Too bad McChrystal didn't extend his advice to the Administration, who is using Bowe al Ameriki as a political pawn.

McChrystal spoke to Yahoo from Gettysburg, Pa., where he headlined a summit for the Franklin Project on national service Wednesday.  Earlier this week, he advocated for all young people between the ages of 18-28 to perform a year of national service.

In a piece published by Politico, McChrystal wrote that a year of culturally expected, if not legally required, "challenging, meaningful" national service is "the big idea of our time" and would be mutually beneficial for both young people and the country.
I know, we can call it "Obama Youth."

Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that the administration is going to keep this kid under wraps until all of the facts are out, and then concoct some weird story that weaves all these "facts" together.  Then they'll lay the situation out for Bergdahl: stick with this story or be tried for treason.

If this kid is at all pliable, I'd look for him to be trotted out as a patriot who was secretly working for the intelligence services and faked his desertion in order to infiltrate the enemy; or something at least as implausible.

There is no telling what you might get when you have defense attorneys running the prosecution.

I agree.  There is no way that they are going to let this unravel, they will do whatever they have to in order to make a story congruent with their objectives.  We have seen that there is no LIE too big, nor any measure too LOW for this regime.  The only question that remains is how many are still gullible enough to believe them.

That's easy. At least 47%. When they are done with amnesty, it will be well over 50%.

There is no way the intel community will allow that lie to stand.  Obama backed the wrong guy, and the only way to make it go away is to ignore it.  The sliver of hope is that Obama is so arrogant, yet so stupid, that he may actually try to sell the "intel" lie, but it's so implausible that it won't stand up to scrutiny.

Maybe, but so much of what he says/does is implausible and yet it keeps getting bought time and time again.  Too many Americans are irretrievably stupid.

McChrystal is covering his own ass here.  He, ultimately, is responsible for the deployment of those six men who died searching for a deserter. 

I don't believe ANY of these perfumed princes in the military hierarchy nor do I respect them.  They have traded their honor in service of a coward.

Except this time there are credible eyewitnesses--his unit.  And these soldiers are PO'd!! and they're talking, and not mincing words.

The zero administration did not see this coming.   :smokin:

Hence the effort to destroy their credibility as being 'psychopaths'.

On the one hand, we are asked to wait for the 'facts' on Bergdahl and on the other, we are being conditioned to think of his leaders as 'psychopaths'.

It should work though.  Too many people incapable of critical-thought...

Yes, 'psychopaths.'

Believe it or not, as I was flipping through channels sometime last evening, I actually heard a panel (it may have been CNN) on which one of the members suggested that Bergdahl may have been 'bullied' by his platoon mates.....
