Bergdahl's Parents 'Really Hurt' by Allegations, Former Pastor Says
The parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was freed from five years in captivity at the hands of the Taliban in exchange for the release of five detainees at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, have been "really hurt" by allegations that he was a traitor, says a former family pastor.

"They have been really hurt," Pastor Phil Proctor of Sterling Presbyterian Church in Sterling, Virginia, told The Associated Press. "They're trying to keep their heads down."

The release of Bergdahl, who is now recovering at a military hospital in Germany, was announced last week, after which some members of Congress, his former platoon mates and other critics alleged that he was captured after walking away from his post. Some have also claimed that at least six soldiers died as part of efforts to save him. ...

If Bowe was of hampered abilities, that may be reason enough to work at extracting him from the Taliban. America has tried to protect its citizens who are valnerable (sp?)

pennned and Strat,
Once again you are right on the money. I may be a veteran, but I do not believe it is patriotic to blindly follow some globalist agenda that has nothing really to do with protecting our freedoms while at home we see that same globalist cabal stealing our liberties with an increasingly militarized police state. However, Bergdahl betrayed his buddies by walking off his post and for that he should be held accountable. I'm glad he's alive, but I don't believe he deserves a free pass. His captivity for 5 years was his own fault for deserting his post and good men died as a result.

Strat, I'm most of the way with you there. By perpetuating falsehoods they convince their boys who want to show their elders that they are good and strong (loyal type, good kids) and train them to believe its for their own agendas (freeing the world of a religion , safety )by sending out the best, weakening them tour after tour while the borders are a mess (you've seen the pictures of the masses of children at the texas border being stuffed into buildings?), the war machines given to the local police.... nothing can snap them out, until one day they see Nazi regime on their streets... I don't get it....

we do owe the military. we told them the lies. we did not advocate for them. we did not listen to those like pat tillman's family. we wanted our myths. they line up in va in az and refused treatment left at home to die, so many come back on psychotropics, brain injuries... oh, we owe them big time. a big apology. you can't send generations into wars, rotating deployments year after year, having to watch their back and get their buddies out of there, for the empire and not owe them big time.

its the churches and their pride and fear, they sent their own boys, the makers of the adventures know how to make the rhetoric, they faithfully comply.

no one should be complaining. messy causes make for messy outcomes. its been open source news for years now that us funds aq in Syria.
maybe he was brought up being taught that if he went in, he would "make the world safe" (his agenda) sure he is responsible for his decisions, but Obama seems at this point not to be inclined to see it that way. all those who were in the military should remember, he is the commander in chief....not them.
the Christian's choice is if they offer or not themselves and their children to the agenda.....and this is where the rubber meets the road....
The great lie is that any of it has anything to do with defending America,the Constitution,Freedom or any such thing,yet people believe the lie and surround as they do everything in an emotional matrix of flag waving,ceremony and the constant drone of how we the people owe so much to the military for protecting our freedoms and Constitution that are shrinking everyday.

Just a small PostScript here... it appears that the media is downplaying the accountability of Bergdahl in this situation to justify the release of the Taliban.... with so many puppet on so many strings, they are bound to get terribly tangled sooner or later.... but then we are to expect that sort of behavior from the world,riight?

I agree with Shane from SoCal commenting on how the media can project rock solid biased opinions... I agree also with his comment do we really know what happened.... if it were not for the interview that I saw with his personal commanding officer talking about the fact that he deserted his post, I would have no opinion at all. after listening to his commanding officer and fellow soldiers however, my heart was breaking for the families of the soldiers who lost their lives trying to save this man, rather than for the family who had their feelings hurt by ‚ÄĚcomments‚ÄĚ. As family reported to be Christian by their pastor, I exhort the Bergdahl family thru love in Christ to be humble and grateful for the return of their son and to be heartbroken and grateful to the family members that lost their sons in their attempt to rescue Bergdahl.... to be offended by comments is not of God... there are still rules to playing on a team, and if indeed Bergdahl did desert his post and bring about the death of those trying to rescue him, according to the rules there should be accountability... in a society where there is no accountability, playing the victim becomes the norm, and there is no longer truth.

When I was 18, I was asked at the last minute to go on a trip for the night to the desert with some friends. I had already committed to go out to dinner with my now wife, so I said " next time". Well... 8 guys went on the trip, 4 guys came home. It was a tragic car accident. My friend who was driving had drank the night before and got about 4 hours of sleep before waking up, starting the car, and off they went. Then tragedy. It was devastating to many people. It became a big local news story. And from that personal experience I had with a story taken by the media, I got a first hand glimpse of how through the media people form "rock solid opinions" on a situation they have no first hand knowledge about. Sorry if this offends some. But... do we really know what happened?

AMEN, Christine! Our military is an all volunteer force. Bergdahl was not drafted. And irregardless, he has NO EXCUSE whatsoever for deserting his post, especially in a time of war. By doing so, he put his fellow soldiers in further danger. If he didn't support the war he shouldn't have signed up. Once he signed up, he should've done his time like a man. He ought to thank God he didn't end up like Pvt. Slovik.

PS. By the way, Jim, I am a veteran, but even if I wasn't, as an American I have freedom of speech and so do those in the media who never were in the military.

I come from a huge military family, and everyone signed up for their tours of duty, just as Bergdahl did... every man and woman that enlist for combat understand the rules of the game... is very sad, but truthful to say, that Bergdal's situation was an occupational hazard... the men deserted his troops, and has blood on his hands for at least six man that died trying to rescue him... he is a fool, and the man that traded 5 murderous ungodly butchers for his release is a bigger fool yet... please put your sympathy cards back in your wallet...
the Bergdahl family has their son back, unlike the families of the soldiers that died trying to save him.... denial by his parents of his treasonous behavior does not change the truth.

I appreciate this Pastor Proctor being willing to stand by this couple as he has known them and ChristianPost for doing the interview. It is always helpful to hear from those who are involved.
