A US soldier who has been released after nearly five years in captivity by the Taliban in Afghanistan needs time to ''decompress'', his parents have told a news conference.
Jani and Bob Bergdahl also said they had not yet spoken to their son, Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, 28, who was handed to US forces on Saturday in exchange for five Guantanamo Bay detainees.
Jani Bergdahl began by reading a letter to her son.

This father is a Taliban-loving blowhard. I also don’t think he’s real bright.
He’s already “decompressed.”
He’s pissed on the United States for more than five years; that should be sufficient “decompression” for anyone.
youre right and i bet that he is butt-up-in-the-air five times a day jabbering to allah-in-wonderland.
Fort Leavenworth, KS would be a perfect setting for this.
yep. kodiak island wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
We need to stay on this. 6 brave soldiers are dead thanks to the deserter.
Since the elections are coming up we need to write our reps and demand justice.
Your son needs to be lined up against a wall and executed by firing squad. He deserted his unit in a time of war.
Article 85 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice:
(c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.
THE ONLY SETTING FOR THIS! ! ! ! ! ! !
I stand corrected we were at war and the UCMJ demands the firing squad.
you’re right. please keep reminding people
i suggested kodiak island where there are several hundred big hungry bears. save the ammo
You’re spot on. The way I expressed it to my wife was “this situation is more squirrely than a bag full of a$$holes.” Those forum posters advocating Ft. Leavenworth and a firing squad are also right on the mark but it’s unrealistic to expect the current Occupant to allow such against his co-religionist.
What they mean is he needs time to get his story straight, and I'm sure Obama's media propaganda section is giving him plenty of help with that.
I also think this incredibly stupid narcissist has managed to turn half of America against his son. Way to go, hippie Talibani!
Sounds like he needs a date.
He should “decompress” for 20 years in a federal prison!
> yep. kodiak island wouldnt be a bad idea either.
Slathered in bacon at that.
This whole scenario is a reminder of the TV show, Homeland. You just can’t make this crap up.

He will probably be knighted and given the title of Saint since he converted to Islam.
Actually, the Democrats are trying to decide which congressional seat he’s going to run for..
It’s starting to come out. This soldiers buddies are saying that he was fleeing the battlefield and is a traitor.
> Actually, the Democrats are trying to decide which congressional seat hes going to run for..
Or put him in charge ofthe VA now that there’s an opening .../s
Well, the writers of Homeland did! Now all we need is a female CIA operative to fall in love with this creep.
There, fixed it.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
* for promotion to Sergeant, a soldier must do at least three things...attend Primary Leadership Development Course (PLDC), successfully appear before a promotion board, and attain enough promotion points (given for awards, schools attended, etc.). As a PFC, Bergdahl would not have done the first two, and it's doubtful he earned the points before he deserted. His two promotions were PR stunts, designed to make low-information types think this administration actually cares about our servicemen and women.

Title -— US soldier Bob Bergdahl: ‘Our son needs time to decompress’.
The title should read: ‘Our son needs time to get his story straight’.
My guess is this story was timed.to get the leaking of.the CIA station chief in Afghanistan out.of.the news.
If that gets too much time it will be discovered that the plame fiasco.was a whole lot of lies cooked up by democrats. Can’t have that.
Their son needs time to “de-compose”, not “de-compress”
Note to DAD: Clean the darn house before letting a film crew into it....Yuck.
Reading a few of the comments on the bottom my guess is that some are too stupid to realize the circumstances behind this kids capture.
The comments afterwards were the usual sick blend of anti-American hatred and pro-Jihadi exuberance. P.S.: I was listening to talk radio this morning and they were going on about how Obama kept touching the hippie chick wife during the press conference. I didn't see that particular conference - anyone see it?
‘Our son needs time to decompress and grow a beard and pick out a muslim mosque’
Does Bergdahl have a the smoking hot long-suffering wife waiting for him? I Doubt it!
Why does obama do this now? Who benefits politically, specifically at this moment, from this lopsided and ridiculous exchange?
And maybe he’ll shack up with Johnny Jihad when he gets out of prison in a few years!
The whole thing irritated me. :)
Why hasn’t he shaved off his muzzie beard? Hmmm
“lopsided and ridiculous exchange”....sure
how about unlawful and treasonous ?
Fair enough, throw him out the hatch at 50,000 feet.
