andycanuck

    Gee. No comment section. I wonder why that could possibly be?

  • Martin B

    If there was justice in America, Bergdahl and Obama would be side by side in front of a firing squad.

    • mauser 98

      several soldiers died trying to find him

    Even the Taliban know.

    And the answer was? I’ll take “Who needs to get tied down with cinder blocks to keep from floating away” for $400 Alex.

    Sounds like they were fishing around for a date.

    Taliban boyz have the hots for Obasma.

    I am only interested in learning that he has been hanged or shot by a firing squad for being a traitor. Whether Obama plays bottom or top or neither doesn’t matter as far as I am concerned. That he has always been an enemy of the American people, which is well documented, remains the problem.

  • Oh Bum Aah. His name spells it out.
