    That is up to the leaders of the military under the authority of the Commander and Chief.

    Peanuts in the gallery dont get a vote.

    McCain and other Vietnam vets were filmed in captivity. We knew his story. Right now Bergdahl has ALOT of explaining to do.

    He has a huge amount of explaining to do.

    As of right now it looks to me like he laid down his gear and went AWOL.

    Where he planned on going is one thing that I would like to know.

    Nobody left Bergdahl behind.

    He laid down his gear and walked away from his unit.

    Whatever has and will happen to this guy, he asked for it.

    You are correct he didn't desert his post, but there were people who accused him of collaborating with the North Vietnamese.

    I mean how much more evidence do you need?
    Do you believe convicting him without a trial? I sure don't.

    If the only way to get them back is to negotiate and make deals with terrorist organizations (either directly or indirectly) then, were I POTUS, then I am afraid that they would regrettably be left behind...though a physical extraction would never be off of the table.

    I believe that you NEVER make deals with terrorists...either stall for time until you can kill the terrorists/free the hostages through force or ignore them.

    But never make deals.

    Otherwise you just encourage other terrorists to capture others.

    The accusations against him from his own platoon are that he deserted. There's no clear evidence of collaboration - that will come out in an investigation by the UCMJ and I hope by other sources who were close to the issue at the time.
    ďI think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whatís being proposed here, heíd agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.Ē - 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.
