The sense of pride expressed by officials of the Obama administration at the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is not shared by many of those who served with him — veterans and soldiers who call him a deserter whose “selfish act” ended up costing the lives of better men.
‘I was pissed off then and I am even more so now with everything going on,’ said former Sergeant Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon when he went missing on June 30, 2009. ‘Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.’
Vierkant said Bergdahl needs to not only acknowledge his actions publicly but face a military trial for desertion under the Uniform Code of Military Justice….
Former Pfc. Jose Baggett, 27, of Chicago, was also in Blackfoot Company, and said he was close to two men ‘killed because of his (Bergdahl’s) actions.’
‘He walked off,’ Baggett told CNN. ‘He left his guard post. Nobody knows if he defected or he’s a traitor or he was kidnapped. What I do know is he was there to protect us and instead he decided to defer from America and go and do his own thing. I don’t know why he decided to do that, but we spend so much of our resources and some of those resources were soldiers’ lives….’
The Obama Deception Continues
Just as the Benghazi survivors/witnesses were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements, the suriving members of Bergdahl’s platoon or squad had to sign nondisclosure agreements as well “agreeing to never share any information about Bergdahl’s disappearance and the efforts to recapture him.”
Will the Bergdahl/Taliban5 prisoner swap become Barack Obama’s next scandal?
Of course, there are those who say that five years as a POW is more than enough punishment for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, but taking into consideration the men who lost their lives searching for this deserter (call him by his name) and Bergdahl’s recorded disdain for the United States and the army, there are many who say otherwise.
Below are comments of men and women who served, many in Bergdahl’s division on the Facebook Wall of the 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division.
Then there is ‘Cody’ who alleges that he was serving with Bergdahl at the time of the desertion. H/t SooperMexican.
Cody has tweeted his alleged accounting of events surrounding Bergdahl going MIA, which can be viewed at _ @CodyFNfootball.
If the accounting as described by Cody is accurate and based upon personal knowledge then Cody might consider retaining legal counsel before Obama’s minions knocks on his door because Cody like others coming forward to get out the truth is violating a non-disclosure agreement.
Note: At the same time, much of which Cody tweeted can be found in Michael Hastings’ 2012 article, Rolling Stone Magazine entitled “America’s Last Prisoner of War.”
Whether Cody personally observed that, of which he writes remains to be seen. As Conservative bloggers, we must be vigilant. There are far too many in the blogosphere who would gladly spoon-feed us disinformation for the sake of ruining our credibility and shutting down the debate.
Doing so is necessary if Barack Obama is to continue the presentation that Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is a hero.
Moving on, as noted by many in the blogosphere including former Congressman and Lt. Col. Allen West as usual with Barack Obama, something stinks:
Take a look at this tweet from released Army SGT Bowe Bergdahl’s father — which has since disappeared from his account.
Folks, this is either a very bad case of Stockholm Syndrome or something far more nefarious is at stake. Regardless, there is more to this than meets the eye of Obama making a unilateral decision and announcement on a Saturday — when he believes no one is watching…
Another damning tweet. This one is from A.M.H. @alimhaider (below):

It seems to me that the real heroes are the men who lost their lives looking for Bergdahl yet Barack Obama, the mainstream media and their fellow Progressive Klansmen remain silent.
