    Pentagon: He walked away. Its Desertion. Just needs to be charged.


    A Pentagon investigation concluded in 2010 that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching the military decided not to exert extraordinary efforts to rescue him, according to a former senior defense official who was involved in the matter.

    The military investigation was broader than a criminal inquiry, this official said, and it didn't formally accuse Bergdahl of desertion. In interviews, members of his unit portrayed him as a naive, "delusional" person who thought he could help the Afghan people by leaving his army post, the official said.

    U.S. military and intelligence agencies had made every effort to monitor Bergdahl's location and his health, the official said, through both signals intelligence and a network of spies.....snip~

    Why would it be different if a soldier died in the performance of his duties while looking for a missing/abducted soldier who is held by the taliban or if a soldier died in the performance of his duty while looking for a taliban commander.

    In both circumstances his death is tragic and horrendous for his loved ones, the army just should not have lied about it IMO.

    The armies morale and its reputation would of been affected in a negative way if they had just turned their back on the missing Sgt.
    Except the soldiers who served with him are furious that this exchange took place. Whether you believe it or not, they think he was a deserter who wound up costing at least six lives. I don't think any soldier in the army would expect the U.S. to risk lives in an attempt to retrieve a deserter and possible collaborator.

    It's heart breaking for the parents of these soldiers who gave their lives looking for this guy,
    how the administration lied to them.

    Also for those who fought to capture the 5 terrorists released in the trade.

    So many lives lost and the terrorists got what they wanted.

    If they had solid evidence that he was a collaborator then I agree but they didn't. Like I have said in other threads none of us know what the Sgts state of mind was when he left his post or the events leading up to that.

    He isnt the first soldier to lose it on a battlefield he also won't be the last, if it was the case that he was mentally unstable then he was as good as wounded and they did they right thing trying to recover him.

    I don't have any problem with trying to recover him. I have a hell of a problem with the price they paid.

    So why does Bergdhal get the blame when it wasn't his decision?

    Now that you mention the Pentagon, on April 2, 2003 the PENTAGON released 5 minutes of the rescue video and claimed Jessica had been tortured, shot and stabbed. As far as I know the entire video has never been released. (taken from the same source that makes the vague claim Jessica's Congressman made up the shot stabbed story, did ya miss it????)

    The Pentagon and Centcom sure pushed to make the Pvt Lynch story a propaganda piece.

    If you could post the name of the source for the Congressman being the start of the shot and stabbed rumor please, it seems to yet another unnamed source...
    I'd like to see a link for all of your claims.
