    It is indeed. Your counter to the evidence that exists is that it is not a hundred percent proof. But that level does not exist for anything.

    the man abandoned his post. He deserted. It's not really a matter of debate, it's what he physically did.

    My argument is that you only have what you hear, and don't know if what you hear is accurate, or if there is information you don't have. Nothing has been confirmed, supported, or examined.
    There have been multiple investigations into this, dude, and the case file on him is thick as crap. It's been examined ad nauseum, as have any reports of his movements or activities.

    No, you misread, perhaps on purpose. I don't stop there. I explain that you have nothing but reports. Each not complete. Without verification or examination, missing bits of information. This has not been completed yet.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    On the contrary, we have multi source, multi discipline verification of the same event. You are right it hasn't been completed - he hasn't been put on trial. However, the lack of a legal procedure does not require that we also suspend reason.

    Again, until under examination, it's just noise. You have no idea what you don't know.

    I keep waiting for you to propose any other plausible explanation for what every single witness said happened, the physical evidence said happened, the Taliban said happened, and what Bergdahl has not disputed.

    I don't have to. So quite trying pretend that's a valid question. We simply don't know enough. Most of the conclusions were based on hearsay and lack of evidence. That lack of evidence bite the hell out of us in Iraq. When will people learn?

    Imo, don't negotiate with terrorists.

    Will that mean some hostages will die initially? Probably.

    But it also means that far less hostages will probably be kidnapped in the future. Why will terrorists bother if they know you will not negotiate with them?
    To make beheading videos?
