There is no way Bergdahl will be court-martialed for desertion. Guilty or not,
it might be perceived as an embarrassment to Obama. Bergdahl doesn't need
his own special lawyer, he already has the Commander-In-Chief backing him. This
so-called investigation hasn't even led to interviews with the key
witnesses (fellow soldiers) who knew him best.
Hey JDL –“You have lost all credibility and now your
argument is moot.”LolYou mean? . . . . I’m
a bad guy in Right Wing La La Land? . . . Just like TR, LBJ, Obama, the
Clintons, MLK, FDR, et al?Thank you! I’ll put that
on my resumé.
Gary, the likely reason he has not been discharged especially given the evidence
his platoon has articulated against him which was unanimous incidentally, is so
that the military retains jurisdiction for the upcoming desertion investigation
and trial. Think of his assigned "helpers" as something more akin to
guards making sure he doesn't abscond again. Nobody is going to trust him
to have their back ever again and he has no future in the Army except as a
poster boy for desertion.
Gary,You posted, "I said he has already been convicted by Right
Wingers without trial.And if they had their way, he would be rotting
in Afghanistan or already dead, because the idea of leaving soldiers behind in
the hands of the enemy and in harm's way is apparently just OK with
America's political Right Wing.It's the
"Conservative" way."Just so you know, I consider myself
a "right winger" and a "conservative" yet, I have never thought
what you said above and I believe there are many millions more of the
demographic you just derided who feel the same as me. You blast Rush Limbaugh
for his comments and yet you turn RIGHT around and do the same thing to another
poster.You have lost all credibility and now your argument is moot.
Some of us are patriots even though some of the military leaders and some of
their civilian counterparts are not necessarily so. We have allowed the
academies, who have also had problems over the years to teach that you have to
take down some of those along the way to advance, not by physically doing it,
but the political means, even in the military from first year students,
potential officers, to the end of their term. They have teamwork skills but
even that is a game. This Sergeant was not in a game, he was in a
war zone with real bullets and real enemies against our country. He had an
obligation to be there. Those that knew and know him sometimes know a
person's inner thoughts when you are in a platoon or squad. You eat,
sleep, rest, are on duty and even fight or potentially fight with them in a
skirmish.We haven't had a long term war since Vietnam.
Citizens enlisted to help end the war on terrorism against the United States of
America didn't realize that due to politics that it would go on and on.
This President said he would end it.
Having been in the military during Vietnam and having been there, the term that
should be used for this man would be deserter not AWOL as the news and others
call it. He left his post that the others relied on him being there. We had
some that were AWOL but after the 30 days were classified as deserters. The bad
guys want to use this as a case they can show their people we don't have
character in our military leadership. The other side can show we give in to the
public when a person deserts their post. He was given a heroes homecoming as we
saw in the Philippines after real POWS returned home.Setting
precedence is not good when military people take an oath. The military people
don't have it easy but you are to have camaraderie and dedication to others
that depend on you in your duties. To have the military spend days looking for
this troop took days and exposed our other troops to being targets
themselves.Justice and military justice for all who leave their
He's gonna need one.
Hey boneheaded -"It's the "liberal, takers'"
way"Takers huh?Oh that's right.There are makers, and there are takers, and then of course their are the
FAKERS who pretend to be makers. The loudest
"Conservatives" usually fall into the latter category.
oh garyeverybody that doesn't agree with you and barry are right
wingers. libs love to name call. Unlike you, who wasn't there, ALL of his
platoon members said the guy LEFT willingly and hooked up with terrorists.Libs don't believe in even trying anyone with similar leanings. Under
barry's regime you just change subjects, scandals and use stalling tactics.
Glad you and a dozen others in the US think this guy is not guilyt and that
barry is doing a great job.It's the "liberal, takers'"
Hey boneheaded -"oh gary and libs say he is innicent."No I didn't say he is innicent. And I didn't say he's
innocent.I said he has already been convicted by Right Wingers
without trial.And if they had their way, he would be rotting in
Afghanistan or already dead, because the idea of leaving soldiers behind in the
hands of the enemy and in harm's way is apparently just OK with
America's political Right Wing.It's the
oh gary and libs say he is innicent. i hope he has a good criminal attorney. he
will need it. i'd believe a guy that says he doesn't believe in the
US, sounds like someone else libs love.
If he is to be tried by a jury of his peers, then a good place to start wold be
the men he served with. Unfortunately they will be inelligible to serve on the
jury because the, to a man, say that he went AWOL. Who would know better than
"Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl hires lawyer for military investigation"Why?He has already been convicted by American
"Conservatives." If they had their way, he would be stuffed
in a box somewhere in Afghanistan awaiting his daily torture session.The Great Rush Limbaugh and his acolytes have already found him guilty of
treason.The only thing to now is sentence him and carry out that
sentence.Maybe Rush will tell us what his plans are tomorrow.
