One take on Bergdahl

12 Jun

“Try and separate the spin from all of the facts. What’s hard for the general public and even the military to figure out how to communicate that.  First of all, he’s a soldier until somebody declares him not that way, and he’s a U.S. citizen.  We had to go after him.  It doesn’t matter the reason.  We knew it was under an extreme situation that he had been held captive.  We knew at the time he walked off base under his own demise, if you will. It’s still a priority for us for what we do. … and a guy who best case scenario he has PTSD, worst case scenario he’s declared a traitor, and he’ll stand trial for that.  But I’d never negotiate for that guy.  I’d risk my life for him, but I’d never leverage national assets for him.”
“That’s really why hundreds of years ago the framers of the Constitution put three branches of government into play, so that one branch can not make all of these decisions themselves.  What’s happening now is that the executive branch is taking action without getting approval.  Whether it’s right or wrong, that’s what’s causing this.  It’s not really of our national interest to get involved over there in Syria or Libya.  It doesn’t protect us or doesn’t help us.  It’s a different game.  It should get approval through Congress and from the military advisors.”

Of which it does neither.

    I agree, we had to get him back, just not in the fashion it was done. He needed to be brought back and given a trial, if found innocent then so be it. There will probably be nothing done to the little snake anyway, at least not by the muslim regime. If found guilty of desertion then the appropriate sentence should be imposed on him and swiftly carried out.

    The Kenyan has now put countless numbers of our military at risk as the terrorists now know they can get exactly whatever they want by seizing one of our Warriors. We have the capability of locating and tracking these sub-humans so why couldn’t this have been done to find and extract Bergdahl and bring him to Justice. Yes doing this would have been a terrific risk to the party going after Bergdahl and frankly I don’t feel he is worth it. Makes no difference now however.

    But in the future what are we going to do when one or more of our true Warriors are captured? We are getting mired deeper and deeper in this totally useless crap-hole in the Middle East and not one square foot of it nor all the lives contained therein are worth one drop of the precious blood of an American Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine.

    If the Kenyan is still around, there will be no more Americans on foreign soil. He will have surrendered us to our enemies.

        As long as they give him safe passage. But where does he think that monkey he calls a wife is going to go?
