Bowe Bergdahl’s Desertion, Treason, and Bizzare Lifestyle

The more that comes out about this little punk, the worse it gets.

He did much more than desert. He served as a mouthpiece for the enemy. As if that weren’t enough, his background is a menagerie of weirdness.

Excerpts from the New York Post:

Bio:

……As a teen, the home-schooled son of Calvinists took up ballet — recruited to be a “lifter” by “a beautiful local girl,” Rolling Stone reported — “the guy who holds the girl aloft in a ballet sequence.” The strategy worked — Bergdahl, who also began dabbling in Budd­hism and tarot card reading — soon moved in with the woman.

Even as a teen, he could fire a .22-caliber rifle with precision.

At age 20, he traveled to Paris and started learning French in hopes of joining the French Foreign Legion.

His application was rejected, and he was devastated, the magazine reported.

Bergdahl would drift for years, working mainly at a coffee shop near home. He briefly considered moving to Uganda to help villagers being terrorized by militias before deciding on a different ­adventure.

After he got in country he decided that the U.S. was evil and the poor Afghan terrorists were just misunderstood:

……in the weeks before his capture, Bergdahl had made murky statements that suggested he was gravitating away from the Soldiers in his unit and toward ­desertion, a member of his platoon told Rolling Stone.

“He spent more time with the Afghans than he did with his platoon,” former Spc. Jason Fry told the magazine in 2012.

His parents went along with the plan to desert:

……Bowe Bergdahl would detail his disillusionment with the Afghanistan campaign in an e-mail to his parents three days before he went missing.

“I am sorry for everything here,” he wrote. “These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.”

Bergdahl also complained about fellow Soldiers. The battalion commander was a “conceited old fool,” he said, and the only “decent” Sergeants, planning to leave the platoon “as soon as they can,” told the Privates — Bergdahl then among them — “to do the same.”

“I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US Soldier is just the lie of fools,” he concluded. “I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

Bob Bergdahl responded in an e-mail: “OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!”

Let me get this straight: PFC Rebel Without a Clue  joined the U.S. Army and concluded that everyone is conceited, foolish, and disgusting except for him. He comes across as a narcissistic little problem child who thinks he’s smarter and more educated than everyone else. Traitor Bradley Manning had the same opinion.

The desertion:

……One night, after finishing a guard-duty shift Bowe Bergdahl asked his team leader whether there would be a problem if he left camp with his rifle and night-vision goggles — to which the team leader replied “yes.”

Bergdahl then returned to his bunker, picked up a knife, water, his diary and a camera, and left camp, according to Rolling Stone.

The next morning, he was reported missing, and later that day, a drone and four fighter jets ­began to search for him.

……Propaganda videos of his captivity — which featured Bergdahl denouncing American foreign policy — were released.

From The Weekly Standard:

Several men who served with Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan say Bergdahl deserted in 2009 before being captured by the Taliban. Bergdahl’s release this weekend as part of an exchange with the U.S. for five top Taliban operatives who were being held in Guantanamo Bay has prompted those servicemen to speak out. Jake Tapper at CNN reports:

“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 Sgt. 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.

 

The Washington Post also published an article by journalist Nathan Bradley Bethea, who was in country when Bergdahl disappeared. He unequivocally calls him a “deserter” and says American Soldiers died looking for him:

……His disappearance translated into daily search missions across the entire Afghanistan theater of operations, particularly ours. The combat platoons in our battalion spent the next month on daily helicopter-insertion search missions (called “air assaults”) trying to scour villages for signs of him. Each operations would send multiple platoons and every enabler available in pursuit: radio intercept teams, military working dogs, professional anthropologists used as intelligence gathering teams, Afghan sources in disguise. They would be out for at least twenty-four hours. I know of some who were on mission for ten days at a stretch. In July, the temperature was well above one hundred degrees Fahrenheit each day.

These cobbled-together units’ task was to search villages one after another. They often took rifle and mortar fire from insurgents, or perhaps just angry locals. They intermittently received resupply from soot-coated Mi-17s piloted by Russian contractors, many of whom were Soviet veterans of Afghanistan. It was hard, dirty and dangerous work. The searches enraged the local civilian population and derailed the counterinsurgency operations taking place at the time. At every juncture I remember the Soldiers involved asking why we were burning so much gasoline trying to find a guy who had abandoned his unit in the first place. The war was already absurd and quixotic, but the hunt for Bergdahl was even more infuriating because it was all the result of some kid doing something unnecessary by his own volition.

They spent countless days trying to track down and rescue this piece of shit who couldn’t have cared less about the consequences of his actions.  His fellow Soldiers risked their lives and some were killed because of his feckless stupidity.

He should be Courts Martialed ASAP, and Obama should be bitch-slapped for pandering to Islamic terrorists.
