    Seems like the government is trying to keep the whole thing as cloudy as possible so no one can really know what really happened

    The entire Berghdal story is a success for Obama he diverted the subject away from VA deaths.

    Nobody said his opponents were smart. They went down the Susan Rice rabbit hole once before, remember?

    I figured all of the right-wing knee-jerk would unleash the ad hominem attacks, which apparently are the only thought processes of which they're capable. Remember the presumption of innocence? Even courts-martial have that, as well as a massing of non-hearsay evidence. That's a little inconvenient for you, isn't it? Since you want to talk "diversions," how about that unfounded little thing in Iraq to divert attention away from "Mission (Un)Accomplished?" Nothing like a needless war with needless deaths to ramp up the profits of all those contractors, eh? That's a bigger rabbit hole than anything Susan Rice or the president could possibly cook up.

    If he is brought before a JAG court, he should be tried by a jury of his peers. Those peers should all be NCO's and all combat veterans.

    Your question presumes guilt and you are either playing into the trap or actively pushing the right wingnut agenda. The situation should be investigated by the military, not Fox, and, if Bergdahl did anything wrong, he should be held accountable. Duh.

    Since when is asking if he should be prosecuted a presumption of guilt? Isn't the trial where the truth is supposed to come out.

    An investigation should be conducted, absolutely, and if the investigators think he did anything wrong, then he should go to trial to determine guilt or innocence.

    I will not/cannot answer this question because Bergdahl is being prosecuted by public opinion. This man has not been officially charge by the military. Right now, Bergdahl needs the help and support of Sarah Pallin, the Tea Party and the Republican Party to prevent the prosecution by the readers of the Daily Republic Newspaper poll takers from violating his constitutional rights as a American citizen.

    When Bergdah is out of hospitals, meets his family, etc. he will claim (if rumors are true that he walked away from his post) that he suffered from "stress"! The release of 5 terrorist puts Obama right up there with the other "traitor" who is still running free, and Obama named her one of the top 100 Women......excuse me, but Jane Fonda's face is still on my toilet paper!
