This is what a real hero looks like.

Army MSG Mark Allen’s wife writes on the Facebook site, “Bowe Bergdahl is a traitor:”

“Meet my husband, injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor. He can’t give an account of what went down, because he can no longer speak. Now, which guy is a ‘hero’ again?!? Sick.”

The petition drive to the White House to hold Bergdahl accountable for deserting his post is underway.

      Be signing it soon, but you know Holder is fuming, Obama sucking his thumb he’s getting blowback on his imbecillic move..

      Won’t care if their widdle fweelings get hurted…

      it comes down to, pathetically ignorant and completely tone deaf?

      Or deliberately sticking their thumb in the eye of America?

      So completely delusional, they seem to think, illegal or not, if THEY do it, it’s not just good, but Godlike.. and how DARE these miserable peasants speak ill of their betters…

      even more disgraceful, his supporters are rallying to deflect from this.. no no.. don’t look, don’t think,… we said it is good, now shut up and like it.

    I want Bergdahl treated for his physical conditions. He needs to be brought up on charges of dereliction of duty, desertion, and I wish…manslaughter. I cannot lean towards PTSD that lead to this, he was dissing AMERICA before he was deployed. He is a traitor, or lives in the rainbow forest thinking he could “change” the tribal nature of the muslims in Afghanistan.

  • Mr. Right

    Obama is getting treated by the media with kid gloves with this major blunder. If this was Bush the media would be calling for his impeachment.

    • Lucian

      You mean their standing calls for his impeachment would have increased to a banshee wail.

  • DS11T

    And the 0bama administration says they needed to fast-track his release because of his health!!! What about the health of MSG Mark Allen ?!?!? What about the health of all the other veterans under this government controlled healthcare fiasco called the VA? SALUTE TO YOU, MSG ALLEN for your BRAVERY and SACRIFICE in defending this country, and an additional SALUTE and thank you to Mrs. Allen for the sacrifices YOU and your family have endured !!!!!!!

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Sadly, Sergeant Allen will be forgotten as having had anything to do with this story, as, face it– his injuries could have come about on any mission, even in Iraq had they occurred there. And this is a brutal fact the Administration hopes you do not forget, as it tends to minimize their culpability for what happened to him.

    Changing gears somewhat, how long before there is some sort of “Truther” move to discover whether Bergdahl’s “walkabout” was some sort of “secret mission,” and that he really IS a “hero”? I would not put it past some out there to try to pull this fast one on the American public. It is hardly THAT unlikely, given the kind of “Truther” mentalities we’ve had on other sorts of issues.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      The crazies will always be there, the problem is the left endorses theirs, reports their views as opinion, while mainstream opinion on our side, is labeled fringe, crazy…

      the one given about this media is the truth is the only thing they will never say, lies and distortions are their tools to “transform” America.

      The progressives have always hated the way this country operates, because it never guaranteed them power over the lives of evrry human being, to force their will on the unwilling. So the left wing media had their little Obamagasm over his promise to “transform” what the progressives left always hated about America… which was much..

      they never believed in the right to free expression, just their “right” to tell you what that expression would be, like it or not. Obama admitted he never liked the Constitution, because he knew the limits it put on power,… now, if we survive this twits terms, and succeed in winning a landslide big enough they can”t steal the election, to elect a republican..

      If he followed just one Obama precedent on executive orders, on rewriting the statutes in federal agencies…

      the NYT’s will label him/her a despot tyrant dictater.. for following the same rules Obama himself established..

      they rig the game, we all know it..

      Until the traitor press reforms, it won’t change.. how we force that change, and remain free,.. I’m open to ideas.

  • Joe Mamma

    While I support the effort to bring this deserter to justice, I think we’re losing sight of the bigger picture…….
    Obama’s willingness to break our laws by trading prisoners and negotiating with terrorist without the approval of congress!
    Something much bigger is at play here and this guy Bowe is just a pawn to reign in a bigger agenda???

    • ScottinVA

      Yep.
      This is especially so in light of the fact the five jihadis released were specifically selected by the Taliban themselves.

      • OmaJohn

        Obama helping the Taliban?

        Nothing new there.

        He’s been helping fundamentalist Muslims since he got in office. His world apology tours flipping the bird to Israel, his actions regarding Egypt, Syria, Libya, etc, etc. This exchange, his opening channels to the Taliban the entire time. His building public support for the closing of Gitmo (mixed feelings on that myself, but it definitely plays into what defines BHO). Let’s not forget Benghazi. It goes on ad nauseam.

        People who voted for him just don’t care. So it doesn’t matter what intelligent people think.

        • OmaJohn

          And more like him are coming down the pipe, rest assured. The problem isn’t Obama. There have always been dirtbags with no morals who lusted for power. Nothing exceptional there. The problem is that our society elected him, and will elect more like him. Thus the wheel of democracy grinds on.

    • Terry Hess

      Let’s not forget…just a week prior to the release of the Fab Five, Obama gave up the name of our top under cover operative in Afghanistan. Just another blunder by the idiot in charge OR another part of the deal to free Bergdahl.

  • Lee McCrary

    I am sorry for MSG Allen, and I hate what Bergdahl did
    , but Allen’s injuries are a result of being deployed to Afghanistan. The same thing could have happened on any mission even just convoying down the road. I was there and the danger is 24/7

    “Army SGT Bergdahl was not “captured” by the enemy in 2009. He abandoned his assigned post on his Forward Operating Base (FOB), leaving his weapon. Several U.S. Army Soldiers lost their lives in search for Bergdahl. His disappearance can only be classified as desertion …”

  • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    There is a report out saying that Bergdahl left a note on his bunk stating that he wanted to join the Taliban. Don’t know of the validity of this, have to learn more.

    • Nyota Uhura

      I saw that, too — as well as a report that Bergdahl called his CO on his cell phone and said he’s not coming back.

    • CO2 Producer

      When outlets like the NYTimes are giving credence to the accounts of those who served beside Bergdahl, even the most diehard of Obama defenders have to pause for a moment and carefully reassess their assumptions.

      • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        I also read the following, “Everyone thought this would be a January 1981 moment,’ the insider said, referring to the negotiated release of 52 U.S. hostages in Iran after 444 days in captivity.

        ‘Reagan negotiated with terrorists in the weeks before he took office,’ the official said. ‘I don’t remember anyone objecting at the time. They just wanted our people home.’”

        As if the two situations are even remotely alike. Reagan did NOT release any terrorists or prisoners. The hostages were embassy staff, not deserters. The 52 people were finally released because Reagan threatened to bomb the living crap out of Iran.

        That quote is attributed to Obama staffers. I just have to wonder how much history those people even know.

        • CO2 Producer

          They probably know. They don’t care. When the Administration isn’t acting like pouty children, they’re trying to justify their actions by comparing them to other moments in history. It’s good to see that at least for now, the media is taking its blinders off and doing a little objective investigative journalism for a change. Likely won’t last for long.

        • Linda

          Speaking of history, the little fact that arms were sold to Iran has been forgotten.

          “Weinberger wrote that Reagan said “he could answer to charges of illegality but couldn’t answer to the charge that ‘big strong President Reagan passed up a chance to free the hostages'”.[14] After the weapon sales were revealed in November 1986, Reagan appeared on national television and stated that the weapons transfers had indeed occurred, but that the United States did not trade arms for hostages.[15] The investigation was impeded when large volumes of documents relating to the scandal were destroyed or withheld from investigators by Reagan administration officials.[16] On March 4, 1987, Reagan returned to the airwaves in a nationally televised address, taking full responsibility for any actions that he was unaware of, and admitting that “what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated, in its implementation, into trading arms for hostages”.[17]

            never happened… but here an obama “official” says it did… more left wing delusional idiocy, it would be illegal for a president elect to try and make his own foreign policy, before assuming office, and these douchebags know it.

            More left wing, well.. we just KNOW republicans Break the law, so we can too..bullschit.

    • Bill Phillips

      FOX News reporter has ‘verified’ the validity of Bergdahl leaving a note …essentially renouncing his American citizenship!
      That in and of itself is a grave offense to anyone in military service!

      • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        I’ll just feel better when other outlets besides FOX pick it up and report on it. Far too easy for the masses to automatically dismiss something if the source is FOX.

        • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

          Fox is the only one that will report it though. The MSM is too busy painting Bergdahl as a hero and applauding Obama, so they will bury anything that makes Obama look like a terrorist sympathizer.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            I think that in this case the other media outlets will have to report it simply due to the overwhelming bipartisan concern among Americans.

  • Hannibal

    I feel bad that I missed it! There must have been a rose garden reception for Master Sergeant Mark Allen, right? Obama hugged his wife, put his daughter on his lap? Said how much he loves and supports veterans? Like I said, don’t know how I missed it.

  • CO2 Producer

    How come Bergdahl was promoted twice while in captivity, first to Specialist then to Sergeant? Why is Bergdahl about to be promoted again to Staff Sergeant? Let’s cut to the chase and make him Sergeant Major.

    Meanwhile, men like Mark Allen may go no further than their current rank (Master Sergeant, in Allen’s case) for going out to find Bergdahl.

    • Steve in Katy

      Thanks for that. I was wondering what MSG meant… besides Chinese food additives.

    • Nyota Uhura

      When I was in the Army, you had to go through testing to earn any rank above specialist 4 — but I guess the rules are different for POWs, or whatever his designation is.

      • bicentennialguy

        I was thinking the same thing. I was in the Navy and for advancement to E2 and E3, the requirements had to be met and a request for advancement had to be done and signed off on. Those were the “automatic” advancements. Once you were going for E4 and above, you had to have your requirements completed and then take the advancement exam.

        Of course, it’s a brand-spanking new military out there…..

        • Nyota Uhura

          Yep — the rules have changed radically since I served back in the Jurassic Era :)

          • NavyGal

            Same here, you could have all your requirements and pass all the test sections yet still not be promoted; PNA (Pass Not Advanced). The Navy, as I recall, operates on a quota basis. If they don’t need more AT2s (E-5), they don’t promote any AT3s.

          • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

            In the 80’s.. SAC was strict, E4 Sargent and above, you had to test.. if you failed to make E6, Tech Sgt. Before reaching your 20th year, qualifying for retirement, and pension.. they discharged you in the end of your 19th year, no exceptions.. we called it, “up, or out”..

            Making rank was slow then.. but the Air Force at the time was much much larger, as all the services were. Close to a million active airmen.. Reagan was expanding the fleet to 600 ships.. the Army had just over 2 million I think.. counting reserves..

            And in 1980 basic training was not far removed from full metal jacket,.. had the same kind of TI. They couldn’t actually punch you.. but, ya know,.. people, um, trip… a lot in some cases..

            Not saying it was better, but you had to really want to graduate basic, and that was the Air Force… the Army, Marines had it longer, tougher.

            couldn’t understand why a young soldier I met held us who went through “old” basic in such high esteem, until I found out about the changes..

          • mike_in_kosovo

            “Stress Card, Drill Sergeant!!”

    • jaded

      You’d have to read the section at myarmy regarding POW or MIA status, but it is all about length of time. He’s only been promoted once, and he may be promoted again this month due to length of time. I hope there is major outrage if he is promoted again.

      • CO2 Producer

        The article I linked to said he was promoted twice while in captivity.

        Promotions: POW personnel continue to be considered for promotion along with their contemporaries. Policy provides for each missing or captured officer/enlisted member to be considered for promotion to the next higher grade when they are eligible. The eligibility for officers is based on the date of rank in their current grade. For enlisted members, eligibility is based on time in grade and time in service.

        They can be considered for promotion, but they don’t have to be promoted. It’s not automatic. I’d like to know who determined his promotions and why, since the military brass had to have known what he did before he disappeared.

        • jaded

          He is still a sergeant and up for staff sergeant, so I think the article is incorrect in stating he was promoted twice.

          • CO2 Producer

            He was promoted to specialist first, then sergeant.

            Army Promotes Missing-Captured Soldier

            The Army announced today the promotion of a soldier listed as Missing-Captured while supporting Operation Enduring Freedom to the rank of sergeant effective June 12, 2011.
            Sgt. Bowe R. Bergdahl, 25, is assigned to 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, Fort Richardson, Alaska.
            This is Bergdahl’s second promotion since he was listed as Missing-Captured on June 30, 2009. He was promoted to the rank of specialist on June 12, 2010.

        True. I can imagine their response. Something along the lines of GFY.

        It’s still BS that a petition has to filled out to carry out normal processes of the law.

          Well, to be fair we don’t know yet that it will be necessary.

          We’ll have to give it a couple weeks to see if he is brought up on formal charges.

  • Steve in Katy

    Hmmm. Anti-American emails to dad, calls to CO that he’s not coming back to camp. If he comes back and rails against the war he could be SoS material.

    Can someone START a petition that calls for the impeachment punishment of Obama for his disregard of the law that was supposed to prevent him from unilaterally releasing Gitmo prisoners?
    It would be very interesting to see how many millions of ‘signatures’ join that petition!

    • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      You can. Go for it.

  • Linda

    I will not sign this petition because it presumes to know that he is guilty as charged. No one would promote putting a civilian in jail without a proper trial.

    I would sign a petition that puts pressure on the Army to do a complete investigation (apparently they didn’t have enough evidence in 2010 to declare him AWOL or a deserter), though I don’t think one is needed. I do think action will be taken.

    From http://thinkprogress.org/world/2014/06/03/3444080/obama-blasts-critics-for-politicizing-bergdahls-release-we-still-get-an-american-soldier-backperiod/

    “However, General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, repudiated the notion that certain prisoners of war or hostages are not patriotic enough to be rescued, writing on Facebook that “the questions about this particular soldier’s conduct are separate from our effort to recover ANY U.S. service member in enemy captivity.” He added that while Bergdahl should be considered “innocent until proven guilty,” the Army’s leaders “will not look away from misconduct if it occurred.”

    That sentiment is shared by veterans and POW groups. “We hope the Department of Defense does a complete investigation of the circumstances surrounding Sgt. Bergdahl’s initial disappearance and take whatever steps are warranted by the findings of that investigation,” American Legion National Commander Daniel Dellinger said in a statement.

    “It’s totally premature for anyone to be jumping to conclusions until more is known, clearly he is undergoing some medical treatment and evaluation now and until a thorough investigation is done, I just think it’s inappropriate to be speculating on the circumstances that nobody knows much about,” Ann Mills-Griffiths, Chairman of the Board of the National League of POW/MIA Families, told ThinkProgress.”

    • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      In 2010 the Pentagon found him guilty.

      • Linda

        Hmm, no, they never made any kind of guilty verdict.

        “The military investigation was broader than a criminal inquiry, this official said, and it didn’t formally accuse Bergdahl of desertion. In interviews, members of his unit portrayed him as a naive, “delusional” person who thought he could help the Afghan people by leaving his army post, the official said.”

          *sigh*

          “A Pentagon investigation concluded in 2010 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his unit,” = guilty

          aka no longer under the “innocent until proven guilty”. Court martial, when it happens, and it better happen, will be a formality.

          • Linda

            **double sigh** Not according to General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Look, the reason you should sign the petition is because it will demonstrate to the administration that people ARE interested in this issue and that people are aware. That it won’t be so easily spun or swept under the rug.

            You making a grand statement about not signing because of your principles is utterly wasted and useless. Punishment isn’t up to the president. But if enough people sign they will be forced to respond. That’s it.

            A response about how it will be up to the military to decide how to go forward, etc. The more people who sign, the more the administration will have to acknowledge the concern/outrage. Simple, logical, easy.

          • Linda

            If the petition initiator had meant to “demonstrate to the admin that people ARE interested…” s/he would have written it as such; but s/he didn’t…it clearly states a presumption of guilt.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            And? So? That negates exactly zero of what I said.

          • Linda

            You were trying to justify why the petition was worded as it was…I was disputing that.

            No I wasn’t. Not even a little bit. I couldn’t care less about justifying their wording. The wording is their problem.

            The only thing I was “trying” to do was explain what would happen if enough people sign the petition. Pretty much exactly what I said. No hidden agenda there. I don’t bother with subtext. Waste of my time.

            Kudos to you because when I shared what I know about the administration and politicians in general those on my Facebook friends list segregated themselves into three groups….. the ones that unfriended me, the ones that blocked my timeline and the ones that occasionally “Like” their approval.

            General Dempsey’s OPINION about innocent until proven guilty is rather irrelevant. That doesn’t change the facts of the pentagon report/conclusion.

          • Linda

            Well, until a court-martial occurs, whether or not the Pentagon concluded he walked away is irrelevant too.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Do you understand how evidence works?

            Frankly, I’m getting the impression that you don’t understand the difference between fact and opinion.

          • Linda

            Evidence doesn’t work; it’s presented and argued. So, how do you reconcile with that Pentagon official’s statement: “The military investigation was broader than a criminal inquiry, this official said, and it didn’t formally accuse Bergdahl of desertion.”

            This is from the article I already linked to earlier in this thread.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Seriously? You are actually going to nitpick the use of the word “work”? Something which is, again, entirely irrelevant? Or did you truly not understand the point of the question?

            Do you understand the difference between facts and opinion, or no?

            There isn’t anything to “reconcile”. Their investigation encompassed more than the average criminal investigation. That’s a GOOD thing. As for not formally accusing Bergdahl in 2010, there was no point. He wasn’t here.

            This really isn’t difficult to figure out. It’s pretty obvious.

          • Linda

            They didn’t accuse him because he wasn’t here. OK, whatever works for you.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Yes, it does work for me. Logic and presumption of performance usually does.

            There are further logical conclusions to reach regarding why they didn’t bring charges at that time. If only you’d think about it for a bit.

            Like, not rocking the boat while Bergdahl was still being held.

            Not wanting to make specific charges a matter of public record and show their hand too soon.

            Etc.

            C’mon. You must have the ability to rationally consider the angles.

          • Linda

            Yes, all angles can be considered. Yet, all would still be speculative.

            Not criticizing it at all; just said that it is still speculative.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Okay. Then what was the point of posting the obvious?

            Of course. You mean nothing to me, why would I lie? Lying is yet another tedious waste of time.

            Just a suggestion, but you might enjoy life more if your first instinct is to give people the benefit of the doubt rather than knee-jerk assume people are dishonest and insincere. That’s a pretty negative way to exist.

          • Linda

            Believing that you were being sincere about a stupid question you posed would demand suspending disbelief.

            If you don’t, I’m sure someone will.

          • drw

            It seems to me as if they were giving ol’ berggy the benefit of the doubt and considering the possible harm to morale and the administration had they not pursued a “Broader than a criminal inquiry”. It means they were considering the whole picture, cause, effect, you know, what would happen had they charged him in absentia. They had to consider the probable shitstorm had his actions become known, which they would automatically have been had the military not chosen to leave it where it was. I mean, considering the actual soldiers who were killed and injured trying to recover him, the disclosure of another possible muzzy sympathizer in the military, stuff like that.
            You haven’t crowed about having been personally involved in the investigation so I presume you also weren’t privy to why the investigators chose to end where they did. Your entire argument hinges on the fact that no charges were filed (” it didn’t formally accuse Bergdahl of desertion”), it doesn’t necessarily follow that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to do so.

          • Linda

            That point is this: no one knows for sure. I’ve copied two paragraphs of my initial post:

            That sentiment is shared by veterans and POW groups. “We hope the Department of Defense does a complete investigation of the circumstances surrounding Sgt. Bergdahl’s initial disappearance and take whatever steps are warranted by the findings of that investigation,” American Legion National Commander Daniel Dellinger said in a statement.

            “It’s totally premature for anyone to be jumping to conclusions until more is known, clearly he is undergoing some medical treatment and evaluation now and until a thorough investigation is done, I just think it’s inappropriate to be speculating on the circumstances that nobody knows much about,” Ann Mills-Griffiths, Chairman of the Board of the National League of POW/MIA Families, told ThinkProgress.”

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Your point is invalid. That first paragraph does not in any way support your assertion that “no one knows for sure”. All it does is say they hope the DoD investigates.

            The 2nd paragraph implies that not enough is known. Which is obviously easily dismissed by the fact that enough was known for the Pentagon to conclude that Bergdahl is a deserter.

            And I’m being generous by not completely dismissing your post considering you’re using thinkprogress, which is a known liberal publication that is very biased and has been shown to twist and fib, as your source.

          • Linda

            Bottom-line: Nothing is going to happen until he is returned to the states and the military will proceed according to SOP.

            Now, isn’t that nice that you are being generous because you think TP is “very biased.” Kind of like the tweet by the Fox chick today about Bergdahl renouncing his citizenship. When I followed that up, it was the news we’d already heard: that someone says he left a note suggesting that he wanted to renounce. In the meantime, The Blaze and Michelle Malkin both have published articles with the title implying that he definitely wrote a note saying he wanted to renounce. Biased, I wonder.

          • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

            Again, you state the obvious. Of course nothing is going to happen until he is returned. Or, more specifically, released by the doctors.

            As for the bias, umm, the tweet by some Fox chick has zero to do with me or my being generous. Nor does referencing The Blaze or Michelle Malkin have anything to do with me.

            I’ve never put forth that those people are not biased. They obviously are. As is thinkprogress.

            Would you please stay on point and limit your responses to things that are not obvious but are relevant. Thanks.

          • Linda

            Why, yes, “Ms. Arbitrator of What’s On Point,” I’ll be sure to do just for you.

            You’re welcome!

          • drw

            The statements of those who were with him immediately preceding his desertion and that an investigation was, in fact, undertaken without confirmation of innocence is sufficient evidence that he should be formally charged now that he’s available to answer. That no formal charges were filed at the conclusion of the investigation means nothing.
            FYI, quoting thinkprogress is never a good tactic if your objective is to convince anyone with more than a fleeting acquaintance with reality of the validity of your argument.

          • Linda

            Are you a JAG officer? If yes, I’ll accept your statement that no formal charges mean nothing. If not…

            See my reply to Kristine about TP.

          • drw

            In other words, you haven’t a cogent response to my post and to avoid further intercourse you choose to disregard it’s validity. Libspeak 101, I give it a 2.1 for originality and 3.2 for execution.

          • Linda

            Hmmm, I thought it was pretty cogent: clear and to the point.

          • drw

            Yes, you would. Because it’s perfectly reasonable to ignore an antagonists main point and choose a supporting comment to base your deflection on.

          • Linda

            Unless you are a JAG officer, I will take the word of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff over yours.

            BTW, personally, I believe that his platoon believe what they say. I think it’s highly unlikely that they would be suffering from group hysteria. What we don’t know is how the Pentagon investigation team in 2013 took their comments. All they would say is that it is clear he walked away. They did not say that he intended to stay away.

          • drw

            I guess I must have missed the part where General Dempsey made reference to the meaning of the lack of formal charges at the conclusion of the investigation. Perhaps you could enlighten me as to how he contradicted my statement.
            If you truly believe the statements of bergdhals squad mates you cannot but believe that he must answer to the charges. To dismiss them without merit is unreasonable regardless how the investigation team “took them”. There is/was sufficient evidence to suggest the possibility that bergdhal deserted. Whether that proves to be the case or not the American people have a right to investigate and know the truth. We absolutely owe it to those who fought and died to find out and if it turns out that we traded 5 terrorists for a deserter then we’ve dishonored every soldier who’s ever served our country.
            It’s beyond me how anyone with even the tiniest amount of honor and dignity could find justification to allow this to be swept under the rug. You’ve been arguing all day about fairness and not jumping to conclusions, basically arguing in defense of bergdhal and allowing the status to remain quo. I’m not sure why, you seem intelligent enough, maybe you should try thinking about how you’d feel if one of bergdhals squad mates were your brother or sister or child and they placed their lives in his hands only to find that he’d taken his hands with him on a walkabout. Whatever his intention afterwards, the fact remains that he left his post of his own volition and at the time showed no regard for the safety and well being of his country or compatriots.

          • Linda

            OK, I copied his statement out of my first post today for your convenience:

            “However, General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, repudiated the notion that certain prisoners of war or hostages are not patriotic enough to be rescued, writing on Facebook that “the questions about this particular soldier’s conduct are separate from our effort to recover ANY U.S. service member in enemy captivity.” He added that while Bergdahl should be considered “innocent until proven guilty,” the Army’s leaders “will not look away from misconduct if it occurred.”

            “Innocent until proved guilty” is what contradicts your statements. Those soldiers’ testimony will be required, I’m sure. I’m also guessing that his attorney would want to cross-examine them.

            Wow, you can’t even see that your bias against liberals clouds your vision and interpretation of what I’ve said. I absolutely did NOT propose that the issue be swept under the rug. All I’ve commented on are people’s clamoring to have him prosecuted, as stated in the petition.

            His actions should be examined. If he did, in fact, desert, he should be punished appropriately. If he aided and abetted the Taliban, he should be found guilty of treason.

            There’s an element of AWOL/desertion that discusses if one walks away there also has to be intention to stay away. Hence, the 30-day rule; I learned that after I mistakenly said AWOL to desertion was automatic after 30 days. Because he was in enemy hands, they have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

          • drw

            Innocent until proven guilty has no bearing on the veracity of my statement “That no formal charges were filed at the conclusion of the investigation means nothing.” it means what it says. I was simply refuting your argument that no formal charges indicated innocence or negated the need for charges to be brought.
            My bias against liberals is justified. The leaders you’ve chosen, the causes you support or denigrate, the liberties you wish to usurp, and the overall hypocrisy you spew leaves me no choice. I love my country and as my Father did I believe in my fellow citizen’s ability and God given right to chose and achieve his own destiny. Does this cause me to misunderstand your intent? I think not, You started today posting your refusal to sign the petition and stating your reasons to include it’s perceived presumption of guilt and your conjecture that the 2010 investigation lacked sufficient evidence to formally charge desertion. You’ve made it clear that you believe that had that investigation proven desertion at that time that they would have charged and tried bergdhal then. My point has been and remains that your presumption is in error. Please review our exchange.
            Bergdhal should absolutely and without delay be charged and tried for desertion at the very least. That he was in enemy hands should have no bearing until it is determined whether he was there by choice. He should not be accorded any rank advancement or back pay normally due an American POW nor any other consideration until he proves his fealty to this country. If/when he is convicted of desertion, he should suffer the maximum penalty allowed. If/when it becomes known that his intentions were to give aid and comfort to the enemies of his country, he should be executed in as swift and efficient manner possible. Further, if/when it becomes known that the CIC and SecDef had foreknowledge of his actual status (deserter and/or treason) and purposely chose to release 5 enemy combatants without consent of congress, they should share a similar fate.
            If/when he is proven innocent of all charges by a fair and impartial jury he should be immediately released and re-united with his family.

          • Linda

            I don’t agree that “innocent until proven guilty” has no bearing on the truth of your statement. You don’t have any “inside” information to support your contention; it’s just your opinion as mine is simply an opinion too.

            I’m sorry you don’t like it that I agree with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the American Legion National Commander, and the Chairman of the Board of the National League of POW/MIA Families that he is innocent until proven guilty.
            It’s interesting that you think you know better than they do.

          • drw

            Then you misunderstand the assertion, I never claimed to have any more information than you or anyone else. The simple fact is that the investigation was concluded without charging *or* clearing bergdhal of charges. That it didn’t prove guilt is no less important than that it didn’t prove innocence. That’s the extent of my argument regarding that investigation. That General Dempsey chose not to cite that investigation as proof either way lends credence to my assessment.

            My feeling regarding your understanding of the statements of those you cited is benign. You are free and capable to interpret their remarks, I was merely suggesting that you might have read more into them than another would.

            It’s more interesting that you would suggest that. As you said, I don’t have nearly as much information as one would expect General Dempsey to have. I do however, have some experience and a little bit of common sense and feel quite comfortable in my assessment of this particular situation.

            The indisputable facts prove an investigation is warranted and any attempt to deny or delay an investigation at this point indicates an unwillingness to have the truth come to light. Now, I don’t know about you but, it’s been my experience that when a politician wishes to obscure something, it’s a pretty good indication that they were doing something they probably shouldn’t have.

          If you are gone more than 30 consecutive days, you are automatically labeled a deserter by the military. Automatically. The next step is prosecution. No questions asked.

          He clearly walked away, starting the clock. If he had been captured from his unit, then it would be a different story and no one would be talking desertion.

          • Linda

            Actually, I think that one would be labelled AWOL instead of a deserter. Unless you’re a JAG officer and can explain things accurately, I’ll rely on the Chief of Staff knowing better than you.

    I have a question regarding the law. We all know the law requires the president to inform Congress if anyone is going to be released from Gitmo, 30-days notice.

    We also know that when Obama signed the law he said it was unconstitutional. Which isn’t up to him of course, but he probably thinks it is.

    Okay, so hypothetically speaking…IF Obama were brought up on charges for breaking the 30-day law and then Obama sued uh.. himself? The administration? Don’t know who would be sued exactly, but I digress. Say the suit traveled through the courts, reached the Supremes and they did rule that the 30-day law was unconstitutional, would that automatically get the charges against Obama dismissed?

    Much like prisoners on death row in the 70’s were commuted to life in prison because of the ruling on the death penalty.

    Anyone know the nuances of that sort of situation?

    Obama already said that Bergdahl has been punished enough so get ready for an executive order OR simply a verbal order not to court martial Bergdahl.

  • wil_robel

    I fully expect a full pardon for Bergdahl from Obama.

    • Tigerspike

      He’d have to be prosecuted first, which I doubt Obama’s administration will pursue.

      • Tom Winegar

        The military doesn’t need the jihadist-in-chief’s permission to prosecute.

        • AZWarrior

          Unfortunately, the President Constitutionally has absolute unlimited power of pardon.

          • http://gathman.org/vitae CustomDesigned

            It is always better that the guilty go free, than that the innocent be condemned. The Presidential/Gubernatorial pardon was a wise feature. As is the right to a trial by jury, who can ignore unjust laws.

          • AZWarrior

            I agree CD, I meant “unfortunately” in regard to this instance.

    • globalcrap

      A firing squad would be in order for this JIHAD traitor.

    • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

      I fully expect “Preezy of the United Steezy” Barack Hussein Obama to hold a White House ceremony wherein he gives the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the Muslim convert deserter, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, with the head-traitor himself, Secretary of State John Kerry, giving a follow-up speech about Bravery, Honor, Patriotism and Love of Country. I practically guarantee it.

    Heal from your wounds, Bergdahl.
    Then, face the court martial that you deserve. Dishonorable discharge is in order.

    • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      And the brig.

      • drw

        For desertion, okay. For treason a .45 to the brainpan.

        • http://www.GONINERS.com/ Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          Treason requires two direct witnesses. Very difficult to prove. I doubt they would even pursue that angle, unfortunately.

          • drw

            I don’t expect it either, some of the speculation suggests the possibility though and I thought I’d make it clear, just in case.

  • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

    Signed the White House petition… absolutely. Almost 11,050 sigs with 27 days left.

  • Tom Winegar

    I signed and placed the link on my Facebook with a little note to my family that I expect them to sign also.

  • chuck

    Its time for the American people to seriously consider taking our country back….this whole prisoner exchange makes me sick, and then the circumstances by wich he deserted……we the people need to grow some balls and stand up to this oppressive govt before its all too late…………………

    • Tom Winegar

      Let’s make this as easy as possible for those that are busy:

      Feel free to copy and paste if you like:
      “If it turns out that Bowe Bergdahl deserted I expect him to be
      prosecuted. To many people have suffered and died due to his behavior
      and he must be punished to the fullest extent of the law.”

      The Senate, just pick your state and send a message:

      The House, again pick your state and send a message:

    Is there a way to sue the Bergdahl family?

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    Obama will just ignore the petition. He won’t allow a fellow Taliban supporter to be punished.

  • RevnantDream

    Well at least Obama has side tracked the VA out rage with a new one . In the end that’s all that counts to the Dhimmicrats. Just more misdirection. Plus Obama got 5 of the worst terrorists free for allah, to make more human sacrifice for their blood god.. Next stop the blind sheik being released like the Lockerby Bomber with fake cancer, that a failed operation to do so derailed in Benghazi.
    This mob administration after all loves Islam.

  • Beentheremovedaway

    I never wanted to put my name on that stupid WH petition site before now! I am sending this info out to all on my email list. Those of you that still have an open facebook account please blast this out on there!

  • Freedom?

    hussein should have been impeached years ago. And now so must the legislators.

  • LRW63

    Sign it if it makes you feel better…but Obama will do whatever he pleases.

  • Lyle E Long

  • Vinchenz

    Now there is a real hero! Too bad his injuries are the direct result of a fake hero with a fake rank.

  • Leadrunner

    Sgt Allen, it is a shame that you are now being called an Obama hater. OOrah, brother. I hope they burn the little SOB.

  • Joann Roxbury

    Since improving our own skills enhances our ability to contribute to our friends and fellows, we should strive to make the most of them.

  • AZWarrior

    At some point, he will have to be impeached no matter what color his skin is.
