The last paragraph struck me.
"But there was no definitive conclusion Bergdahl was a deserter because that would require knowing his intent, something officials couldn't learn without talking to him, a U.S. military official has said."
So I got this straight Bergdahl has been in the "reintegration process" since May 31st. Today is July 17th. You mean to tell me in all this time they still don't know if he went AWOL or is a deserter? Did anyone bother to contact his immediate superior officer to ask the details of his disappearance? From all the reports I read at the very least Bergdahl was AWOL and at worse a deserter. Now he just returns to active duty? Didn't 6 guys die trying to rescue him? Why is this happening?
One explanation is everyone knows the 5 for 1 trade stunk even if Bergdahl was a Medal of Honor winner. If it leaks out he was AWOL, or worse a deserter, that makes Barry's sham of a deal all the more atrocious. This story in some ways is like calling the FT Hood shooting "workplace violence" just painted with a different brush to cover up the truth.
BTW...did you know Bergdahl could get $350,000?
Eric Bolling stated one of the five Taliban Commanders released from Gitmo has already returned to Afghanistan. I was not able to confirm this.
No. Let me rephrase that...
(CNN) -- Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has finished undergoing therapy and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio and could return to active duty as early as Monday, a defense official tells CNN.
Bergdahl was held captive by militants for five years before he was released in May in exchange for five Taliban members held by the U.S. military.
Some critics of the swap have said Bergdahl was a deserter who endangered colleagues searching for him.
Bergdahl went missing on June 30, 2009, in Afghanistan's Paktika province, where he was deployed with the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division.
An Army fact-finding investigation conducted in the months after his disappearance concluded he left his outpost deliberately and of his own free will, according to an official who was briefed on the report.
But there was no definitive conclusion Bergdahl was a deserter because that would require knowing his intent, something officials couldn't learn without talking to him, a U.S. military official has said.
