According to a new report from Fox News' Catherine Herridge, teammates of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl were asked to sign non-disclosure agreements years ago after discussing his desertion with the Joint Chiefs Chairman in Afghanistan.
According to Herridge's reporting and General Bob Scales, asking soldiers to sign non-disclosure agreements is unprecedented.
"I can't remember, ever, have an enlisted soldier sign a non-disclosure agreement for anything. This is completely unprecedented," Scales said. "These non-disclosure agreements have got nothing to do with military justice."
Further, new information shows Bergdahl not only deserted, but started planning for his departure by sleeping on the floor and prepared himself for life outside of the military.
Earlier this week, General Stanley McChrystal admitted he knew Bergdahl had deserted immediately after leaving his post in June 2009. The White House maintains officials weren't and still aren't sure about the circumstances surrounding his capture by the Taliban.
Bergdahl will stand trial at Ft. Sam Houston later this year.
He deserves the maximum sentence for hid dereliction of duty. And so does Burgdahl.
But Gen Scales is wrong. Enlisted sign NDA’s all the time. For classified information.
Barack Obama is a naked traitor who knowingly released Al Qaeda terrorist officers for a Islamist deserter.
Give him a room on a nice island, I hear there is some room at gitmo now.
I don’t know how it is now but when I was a Marine grunt if an officer asked me to sign something like this I would have done it, no questions asked.
The phrase “asked to sign” is not the truth. The real truth would be the phrase forced to sign.
