The Coward Bowe Bergdahl, court-martial delayed until February 2017

LOL, now you're going to prison you little coward. I don't think the slimball obama can pardon you for a court-martial that has not played out yet. I hope you get life you bottom-feeding coward.

I am of the belief we should have moved hell and high water to get the young man back in American hands. If for no other reason than we did not know for certain what lead to his terrible choice that day. Additionally, the United States punishes American Soldiers, not the Taliban.

That said, I hope they slam him with the most stringent punishment possible. Coward. All you had to do was complete your tour, come home, and you can whine and complain on social media like a large portion of other vets that never left the firebase to find a reason to complain.

You risked American lives on patrols to come find you when you went missing. Men gave their lives for you. I hope there is some justice for their sacrifice.

You're a nice person, I'm not, I would have killed him before I returned him to the United States.

I read enough stories from the lads in his unit, I think they would have killed him also.

I certainly understand the sentiment and don't besmirch others for that opinion.

My conclusion has been that the members of his former unit 'thinking' that he was a coward and traitor is not a conviction nor did they know for certain the events that led to his leaving that base. What if they were wrong? Did he leave a note saying he was starting a new life or did he not?

We know now (in all likelihood) they were correct, however I think it would have been a very dangerous precedent to set.

If there is even the slightest chance he was a legitimate POW than like I said, hell and high water. Sort it out when he is home.

Additionally, I prefer to see American citizens tried and convicted in the US, no matter their crimes.


That said... screw him. He's a coward and a traitor I hope he gets exactly what is coming to him.

Like it or not he is a US citizen and has the right to due process Anytime we start deniying even one person that due processor any rights we are destroying everyone rights Now after due process if found guilt I have no problem with him bein executed but we must maintain his rights in order to maintain ours.

The frustration with this issue is the fact that he has not been dealt with. At this rate he'll be drawing a retirement check before he is ever convicted. If he is going to openly serve then his ass out to be in some grunt unit. I am sure there is a shortage of E-5's somewhere and that they would love to have him, at least for a day or two.

The wheels of justice turn slowly, but these are turning suspiciously slowly.

Timing is everything....

That's a smart move on delaying this until after the general election and swearing-in of a new president. Assuming that we get a decent president (insert snarky comment here), we have a much better chance of a tough sentence sticking. I don't trust Obama one iota---he would pardon this guy in a heartbeat. If he's gone, much less chance of that happening.

This is not a hard case to prosecute. Hell, Bergdahl gave video confessions. The prosecutors are playing chess, not checkers. This might just end up happening the way it should.

THEN we shoot the son of a bitch.

No, no he doesn't. Desert in the face of combat and what happens in the military?No, no he doesn't. You sound very "liberal" with this statement.

The military is not a democracy. And yes, I would have no problems killing such a piece of shit.

Oh and please tell me how the drone strikes killing Americans joining the muzzies are not stripping the American citizens of their Constitutional Rights?

Do you think it is that, or that the prosecutors want to prevent the opportunity for a presidential pardon?

In the court-martial of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, prosecutors and defense attorneys are sparring over whether comments by President Donald Trump have denied the alleged Army deserter a right to a fair trial. In new court filings leading up to his April trial, defense lawyers argued the case should be dismissed under the principle of undue command influence, now that Trump is the commander-in-chief. They pointed to 40 separate remarks the President made on the campaign trail – including calling Bergdahl a traitor and saying he should be thrown from an airplane. But prosecutors said there was no undue influence because Trump was not the President at the time he made those comments, and that he was using terms like “treason” and “traitor” in a colloquial way. Bergdahl is charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, and faces up to life in prison if convicted. (Federal News Radio)
