The verdict handed down in the Bowl Bergdahl case is shocking and disturbing. Because of Bergdahl’s desertion, 6 men died looking for him. Does he not bear some responsibility for that? President Trump was outraged and expressed it in his tweet:
The decision on Sergeant Bergdahl is a complete and total disgrace to our Country and to our Military.

Conservative Treehouse had this to say about the decision:
Military Judge, Col. Jeffery Nance, handed Bowe Bergdahl a stunningly lenient sentence today reducing Bergdahl’s rank to Private, reducing his pay by $1,000 per month for ten months, handing him a dishonorable discharge and then allowing him to walk away without jail time. According to NBC News Judge Nance did not make any further comments.
Last week Bergdahl plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy and faced up to life in prison. The judge let him walk with a reduction in rank and a fine.
Private Bergdahl, knowingly and with intent, walked away from his base in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009, and was captured by the Taliban within hours. Six U.S. military servicemen were killed trying to find him. In 2014 President Obama traded five Gitmo Taliban terrorist detainees for him in a very controversial prisoner exchange.
Remember when Bergdahl’s father invoked the Muslim prayer during his statement at the White House?
If that doesn’t burn you up, nothing will. This man’s son got 6 soldiers killed while they were looking for him! How dare he do this!
