Walid Shoebat has had a look at Bob Bergdahl’s playlist and it’s ugly and uglier. It’s a mix of Islamism videos and moonbat materials.
Bergdahl favorited Anwar Al-Awlaki’s “Why The World Hates America” uploaded by HayaAlalJihad. He also subscribed to more Westernized Islamic propaganda channels like Deen and Journeyman Pictures.
Some of his channels were about learning Arabic. Others were full of technical Islamic material unlikely to be of any interest or relevance to non-Muslims. He appeared to be drawn in particular to Salafist materials which would match his beard.
Then he subscribed to leftist outlets like Brave New Films and to Chomsky videos, making it clear what his domestic politics are.
Like a lot of anti-American types, Bergdahl appeared to be fond of Putin’s RT, Michael Scheuer, Ron Paul and Glenn Greenwald.
Bergdahl favorited an RT propaganda video, “Americans don’t share global domination policies of their leaders”
He favorited a video called, “Drone Survivors Speak at Congressional Briefing Called by Rep. Grayson”.
Other videos he favorited included “Afghanistan veterans commit suicide from a good conscience”, “The real terrorist was me US Soldier” and “KILL EVERYBODY: American soldier exposes US policy in Iraq”.
He subscribed to “TruthaboutTaliban” whose video states “We can see how does Taliban treats the captive US soldier.After you see this video,You must question yourself …Are Taliban the real terrorists ? or the US.”
Commenting on an anti-war video, he posted, “I was the 64th person to view this discussion. J Lo had 34 million hits! Now we know why the American people have allowed the Afg War to continue for over 10 years.”
Much of this goes beyond the need to play up to the Taliban as some have suggested. These things tell us something of Bob Bergdahl’s politics, his mindset and perhaps even his religion.
