Revealed: Bowe Bergdahl left letter telling comrades at Afghan base he was 'leaving to start new life and didn't want to fight for America' as Army announces he DOES face desertion charges

Sgt Bowe Bergdahl left a note for his comrades in which he said he did not want to fight for America any more and was leaving to start a new life Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff today said 'it's premature' to think there will be no charges against Bergdahl Will put Obama under more pressure after Susan Rice said he served with 'honor and distinction' and freed five Taliban commanders Former comrade who was there when Bergdahl disappeared five years ago broke a military gagging order to speak to MailOnline He said: 'As far as I’m concerned Bergdahl deserted his men and should face the firing squad' ‘Everyone looked at me like I was crazy but I was right, he had walked off’

Why in the world would you bother to rescue a deserter. Good riddance.

Susan Rice said he served with 'honor and distinction'

Once again flat out lying and why not? It's not like the RINO party will do anything about it.

I think it's clearly been established this young man was thoroughly confused and likely had mental issues.

The big glaring issue here is what our government subsequently did in the aftermath.

The current regime could give a flip about rescuing this one marine...

The intent was to release the 5 Gitmo detainees. Period.

Bergdahl was a convenient excuse.

Only if you consider being a Muslim is a mental issue....Other than that, I'm not buying the PTSD or mental instability crap. He was of sound mind, and he made his choice.

Gee, isn't that special - he was confused.
Back in the day, my drill instructor would have defined it as "not having your head and @ss wired together."
He then would have "unconfused" you - thoroughly.

True, but also they are not under the thumb (IRS, code inspection, etc.) of the Obama machine and don't need to fear repercussions.

So that your Commander in Chief could “wind up the war” while “leaving no soldier behind”.

Despicable.

Exactly what I was thinking. I was talking yesterday how the very first thing this Kenyan putz did the second he took office January 20th 2009 was try to close Gitmo. Terrorists were his #1 priority above everything else, and then later on his fanatical insistence that 911 architect Khalid Sheik Mohammed be tried as a US citizen with full Constitutional rights. Please, who are liberals trying to kid here? Why got an enemy agent as POTUS. And we 2.5 more years of this guy!

First of all, he was a soldier, not a Marine. There is a difference. The Army has soldiers and the Marine Corps has Marines. Second, when talking or writing about Marines, Marine is capitalized, as it is a proper noun. Without a doubt, you were never in the Marine Corps, but I was, and I know the difference. Please be more respectful of us in the future. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Semper Fidelis.

What we need to find out is how much info the traitor schmuck gave to the enemy. I have no doubt he was collaborating with them..I want to know how many American troops were killed because Bergdahl gave the Taliban info as to their specific locations

My bad on the first. I should have known he was Army.

That being said, I intentionally left it lower case, as a true Marine would never desert his post.

Well sure, some white twenty something solider who was acting really strange according to those in his own unit, who decided to wander off a secured post in a hostile war zone where to play happy wanderer in Afghanistan was just a perfect normal thinking American, free of any mental issues.

Makes sense.

I noted you evaded the question. You describe the tagline below quite well.

BTW slick, no one here suggested he was not guilty of anything and or did nothing wrong.

I think the problem is a lot of people believe because someone might be a cop, FBI agent or soldier, they can’t possibly have mental issues. BTW as a disclaimer for those are not capable of critical thought, this does not make them innocent of wrong doing.

One of the members of his unit (all of whom were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements) said Bergdahl was “at best a deserter, at worst a traitor.”

He was of sound mind, and he made his choice.

He might be, but then again, I understand he actually attempted to join the French Foreign Legion prior to the Army...

What rational mentally stable twenty something of sound mind would ever even consider that?
