Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant who spent five years as a captive in Afghanistan before being traded for five high-profile Taliban leaders, is coming back to the United States sometime late tonight or early tomorrow morning, Fox News has learned.

Bergdahl, who has been undergoing unspecified treatment at a U.S. facility in Landstuhl, Germany, since he was turned over to the U.S. on May 31, will be flown to Brook Army Medical Center, at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio. It is not known how long he will remain there or if and when he will be questioned about the circumstances behind his apparently voluntary departure from an Army base in Afghanistan in 2009....

Does anyone know whether he has talked to his family yet? It could be a bit awkward for him to go “home” if they are not on speaking terms.

I expect he’ll be branded as crazy from PTSD, get retired with a disability pension for the rest of his life. He’ll probably get an honorable discharge, be on his way.

“he will be questioned about the circumstances behind his apparently voluntary departure”

So the word “DESERTION” is now not politically correct?

Provide him with copy ofJuly 2012 Rolling Stone article by Michael Hastings. Westernjournalism.com has good summary. Hastings possibly lost his life as a result of this story. Tragic.

Based on the statements of fellow soldiers he should be brought before a military magistrate on the desertion charge, and be remanded to the brig.

Hopefully, they’ll provide the boy with a compass so he’ll always know the direction toward Mecca when he comes to our country.

Remember the strange fate of those Navy Seals on that heilocopter leaving Pakistan right after Osama Bin Laden was ‘killed’? That Heliocopter blew up before it was even high in the air. I still don’t believe it was just bad luck and inefficient engine maintenance, not for one minute do I believe that. It would be ‘most unfortunate’ to the regime if Bowe (he of the inconvient truth) should come back running his mouth ‘unencumbered’.

Interesting how in yesterday’s hearing, one of the congresscritters asked Hagel why he was not brought back to the US already and Hagel got pissed when it was implied that games were being played keeping him in Germany.

Well suddenly today he is being sent back. Curious....

In the most tense exchange of the hearing, Rep. Jeff Miller (R., Fla.) asks why the military hasn’t asked Sgt. Bergdahl about his capture by the Taliban and why he hasn’t been brought to a military hospital in the U.S. Mr. Hagel clearly took umbrage at Rep. Miller and said he doesn’t like “the implications” of the question. “This guy was held for five years in God knows what conditions,” Mr. Hagel said. Angrily, Mr. Hagel suggests the U.S. isn’t going to interfere with Sgt. Hagel’s medical care to begin an interrogation of him, and says members of Congress shouldn’t second guess the medical decisions.
