Just deserts for Bergdahl
Placeholder Image
The recent release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from five years of Taliban captivity raises serious questions, so far not fully answered.First, did then-private Bergdahl willfully abandon his combat post, leaving his weapon, body armor, and night vision goggles behind? All available evidence points to that conclusion, including Pentagon reports and comments from his fellow soldiers. Members of his platoon have been most critical of his conduct, asserting he did desert his post, dishonoring them, the Army, and our nation.Whether Bergdahl is a deserter or not is a question of fact.
