Six men got a death sentence looking for Bergdahl, he might get a $300,000 reward for desertion

Bowe Bergdahl deserted his unit in 2009. His desertion was celebrated by the obama administration. Standing next to Bergdahl's parents, Bergdahl's dad proudly sporting his Taliban beard obama said this:

THE PRESIDENT:  Good afternoon, everybody.  This morning, I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl and told them that after nearly five years in captivity, their son, Bowe, is coming home.

Sergeant Bergdahl has missed birthdays and holidays and the simple moments with family and friends, which all of us take for granted.  But while Bowe was gone he was never forgotten.  His parents thought about him and prayed for him every single day, as did his sister, Sky, who prayed for his safe return.

He wasn’t forgotten by his community in Idaho, or the military, which rallied to support the Bergdahls through thick and thin.  And he wasn’t forgotten by his country, because the United States of America does not ever leave our men and women in uniform behind.

Susan Rice said the deserter had served with "honor and distinction."

Our resident idiot Sen. Chris Murphy called Bergdahl a "American hero."

obama traded five high value terrorists for the deserter.

Six good men died trying to find the deserter.

Jen Psaki said "it was absolutely worth it."

Bergdahl's fellow soldiers called him a deserter back then but Marie Barf, er, I mean Harf, said they "weren't qualified" to make that judgment.

Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

Then, in a stupefying move, a judge let Bergdahl escape prison time.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his Army base in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held captive by the Taliban for five years, received no prison time for desertion or endangering troops, but was ordered by a military judge on Friday to be dishonorably discharged from the Army.

The sentencing took only minutes in a case where prosecutors had sought 14 years in a military prison.

The military judge, Col. Jeffery R. Nance of the Army, also reduced Sergeant Bergdahl’s rank to private and required him to forfeit $1,000 a month of his pay for 10 months. Trump rightly called it a "disgrace."

Now, to top off the atrocity, the Army is debating whether to reward this deserter to the tune of $300,000.

Don’t ever be a ‘team player’. That’s the moral.

IF the headline is correct, then the Obamanation pro islamic, anti American logic is still in play.

Kind of late for a rehearing in the penalties, but does not a dishonorable discharge kind of take away all the honorariums?

The payment should be distributed to the families of all the six soldiers who died in the search for Bergdahl after he “disappeared”.

The judge will probably round it up to a million or two.

I met James Hatch, one of the SEALs shot looking for Bergdahl. Needless to say, he is not a fan of him.

Why would the military put good men in harm’s way to try to find a deserter?

The lesson here, if ever ordered to go and search for some one like Bergdhal, drive half a mile out of camp, smoke for four hours, and return safely to camp.

There is a solution.
Publish Birdbrain’s address.
Track him everywhere and make locations known.
Justice will happen.

Can “civil” suits be brought against military personnel?

The military remains rotten to the core, full of Obama Generals and senior officers, not one of whom has been retired by Trump. Trump says our military is being rebuilt (it is not, sequester is still firmly in place), he says it is the strongest ever (laughable) and boasts that we are taking care of the troops (nothing has changed). His order to get rid of cross dressers was countermanded by his Sec Def and the insubordination was met by dead silence from the White House. That’s the same Gen Mattis he paraded during the campaign as the savior of the military (a joke in hindsight). The swamp won at the Pentagon, State Dept and everywhere else.

“”so where are Mumsie and Dada ???””

Not a word from them, is there? Does anyone know what his “rough upbringing” was all about? I’ve sure never run across anything like that. I’ve always had a feeling that the woman at the WH with obozo was not his mother but a stepmother. According to Wikipedia, she’s real.... Can’t say the below surprised me....

“”Bergdahl received a GED certificate through the College of Southern Idaho.[17] As an adult, Bergdahl studied and practiced fencing and martial arts before changing to ballet classes at the Sun Valley Ballet School in Ketchum, Idaho.[13][18””

Switched from martial arts to ballet!!! Of course, doesn’t everyone?
