One theory that’s been put forward in an attempt to justify Bowe Bergdahl’s suspected Army desertion is that perhaps his platoon was full of “psychopaths.”

Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Christine, is also floating a similar scenario:

Pelosi awaits an Army investigation of a platoon she’s already deemed “dysfunctional”? Pelosi was apparently referencing a Rolling Stone article published in 2012 titled “America’s Last Prisoner of War.” The article was written by Michael Hastings, who died in a car accident last year.

Tweeters wanted to know what solid evidence Pelosi had to justify her “dysfunctional” platoon allegation, among other things:

A reminder for Pelosi and others floating the notion that Bergdahl might have deserted because his unit was “dysfunctional”:

One explanation, Christine Pelosi-style:

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    When there’s a link, I click onto it. The RS article seems to imply that Bergdahl was some sort of oddball who really bought into the whole winning-hearts-and-minds strategy (apparently without the caveat of also needing to squeeze their nuts), more the fool he, whereas the platoon were more of a bunch of goldbricks dragging their feet in protest of the war being conducted, where they were concerned, in a manner about as squared away as a soup sandwich.

    I can see why the Obama Administration would identify with such a head-up-his-ass dreamer who fancied himself a one-man-band to change the world, when it’s obvious he reminds them of somebody who apparently giveth not $#!t-one about anyone else, and will go on to free-lance by himself to bring on the golden age. The platoon, for however “dysfunctional” they may have seemed to be, still stood post, and fought when called upon, however stupidly they felt the command structure above them was. It’s called “Soldiering on” for a reason. It’s what soldiers have ALWAYS done– gripe and fight. And it’s what WE’VE been having to do in this country for the last five years.

    • Stephen L. Hall #NonquamTrump

      This is the dysfunction they are claiming.

      The unruly situation was captured by … a British documentary filmmaker [whose] footage shows a bunch of soldiers who no longer give a shit: breaking even the most basic rules of combat, like wearing baseball caps on patrol instead of helmets.

      Oh noes I feel faint, they were wearing baseball caps instead of regulation helmet’s/

      • Jay Stevens

        I clicked on the link.

        Worse than the “ball cap” point was No.7″

        “7) Bergdahl could have been freed in a prisoner exchange
        almost immediately, but the American officer in charge did not pull the trigger on a prisoner swap:
        Tribal elders from the nearby village…had been asked by the Taliban to arrange a trade with U.S. forces. The insurgents wanted 15 of their jailed fighters released, along with an unidentified sum of money, in exchange for Bowe. The officer hedged, unwilling or unable to make such a bargain, and no deal was struck.”

        If true, that officer had absolutely no authority to make such a bargain.

        • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

          Remember Hastings was a far left anti war zealot that was angry about the surge in Afghanistan, He wasn’t beyond using Bergdahl or his platoon to smear the US military effort in Afghanistan.

          It’s weird you would think Pelosi spawn would know that Hasting’s was attacking Obama from his left flank. So why use Hasting’s article as if it validates attacking Bergdahl’s platoon?

          But I don’t expect much logic out of the Pelosi’s.

      I agree – he sounds like some standard BHL who thought he could go to war and not have to do any of that nasty violent war-stuff. Then when he realized he was expected to actually fight he gathered up his backpack and went out to find those “poor misunderstood Taliban.” No doubt many of the young soldiers found that war does suck but they performed their duty rather than turn tail.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Actually, his nickname, according to the article, was “Special Forces,” a nickname they give to grunts who think and act like they should be in some more high-prestige unit like the rangers or snipers, or even the Green Berets, and think they’re God’s gift to the US Army. Apparently he thought you were supposed to be embedded with the natives and teach them all wonderful kumbaya-type stuff so they’d want to fight the Taliban themselves, if it came to a need for fighting. Meanwhile, if anyone tried to interfere with all your Mother Teresa nonsense, you’d still know fifteen ways to kill them. Apparently somewhere along the line he became convinced it was the Taliban who were doing what HE wanted to do.

        • Red Fred

          Well he did study ballet, which kind of quantifies him for a high prestige position.

  • Name

    Regardless of how bad any Army unit leadership and/or membership is, it is NEVER an excuse to turn colors and walk away from your post. If it’s bad, you work within the system to change. There are a whole bunch of methods a private can use if he feels a need to expose problems. Chaplains, Inspector Generals, letters to Congressmen, and senior commanders are all avenues to pursue rather than abandoning your post, walking away and joining the other side. Even if his platoon and company leadership were the absolute WORST in the Army (and I doubt it), it still does not serve as a reason to do what he did.

    You can bet your bottom dollar that in the aftermath of his desertion the investigation would have included a review of the company and platoon. A disaffected soldier walking off in the middle of a combat zone raises so many questions that would need to be answered. There is no evidence that any thing came from that. It would have been quickly ‘leaked’ that disciplinary action had been taken against platoon and company leadership. At the time, his desertion was blot on the military forces of the US and anything that could be put up to protect that reputation would have been out there ASAP. They would have hung whoever they could out to dry. Expect some unverifiable reporting on something like this once the ‘if it leaks we will kill him’ fable fully crashes and burns.
