A Crying Shame: The Army’s Disgraceful Failure

A deserter and traitor who became sympathetic to the Taliban, a sworn enemy of the United States, walked free on Friday.
Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion, misbehavior before the enemy and endangering his comrades.  Prosecutors in his case were requesting a 14-year prison sentence.  Instead he was fined, reduced to the rank of E1 and dishonorably discharged.
The Taliban used Bergdahl as a bargaining chip to negotiate his surrender to American authorities in exchange for five high-ranking Taliban prisoners, one of whom had “directly associated” with 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden. The swap was conducted in secret with no notice provided to members of Congress.
Capt. Nina Banks, a defense attorney for this worthless piece of slime, said it “wouldn’t be justice to rescue Bergdahl from the Taliban only to place him in a cell now.  Sgt. Bergdahl has been punished enough.  He paid a bitter price for the choices he made,” she added.
A bitter price?
Tell that to the wife of National Guard MSgt. Mark Allen who was shot in the head during the search mission to locate Bergdahl and was left unable to speak and is paralyzed over much of this body rendering him unable to reach out and hold his 9-year-old daughter.
MSgt Allen is serving a life sentence trapped in a body that no longer functions because of this filthy traitor.
Yesterday’s actions in the Military Court Facility at Fort Bragg are a slap in the face to every American and most particularly to those grievously wounded while seraching for him.
According to Military.com the lead defense attorney, Eugene Fidell, said he wants him to receive the Prisoner of War medal. It wasn't immediately clear whether Bergdahl's defense team plans to push for the award as part of the process to appeal his dishonorable discharge.
