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

    WASHINGTON — Public opposition to the exchange of five Taliban prisoners for captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has less to do with Bergdahl himself and more with how President Obama handled the transfer, according to a new USA TODAY/Pew Research Center poll.

    The poll shows 43% of Americans say it was wrong for Obama to make the deal, compared with 34% who say it was the right thing to do.

    Thirty percent of those surveyed have a strong opinion of Bergdahl, whose decision to leave his post in 2009 and subsequent capture by the Taliban is under investigation by the Army. Of those, half say they were sympathetic, and half say they are angry with Bergdahl.

    The 128 veterans included in the poll are much more harsh in their assessment of the 28-year-old sergeant. Only 6% of veterans who responded say they sympathized with him, while 33% say they were angry. By 68%-16%, veterans say Obama made the wrong decision.

    "If he was a captured prisoner of war, we wouldn't be having this discussion," says Joe Davis, the director of public affairs for the Veterans of Foreign Wars. "He put his teammates in jeopardy, and you absolutely don't do that in a combat zone."

    wonder what those percentages are now?

    Meh. That is the same crap they always say. Meaningless platitudes. Most people we say served with honor and distinction didn't.

    Think of who Bowe Bergdahl is and what he did and then compare that to this administration and the background that they came from.

    In the eyes of this administration a soldier who does what Bergdahl did is more heroic and more worthy praise than a hundred Chris Kyles. These people are all basically products of the 60s counter culture in one way or another. Whether they grew up in it or had it taught to them by their parents or mentors, this is what they believe.

    this sounds like Bull.

    if he deserted.. why did it take this long to decide that he deserted?

    And.. if he deserted... why was it that no one saw him leave camp in a hostile area. If he could leave undetected.. then it stands to reason the enemy could have entered undetected.

    This smells to high heaven.

    How many other people did Susan Rice (or someone in a comparable position) say served with honor and distinction but who actually didn't? Names, please.
