By Joshua Rhett Miller, Published July 02, 2014, FoxNews.com
U.S. Army soldiers who were serving with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl when he left his post and wound up in the hands of the Taliban say no one has contacted them, even though military brass are currently conducting a new investigation into the case.
Platoon Mate on Bergdahl's Return to Duty: 'We Don't Get It'
Tuesday, 15 Jul 2014 01:58 PM, By Courtney Coren
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl returned to active duty at a Texas Army base, and former Army Sgt. Matt Vierkant, one of his former platoon mates, says he doesn't understand why the military made the decision to allow it.
"It's really confusing and perplexing to me, with the several different allegations against him," Vierkant told J.D. Hayworth and John Bachman on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Tuesday.
Author Brad Thor Previously Made Controversial Prediction About Bergdahl Swap — Stunning Report Seemingly Proves He Was Right

“This is why we don’t negotiate with terrorists,” he told TheBlaze. “The Haqqanis got their money, the Taliban got five of their guys out — and we got a deserter. It’s a disaster. And now it set’s a terrible precedent and terrorists will be incentivized to grab as many Americans as they can.”
Thor explained that the Haqqanis, the group who actually held Bergdahl, are the “Sopranos of the Islamic world” and mostly interested in money, making his prediction not so far-fetched.
Is nervous Obama White House holding Bergdahl report hostage?
By Lt. Col. Bill Cowan (ret.), Published January 16, 2015, FoxNews.com
Last Sunday, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, indicated that he expected a decision “fairly soon” on whether the Army will court martial Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for allegedly deserting his post in Afghanistan, or has cleared him, paving the way for separation from the service and back pay in excess of $200,000. Moreover, a decision to clear Bergdahl may well open the door for him to be designated a former prisoner of war, ensuring him substantial monthly pay, medical and educational benefits for the rest of his life.

Report: Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to Be Charged for Desertion — Here Are the Details
Jan. 26, 2015 9:28pm Jason Howerton
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was reportedly held captive by Taliban militants for five years, will be charged with desertion for leaving his post, according to sources of retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer. Bergdahl was only released after President Barack Obama negotiated with the terrorists, agreeing to release five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay.
Shaffer, senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, told Bill O’Reilly on Monday night that his sources have confirmed the Army has concluded its investigation and Bergdahl’s lawyer has been given a “charge sheet” informing him of the desertion charge.
The official Army line is that no decision has been made. I ain't buying it.
What I am buying is that the Obama Administration is doing their level best to suppress this finding by any means possible. But the UCMJ isn't one of those things that is supposed to be subject to civilian review on a micro level. That is, while the civilian government passes the UCMJ (in that the authority for it flows from same) on a case-by-case basis it is not discretionary within the purview of the executive -- including the CIC.
Officials: Detainee swapped for Bergdahl suspected of militant activities
By Barbara Starr, CNN Pentagon Correspondent, Updated 8:20 PM ET, Thu January 29, 2015
Washington (CNN)The U.S. military and intelligence community now suspect that one of the five Taliban detainees released from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in May of last year has attempted to return to militant activity from his current location in Qatar by making contact with suspected Taliban associates in Afghanistan, multiple officials tell CNN.
The development has led to an ongoing debate inside the administration about whether there is a new threat from this man, and potentially the other four.
Hillary Called Taliban Five No Threat to US in 2014
Thursday, 29 Jan 2015 08:05 PM, By Greg Richter
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in June 2014 said that the five Taliban leaders released from Guantanamo days earlier posed no threat to the United States.
On Thursday, CNN reported that one of the men is believed to have returned to terrorism.
In a "Today" show interview on June 11, less than two weeks after the so-called Taliban 5 were released in exchange for captured U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Clinton said that she had been involved in talks during her tenure to release the five, and that Bergdahl's release had been part of the equation.

Barack Obama is FURIOUS After Sarah Palin Told Him Four Words: “YOU HAVE NO…”
Editor, Political Insider
Now we know that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who went AWOL, did so on purpose. President Barack Obama is reviving heavy criticism from both parties for his illegal swap of 5 high-profile terrorist detainees in exchange for Bergdahl – a man who dishonored his uniform and his country.
Six soldiers died while looking for Bergdahl, but Obama hasn’t honored their memory. And if you weren’t already convinced Obama loathes the military, please note how he has remained strangely silent about ‘American Sniper’ and Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, even after Michelle let her opinion be known.
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, a conservative champion, has always stood proudly with our men and women in uniform. And she went on Facebook to tell Obama just how tired she is of his disgraceful attitude toward the military. She doesn’t hold back:
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is being asked to plead to a charge to avoid a lengthy trial that might embarrass the Obama administration, retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer told Fox News.
Shaffer had previously predicted Bergdahl would be charged with desertion by mid-March for walking away from his base in Afghanistan in 2009. But in an appearance on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" on Wednesday, Shaffer said prosecutors now are hoping to avoid a trial.

Washington (CNN)Military officials are set to charge Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy for leaving his post in Afghanistan before being captured and held captive for five years, according to Bergdahl's attorney and a congressional source.
Unprecedented? Not so much, I had to sign a couple 'non-disclosures' back in the day, but that was for national security reasons... not covering for a taliban loving traitor.
On a side note: McChrystal is a POS who should be brought up on charges of aiding and abetting. When this hit the press upon the traitors release, he SHOULD have come forward with the truth... very telling of the man's character, letting fellow soldiers be thrown to the wolves for getting the word out.
Bergdahl Teammates Asked to Stay Quiet About Desertion With Non-Disclosure Agreements
Katie Pavlich | May 29, 2015
According to a new report from Fox News' Catherine Herridge, teammates of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl were asked to sign non-disclosure agreements years ago after discussing his desertion with the Joint Chiefs Chairman in Afghanistan.
According to Herridge's reporting and General Bob Scales, asking soldiers to sign non-disclosure agreements is unprecedented.
As five Taliban officials walk free, Bergdahl deal stink grows
By Post Editorial Board, May 30, 2015 | 8:00pm
Come Monday, the five senior Taliban officials sprung from Guantanamo in the trade for accused Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl, could all be walking free.
Free to rejoin their terrorist comrades in jihad against America — as at least three of them reportedly have already tried to do.
It’s a reminder of just how bad a deal President Obama struck to free Bergdahl, the man the White House then hailed as a hero but who now faces criminal charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy — charges that could keep him behind bars for life.
Indeed, retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal revealed last week for the first time that he’d been informed almost immediately after Bergdahl’s 2009 capture that the soldier “walked off [his base] intentionally.”
Obama, the Dems AND the GOP are some traitorous POS's... a TWO BILLION dollar 'payment' cannot go unnoticed.
GREEN BERET HERO FACES COURT MARTIAL: He Reported on Illegal Ransom Paid for Bowe Bergdahl
Saturday, June 13, 2015, By Sara Noble
A Green Beret and a real American war hero, Lt. Col. Jason Amerine, exposed illegal and amoral activities by the Obama administration worthy of a tinpot dictatorship that took place over the Bergdahl swap. A complaint about an illegal ransom of about $2 billion paid for Bergdahl in addition to swapping five dangerous Taliban thugs implicated the DOD and the DOJ.
Amerine told Congress, which is well within his legal rights. In fact, it was his duty.
Because this brave man told the truth, he is facing a court-martial.
Military sure has changed, get charged with deserting your post during active combat and under suspicion of collaborating with the enemy... and you still get unrestricted leave.
Bowe Bergdahl found during California pot raid, released by officials
Published July 24, 2015, FoxNews.com
Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who was released in a prisoner exchange in Afghanistan for five Taliban detainees, wound up in the middle of a pot raid earlier this week in northern California.
Captian Greg Van Patten with the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office told Fox News Thursday that the county’s marijuana eradication team encountered Bergdahl on Tuesday while serving a search warrant on a home in Redwood City, Calif.
He should have been stood against a wall and executed by now. It pisses me off to no ends that this traitor is still walking around free... But with a traitorus jihadist loving usurper in office, it is what it is.
The lawyer representing Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who left his infantry post and was held by the Taliban for five years, says callous statements Donald Trump is making about his client are threatening the soldier's right to a fair trial.
In a town hall this week, the GOP presidential candidate called Bergdahl a "dirty, rotten traitor" and denounced the Obama administration's decision to exchange Bergdahl in 2014 for five Taliban leaders from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Trump also claimed six U.S. troops died while searching for Bergdahl.
U.S. colonel: Tapes show Bergdahl joined Taliban 'Yet we still traded him for 5 terrorists, had a White House ceremony'
Published: 09/22/2015 at 3:59 PM
A retired military colonel, now a Fox News analyst, has dropped a bombshell in the case of Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant held for five years by the Taliban who is charged with desertion and misbehaving before the enemy.
Retired Col. David Hunt says Bergdahl actually joined the Taliban, and recordings prove it.
Further, he notes the U.S. government has failed to make use of that evidence in the case against Bergdahl, who was returned to the U.S. in a stunning trade for five top terrorists held at Guantanamo.
Obama's and his military minions want to let the frigging traitor walk... Just one more of the many acts of treason for the obamanation.

“My only conclusion is these prosecutors are under some serious pressure through the chain of command,” he said. “I suspect the chain of command is under some pressure from the administration. I don’t know that for a fact, but what else can you conclude? These are military prosecutors. They know the seriousness of these charges.”
The decision to refer the case of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl to a general court martial on charges of desertion by Gen. Robert B. Abrams, the head of Army Forces Command at Ft. Bragg, N.C., shows there remains at least one general not cowed by President Obama’s purge of command officers deemed insufficiently subservient to his policies of appeasement and unilateral disarmament.

Bergdahl's lawyers ask for charges to be dropped over McCain comments
Reuters, 1 Aug 2016
(Reuters) - The legal team for U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl on Monday asked to have the charges against the former prisoner of war dismissed, arguing comments made by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain violated his due process rights.
Bergdahl, 30, is facing a court-martial with a potential life sentence on charges of desertion and endangerment of U.S. troops after he walked away from his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and became a Taliban prisoner for five years.
Defense attorneys argued in a motion filed on Monday that comments made by McCain and the committee's general counsel, Steve Barney, have unduly influenced his case. The filing quotes McCain as saying last October: "If it comes out that (Bergdahl has no punishment, we're going to have a hearing in the Senate Armed Services Committee."

Military Judge Gives Bowe Bergdahl A Lot Of Bad News
Posted at 7:31 pm on July 8, 2017 by streiff
I missed this in the tumult of the past week but good news is always welcome.
When Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was released by the Taliban in 2014 he was feted by the Obama administration despite ample evidence that he was actually a deserter. His parent were guests at a Rose Garden ceremony with Obama, himself. Habitual and reflexive liar Susan Rice took to the Sunday shows to reprise her bravura performance after Benghazi, in this case she told a lie so monstrous that even CNN’s Jim Acosta, who never saw an Obama-related knob shoe he couldn’t polish, was shocked:
The Traitor should have been put against a wall and shot for treason, right next to the Obamanation and his minions... ALL of the islam loving scumbags caused the deaths of many American troops and civilians.
Bowe Bergdahl expected to plead guilty to deserting his post
By Kathleen Joyce, Fox News
Bergdahl expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty later this month to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy rather than face trial for leaving his Afghanistan post in 2009, The Associated Press reported.
Two sources said the Idaho native would submit the plea later this month and sentencing would start Oct. 23. The AP did not name the sources.

Ralph Peters: Bergdahl sentencing isn't about him -- It's about setting an example for any future traitors
By Ralph Peters, 27 Oct 2017
It matters not in the least to those who believe this country is not worth defending that honorable service members were gravely wounded in the stop-everything-else search for Bergdahl that paralyzed our war effort in Afghanistan. And it certainly doesn’t matter that those who were on the ground and involved in that hunt believe that as many as six of their comrades died looking for a man whom our military knew from the start was a deserter (a four-star general confirmed it to me within 48 hours of Bergdahl’s desertion, but would not say so publicly—a moral coward who, ironically, got his own comeuppance a few years later).
All that matters now for the left is that Bergdahl “suffered enough” during his five years under Taliban control.
Of course, those wounded because of him will suffer all of their lives. The dead will never return to those they love. But none of that matters. For the left, that military judge must let Bergdahl go free on humanitarian grounds—thus redeeming Obama’s festive Rose Garden welcome for Ma and Pa Taliban.
