Another email we’ll never see: the Army’s report on Bowe Bergdahl

Where the heck is Bowe Bergdahl? Is he hiding in the same location as Hillary’s emails?

Let me be more specific, where is the investigation report we were told was completed last year October? I want to clarify a point: it does not take a senior U.S. Army general this long to determine what has already been determined in a Pentagon report from 2010.

If a Soldier deployed in a combat zone departs his assigned place of duty leaving his weapon and sensitive items and isn’t found – he is a deserter. There are no extenuating circumstances. There is no blame on other members of the squad or platoon. Consider that in all the years of combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, there has only been one American trooper who has left his duty post, and amazingly enough, was not savagely and brutally murdered by the enemy.

Ali Musa Dadduq, a Lebanese terrorist, was guilty of kidnapping several U.S. Soldiers who were ritually disemboweled and executed. In the summer of 2005, two American Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division were captured and ritually executed. We remember the U.S. contractors hung from the bridge in Fallujah. And in Iraq while I was a battalion commander, two U.S. Soldiers from a sister Artillery unit out of Ft. Sill were captured from their checkpoint and found naked and executed — our unit found and recovered their stripped down HMMWV.

So why was Bowe Bergdahl kept alive by the Taliban and Haqqani for five years?

I have another pertinent question: when is Bowe Bergdahl’s ETS (end termination of service) date — meaning when is his discharge date from the Army?

My assessment is that the Obama administration by way of the Secretary of the Army John McHugh, is holding out and keeping Bergdahl hidden until (oops!) he’s left the Army and will be getting $300,000 in back pay.

There is no explanation other than President Obama would be horribly embarrassed for the report to convey what we all know: Bergdahl deserted. And if that is the case, then Barack Obama released five senior members of the Taliban for a deserter — whom he and Susan Rice praised. All the while, those released Taliban barbarians are eyeing getting back to the battlefield while there are still American troops in harm’s way facing the enemy — unlike Bergdahl.

The lesson to be learned here is that the progressive socialist left embraces Bergdahl. In deserting he demonstrated — to them –honor and distinction because he refused to support his country. The contrast is clear. The liberal progressive left despised Chris Kyle — after all he was “going on killing sprees.”

Mark my word, no one is tracking the Bergdahl issue – as a matter of fact, is he still at Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio? Army Secretary McHugh is too busy denigrating a brave Special Forces officer, stripping him of his medals and vaunted Special Forces Tab – I wonder if McHugh ever possessed the intestinal fortitude to earn that distinction, and he dares take it away. McHugh sits back in his ivory palace office and condemns an Army officer who faced and killed the enemy — 1LT Clint Lorance — but hides away the deserter.

What kind of Army leadership exists today?

I would hope the whole Bowe Bergdahl scandal is something masterminded by Valerie Jarrett, but there’s no excuse for Pentagon leadership to go along with this charade. I am sending this inquiry to Secretary McHugh and Army Chief of Staff General Ray Odierno — is your standard for transparency similar to that of President Obama and Hillary Clinton? Stop being a part of a cover-up and complicit in a scandal. Tell the American people where Bowe Bergdahl is and release the investigation report.

Unless the report is stored on Hillary Clinton’s private server.

And on that subject, I know many of you are enthralled with the Hillary Clinton email escapade — gotta tell you, she really blew it yesterday at that UN press conference thing. To say that she wrote all her State Department emails on her private email with its own private servers as a matter of convenience, well, that dawg don’t hunt. And the arrogance of officialdom was evident when she declared that she has complied with all requests and that her private server is basically off limits. Now, without a doubt the media is going into a frenzy because there’s much blood in the water — justifiably so — and they are on the attack. The funniest hypocrisy was the statement that she is not turning over her email because of personal exchanges between her and her husband. But Bill Clinton recently admitted he doesn’t use email and has only ever sent two. Yep, there’s blood in the water.

Sir, I am appalled. I spent my career as an enlisted man, and over the years, I became convinced that when men were promoted to O6, they were given permission to take their brains out and play with them. Now, from that perspective, I am convinced that there is no longer any leadership in the U.S. military, especially in the flag grades. I held a TS/SI clearance for the majority of my career, and many of the things that are being done today would have landed me in Fort Leavenworth. Also, you and I both know that in the military,… Read more »

Well it didn’t move for 5 years while SGT Bergdahl was a prisoner. And even though we may not know the reason now, there is no set time frame for a decision to be made. In my military experience, people who do not exercise enough discipline to wait this out and NOT presume to have all the facts available, create even worse tragedy then this situation is already. You may believe you have all the information you may need to convict this young soldier; you do not. You’ve giver credence to soldiers ill disciplined in their public statements but, give… Read more »

I’ve been saying that for years with all the lies and deceit in this administration. Let alone the lack of understanding of what it means to be a military officer/ NCO. First and foremost, a leader sacrifices for the benefit of the mission.

Apparently the years were wasted because it took Pres Obama re allocating resources on his first day in office to track down and kill OBL. THAT’S what the entire war in Afghanistan was for, to avenge the thousands killed in New York and elsewhere. You and “Le Schrub” did NOT get that done. Whatever the current president’s level of understanding of military life may be sufficient for you, it was enough, in the right direction, in the right amount, with the right resources to order OBL death by our soldiers. Those soldiers are not a rouge element of men; they… Read more »

What did anything I said dismiss the president’s ability to get OBL? Why so personal? Assuming you were in the military the army values didn’t take to you well. Things like integrity and honor mean more than results. The president’s issue come from one source: not telling the American people what really happened in various concerns that came up over the last 6 years. When he says one thing and after investigating that was not true, that should burn down to your core if you value integrity and honor. As a military officer, if I said I found out about… Read more »

Because he is the C in C, it is not his fault of any poverty and I sincerely doubt that you complained when “Le Schrub”, with his silver spoon in his mouth life, drove this nation into a second great depression, as you have about this man. No honor and integrity on your part in that. And, it is not your place to challenge your C in C on these “issues of yours”.

But if the ‘leader” is drinking the same liquor, it sets the example that it’s OK as long as you are in command, but not for the Soldiers beneath you. It’s like the “do as I say, not as I do” method; that never works in a leadership role. So what you’re saying is it’s OK for the president to lie and call elected members names, but not the other way around. If it’s wrong for one party to do it, it’s wrong for either to do so. Let me put it this way, I have conducted 15-6 investigations and… Read more »

You have not proven the president lied or called elected officials names. I however, can specifically state a republican representative, during a state of the union address, if front of God and the nation, shouted LIAR at him. It appears you are confused about who is calling whom terrible names. The UCMJ calls for a speedy resolution AFTER a soldier has been charged. SGT Bergdahl has NOT been charged with anything. What ever the reasons for this lengthy period, neither you or I am privy to them. We can guess and assume. With a life in the balance it is… Read more »

From what I heard he wasn’t getting paid while he was “Missing” so therefore he is receiving back bay for what he would have been paid those 5 years he is missing. They need to be charging him with Murder of his comrades that died when they were out looking for him. Not hiding him away, giving him a honorable discharge and giving him $300,000 dollars.

I’m glad to see that there’s no mention of Bergdahl’s rank in this article. I’m sick of the media’s constant references to “Sgt.” Bowe Bergdahl. He was a PFC at the time he deserted from his unit. Back in the pre-Obama day the Army didn’t promote deserters, particularly those who collaborated with the enemy. And, it certainly wouldn’t have traded five high ranking terrorists to get one back.

SgtRock101
Guest

He is not a confirmed deserter. To you and those who rush to judgment he may but, in fact his is not. Therefore he gets promoted while in captivity. If and when the final report is published, will you eat crow when he is found to not to have deserted but rather, abandoned by his fellow soldiers? It is best to say nothing and be sure to prevent having “trench mouth”.

His Unit Commander was told , He left Everything Behind, and Left, That is A DESERTER

I had a teacher, a loooong time ago, who told of a mother watching her son march by at his recruit graduation parade. “Oh look, everybody’s out of step except my Jimmy”. You dare denigrate many and defend the wrong. I don’t know where you got “Sgt” but it don’t wash.

Bwahahaha, in a land far away, a time of war in a jungle, where some like me rise to the occasion though I don’t match some stateside criteria. In war time the cream of warriors rise to the top as though a magnet drawn to iron.

LTC West summed it up quite nicely in this article when he wrote, “If a Soldier deployed in a combat zone departs his assigned place of duty leaving his weapon and sensitive items and isn’t found – he is a deserter. There are no extenuating circumstances”
Perhaps, you would present a better argument if you were not projecting/dreaming up my beliefs or stance beyond that which I’ve actually stated.

SgtRock101
Guest
The LTC (Jeez after 22 years he should at least be a O-6) is wrong, and he knows it. The proceedings and reports, if completed, are classified. If he has made access to them then he has committed a felony for which, if found guilty, be stripped of all pay and allowances and reduced to the grade of E-1. I need not present a better argument because the truth is the best argument and I believe I have it. That will not change unless the final released report demands it. So, clench your teeth, grab your “Johnson” and keep yourself… Read more »

Make no mistake, Obama’s stupid swap of five terrorist leaders for one traitor has already had deleterious effect on military morale. Bergdahl must be whitewashed to prevent Obama from looking like a complete idiot over his Rose Garden celebration of the trade, and the effect on military morale will further deteriorate.

I do consider Bergdahl to be a traitor who despises the United States, and who provided aid, comfort, and information to the enemy. But, that’s only fair, Obama also despises the United States, and works against its interests. I definitely see a symbiotic relationship between the two.

SgtRock101
Guest

You consider—Bwahahahha. Yeah, I just bet you do!!! Stupid swap? At least one and possibly more of those five was turned. With your and others public campaign to embarrass the president that’s probably a dead deal. Thanks so much for endangering American lives in the field for obvious partisan antics. You must be so proud of yourself.

Brendan

I guess you could assume that the time between the conclusion of an investigation and the announcement of formal charges is based on a political conspiracy to effect an election… or you could believe that the time was spent allowing the prosecution to get its ducks in a row and be fully prepared to present its case.

But if the investigation review concluded in December, more than a month after the election, how would the delay have helped the election?

Traitors were taken care of by us, no trial was given,if you were with the enemy and not a prisioner ( they did not keep a lot of men below LT ) you were considered the enemy and took your chances

Nice to know that you know everything about My War,

Brendan
Guest

well it looks like I know more about your war then you do as I stated correctly that no US soldiers have been shot for desertion since World War Two.

And as to your claim that you shot traitors without a trial…
Since nothing like this has ever been reported, either you are lying… or you are an idiot, because if it were true, you would be admitting to committing a crime to a total stranger on a public forum.
