Sgt. Robert “Bowe” Bergdahl left his post on June 30, 2009 while stationed in Afghanistan. In May 2014, five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay were exchanged for Bergdahl’s release without notification to Congress, as is required by law.

(Oct. 6, 2017) — The Associated Press reported on Friday that Sgt. Robert B. Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty to two charges rather than proceed to trial on October 23.

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.

  1. Bergdahl’s freewheeled and disregarded the chain of command and grievance procedures.

    For a fellow to leave his camp to wander alone “outside the wire” he must have had some
    sort of mental condition/melt down.

    Indeed, Bergahl was used and Obama got a lot of mileage using him.

    James Carter’s point says it all. It revealed Obama’s faulty stance. Bowen, Walker, Curtiss, Andrew, Murphrey, and Martinek reveal what greatness there is in America.

    Further, Obama’s actions as an USURPER is revealing.

  2. I wonder if (p)resident Obama ever met with and consoled the families of these six members of Bergdahl’s unit who were killed by the Taliban while looking for him:

    Staff Sergeant Clayton Bowen, 29, of San Antonio, Texas
    Private 1st Class Morris Walker, 23, of Chapel Hill, North Carolina
    Staff Sergeant Kurt Curtiss, 27, of Murray, Utah
    2nd Lieutenant Darryn Andrews, 34, of Dallas, Texas
    Staff Sergeant Michael Murphrey, 25, of Snyder, Texas
    Private 1st Class Matthew Martinek, 20, of DeKalb, Illinois
