    I didn't hunt through every post here so this may be old news...

    I listened to the first 5 or 6 episodes and was left ambiguous...

    Re: Bowe Bergdahl

    Breaking news.

    Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban for half a decade after abandoning his Afghanistan post, is expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, two individuals with knowledge of the case said.

    The decision by the 31-year-old Idaho native leaves open whether he will return to captivity for years — this time in a U.S. prison — or receive a lesser sentence that reflects the time the Taliban held him under brutal conditions. He says he had been caged, kept in darkness, beaten and chained to a bed.

    Bergdahl could face up to five years on the desertion charge and a life sentence for misbehavior.

    I was kind of hoping for a trial. Now a lot of the facts will likely remain buried.

    Probably the smart choice for all concerned.

    Re: Bowe Bergdahl

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) A military judge ruled Friday that Bowe Bergdahl should serve no prison time for endangering his comrades by walking off his Afghanistan post......The judge also gave Bergdahl a dishonorable discharge, reduced his rank to private and said he must forfeit pay equal to $1,000 per month for 10 months. The judge made no other comments.
    Bergdahl gets no prison time, gets dishonorable discharge

    I thought for sure drumps divisive comments were going to end up causing a mistrial, guess in the end didn't really matter.

    Or perhaps he will come out of this with a better perspective and make some type of positive "penance" part of his life.

    Maybe he will come out as a woman. Worked for Chelsea Manning.

    Re: Bowe Bergdahl

    Seems to me it's almost for certain the dude has some rather significant mental illness issues goin on...

    I'm a little relieved the sentencing went as it did. Putting him in a US prison would have been fuckin pointless. He doesn't need prison time, he needs a fuckin therapist.

    The only "good" that prison time would have accomplished would have been to appease the pitchfork and torch people and justify their disdain.

    Re: Bowe Bergdahl

    He failed out of the USCG in 26 Days for “Psychological problems.” If you cannot handle the stress of basic training, you should not be in uniform.

    The Army granted him a waiver. Most waivers are for one-time transgressions. Granting someone with Psych problems a waiver to become a Paratrooper seems just nuts. He created hardship and misery and pain for a lot of Americans, and endured an astonishing level of cruelty in captivity and ruined his life in just about every way.

    Will the staffers who approved this waiver ever be held accountable? Not a chance.

    Bowe Bergdahl Seeking New Trial or Clemency Due to Trump Comments | Military.com

    “The Army's Court of Criminal Appeals heard arguments Thursday in the ongoing case of Bowe Bergdahl, with the former soldier's attorneys contending that the case should be reconsidered or Berghdahl should be granted clemency because President Donald Trump's comments and tweets tainted the proceedings.”
