JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO, 'ON THE RECORD' GUEST HOST: How exactly did the U.S. Army respond in the hours and days and weeks right after Sergeant Bergdahl walked off his base? Turns out, there is a classified military log leaked.
The "Wall Street Journal's" Jason Bellini has been combing through that secret log. He joins us now.
Good evening, Jason. What can you can tell us?
JASON BELLINI, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: Hi there, Judge. I have been going through and there is fascinating details in there. This log starts at 9:00 in the morning on June 9th, 2008. That's when Bowe Bergdahl's unit reported that he was absent at morning "roll call." OK, so that immediately Army commanders order all units in the zone to do a roll call. Their troops and they order Bergdahl's unit, called Blackfoot, to do a search of all their vehicles, latrines, and also the Afghan military post that was at their base. They confirmed that Bergdahl was nowhere to be found.
And this is where you really see the military pull out all stops on that day and in the weeks to come to try to find him. The order comes down, all military assets are to be focused on the DUSTWUN situation. "DUSTWUN" standing for duty, status, whereabouts unknown.

Multiple platoons are deployed to search for him, including a team with tracking dogs. And a plane is running to intercept Taliban radio transmissions. Here is what that yields. They pick up someone saying that they found an American soldier looking for someone who speaks English and who had a camera on him.
But, even with all the resources, planes, helicopters, boots on the ground being devoted in the search for Bergdahl, according to the documents, no new information was found right then. But a few weeks later, a presumed Taliban member is intercepted speculating that Bergdahl is a big shot, that’s why they are looking for him. And then a report from a police source that a Taliban wants to trade 15 Taliban for the Americans. And there’s fresh intelligence on his location.
These “secret” logs were leaked by someone in the government. That’s the government, you know, the one run by Obama. These may be, and likely are, accurate, but how do we know that they are complete? I wouldn’t at all put it past Obama to create a subset of the logs that are favorable to the administration, and then ‘leak’ them to the press.

The word is that they will avoid all of this evidence by going for a medical discharge —
and then those who vote for it will file their own.
Either Fox or WSJ goofed on the date- it was 2009, I believe, not 2008.
