TRIAL WOULD HAVE COMMENCED OCTOBER 23
by Sharon Rondeau
Bergdahl became an apparent captive of The Taliban after walking off his U.S. Army post in Afghanistan in late June 2009. On May 31, 2014, the Obama regime conducted a rescue of Bergdahl in exchange for the release of five known Islamic terrorists from the military prison at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.
For nearly two years, The Post & Email has been publishing U.S. Forces Command updates on the case.
On December 14, 2015, the charges of “Desertion with Intent to Shirk Important or Hazardous Duty;” and “Misbehavior before the Enemy by Endangering the Safety of a Command, Unit or Place” were referred to a general court-martial.
In its Friday report, the AP said that Bergdahl “disappeared from his remote infantry post near the Pakistan border, triggering a massive search operation.” However, several of Bergdahl’s former unit members have said that he purposely “deserted” the platoon and that a minimum of six other soldiers were killed and others injured during search operations for him.
Barack Obama took great pride in having secured Bergdahl from his captors, meeting with Bergdahl’s parents and addressing the nation with them at his side.
In early December, The New York Times reported that Bergdahl had asked Obama for a pardon. The Times also reported that Bergdahl’s lead attorney did not believe that his client could obtain a fair trial once Trump was inaugurated as a result of Trump’s prejudicial remarks made on the matter while campaigning in August 2015.
