Bowe Bergdahl returned to regular Army duty

Bowe Bergdahl returned to regular Army duty

Bowe BergdahlWASHINGTON (AP) — Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant who spent nearly five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan, was returned to regular duty Monday with a desk job that makes him available to Army investigators for questioning about his disappearance in 2009.

In a brief statement, the Army said Bergdahl is now assigned to U.S. Army North at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston in Texas, the same base where he has been decompressing and recuperating from the effects of his lengthy captivity. SOURCE

Call me overly cautious, maybe I am, but for some strange reason I don’t trust Bergdahl any further than I could pick him up and throw him, and I have a VERY sore shoulder at the present time.

Once upon a time Bergdahl would have faced a full investigation, and possibly a Court Martial, not a return to duty.

I suppose Bergdahl, I refuse to address him by ANY military rank, has been evaluated by the *shrinks*, at least I would hope so, but you have to remember this; the Ft. Hood shooter, Nidal Malik Hasan, was one OF the Army shrinks, and how many people did he kill and wound? Hasan went down on 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder, does anyone even remotely wonder if Bergdahl might, at some point, snap and do the same thing?

His exact administrative duties were not immediately disclosed, but a Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, said Bergdahl is not restricted in any way.

“He is a normal soldier now,” Warren said.

I hope Col. Warren isn’t basing any of this on the two most diametrically opposed words in the English language; Military Intelligence.

I’m not an Army Colonel, I don’t play one on television or in the movies and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night, but in MY opinion, just plain common sense says that when a soldier spends 5 years in *captivity* that he is not, especially in this short a period of time, what could be referred to as *a normal soldier*.

The Army said that in his assignment to U.S. Army North he “can contribute to the mission,” which is focused on homeland defense. It said the Army investigation into the circumstances of his disappearance and capture by the Taliban in eastern Afghanistan in June 2009 will continue.

You don’t suppose Bergdahl’s contribution to *the mission* would have anything to do with how to spot a deserter and traitor to this nation do you? Seems to me that Bergdahl might just have a few *indicators* that they haven’t been able to remove just yet.

Bergdahl walked away from his unit after expressing misgivings about the U.S. military’s role — as well as his own — in Afghanistan. He was captured by Taliban members and held by the Haqqani network for five years. He was released May 31 as part of a deal in which the U.S. released five top Taliban commanders who had been imprisoned at the military detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Some former members of his unit have labeled him a deserter and said some were wounded or killed looking for him. The Army has not ruled out disciplinary action against Bergdahl.

Bowe Bergdahl was, in MY opinion, the start of a downhill spiral for Barack Hussein Obama, one that has caused even Democrats to look at him, Obama, differently and to now question his leadership abilities, or, at the very least, his *values system*.

Barack Hussein Obama traded 5 high-ranking Taliban officials; Mohammad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Mohammed Nabi, Khairullah Khairkhwa, and Abdul Haq Wasiq for Bowe Bergdahl, a person that is accused, by his fellow soldiers, of being a deserter and a traitor.

I have to presume that all usable information had been extracted from those 5, I would hope so, but were their skills as Jihadists depleted or were they still a danger once back in Muslim lands?

The Obama administration says the 5 will be transferred to Qatar. Under the terms of the deal to free Bergdahl, Qatar will keep the senior Taliban figures under house arrest for a year.

Intelligence operatives fear that Qatar will somehow *lose track* of the Gitmo 5, forget that they were to be held or allow them to slip through some rather large cracks in the Qatari security system.

I see no reason to expect otherwise.

With the Obama regime the scandals and illegal activities come in at a fast pace, I am of the belief that is a deliberate effort on the part of Obama’s regime, one used to distract the attention from one scandal or impropriety to another.

I have given up even trying to address ALL of the shenanigans connected to the Obama bunch, all I am doing now a days is posting opinions on the topic of the day. Anyone that expects more effort on my part needs to come up with some compensatory relief for my efforts.

I haven’t forgotten anything; I’m just unable to list it all at one time.

    Obama and his administration have now reached a point where one can hardly list all his scandals and strange actions without having to write a very long book. Fred, keep to the “topic of the day.” That’s reward enough for your readers. As for Bergdahl, he left his unit in a war zone. I’m just surprised the Taliban didn’t make him an officer in their corps. (Actually, they were holding him in anticipation of a big ransom payoff and you better believe they got one.)

  2. Gary says:

    Like you, amigo, my first thought was “Didn’t Nidal Malik Hasan have a safe little desk job at Fort Hood?”
    Trusted to mill about smartly with his fellow soldiers, he spun and launched a plan that was devastating… and the white house called it ‘work place violence.’
    The only hope is Bergdahl will enjoy what we in the US Yacht club called a blanket party, before being treated as an Iraqi family goat.

  3. HGPSURF says:

    This is the result of Obama replacing the military leaders who had ethics with those who will do his bidding. It would have been embarrassing for the Obama regime to get Bergdahl for 5 hardened terrorists and then bring him home to be tried for desertion. The military officers are covering for Obama. Makes me wonder how high up in the command this reinstatement came from.

    • HGPSURF says:

      Also, think of how this degrades the morale of those in the military who consider Bergdahl to be a traitor.

  4. BobF says:

    Thank you for not calling him “Sergeant”. Calling his Sergeant is a slap in the face to the men and women who earned that title through honorable service.

    His fellow soldiers said he deserted his post. Returning him to duty is going to affect morale just like glorifying Sodomites has.

  5. Wayne says:

    This stinks Fred. I just can’t believe what’s happening in this country. Aren’t there enough patriots in the armed forces that can rebel against this sort of behavior? I mean no disrespect to those in uniform but I wonder why there aren’t more people like A. West speaking out against the firing of all those high ranking officers. I know West is retired but I would hope there are a lot more of his stature still serving actively. The military can’t all be fooled by this faux commander in chief.

  6. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    So: do we even know if the Army plans ANY form of UCMJ action against him?

    No, we do not. And that speaks volumes.


  7. Capt Ron says:

    This does stink. Everything BHO does stinks. I’m tired of having to stomach the s**t sandwich at someone elses whim. When I was in the Navy, Bergdahl would have been keel -hauled. That still isn’t good enough for him. I agree with HGPSURF, where ever Bergdahl goes the moral there will deteriorate at an incredible and rapid rate. If he was going to be stationed anywhere, it should be in a place remote, such as Alaska, or better yet Guantanamo, as a clerk. Yeah, that’s it, Guantanamo. The Marines would know how to handle him.

  8. Mike Flyynn says:

    This will be huge in the military and will definitely affect the good order and discipline of all branches…what does that tell a member of the military? Do what you please, there ARE NO consequences….God help us.

  9. Pat Houseworth says:

    Hopefully a nice “Blanket Party” awaits the Deserter….this is what the Obama Military is becoming…Misfits, Radical Gay Activists, and Islamic Terrorists and their Supporters…..the leaders that would oppose Obama are being weeded out…..if the 3% or any other group waits, it will soon be too late to make a difference.

  10. Abigail says:

    I think the military had 2 choices: admin sep or retain on Active Duty. If AdminSep, he would be out whereas if AD they can pursue investigating his actions. Correct me if I’m wrong, please.
    He has hired a lawyer, pro bono, in addition to his military lawyer. And a Major General Dahl has been assigned to investigate the goings on. Which should take several weeks.
    So patience all. The wheels of military justice grind slowly.
    Also of interest, he has refused to speak with his parents! Now I find that rather bizarre.
