I have been reading how those Americans in uniform are reacting to the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from the Taliban this past weekend. There responses have been very much angry responses. Can you blame them?
This release also comes in the realization that it cost the lives of six American solders in an effort to rescue him. How is their families reacting to this recent revelation? I would not be surprised if they are very much outrage also.
From The Weekly Standard:
“That’s not true,” says Specialist Cody Full, who served in the same platoon as Bergdahl, and whose tweets over the weekend as @CodyFNfootball offered an early firsthand account of Bergdahl’s departure. “He was not a hero. What he did was not honorable. He knowingly deserted and put thousands of people in danger because he did. We swore to an oath and we upheld ours. He did not.”
“He walked off—and ‘walked off’ is a nice way to put it,” says Specialist Josh Cornelison, the medic in Bergdahl’s platoon. “He was accounted for late that afternoon. He very specifically planned to walk out in the middle of the night.”
“He was a deserter,” says Specialist Full. “There’s no question in the minds of anyone in our platoon.”
The sad thing about all this is that it will not only drive decent and good armed forces people from the armed, but may end up help to discourage via word of mouth those who want to join.
First, I want to thank those who served including those six who died looking for Sgt. Bergdahl. Second this releasing of the six “dream team” terrorist group will in time, come back to haunt the United States of America in a horrible way.
