Would it be possible that Bergdahl actually possesses fair amount of highly valuable intelligence about Taliban, that he somehow acquired during his time with them, and JAG promised him no punishment in exchange for him to talk?

Hell no! He has spilled his guts being debriefed already and even if he held back something so much time has past. They have already moved or no longer do that action. I suspect the only thing Turdahl is holding back is how much training and information he really gave the Taliban during his stay with them.

No.

bergdahl is nothing more than a coward and a traitor and should be treated as such.

The only one that thinks he's a "hero" is barry soetoro.

The Judge followed the Investigating Officers recommendations.

Bo burkadhal apparently gave some very golden information during de-brief and cooperated fully.

But the recommendation should have been time served so we don't owe him back-pay.

Isn't his back pay determined by the last point in which he performed honorable service? I'd say that pegs it at the point he walked out the wire on his own.

Why Bowe Bergdahl Wants to Appeal His Desertion Conviction Now

Why Bowe Bergdahl Wants to Appeal His Desertion Conviction Now

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattve...n-now-n2585622

"Well, he’s back, folks. Bowe Bergdahl wants to appeal his desertion conviction because—you guessed it—Donald Trump is no longer president. Bergdahl claims the former president’s rhetoric prevented him from having a fair trial...."

Anybody want to guess how this will play out?

In 2014, the Obama/Biden administration negotiated with terrorists to secure the release of 5 High Level International Terrorists that were being held in Guantanamo Bay. The freed detainees were part of a group of 48 prisoners that a panel commissioned by the Obama administration determined should not leave U.S. custody. Still, the Obama/Biden administration elected to negotiate with terrorists to secure the release of the "Taliban-5" in exchange for a US soldier that had deserted his post during combat operations with a belligerent force comprised of international terrorists.
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

-That soldier (lower case 's' acknowledged) was later court-martialed and found guilty of desertion and misbehavior before an enemy.
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

Susan Rice, the national security adviser for the Obama/Biden administration characterized Bergdahl as having "served with honor and distinction"
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

Senator Chris Murphy, a democrat from Connecticut hailed Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on social media when he posted, that "an American hero is coming home."
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

The Obama/Biden administration hosted the Bergdahl family at a televised event in the Rose Garden to welcome home a Soldier that deserted his unit in combat. When pressed on negotiating with terrorists to secure Bergdahls release and then hosting a welcome home event in the Rose Garden, the Obama/Biden administration made it clear they "make absolutely no apologies" for their actions.
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

Lets not pretend that President Trump is culpable in what transpired; the US Army accused Bergdahl of desertion 5 years before Trump even announced his candidacy. The US Army then charged Bergdahl with desertion in 2015 - before trump was elected.
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

Bergdahl pled quilty to the charges of desertion and misbehavior before an enemy.
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

Bergdahl went on record saying, "I understand that leaving was against the law."
This is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

Regret and shame aren't what might normally be considered to be grounds for a defense - but we ARE dealing with democrats that hate America (just my opinion)

We are also talking about a 50 year veteran of government that in 1974 said during an interview on PBS, "Well, I'm not so sure you should assume I'm not corrupt"
THIS is an unarguable historically recorded fact.

Have we learned nothing about what is and isn't "historically recorded?" I'm guessing at some point it will come out that he was staging a protest about our racist foreign policy.

The truth is, my post is just an illusion.

There is no such thing in America as "historically recorded fact"

Social Media outlets will just delete it from their platform if it becomes problematic.

**POOF**

right into the memory hole it goes - it never happened.
Joe Biden never said, "dont assume I'm not corrupt"
Bill Clintons wife was never referred to by a colleague on the Watergate investigation as the most dishonest and unethical lawyer he had ever worked with
Harris didnt help get violent anti government rioters out of jail
Pelosi never called republicans the enemy of the state
maxine Waters never incited public confrontations against her political foes
...never happened


"historically recorded fact" is only a few months from being a silly phrase that can be gas-lighted away at the wave of a magic wand

The Jedi mind trick NEVER worked as well as leftist gas lighting - and leftists are damn near immune to conservative gas lighting...

Republican Strategist: These aren't the droids you're looking for
Democrat Funded Liberal Activism: Fuck you old man * PEW * PEW * PEW *
StormTroopers: quick; take the droids, put up a few racist comments on this guys social media, plant some illicit shit on one of his work computers, and lets get out of here


Why else do you think the Obama/Biden administration was so willing to negotiate with international terrorists just to secure the release of a deserter so they could give him a hero's welcome....

It's 2021...words no longer have meaning to those that want to change history.

The coward was a "revolutionary" and not a traitor according to today's verbiage.

He wasn't a coward...he was strong for standing up for his convictions.

We are just old tarts that can't change with the times...just ask today's weak-minded folks.

But, with all that said, he is still a traitor to this old dude....
