    Certainly you're cynical. Now if this same Army had condemned him, I doubt you would be nearly so cynical.

Do you believe this man (Bergdahl) and the investigators / government that used him for a big media splash, the same regime that has lied over and over or do you believe the soldiers that claim he is a deserter and traitor to the nation? I know who I believe, and I suspect anyone that loves our current regime will believe opposite. Sad that the truth may never be known, but I can't take for granted anything that comes from this government.
    Why would you believe any one about something that you have no way of knowing the truth of? Instead of believing whoever it telling you what you want to hear, you should question and have doubts about every one.

    The Army doesn't "condemn" anyone. Either there's enough evidence for a court martial hearing or there is not. That nothing has yet happened also doesn't mean something won't. I'm cynical because I don't see much urgency here and that has political fingerprints all over it.

    Any clown that believes this is nothing more than hoping it all goes away by the White House (not to be confused with the military brass) is asking for a dunce label on their heads and forced to sit in a corner for the remainder of their lives. This White House are chalk full of liars, period! I'm just waiting for the headline, "Bergdahl, former POW, involved in work place violence, alleged to have bombed barracks killing 100's".

    Second, the investigation isn't over...nor should it be.

    I would consider this guy a danger and security risk until proven otherwise.
    Apparently the Pentagon involved in Bergdahl's situation has satisfied any of those concerns.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    So, you're "just sayin" I hope Bergdahl kills 100's of American services members? No, Dan, what I'm saying is that this clown has had more than enough time to become indoctrinated by an enemy of the US, and more than enough time to hide it well, reintegrate, and perhaps cause damage all in the name of Allah. It's not just plausible, it's likely. To what degree I'm not sure, hopefully I'm wrong, but this tells me that the Army, who's cherry picked yes-men doctors, and psychologists cleared this guy for active duty, are they themselves derelict insodoing.

    Dunno how much the Army has actually changed since 1991, but if this "hiking" which btw is not part of the article (is this REALLY the story they came up with? ) occurred back then, they'd be found guilty via court martial and DD'd so fast it'd make your head spin.
    After doing some checking your scoffing at danarhea's "hiking" claim was the correct reaction. Whatever "source" he plucked that little factoid from is so far off the scope as to rate as hysterical. In every meaning of the word. Seriously, what is it with posters at message boards? Can't be bothered to read what they post and then act as if what they did bolsters a contention, of theirs, that was born in the recesses of their own imagination.

    Like you I'm highly cynical of this claim he is fit for duty. Clearly this announcement has the same political fingerprints on it that have been present from the start of this matter. I've been following the story closely and my suspicion is becoming more and more simple. Bowe Bergdahl is just lucky he was an appealing political football for the administration.


    Anecdotally speaking, knowing staff at Fort. Sam and BAMC? The idea anyone recovers from these kinds events as rapidly as this announcement claims? Presents even more questions born of common sense and a none too naive view of political manipulation. As well as bucking prior claims about the usual length of "recovery" in situations like this.
    Back in U.S., Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl probably faces a long recovery*-*Los Angeles Times

    The "normal" and most healthy course would be not to call attention to the fact that he is moving about and interacting with the public/service members. That is if this was a "normal" situation. Privacy and sensitivity are the usual considerations being exercised by the excellent staff that helps soldiers reintegrate in San Antonio. That this announcement has been made at such a crucial and early point in Bergdahl's recovery/reintegration process? Just smacks of obvious political manipulation, unless one is just plain naive.


    Something is fishy in Denmark, with regard to this announcement. Outside of danarhea's rather creative take on the matter.

    This is what I'm thinking as well. To be tried he would have to be placed back onto active duty. I doubt the investigation is over, there is still many questions that need to be answered and they are probably gathering up testimony as well.

    I don't think this is over, nor should it be IMO.

    Again, as stated in the article, the investigation is not over.

    The Pentagon also said the Army was still investigating the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl's 2009 disappearance from his post in Afghanistan and subsequent capture by Taliban militants.
