Skip to comments.Bergdahl Wasn't Only Soldier to 'Walk Off' Afghan Outposts

"At least a dozen guys just walked off their posts" in Afghanistan since 2009 for a variety of reasons, said an experienced soldier, one of four Afghan war veterans familiar with the incidents who spoke to ABC News. The other sources estimated the number could be more than a dozen.

So how many of them went looking for the enemy?
It is only a matter of time until you hear, “Nixon did it too.”
This guy is another John Kerry.
Nixon? I thought it was Bush’s fault...
They are saving that one for later.
More and more liberals just sound like little kids. “Well he did it first, he started it”. GOD! We are doomed.
Damn you Koch brothers!!!!!
Wow, that could get about 60 GITMO prisoners released to Qatar.
Oh I have no doubt others walked off too... but the President didn’t commit a crime when he tried to get them back.... IMPEACH!
We're talking about a "I hate America" dude who's looking for the Taliban.
That could be significant in and of itself.
Something happened in 2009, I recall, which may have had a devastating effect on morale and confidence in the military.
One doesnt have to be a Nostradamus to see where this Bergdahl affair is going.
1. Bergdahl will never be Court martialed for desertion. At this point, Obama has relieved every senior commander in the U.S. Army who dared to have an opinion other than his, and no officer who values his career would now dare to bring charges on Bergdahl.
2. Bergdalh will remain hospitalized until another crisis dominates the MSM news cycle, and then he will be declared 100% disabled due to PTSD as a result of his torture by the Taliban. Staff Sergeant Bergdahl will receive all his back pay and allowances, and due to his 100% PTSD disability, he will receive a Medical Retirement from the U.S. Army and live happily ever after on his tax free Staff Sergeant E-6 retirement pay.
3. We may see SSG Bergdahl again at some future Democrat fund raiser when he appears along with Jane Fonda in support of Hillary Clinton for President.
How many did this in Vietnam, Korea, or during WWII?
Bergdahl didn't do anything wrong!
However, none were captured by the enemy, either. And they didn't set off a months-long manhunt that got soldiers killed.
What is wrong with these people?
I can’t imagine why this would be relevant. A thousand thugs rob stores, and only a hundred shoot people in the robbery. Why does it matter that the other 900 robbed stores too? Of the hundred who shot people, only ten will score a kill. Why does the fact that the other 90 get much lighter sentences matter on what to do with the murderers? Of those ten, only one (at most) will shoot the wrong person, in the wrong jurisdiction, and get the death penalty. Again, I don’t see how the actions of others excuse bad actions.
As for Bergdahl, I’m not fond of deserters and traitors. I know (and have always known) that he was not the only one. I consider Obama far worse than Bergdahl. Still, if Bergdahl did desert his post in the field, he is guilty of a serious crime.
Funny that the only person named in the article is a retired military legal beagle who was thousands of miles away. I guess we’re supposed to believe him over those who were on the scene. Sure thing.
My long-ago history professor made it quite clear why Islam spread at high speed.. The message then was “Convert or DIE,” and it probably still is... in that area.
