Getting It Right?
Looks as if Bergdahl will be charged with desertion in spite of BO’s objections. That Rose Garden photo-op is such a major embarrassment for him. Trading jihadists for a deserter is such a coup.
According to the colonel’s internal Pentagon sources, the Army has already charged Bergdahl with desertion but has been stymied in pursuing the normal court-martial processes due to oppressive command influence from the White House. According to Shaffer’s sources, the immediate culprit is Ben Rhodes, current deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for Barack Obama.
White House fear is totally understandable. If you had traded five key terrorist leaders for one American G.I. and your hero turned out to be a deserter who willingly left his post and his unit and went over to the enemy in time of war, wouldn’t you be embarrassed? Worse, had you quite publicly invited said deserter’s parents to stroll congenially and intimately through the White House Rose Garden with you, and then had that event broadcast round the world, wouldn’t you be embarrassed?

Served with “distinction”?

“The fact that our government negotiated with terrorists and our enemy is incomprehensible. The fact that they exchanged five war criminals for a traitor is sickening. The worst part for those of us that suffered through that time is that PFC Bergdahl is being hailed as some kind of hero. He was automatically promoted to Specialist and Sergeant, ranks he does not deserve and did not earn. [snip]Are you listening, Capitol Hill and America? The Bowe Bergdahl mess isn’t just a story about one deserter, but two. There’s the muddle-headed lowlife who left his post and brothers behind. And there’s the corrupt commander-in-chief who has jeopardized more American soldiers’ lives to “rescue” Bergdahl by bowing to the Taliban, while snubbing the surviving heroes and at least 8 dead American soldiers who lost their lives because of him.
There are also claims he hasn’t been charged. If he hasn’t been it will be for political reasons to keep the Clown-in-Chief from looking like a major asshat. It would also make their “claims” about Benghazi incredulous and might hurt Shrillary in her campaign to become Preezy. State Department Blocking Benghazi Committee Access To Witnesses
The State Department is blocking Congressional access to key first-hand witnesses of the 9/11 Benghazi attacks, citing a need to protect their personal safety.
“We understand the committee’s interest in interviewing these agents and I’m sure the committee does not want to take any action that would create risks to their personal safety or their ability to do their jobs,” Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Joel Rubin said during his opening statement at a hearing today of the Benghazi Select Committee.

I would like to recommend two programs that caught my eye by chance. One is called “Patriots Rising”, a historical account of the contributions made by average Americans and their heroic efforts in the Revolutionary War. Most of them were just children in their teens, it was totally amazing. Seen on the American Heroes channel. The other is an ongoing series called “The Sons of Liberty”, some artistic license, but a great background on the why and where of the Revolution. Want to know why we are who we are, best learn where we came from. Available on the History Channel.
