Bowe Bergdahl Pleads Guilty to Desertion

Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 24, 2017

In June 2009, US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl disappeared from his Afghan military base.  After spending five years in captivity, the Obama Administration traded five high-value terrorists for Bergdahl’s release.

Arguments were then made for and against the trade, especially given evidence that Bergdahl deserted his base and fellow soldiers.  In addition, some soldiers charged with searching for Bergdahl were wounding and reportedly at least one killed.

CNN reported earlier this month that Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion stating: “I left my observation post on my own,” and “I understand leaving was against the law.”  It is telling to compare the actual facts with the false narrative the Obama Administration created at the time of the trade.  As seen in the video below, Susan Rice then claimed that Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction”.  This was more than a fabrication; it was an outright lie.  It is an example of why the American people no longer trust government.  It is an example of one factor behind the election of Donald Trump.
