I think these good people are in for a very rude awakening.  Bowie is no hero, and will be lucky not to be prosecuted for desertion in the face of the enemy, which carries a death sentence.

I think Bowie is an everyday common shithead who got himself in way over his head by deserting and attempting to join the Taliban.  Apparently they aren't interested in infidel white boy wanna-bes who have no frickin' clue what native Afghanis want or need.

This whole episode is an embarrassment to this Nation, and it is an even bigger embarrassment that the United States allowed itself to be sucked into a shady deal like this one, set up by Quatar, which does not have our best interests in mind in the first place.  If you recall, Quatar was willing to host peace talks with the Taliban in their country!

"To those of us in Hailey, Bowe is certainly a hero,"
Yeah, there was a time when one actually had to perform an heroic act to be considered a hero.   **nononono*

Sgt Bergdahl could face a court martial for desertion when he finally returns to the United States

...and what about the 6 HEROS who died looking for this deserter...I pray for those families!

I am waiting for the true story to come out about the soldier. (I see nothing about his rise to E5 Sargeant)

I will say it looks like yet another demostration of weakness by Obama, which his subordinates seem to specialize with.

Promotions based on tenure are honored for POWs, aren't they?
Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.

Sure looks that way to me!

We'll see how it plays out.

Maybe they donated it to leftist causes.  **nononono*
