Army Sgt. Bergdahl pleading guilty to desertion, misbehavior
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told a military judge on Monday that he's pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
"I understand that leaving was against the law," said Bergdahl, whose decision to walk off his remote post in Afghanistan in 2009 prompted intense search and recovery missions, during which some of his comrades were seriously wounded.
"At the time, I had no intention of causing search and recovery operations," Bergdahl said, but he added that now he does understand that his decision prompted efforts to find him....
Adam McManus informed us on his News programme on SA that tragically Master Sergeant Bergdahl came from a good evangelical home, an Orthodox Presbyterian family, obviously rebelled, as a young man, lived for 2 years in a Buddhist monastery, joined the Army, where on his posting to Afghanistan, he apparently converted to Islam, and then deserted his post, where he was picked up by the Taliban, and then that terrible president, Obama traded dangerous Taliban prisoners to retrieve him.
If Hilary Clinton had been elected he would have been honourably discharged by the Leftist / Islamic establishment and been feted everywhere as a hero.
I have a feeling though, under President Trump, he will get a lifetime in a Federal military jail instead! It is fortunate for him that the traditional penalty of death for desertion and treason is not still in force!!
Right Jim, and what am I hearing from the left...crickets. Nice job, Mr Obama, and as always, silence, but if the Trumpster had made the exchange, the historic exchange, I wonder how things would be going down right about now? I hope you're doing well, but sure don't like how things go down with sis. Ladybug.

Beyond condemning the deal itself, Trump also verbally attacked Bergdahl repeatedly, calling him a traitor and a deserter.
