Idaho Mayor Doesn't Want Bergdahl Pre-Judged Until All Facts Are In. No Pre-Praise, Too?
6/3/2014 | Laissez-faire Capitalist

I mean, we shouldn't have a "rush to judgment" and pre-praise him...right?

Hailey, Idaho Mayor, Fritz Haemmerle released a written statement Monday urging people not to judge Bowe Bergdahl until all the facts are in, given that there are opposing sides to this issue.

Does that also mean that since there are opposing sides that Bergdahl shouldn't be pre-praised either until all the facts are in?

But how can all of the facts come in if Obama is going to hamper an investigation from occuring?

Wanna know Chuck Hagel's secret recipe for turning terrorists (Taliban) into non-terrorists?

Have a third party become involved in negotiations and act as the intermediary. I guess neither pre-judging nor pre-praising can occur then...

It is unknown if this secret recipe will work on all terrorists though. Perhaps whim plays into this as well. /s

Looks like this is going to have the proverbial lock-box dropped on the entirety of this. King Obama has spoken.

Those who wave the flag for this dissenter, just because Obama calls him a hero, are dishonoring all the true heroes who have died defending freedom, many with no recognition. There is nothing honorable about this deserter’s service.

A parade and a court martial at the same time. America: what a country!

It doesn’t look like Zero wants the kind of investigation (via the military or otherwise) that could lead to a court martial.

And so, we can’t pre-judge Bergdahl, but he can be pre-praised, though. Apparently...

America: what a country!?

Having a third party act as an intermediary: does it stop the pre-praising? Apparently not...

The CiC will never let a court martial happen.

There are exactly two counties in ID that voted for obama: Latah (home of U. of ID) and Blaine (home of Hailey and Sun Valley). Blaine Co. is libtard central in ID.

FWIW, Hailey is the seat of Blaine County, one of only two counties in the entire state of Idaho to vote for ObaMao in 2008 and 2012.

To the south and west of Hailey are traditional small towns, farms, ranches and Mormon settlements as conservative as the rest of the state.

To the north are the rich ski resorts of Sun Valley, including one of John F. Kerry's mansions. These towns are filled with yuppies, Hollywood environmentalists, government workers and political types attracted by the cool refreshing summers and arguably the best skiing in the United States, albeit more remote than the more popular ski bum hangouts in Vermont, and around Denver and Park City.

One need only take one look at his hometown to see that it is uber-liberal.

Did he voluntarily go AWOL to join the Taliban or not?

That’s all the UCMJ would normally ask.

If he said no, and said sarcastically that he just decided that he had enough of the U.S. military and decided to go on a sightseeing tour of Afghanistan, wouldn't that still get him court-martialed?

The mayors of all the towns that buried the soldiers who died looking for this town’s deserter need to send the mayor of Hailey a message.

Yes. Under normal circumstances.

You don’t just get to take the day off for fun and relaxation without authorization.

That was my point in using the most ridiculous and outlandish - to make a point.

If he is investigated and eventually put under oath, I don’t see how he could evade being put in jail for some time... at the very least.

They would call any witnesses (still alive I hope) much like a normal trial.

If he were convicted and Obama overturned it ......

I haven’t been surprised by much that has gone on since 2008.

There’s always a new surprise; nearly ever day.

Apparently so ... but woe onto those that do so. Because there will be a judgement.

Isaiah 5:20-24 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

So the mayor won’t postpone it? Ask him if he’d wait until the guilty party gets promoted to Sgt. and can be present at the celebration.

For perspective. There are two counties in Idaho that generally go democrat blue on election day (Blaine County - Ketchum/Sun Valley, and Latah County - University of Idaho at Moscow). Hailey, Idaho, located very close to Ketchum/Sun Valley, and is in Blaine County.

Time for Jessica Lynch to make a ‘whistle stop’ tour and remind the American people what happens when politicians, perfumed prince Military types and reporters try to construct a ‘hero’.

If it hadn’t been for Lynch setting the record straight (after close talks with her family and other Veterans that lived in her ‘hollow’) she would have more ribbons and awards than Audie Murphy and John Bastilone combined.

Even her ‘battle mates’ were reluctant to tell the ‘truth’ until she came out...those that had hinted that something may be afoot got chastised and shot down in a hurry.

Of course the idiots would rather listen to Sandra Fluke.
