    Bergdahl has a record of leaving his post going all the way back to training camp for the purpose of taking walks. If he was nabbed on one of these walks by the Taliban then that doesn't make him a deserter. These soldiers are being hysterical in blaming Bergdahl for every death in Paktika. The Pentagon has said there is no evidence to support their claims of men being killed as the result of a search for him and frankly they shouldn't even be out there complaining that they had to their duty as soldiers. That report you mentioned, the AR 15-6, described his entire unit as undisciplined and lacking in accountability so it will be interesting to see what else comes to light not only about Bergdahl, but about the men who are trying to smear him. Something stinks about this and the stench is emanating from the men trying to whip up a lynch mob in the media.

    Ah yes. Smear the troops to protect the POTUS. Disgusting.

    Actually, that would make him a deserter. But let's wait for the official investigation. Meanwhile.

    No, it just means he abandoned his post and there is a distinct difference as has been pointed out already by the military.

    First of all, there is nothing to protect the President from. In terms of the troops, I find it strange that they had nothing but praise for Bergdahl during the investigation of his disappearance but now, five years later, seem to be frantically attacking him and trying to cast doubt on his credibility in the media now that they know he is alive, rescued, and presently unable to defend himself. Why? What are they afraid he will say?

    I don't believe you have accurate information.

    As long ago as 2012 he was being called a deserter who caused the deaths of other soldiers.

    Mixed reaction to Bergdahl's recovery by service members ...

    5 days ago - Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the only American soldier held prisoner in ... Bergdahl were explored in a long online comment that was posted a year ago beneath ... He also said that troops accept that although their fellow service ...

    That link does nothing to exonerate Bergdahl. Please read the link at my last post. At least as far back as 2012 his fellow soldiers called him a deserter. Probably before that.

    It highlights how these men have drastically changed their tune since Bergdahl has been rescued.
