It’s pretty clear he did, and it is the point because several American soldiers were killed looking for him and we just released five of the worst terrorists in Gitmo in exchange for him.

Via The Hill:

Top Obama administration officials on Sunday avoided question about whether Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by the Taliban in exchange for five detainees on Saturday, deserted the Army.

ABC News “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos asked National Security Adviser Rice whether such allegations would be “investigated.”

“If it is found that he did, will he be disciplined or has he already paid the price?” he asked.

“Certainly, anybody who has been held in those conditions in captivity for five years has paid an extraordinary price, but that is really not the point,” Rice said. “The point is he’s back. He’s going to be safely reunited with his family. He served the United States with honor and distinction.”

“We’ll have the opportunity to learn eventually what happened in the past years,” she added. “But what’s most important now is his health and well-being and that he have the opportunity to recover in peace and security and be reunited with his family which is why this is such a joyous day.”

Some critics have charged that Bergdahl, a 28-year-old Idaho native, walked away from his base in eastern Afghanistan.

What conditions? Do we have any idea where he was and how he was treated? I certainly don't wish to seem insensitive but the only videos I have seen of the guy show him well fed, in good physical condition, and a bit too cooperative.

Deserter? Traitor? POW? Hostage? Spy?



What difference does it make?

Mom and Dad Bergdahl, "proud of their son"


"In 2012, Rolling Stone magazine quoted emails Bergdahl is said to have sent to his parents that suggest he was disillusioned with America’s mission in Afghanistan, had lost faith in the U.S. Army’s mission there and was considering desertion. Bergdahl told his parents he was ‘‘ashamed to even be American.’’

This Bergdahl is a piece of shit. His whole life story is that of a counter culture kook and the fact that the military took him in the first place is a sad state of affairs. It is obvious this loser deserted and was living with these terrorists. I bet he hatched the plan to use him as a pawn in getting his buds back 5 hardened terrorists.

I wonder if Gold Star moms and dads and wives and children feel so happy to be able to reunite Bergdahl with his family.
