"I believe in a Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of all that exists, but not in a God who concerns himself with the fate and actions of human beings."
--Albert Einstein, 1929
Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero - CNN.comMany of Bergdahl's fellow troops -- from the seven or so who knew him best in his squad to the larger group that made up the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division -- told CNN that they signed nondisclosure agreements agreeing to never share any information about Bergdahl's disappearance and the efforts to recapture him. Some were willing to dismiss that document in hopes that the truth would come out about a soldier who they now fear is being hailed as a hero, while the men who lost their lives looking for him are ignored.
The Army began investigating Bergdahl soon after he disappeared and were at least suspicious.
Yes, it's an assumption that the Army investigation would have talked to his fellow soldiers ... the ones who came forward immediately after the deal.
Pretty crappy investigation if they didn't. And given the non-disclosure agreements it's a pretty good assumption, don't you think?
And along with that assumption comes one that the Army would have mentioned that to their Commander In Chief.
