Unf'ingbelievable

Zitat
FORT BRAGG, N.C. — A military judge spared Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from prison for walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009, sentencing him on Friday to a dishonorable discharge and a reduction in rank but no time behind bars.

"Sgt. Bergdahl has looked forward to today for a long time," one of his defense attorneys, Eugene Fidell, told reporters after the sentencing.

The decision drew swift rebuke from President Donald Trump, who tweeted that it was "a complete and total disgrace to our Country and to our Military."

Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, faced up to life in prison. Defense attorneys had asked for leniency, citing the five years Bergdahl spent in Taliban captivity, criticism from Trump on the campaign trail, and his mental state.

It's not in Donald Trump's DNA to remain silent in the face of injustice, especially the politically correct injustice.

This case has stunk to high heaven right from the start with President Obama...



and the comment Bergdahl "served with distinction"????



this case has been tremendously tainted ....by the previous administration.

They should have shot the motherf*cker. In the field. When the ragheads turned him over. Ah, well. Maybe next deer season...
