Bergdahl walks without a jail sentence. After 6 men gave their lives looking for the confessed deserter and others were injured or maimed in the effort.
The military judge stated in writing prior to sentencing that the harsh criticism Donald Trump made about Bergdahl would be his reason for a lighter sentence.
I notice he didn’t mention the prior president threw a Rose Garden party for little Bowes pro Taliban mommy and daddy, and trotted out Susan Rice to claim Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction”. At least Trump’s words actually matched the facts of the case.
The judge is an Army Colonel. Love to be on the review board that decides if he ever gets a star. He owes an apology to the families harmed by Bergdahl’s actions.
