The Last American POW: Four Years’ Imprisonment In AFGHANISTAN?!?

A few days ago we had the pleasure of interviewing Earl Hayes, aka ‘LeeBirdification Hoot-Hoot’ of HOOT Radio– Honoring Our Outstanding Troops on the Freedom Finders internet radio show I’m privileged to co-host. The evening’s discussion centered on the story of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, an American Army soldier captured in Afghanistan in 2009.

This story got under my skin; not only has Bowe Bergdahl had his life hugely distorted by this captivity, but he’s been in this situation for the same amount of time I’ve been shut up in the house, four years. Now I certainly wouldn’t presume to compare my situation with his, but again we see someone who’s thus far lost four years of his life, something I do have a bit more experience with than the average person, and this story really resonated with me.

I’ll wager that Bergdahl is like so many of my friends at this point, used as part of the monolithic enforcement arm of our authoritarian government that’s directed by a relatively tiny cabal of banksters and corporate insiders when he likely signed up simply to try to do positive things for America. I don’t know his mind, but I’ll surmise that if he’s been apprised of the facts he’s feeling defrauded…and now abandoned in captivity…by these creeps.

During the interview it was made clear that Bergdahl’s Taliban captors are eager to release Bowe Bergdahl themselves, but surprise, surprise: the American government is the main obstacle in this. He’s become another strategic piece on the chessboard, something I have (fortunately) no experience with but imagine to be a dismal place to find oneself.

I’ve said it before, I don’t waste time bemoaning unfair situations, after all life is indeed unfair. Unjust is another matter, particularly when it’s needlessly so. I know I haven’t found much to be positive about regarding my own abandonment, and I just can’t imagine anyone coming away from an examination of Bowe’s situation feeling good.

I think Lee Birdification’s suggestion of making a lot of very public noise is a sound one and would encourage folks to call their representatives’ office(s) to let them know unambiguously that this situation just cannot stand. For myself, this is another of the many subjects I plan to discuss in person with my congressman and senators once this fundraiser succeeds, freeing me to get back to the world. You can help me do this by donating whatever you can spare here to help me achieve this goal. I’m seriously chafing at the bit to finish being a mendicant, get out and get the heck to work.

You might visit one of the provided links here as well if you’re inclined to do more right now yourself. The ongoing captivity of Bowe Bergdahl is yet another violation of what used to be a first principle for Americans…never leave a countryman behind.

To do so is unacceptable.

About Glenn Horowitz

I'm a 20 year civil courier pilot, retired by multiple sclerosis. From summer of 2011 until December 2013 my efforts went mostly to my first blog, Get Glenn Mobile, to raise the funds needed to convert my Honda Element for wheelchair access and end my virtual housebound confinement. This was realized just after Christmas 2013 when I was able to acquire a superb X-WAV Element, already modified for my use. Though the original goal wasn't met, what was raised, plus my Honda, plus the proceeds of the sale from my mother's car were enough to make it happen. It's an amazing story in itself! Now, after my release from homebound prison, I can augment the journalistic work I'm doing for the American Daily Herald by getting out in public, talking with people, perhaps even getting some media attention to explain why someone as disabled as I am knows these unfunded entitlement programs like Social Security and its 'disability insurance' are bogus and do more harm than good, and in fact why the whole welfare/warfare state is contrived to keep the gravy train rolling for those who benefit while they drain our resources and eat out our substance. Why 'public education' is really public INDOCTRINATION that's become a meat grinder destroying our youth and our future. Why the fiat currency foisted on us by the Federal Reserve for a hundred years has destroyed the dollar and will without doubt cause its collapse. On and on the list goes, and I want to talk with the world about these vital matters.

  1. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, but I by no
    means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s beautiful price enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
