Bergdahl had deserted before & officers KNEW he was a risk: Classified report reveals Armyís fears..
The London Daily Mail ^ | June 4, 2014 | Michael Zennie

A U.S. Army investigation found that Bowe Bergdahl had walked away from his post at least once before his capture - and that other soldiers in his unit knew he was a flight risk.

The 2010 report, called an AR15-6, is still classified, but it appears to confirm allegations that the former prisoner of war violated military regulations - and that the Pentagon knew it all along.

The revelation, attributed to anonymous sources by the Military Times, comes as the nation's top general, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, acknowledged the growing cloud of suspicion hanging over Bergdahl.

The Military Times report says that investigators who looked into the June 2009 capture of Bergdahl found that several soldiers from his unit said he had talked openly about wanting to leave the forward operating base where he was stationed.

They found he may have left the base at least once before, as well.

'We have no indication that he intended to leave permanently,' an official told the Military Times.

However, a different source described as a former senior military official, told the New York Times that Bergdahl left a startling note in his tent saying that he no longer supported the Army mission in Afghanistan and that he was leaving to start a new life.

Even amid the mounting evidence that Bergdahl left his post, military law experts told the Military Times that it was unlikely Bergdahl would be court martialed and imprisoned....

Thank you, Lord, for foreign media. America would be in the dark.

Obama administration is in overdrive to prevent the truth about the Obama administration. The truth could cause somebody to become upset in the Obama administration.

In one of the articles at DM it said that he was so trusted by his captors that they allowed him to sleep without restraints and they allowed him to go hunting for small game with an old English rifle.

It sounds like a summer camp — are they going to send him a bill.

I wrote my local RINO congressman, Kevin Brady this morning to ask, “Obama has clearly violated the law yet again, where are you guys?”

We demand articles of impeachment regardless what the senate does or does not do!

Breathtakingly impotent/incompetent leadership up in D.C..

If this desertion issue become a big problem for Obama, I predict that he will say that he learned about it watching the news on TV.

How many times has Obama learned about something by watching the news?

Can you imagine if Bush said he didn’t know about something but learned about it by watching the news? The liberals would have had meltdowns about how ignorant he was about what was happening in his own administration.

For a former community organizer swapping 5 Taliban detainees for 1 American deserter might have seemed like a good idea at the time.

But then to have invited his Taliban sympathizing parents to the White House to give a prayer to Allah and speak in a foreign language to the American people. Brilliant!

don't worry on that point the thugs that had him and released him have probably been paid very well courtesy of the US Taxpayers. Probably begins with a 'b' and ends in an 's'

In basic combat training I talked with a neo-Nazi who had joined to learn small unit weapons & tactics for his fascist group. The Army had sniffed him out and had him painting murals in the orderly room (he wasn’t half-bad in a primitive way) before giving him his bad conduct discharge.

Maybe something like that in this case?

Another Obama photo op to please the LIV's. The cherry on the top was the father's Arabic salute to Allah in the Rose Garden while Obama beamed even before the translation was made. Can you spell TRAITOR!!!!? Well at least it saved a trip on AF1 to bow to the Saudi King.

Bowe Bergdahl had deserted before...

And this man for five known, committed killers?

Sadly, a day will come soon when people will die at the hands of these murderers.

But take comfort in knowing that the deserter will be safe and comfy.

You're showing signs of coming over to the dark side.
