Sgt. Bowe Bergdah Charged with Desertion & Misbehavior Before the Enemy … The Same Individual Obama Admin Said Served with “Honor and Distinction” and Traded 5 Taliban GITMO Prisoners
Sgt. Bowe Bergdah Charged with Desertion … Tell us something everyone did not already know prior to his release.
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who was recovered in Afghanistan last spring after five years in captivity, has been charged with desertion and misbehaving before the enemy. As reported in Stars and Stripes, Bergdahl is charged with one count of Article 85 and one count of Article 99 under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Much of the back-story that Bergdahl was a deserter was known at the time ahead of the deal made for his release. However, Barack Obama has obviously never met a military deserter he did not like. This is the same man that Barack Obama had a Rose Garden ceremony with his parents announcing his release. GOOD GRIEF. Bowe Bergdah, a deserter, a man who deserted his fellow soldiers, was exchanged for 5 top Taliban GTITMO detainees. Compounding this terrible Obama deal to trade an army deserter for 5 top Taliban GITMO detainees, Fox News is reporting that at least three of the five Taliban leaders traded last year for Bergdahl have tried to plug back into their old terror networks.
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who was recovered in Afghanistan last spring after five years in captivity, has been charged with desertion and misbehaving before the enemy, Army officials said Wednesday, setting the stage for emotionally charged court proceedings in coming months.
Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s attorney, told The Washington Post that his client was handed a charge sheet Wednesday. Army officials said in a statement that Bergdahl has been charged with desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty and misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place. His case has been referred to an Article 32 preliminary hearing, which is frequently compared to a grand jury proceeding in civilian court.
The court hearing for Bergdahl, 28, will be held at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston in Texas, where Bergdahl has served since shortly after his recovery on May 31, 2014.
Under the misbehavior-before-the-enemy charge, Bergdahl faces a maximum punishment of confinement for life, a dishonorable discharge, a reduction to private and total forfeiture of pay and allowances since the time of his disappearance, Army officials said. The desertion charge carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison, a dishonorable discharge, a reduction to private and a total forfeiture of pay and allowances.
Let’s not beat around the bush, the deal for Bowe Bergdahl was made by Obama for one reason and one reason only, to empty GITMO. Barack Obama cared more about emptying GITMO than he ever cared about the fact that Bowe Bergdah was a deserter. Or the fact that he put his fellow soldiers in harms way. Obama could have cared less. This is what a community agitator does. This is what a liberal ideologue does. This is what an individual does who has nothjing but contemt for the United States military. And sadly, this is what passes as a Commander in Chief today. You should be ashamed America for electing and reelecting the worst president ever.
Article 85 is “desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty.” It carries a maximum potential punishment of a dishonorable discharge, reduction to the rank of private, total forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and five years in prison.
Article 99 is “misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place.” It carries a maximum potential penalty of dishonorable discharge, reduction to the rank of private, total forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and life in prison.
Remember when Barack Obama flunky Susan Rice said Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.” But what else would you expect from an Obama minion, part of an administration that is against everything that the United States once stood for? Really, Bowe Bergdah served the United States with honor and distinction? UNREAL. I wonder what his fellow soldiers think think how he served? Or any other military person who is in harms way and serves this great nation putting their life on the line? Bowe Bergdah didn’t serve the United States with honor and distinction … he deserted his country.
