Our Position On U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

USA_PFC_BoweBergdahl_ACU_CroppedSince the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the media has inundate us with baseless opinions, and what amounts to a public trial of Sgt. Bergdahl. Networks have brought in fellow soldiers to comment on Sgt. Bergdahl’s character, actions and their assessment of the prisoner swap that secured his release.

Regrettably, the endless cornucopia of public adjudication is rendered by individuals who have never put on a uniform, and who’s sole motivations are ratings.

No one has stopped, ever, to consider what Sgt. Bergdahl may have been subjected to while in captivity. Senator John McCain can shed some light on that subject. Sgt Bergdahl could have been beaten, subjected to sleep depravation, made to witness a beheading, sexually abused or any number of other conditioning stimulants the majority of these morons couldn’t possibly conceive of. I’ll guarantee you that many of the so called media Rock Stars dragging Sgt Bergdahl through the coals would have resorted to engaging in fellatio under similar circumstances.

The facts and events surrounding Sgt. Bergdahl abandoning his post, and his subsequent capture are between Sgt. Bergdahl, his fellow soldiers, the U.S. Army and the DoD, and not CNN, FOX News, et al. The Sgt has had a very bad 5 years, so let’s stop speculating about and degrading an American serviceman that survived his captivity by whatever means possible. If you want to criticize the Administration, Susan Rice or any other appointee find a different way of doing it but stop using Bowe Bergdahl  and his family. It’d be interesting to see what your opinions would be had it been your son in captivity.

To the guys who served with Bergdahl, make your feelings known to your chain and Army investigators but don’t let these hypocrites manipulate you just so they have something to talk about. Let the cards fall where they may, but I honestly don’t think they’ll be naming Public Libraries after him.

    I agree with you.

    This weekend I spend some time thinking about the prisoner exchange, can you please explain how such an exchange would work. By how it works, I mean not politically, but physically. I mean, how does two parties that are at war safely exchange prisoners?



    • John in times of war prisoner exchanges serve many masters. For example, individuals held in captivity for a long period of time can be turned or compromises. Of the five Taliban seniors releases in Exchange for Bergdahl, two may have been turned and now represent intelligence assets. So there are many different reasons why exchange prisoner are selected and agreed to. There are also political reasons, or simply a matter of getting folks back. Prisoner exchanges, have been done since man first went to war. The exchanges usually take place in neutral territory or under a white flag (temporary ceasefire)
