Read what he wrote on May 26th:
"Is there any mistreatment worse than sending the US military into a violent and unstable part of the world to conduct a search operation that is in no way connected to the defense of the United States? Feeling sorry for somebody is not a sufficient basis for sending American men and women into harm's way."
Jeez, its like he knew Bergdahl was going to be released and concocted this story! You've cracked the case!

Even in your rebuttal, you confirm note bene's article.The soldier who spoke on condition of anonymity agreed that it was “ludicrous” to lay 100 percent of the blame for the deaths at Sergeant Bergdahl’s feet, and he acknowledged that patrols were going to get hit in Paktika during fighting season anyway.
But, he said, the reason he and his colleagues are angry is that too often that summer, the purpose of their patrols into dangerous areas was not ordinary wartime work like reconnaissance, maintaining a security presence, or humanitarian projects, but rather “to go look for this guy.”
