Bowe Bergdahl: From hero to zero

When word first came out of the exchange of five top Muslim terrorists for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, it seemed we could attribute the debacle to the usual poor judgment of a conspicuously unqualified president... But as more information comes to light, it is starting to smell like something even worse, says the blog Moonbattery.
"Bergdahl was not a legitimate prisoner of war. He is a deserter who went AWOL and turned up among a band of terrorists. He has been described by a company commander as a “dirtbag” and a “sympathizer” (with the terrorist enemy) Moonbattery alleges.
Bergdahl evidently converted to Islam, the blog says, and was teaching the Taliban bomb-making skills with which to kill Americans."  [Read it all]        [RK]

CNN reports: "Pride in the 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. [More]        [BJS]
