    Bowe Bergdahl, once missing U.S. soldier, charged with desertion

    Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who was recovered in Afghanistan last spring after five years in captivity, faces charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, according to his lawyer. Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s attorney, told The Washington Post that his client was handed a charge sheet on Tuesday. Army officials announced they will provide an update in his case at 3:30 p.m. at Fort Bragg, N.C., but declined to discuss new developments ahead of the news conference.

    Bergdahl, 28, went missing from his base in Paktika province on June 30, 2009, and is believed to have grown disillusioned with the U.S. military’s mission in Afghanistan. He was held captive in Pakistan by the Haqqani network, an insurgent group allied with the Taliban, until a deal brokered through the government of Qatar was reached last year.

    About time, the left will love him and make a movie for him anyway.

    Can't believe we let dangerous prisoners go back into the ISIS/al Quaida network for this useless bucket of puke.

    I realize hes only been charged-but it looks like the military has the evidence it needs to charge him, the US got the short end of the stick-we released 5 terrorist freaks for what appears to be an America hating nut-one that got American troops killed. And Obama welcomed him and held a bizarre rose garden press conference to announce it.

    Perhaps we can expect as good of a deal from Obama on Iranian nukes. In fact, Im counting on it.

    If convicted Bergdahl could be given the death sentence.

    I just saw that breaking on MSNBC.

    Good. He deserves it. It's shameful that we sent dangerous prisoners back in order to rescue that piece of crap.

    Obama, face smack himself? Don't count on that. He's too enamored of his own image.
