    Well, he pretty much announced his intention to desert and wrote email after email criticizing his fellow soldiers and his country. The soldiers in his unit believe he gave intelligence information to the Taliban which contributed to an increased number of casualties for his unit. Desertion in war is a pretty big deal - he did not 'get captured'. He gave himself to the Taliban.

    Inconclusive and speculative.

    I am going to out on a limb and say that not only is Bergdahl a good, decent man and honest man -- but he joined the military for the right reasons. Not to shoot Afghans or get revenge for 9/11, but to help them build a better society. While his platoon was out visiting strip clubs (verified), he would immerse himself in the language of Afghanistan and try to understand them better.

    Was he a good war time soldier? Probably not.

    He joined the Military for the Right reasons? Just what would those be?

    Well.....you are entitled to your Opinion of the man. Which most who served with him and most who served. Don't think so.....and many never will.

    To help Afghanistan.

    When the Berdgahzi scandal implodes, and it will, the right-wing will have to live with the fact that they've openly called for the execution of a good man.

    Did anyone see the vid of Bergdahl boarding the US helicopter on the news this morning? For a man who's supposedly in bad health, he looked fit as a fiddle. Guess Obama lied again.

    Yes, I watched the video. Yes, he looked healthy, but look at his body language - he was apprehensive, almost as if he was wondering if this was a double cross about to happen. Did anyone else see that?
