If only he was a cowardly deserter but he was training Taliban to attack our troops.
At this point he and Obama are equal traitors.

Every troop in Afghanistan knows Bergdahl is a deserter who likely put all of them in harm's way via information he gave to the Taliban.

The White House literally couldn't have picked a worse "POW" to give up for Taliban leaders if they had tried.  Is the WH this incompetent?  The story tomorrow is going to be many Americans wondering why his dad spoke in Arabic next to Obama, why the mom and dad have yet to speak to their cowardly son, and why Bergdahl shouldn't immediately be arrested by MPs as a deserter at best, and a traitor at worse. 

This is such a bizarre move by Obama that I'm struggling to see what the point is.  Honoring a deserter isn't exactly the best way to put the VA deaths behind in the news cycle.  Is Obama literally insane at this point?

Not insane, no.  Stupid beyond belief.  Desperate for some major "win" so Obama can spike the ball and look good on foreign policy.  Desperate to take Benghazi off the front page.  Desperate to take the VA scandal off the front page.  Desperate to take Ukraine and Vlad Putin off the front page.  Desperate to take the 4 year old Syrian civil war off the front page.  Desperate for John Fing Kerry to have something to not look ridiculous about.

Insane?  No.  This is what happens when rank amateurs have the keys to the Kingdom.

I was told there was no difference between "Mittens" Romney and Barry Soe-zero.  I was banned from other sites for having this opinion, and have taken heat here for it.

International Business Times:  Bergdahl no hero to fellow soldiers

Bowe Bergdahl No Hero To Fellow Soldiers

Fellow Soldiers Say Bergdahl No Hero


Not everyone is elated over the release of POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in a prisoner swap deal with the Taliban: Some veterans and soldiers are calling him a deserter.

Former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl's platoon, told CNN Bergdahl should face military trial for desertion.

Bergdahl disappeared from his platoon in Afghanistan June 30, 2009, and had been in Taliban custody for five years before his release Saturday. He has been taken to a U.S. military base in Germany for treatment.

"I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on," Vierkant said. "Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him."

CNN said at least six soldiers died searching for Bergdahl in Paktika province.

"He walked off," former Pfc. Jose Baggett, 27, of Chicago told CNN. "He left his guard post. Nobody knows if he defected or he's a traitor or he was kidnapped. What I do know is he was there to protect us and instead he decided to defer from America and go and do his own thing. I don't know why he decided to do that, but we spend so much of our resources and some of those resources were soldiers' lives."

Some fellow soldiers have taken to social media to express their anger at Bergdahl on such pages as "Bowe Bergdahl is NOT a hero." Comments, however, have been so vicious, a moderator posted:

"I challenge any one of you who label him a traitor to spend 5 years in captivity with the Taliban or Haqqani, then come back and accuse him again. Whatever his intent when he walked away or was captured, he has more than paid for it."

Rolling Stone reported in 2012 Bergdahl had become disillusioned with the U.S. war effort and told his parents: "The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be American. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting."

The media feigns stupidity so well they must have taken lessons from the government...
