Reuters reporter Mark Felsenthal reports that Sgt. Bergdahl's hometown in Idaho is cancelling its planned celebration. "Bergdahl's home town in Idaho has canceled plans for a celebration, city administrator says," reports Felsenthal on Twitter.
Keep those cards and letters coming!
I guess the people in his hometown don’t want to honor a deserter. There is a major untold story with this guy, as to why he was being held, or voluntarily stayed with, the Taliban.
They should move the welcome home party to Levenworth, Kansas.
Berg’Dousch will wish he stayed with the Taliban
Hand cuffs at the airport would be in order~
The hometown is probably getting threats and are afraid to celebrate defector Bergdahl. GOOD.
His old man said the other day that he was PROUD that his son was born the same day as Lady Gaga.
These morons have taken shallow no/low information to a new NADIR!!
Now THAT is a reason to CELEBRATE!!!
Good, there is plenty out there now that shows this guy was no hero.
Sucks for the town that the whole left culture tried to spin him as a hero, but they don’t have the grip on America they once had and the truth has gotten past them. I hope this is a trend and the whole liberal progressive 100-year experiment is coming to an end in America.
Never before in US history has an administration looked so completely inept and corrupt.
Rep. Duncan Hunter, of California, asked Obama in a letter this week why other Americans still in the custody of Afghan militants were not included in the negotiation. The families say their children, though without political or military ties to the government, are prisoners just as Bergdahl was and should be recognized as "innocent tourists" and not penalized further for venturing into dangerous territory.*****naïve is too sane a term for some folks.
"They really and truly believed that if people were loved and treated with respect that that would be given back to them in kind," said Linda Boyle, Boyle's mother. "So as odd it as it may seem to us that they were there, they truly believed with all their heart that if they treated people properly, they would be treated properly."
Relatives describe the couple, who wed in 2011 after meeting online, as well-intentioned but naive adventure seekers.
Obama plans crumble
Probably at the request of the White House. Not great optics to have Jihad Joe riding in a convertible waving to the crowd that’s filled with super unhappy vets!
Report: Bergdahl Hometown Cancels Celebration
Oh, they wanted to honor him alright. The problem they had was that the public was watching, and didn't approve. The heat got to them.
No matter what anyone says, we will stand by our hometown her.....wait, no we won’t.
Going to be kind of tough to push this to the Friday afternoon news dump!
