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

    The two charges news conference is going on now. No discussion about the 2014 investigation will be discussed to keep impartiality during the USMCJ. An article 32 preliminary hearing (like a Grand Jury hearing) will be coming. IF found guilty on both charges, a maximum incarceration of life in prison could be levied. No death penalty was discussed so that is not an option according to the press conference.

    This is quite a difference and contrast from Susan Rice, National Security Adviser saying Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.”
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Strange how obama went out of his way to get this guy back and paint it as some sort of accomplishment....

    Remember when Susan Rice said he served with "honor and distinction"?

    Sadly, I believe this only reinforces her belief. This is her ideal soldier.

    So you are objecting to the conclusion of the Military investigation because you don't know the story?

    Seems rational...
