Just to Remind You All What We’ve Traded a Target on Every Service Member’s Back For

Five senior Taliban leaders in exchange for President Pivot’s feel-good moment when he desperately needs one and one soldier who walked away from base.

People have already LOST THEIR LIVES trying to save this little turd.

Now more may get to, thanks to the “No Man Left Behind Unless They’re Ambassadors and/or Navy Seals” Man of Action.

ths update: More from More from CBS News just this March:

Is Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl a hero or a deserter?

…A transcript of radio intercepts, publicly released through Wikileaks, indicates that Bergdahl, then 23, was captured while sitting in a makeshift latrine.

“We were attacking the post he was sitting,” according to a radio intercept of a conversation among insurgents. “He had no gun with him. … They have all (the) Americans, ANA (Afghan National Army), helicopters, the planes are looking for him. Can you guys make a video of him and announce it all over Afghanistan that we have one of the Americans?”

Rolling Stone magazine quoted emails Bergdahl is said to have sent to his parents that suggest he was disillusioned with America’s mission in Afghanistan, had lost faith in the U.S. Army’s mission there and was considering desertion.

Bergdahl told his parents he was “ashamed to even be American.”

Bergdahl, who mailed home boxes containing his uniform and books, also wrote: “The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong.

    I hope that he is NOT an example what the NCO ranks are like nowadays.

  2. JeffS says:

    The NCO cadre isn’t that decimated, Guns.

    Not yet, anyway.

    Sis — there were a lot of rumors about Bergdahl when he was first reported captured. Not many were mentioned out loud, as a matter of common decency.

    Not so any more.

  3. This gentleman’s timeline is pretty damning. @CodyFNfootball

  4. Syd B. says:

    Ashamed to be an American? Now, where have I heard that before?

  5. Private Bergdahl is most definitely NOT representative of any NCO cadre.

    All other NCO’s in US uniform earned their stripes.

    Private Bergdahl was promoted in absentia whilst serving with the Taliban.

    See the difference?
