Military Deserter Bergdahl Demands Taliban More “Honest” than U.S. Army

Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl arrives at Fort Bragg, NC for his court hearing.

Any military veteran or supporter of our armed forces knows just how serious the crime of desertion is. Coupled with improper behavior behind enemy lines, it truly borders on treason.

Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant who admitted to deserting his post in Afghanistan in 2009, pleaded guilty yesterday, but demanded that his radical Islamic captors were more “honest” than his own U.S. military.

“At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat'” Bergdahl told UK TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview for the Sunday Times Magazine of London.

Bergdahl claims he never knew “where he stood” with the Army as he worked on “administrative duties” awaiting his trial for desertion.

“Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for life. We may as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs.”

Bergdahl is expected to appear before a sentencing committee after admitting to not just desertion, but misbehavior among the enemy. Any Veteran who has taken the oath to defend this country knows just how bad this is.

The courtroom in Fort Bragg, N.C. is expected to deliver the sentence, which could be life in prison.

Bergdahl was released in 2014 in a heavily-criticized decision when the Obama Administration agreed to bargain with terrorists, giving them 5 Islamic leaders for Bergdahl. Many on both sides of the political aisle considered it a poor trade at best.

President Trump made his feelings on Bergdahl known during the 2016 election cycle, criticizing his actions harshly.

Col. Jeffrey R. Nance is the judge presiding over the courtroom who will be the one to deliver Bergdahl’s final fate. One of the factors expected to play into the final decision are the serious combat wounds several U.S. service members sustained while attempting to search for the deserted soldier.

    • With all due respect my friend, there was no confirmed deaths caused by looking for him, but there were numerous soldiers mortally wounded that looked for him. Some are now quadriplegics, some are paralyzed and in a vegetative state.

      Secretary of State Hillary Pinocchio Benghazi Clinton and Barack Hussein ‘Mr Resist the egomaniace’ Obama tried to pull the wool over American’s eyes welcoming home this traitor as a hero.

      As a retired veteran myself I fully believe in no man left behind, but in Mr Bergdahl’s case, he should have been left behind, and he should never have gone into the Army to begin with.

      It makes me sick to see him still have the rank of Sgt. I hope he gets life in solitary confinement, he deserves it.

      • Sam G I agree with you in some aspects. In addition to those BRAVE SOLDIERS mortally wounded, don’t forget the 5 terrorist Barack Hussein traded the Taliban for this Deserter. Bergdahl should have gotten life in solitary confinement but he didn’t which is a stab in the heart to all Military by the Military Judge. As for no confirmed deaths….those numerous brave soldiers that were mortally wounded leaving them quadriplegics or paralyzed in a vegetative state just might disagree with your statement. Bergdahl is not a Veteran and doesn’t deserve to breathe the same air as these BRAVE MILITARY VETERANS. GOD BLESS THEM AND THANK YOU TO ALL VETERANS FOR THEIR SERVICE.

  1. If this traitor is not put to death for his crime, then as soon as his sentence is served, he should be deported back to the Taliban where he can be treated much better and live his life in peace and harmony…

  2. I think it’s a shame that the military court system didn’t order the death of Bergdahl as he deserted in war time. Death sentence is what he should have gotten. Being a retired veteran myself I would never want to come before this court for any reason, seems they’re all for the deserter.
