    And convicting peole without a trial is so American, isn't it. I understand some have to believe what they want to be true instead of what the evidence shows, but I will continue to point it out and laugh.

    US army a little short on recruits?

    Last I heard, he hadn't even spoken to his parents.

    He' hasn't even had time to go through the 'normal' post-deployment regiment that all soldiers must do.

    There's something highly fishy going on here. (as with most things where Obama gets involved)

    I'm sure you remember military justice isn't the same as it is in the civilian world. **** there's even CATCH-22 in todays UCMJ.

    Personally I would prefer going back to "Rocks and Shoals."

    None of which addresses anything I actually said. Even in the military, presumption of guilt is not the case, not is conviction without trial.

    They haven't even started the investigation yet. Don't forget he was a prisoner and is still recovering. Time will tell.

So why the firestorm over the trade to get him back? We don't leave our own in the hands of the enemy, whether or not they were AWOL, but it seems that some here were very willing to do that, whether or not Bergdahl had been AWOL or not. What the hell is happening to us if we are willing to throw our soldiers into the garbage over allegations, even before an investigation shows the evidence was not enough to put Bergdahl on trial? So we traded 5 Taliban members for Bergdahl - I call that a good trade. Bergdahl is one of ours, and we don't leave ours behind to rot on the battlefield, or in the prisons of the enemy. That is the American way.

    Article is here.
    I don't think anyone is claiming that we should have left him to rot. I think most people are angry over the price we paid for him. At some prices anything is a bad deal.

    Why? The evidence shows that he deserted his post.

    You have gone senile Redress, you already have forgotten your Navy days.

    Remember the term "Standing before the man" ?

    Remember Article 15 of the UCMJ, Non-Judicial Punishment ?

    Remember those big and scary looking sadistic Marines who ran the Navy brigs ?
