This situation makes me sad for the state of our Country. Seems like a whole lot of people want to hang the guy - right now. And the disturbing part, is who is yelling the loudest. Of course the bleeding heart liberals cheer for his release, and so do I. I am happy when any non violent human is released from captivity. But to hear those on the right that claim to champion the Constitution, those who yell the loudest about protecting the Bill of Rights, seem to forget about the concept of due process. As an enlisted Army puke ( I'm a Marine, so if you're in the Army - you're a puke, sorry bout' yer luck ) he is not only subject to the Bill of Rights, but also subject to the UCMJ which also has provisions that are similar to the 5th and 6th Amendments. So instead of yelling "TRAITOR" from the comfort of your chair, I'm talking to you Ann Coulter, Shawn Hannity, and many others, how about you try to help by, investigating, almost in the way that a "journalist" would some truthful information that can be used in a trial. And then if the man is found guilty of desertion, say what you will. But for now all I have heard is that some of the men in his unit have said that he deserted his post. And supposedly he left some type of letter behind. As for right now - all of that is hearsay. Let me tell you, war is indeed hell. And he may have walked away to clear his head, or blow off some steam, or find a place to rub one out. And some Taliban guys found an easy mark. Afghanistan is one of those places where you cannot see who your enemy is until he opens fire on you. For the last 3 months he may have been feeding you chow, and today he's wearing a suicide vest. You may have been training him to clear houses with the ANA, and today he turns his weapon on your friends and you. Just sayin' - we don't know what happened. Bill Clinton said "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" - Does that make it true ? Obama said " If you like your insurance, you can keep it" - Does that make it true ? Harry Reid say's Clive Bundy is a domestic terrorist - Does that make it true ? They say 6 men were killed looking for him. Really? Oh, yes, 6 men died, and they may have actually been looking for Bergdahl, or they may have been just out on a patrol, or they may have been sent into someplace they were not prepared for by an inexperienced LT. Or sent on a suicide mission ( without their knowledge ) by the CIA. And the Bergdahl situation was just what they needed to explain the loss. Never fully believe the "official report" that comes out of a hot zone where lives have been lost. Fox News reports that some "secret documents" prove that Bergdahl converted to Islam while in custody. Okay, he was in a cage held captive by fundamental Islamics who preach convert or die. What choice did he have. Die ? Not much chance of getting out alive then. If given that choice most of us could pretend to convert to Easter Bunny worship. Even the Pentagon say's they cannot verify how Bergdahl came to end up in Taliban custody. But I am sure at this moment they have their best investigators working on that. So is the guy a deserter ? Maybe. A traitor ? Maybe... An American, yup... So unless he turned his weapon on this comrades, and really - even if he did, as an American citizen and soldier he has the right to a trail, to be proved guilty. Not declared guilty because he was accused. And if found guilty, then sentenced accordingly - and the UCMJ is very specific about that. I'm just getting sick of people on the news and online regurgitating things that they have "heard" as fact. Not just in this story, but in most stories. The truth gets lost 2 seconds after something happens. Like the only reason Trayvon Martin was shot is because he was black. Which is bullcrap.
