Dr. Pipes

I urge you to watch this video and listen to the father of this creepy deserter Bowe Burgdahl where he says: Bism Allah al-Rahman al-Raheem infront of the president

I do not know what this means and is it the Stockhom syndrome by proxy

And yes we know that German prisoners of war that were kept in Siberia for many years had great difficulty speaking the German language when they were released and sent back to Germany so may be the deserter Bowe has difficulty in speaking the English language but something smells funny in this story

I hope Mr Obama changes his mind and send him back with his annoying hippie father to his beloved failed state of Afghanistan and bring back to Gitmo the 5 Talibans

Bowe Burgdahl is a despicable deserter

The basmallah is an Islamic invocation. It implies the speaker is a Muslim.
