This convert to Islam is what Barack Hussein Obama exchanged for five Taliban terrorists, at least one of whom has already returned to the battlefield. According to intelligence reports, four of the five Taliban freed to obtain Bowe Bergdahl’s release are expected to return to the battlefield.
Berghdahl attorney Eugene Fidell reportedly told journalists that Bergdahl was presented with a charge sheet on Tuesday. In addition to the desertion charge, Bergdahl will also be charged for “misbehavior before the enemy.”
Townhall The United States Army announced this afternoon from Ft. Bragg, North Carolina that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be charged under the Uniformed Code of Military Justice with one count of desertion with intention to shirk important and hazardous duty and one count of misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place.
Last year President Obama held a ceremony in the Rose Garden with Bergdahl’s parents and touted the swap of Bergdahl as an important moment in U.S. history, arguing no American should be left behind on the battlefield.
If convicted, the first charge of desertion carries a potential maximum penalty of dishonorable discharge, rank deduction, forfeiture of paid allowances and maximum confinement of five years. The second charge of misbehavior before the enemy carries a potential maximum penalty of reduction in rank, forfeiture of paid allowances, confinement for life.
So, apparently, it is now the official position of the US military that the US government went out and traded five terrorists for a deserter. (He should have been charged with treason and hanged, but he won’t be. He should at least face life in prison, but he’ll likely be given 5 – 10 years, then probably pardoned by Obama before he leaves office. Six soldiers were killed looking for this Muslim POS)
National Security Advisor Susan Rice said during an interview with ABC News that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction.
Not a single member of Bergdahl’s platoon came forward to defend him against desertion allegations. In fact they all contradict Susan Rice’s claim that Bergdahl “servered with honor.”
Shortly after the swap was released, many members of Bergdahl’s Afghanistan platoon came forward to accuse him of desertion. Allies of the administration questioned the integrity of the men for doing so. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development Brandon Friedman suggested publicly that the platoon might be full of “psychopaths.” State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf portrayed the allegations of platoon members as not credible and the men as liars. She refused to apologize for doing so.
