    Of course. Why believe soldiers when you can simply attack them?

    Explain why Bergdahl was promoted twice while captive, and why a Buddhist ballerina would join forces with the Taliban.

    Deflection. I'm not talking about Bergdahl's rank or why he walked away. I'm talking about you denigrating soldiers.

    EXACTLY what I was thinking last night watching the news.

    You need to do your own research...

    1. It is pretty standard to promote those captured according to time in service in combat conditions...

    2. BB pretty much told you why in his letters, emails, and other writings, and words.

    This is so utterly pathetic, but not surprising coming from the left. One of the main tactics is to smear people, and that is what you are attempting. The military looked into this YEARS ago and determined the guy walked off on his own. It's a FACT.

    The military determined that he probably walked off, yes. What else do you have?

    I did my research. His soldier critics claim that he was suspected of desertion and TREASON shortly after he disappeared. How does that translate into two promotions?

    Let's see, I have someone putting out a lot of ignorance and partisan BS, trying to smear US Soldiers on this thread.

    Why don't you ask the Army if you're so confused?
