    And she's a national security adviser............ goes to the heart of the feckless policies this administration has engaged.

    I would like to know his side of the story," Ken Black, Curtiss’ father-in-law, said Tuesday of Bergdahl. "I’m not going to judge anything in regards to this individual." .....

    Curtiss’ widow, Elizabeth Ivory, spoke to NBC’s "Today Show" in a segment that aired Tuesday morning. She said she is not certain her late husband actually died searching for Bergdahl. .....

    Curtiss and Bergdahl were both assigned to the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division.

    Black, who lives in West Valley City, said his family did not know anything about his son-in-law and the Bergdahl search until after Bergdahl’s release over the weekend.

    The Army had told his family, Black said, that Curtiss died searching for al-Qaida members who had taken refuge in a medical clinic. Curtiss died from gunshot wounds.

    A video posted on Youtube in 2011 claims to show Curtiss kicking in the medical clinic door moments before his death. Soldiers then describe Curtiss’ death and retrieving his body. The narration says the soldiers were looking for a Taliban member.

    It's on a YouTube video that Sgt. Curtiss didn't die searching for Bergdahl. Now I wonder what the army told the other families about their son's deaths and just who is telling the truth.

    One very outspoken soldier is claiming that Bergdahl left his post in the middle of night.....but if he knew that then why didn't he report it instead of waiting until morning roll call?
    The men in that unit say those soldiers died looking for Bergdahl. Thats a credible source.

    "Rear Adm. John F.

    The "no man left behind" creedo doesn't apply to deserters. It cheepns the idea to say that it does.

    Ah, so THIS is the newest faux outrage from the Right. I'm sure they were glad to get their hands on this after they saw that endlessly screaming "Benghazi!" or whining about Obamacare was no longer working. And their behavior is mind-numbingly predictable, as is their hypocrisy.

    Typical Republican injustice since Obama came in, guilty until proven innocent .
    Republicans have been desperately hoping to catch Obama in a major scandal since the day he took office. They would rather sacrifice the reputation of this nation than let Obama receive any kind of praise for anything.

    Not near as excited as the administration is for VA-gate to get bumped from the headlines.

    Not that the right-wing cares remotely, but this is what Bergdahl thought of his platoon (sent to his parents via email):

    “We don’t even care when we hear each other talk about running their children down in the dirt streets with our armored trucks … We make fun of them in front of their faces, and laugh at them for not understanding we are insulting them.”

    I can see why he became disillusioned with the military. He wanted to help the Afghans, and that's what the military promised he could do when they recruited him.

    As more and more vets WHO WERE THERE come out with the details of what happened in risk of violating a gag order, no trial is needed for them to pass judgment. Unit leaders reported a letter left behind by Bergdahl renouncing his citizenship. (his personal emails validate someone being ashamed of being an American) They also reported receiving a cell phone call from him verifying he had deserted. A couple days after he went AWOl they picked up chatter about an American wishing to speak to the Taliban just 2 miles from their post. After Bergdahl went AWOl the mission of the entire unit changed with all resources directed at finding him which put them in places where they were never intended to go and soldiers lost their lives. Now you can go ahead and try and make this about a unjustifiable Republican witchhunt all you want but it isn't going to fly. Thank God for the Vets coming forward with their testimonies of events because so far what this administration has told us amounts to a crap sandwich.

    Cody Full (from Bergdahl's platoon) is saying that Berdgahl wanted to cut the faces off fallen Taliban and wear it as a mask. Sounds like something a Buddhist philosopher would say.
