This shed a little more light for me on Sgt. Bergdahl

I think he should be tried for desertion and dealt with swiftly. This is his unit talking about him, sounds pretty cut and dry to me.

    I tend to give a lot more weight to the statement of soldiers in his unit than I do to the White House talking heads. If it can be proved that the increased attacks on U.S. soldiers in the area increased because of what Bergdahl told his captors, then it could be pretty rough on him with the punishment. Anyway, the truth needs to be found out about his 'disappearance' as a POW designation gives him benefits he may not deserve.
    If the U.S. Congress was put in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in under six months.

    If you Google " bergdahl deserter " there's a lot of info about him deserting.
    Right now I'm leaning towards the fact that he's a traitor.

    His platoon mates were pretty fair towards him, seemed like they wanted to talk to him more than anything, they seemed concerned about him but at the same time were obviously not happy he walked off and deserted in their opinions, wonder if we will ever get the truth.

    This is all going to end up being another cover-up, to file away with a hundred others that our corrupted system of checks and balances will fail to get to the bottom of. The likelihood that he was, at best, a deserter, and at worst a traitor is very bad. But it pales in significance to the fact the CIC of our military has given Mullah Omar's war cabinet back to him, thumbing his nose at the 'blood and treasure' that was needed to neutralize them.

    We can surmise from this that the CIC of our military views this all as a game, and that our military personnel are just pawns to be moved around on the game board, at his whim.

    I think I've already said all I'm going to on this subject, and am summarily closing my pie hole.

    This White House only says or does anything for show and to further their Leftist Commie agenda.

    Yes, when you refer to our "CIC" I presume you are speaking of our "KING!"
