Does anyone else find this Bergdahl case fishy?Submitted by ausscyn on Tue, 06/03/2014 - 15:09
Aside from the negotiating with terrorists angle, WHY did we give up FIVE high profile prisoners for this deadbeat? Maybe because he's not a deadbeat? I'm beginning to think Bergdahl knew more than he let on, because WHY would so much effort be made fo find him after he walked off? Really. I have no military experience or background, but why would commanding officers put so many at risk to find this guy? Wouldn't they say, "Well, he went AWOL & now he'll suffer the consequences. I'm not going to risk good soldiers for this guy's ass."
Also, they keep talking about how he's in the hospital in Germany & recovering. Well, how much "recovering" does the guy need? When they released those hikers from years of prison in Iran, did they go to the hospital? And, when he gets here, he's going to be re-united with his parents, not going straight to a brig to await trial. Wouldn't most AWOL soldiers not pass Go & go straight to jail?
This is just not sounding logical in my mind. Anyone else getting these fishy signals?
