It’s about time. Scumbag. And this is the jerk Obama for whom Obama freed 5 Taliban generals. And don’t forget the Rose Garden ceremony with the deserter’s mother and father. But it was never about Bergdahl, he was just an excuse for Obama to dump 5 of the most dangerous prisoners at Gitmo. In fact, I’m sure Obama didn’t mind embracing Bergdahl. After all, Obama’s been deserting us and endangering the safety of the country every day for over 7 years.
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s high-profile desertion case was referred for trial by court-martial on Monday, in a blow to his defense team which had urged a lower-level referral.
Bergdahl was released from captivity last year in exchange for five Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay. He was later charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, accused of abandoning his post before he was captured.
U.S. Army Forces Command announced Monday that both charges are being referring to a general court-martial.
An arraignment hearing date at Fort Bragg, N.C., has not yet been set.
Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s attorney, said the convening authority did not follow the advice of the preliminary hearing officer who had recommended Bergdahl’s case be moved only to a special misdemeanor-level military court.
