Since his release nine days ago, many have been wondering why Bowe Bergdahl has been so quiet! Latest reports say he hasnt even spoken with his parents since being handed over by the Taliban!
Well, according to one caller allegedly familiar with the Uniform Code of Military Justice, Bergdahls silence is due to the fact that he has already been put under arrest!
On Mondays show, Richard from Saginaw, called in and told Tom he understands that Bergdahl is expected to be charged with 11 counts all related to his mysterious 2009 disappearance.
Richard said he worked with the JAG office for eight years before recently retiring and his sources claim Bergdahl will likely face desertion charges. If found guilty, Richard says Bergdahl could face 20 years in prison!(continued)

May I be the first to call Bravo Sierra on this report?
sounds like Bowe is not playing ball ,so sorry Bowe you has to go
No, I already did in my noggin, even though I posted it for discussion...
In the REAL world, Bergdahl would get 20 Years.
In the Obama Bizarro World, Bergdahl will get promoted to General and appointed to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Hopefully they’ll soon “show you” this happened. Knowing the Obama posse, if he can’t spin it to his benefit, it never happened...
Send his Bin Laden Al Qaeda loving daddy to Leavenworth too..I have a feeling it was papa Bergdahl who set up the whole thing
0bama being the CIC will pardon him.
Or at least Sergeant Major of the Army. Yes, he has his own flag.
Perhaps worried about wiretaps...
Ditto .... not going to happen. Within the next few days we will be hearing about Bergdahl returning to the US, reuniting with his parents in the Army hospital in San Antonio, TX. A few weeks later it's back home to Hailey, ID for the homecoming parade.
I’ve been wondering how they planned to keep Bergdahl (their useful puppet) quiet. Hmmmm.
That about sums it up. I guarantee that Obama has already ordered the military to stand down on this. Can prosecute a guy that’s a hero to Progressives.
I’m sure he’s on Obama’s short list for Congressional Medal of Honor recipients.
Just what I was going to say. No way will he be convicted of anything. He will be dishonorably discharged at most and that will be it - even if he collaborated with the Taliban to kill US troops.
If they shoot Bergdahl I will commend dumBO, along with being able to read most words.
Next we’ll hear that Bowe and Hagel are secret lovers and that they are going to carry out a joint suicide pact on the pitcher’s mound at Yankee Stadium on the Fourth of July.
No way anything will happen this turd.
It would be an admission that Obama is an idiot.... so it ain’t happening.
They’d shoot the top rated 200 conservative talk radio hosts before they’d give Sergeant Bergdahl a company-grade Article 13.
Never surrendered, never reconstructed.
I might pay a dollar or two to see that.
He can only be pardoned....if he’s charged and the court finds him guilty. Having seen military justice and its speed...there’s no way a court episode will occur in 2014 unless he admits guilt and does a plea deal. So I think it’s a spring 2015 episode. This means Bergdahl remains in uniform and will be under some form of house arrest (because of his walking habits).
As for the pardon odds? It really draws negative attention to the administration and will infuriate the vet crowd (who might be equally divided as Republicans and Democrats). News media trying to turn it all into a non-event? They might try but it’s already viewed from overseas and there’s some negativity weighing heavily on this wrapping up quickly. Maybe Bergdahl signs a guilty plea to do twelve months in a prison, and the Army gives him a bad conduct discharge at the end.
I know it’s late....but ya gotta really be unlucky to get one of those! :-)
That would be awesome! Make it Pay Per View with the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior fund!
We could get Chelsea Manning to see them off...
There’s some empty spaces at Gitmo so let’s send him there. No, that would be too nice.
Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ)
ART. 13 PUNISHMENT PROHIBITED BEFORE TRIAL
No person, while being held for trial, may be subjected to punishment or penalty other than arrest or confinement upon the charges pending against him, nor shall the arrest or confinement imposed upon him be any more rigorous than the circumstances required to insure his presence, but he may be subjected to minor punishment during that period for infractions of discipline.
Then how was former President Nixon pardoned by President Ford without being charged or a trial?
...after he’s finished his tour as Chief Negotiator at the Paris Peace Talks. Bowe will be nominated by Obama to represent both sides.
John Kerry, Junior?
Dunno? Peer to peer?
I want to know why a Muslim with Al Qeada contacts was allowed constant access into classified comms systems.
Ah. I apologize.
Nope, sorry, that doesn’t play with the WH hero story. No way can they spin the exchange of 5 bad guys for one bad guy. But, then again, Benghazi was all about a video.
Or: I guess the same way that 0bama won the Peace Prize before doing anything that he didn’t get it for. Or something.
Barack Obama or Bob Bergdahl? [snort]
Wait......are you telling me that Bergdahl drove a van too?
I read up, last night, on the case of Eddie Slovik,the only
soldier to be executed during World War Two, for desertion.
I believe Bergdahl deserted, so, who knows?
No, you’re joke was funny, I just wanted to show you what it really meant. It’s the military version of a minor misdemeanor, in most cases.
Obama ain’t Ike, to say the least...
Send the “hero” story down the memory hole. Use revisionist history to play up the traitor angle; Obama always thought he was a deserter and consorted with the enemy. Court martial and execution. We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.
Is this traitor still up for a promotion this month? What kind of backlash will there be when this bit of news becomes public?
LOL.. This is a clusterflock of the highest order. Barak Obama bent over backwards and turned himself inside out to give Bob Bergdahl almost total access to the hunt and negotiations for his son..... while Bob Bergdahl was in frequent contact with Al Qeada.
Somebody wake me up.
A lawyer would recommend the deserter to do this anyhow, regardless of being or not being under arrest. The events happened long ago, and at this point JAG has only limited evidence. Any lies would be contradicting that evidence. A lawyer would tell his client to be silent. In case of specific accusations the lawyer will learn the evidence and work out a response (such as "I was hit over the head with a brick on that day, and came to my senses only on airplane home," or "I was given opium in my food and became hypnotized.")
