Sgt.Bowe Bergdahl to Face Court-Martial for Desertion … Faces Possible Life Sentence

 

THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO TRAITORS ACTIONS …

It would appear that the U.S. military is taking the Sgt.Bowe Bergdahl very seriously and has ordered Bergdahl face a court-martial Bergdahl is charged with desertion and endangering troops. Pretty amazing, seeing that the Obama administration hailed Bergdahl with praises of honor and distinction when he was freed. Of course what would you expect from this ‘Alice in Wonderland’ president. In May 2014 Barack Obama swapped Sergeant Bergdahl for five Taliban detainees who were being held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Brilliant.

A top Army commander on Monday ordered that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl face a court-martial on charges of desertion and endangering troops stemming from his decision to leave his outpost in 2009, a move that prompted a huge manhunt in the wilds of eastern Afghanistan and landed him in nearly five years of harsh Taliban captivity.

The decision by Gen. Robert B. Abrams, head of Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg, N.C., means that Sergeant Bergdahl, 29, faces a possible life sentence. That is a far more serious penalty than had been recommended by the Army’s investigating officer, who testified at the sergeant’s preliminary hearing in September that prison would be “inappropriate.”

According to Sergeant Bergdahl’s defense lawyers, the Army lawyer who presided over the preliminary hearing also recommended that he face neither jail time nor a punitive discharge and that he go before an intermediate tribunal known as a “special court-martial,” where the most severe penalty possible would be a year of confinement.

Monday’s decision rejecting that recommendation means that Sergeant Bergdahl now faces a maximum five-year penalty if ultimately convicted by a military jury of desertion, as well as potential life imprisonment on the more serious charge of misbehavior before the enemy, which in this case means endangering the troops who were sent to search for him after he disappeared.

      The General is doing the right thing even though it could create an immense amount of friction from the Obama administration. It is time that the military tell the fake in the White House to ‘buzz off’ and leave them alone.

      Life imprisonment for Bergdahl should be the goal of the Court Martial. The defense attorney’s request for a “Special Court Martial” should be denied.
