It's not true they can't determine his intent without talking to him. The Manual for Courts Martial says that circumstantial evidence can be used to determine intent to desert. Such things as prior to departure taking care of possessions or finances are among those actions listed that can be used to determine intent.

No doubt he will get a hero’s welcome. Do I really need to add the /sarcasm tag?

This Administration has no choice but to cover for him after the exchange they made. Obama sells America out at every moment he can.

I would not be surprised if the Obama regime transfered Bergdahl to The Old Guard.

Damn, I hate this bunch.

It’s all about mentality. If a guy deserted because of supposed fear under fire. I would keep him out of combat action. There’s no knowing if he really has developed somehow better brass this time around.

Funny how the “manual” is not utilized in a civilian court (legal process)...

I say put him back on the front line...

They will love him being there...By both sides...

I’m betting they assign him to a Personnel Control Facility. It’s not a jail. It’s more of a temporary holding facility.

His first order of business should be to get his dress uniform squared away for his upcoming hearing(s).

On a somewhat similar note, where was Obama when I was 10 and into baseball cards? I could have swindled him out of all his best baseball cards for a Dal Maxvill...

My guess is that he will be processed for discharge the day after he returns to active duty. With accumulated leave he will probably never actually return to active duty. If his ‘capture’ is considered valid service time then he will get a very large payout from the Army for accumulated pay and leave.
