This Is What Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s
Life Will Be Like Now

ABC News, by Luis Martinez

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/15/2014 4:29:07 AM

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will work a “desk job” now that he has completed his reintegration process and returned to regular duties as an Army soldier, the Army said today. The former Taliban prisoner will be assigned to the headquarters of U.S. Army North at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas. Bergdahl has been assigned to the command to do administrative duties commensurate with his rank as a sergeant, Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said. “To use a slang term, he’ll be working a desk job,” Warren added. Bergdahl, 28, will be living in the noncommissioned barracks at Fort Sam Houston. “Sgt.

Perhaps Hussein will invite the Bergdahl family back to our White House to feel out the poor darling desertor´s Mommy.

Bergdahl and Hussein are giving a bad name to all the desertors we have shot back when men were men.o

In 2009 it was found that Bergdahl had voluntarily left his post but they said they could not determine his intent. Did they think he was going to the Seven Eleven to get some cigarettes? He left his post because he wanted to leave. He let down his fellow soldiers. He put them in harm´s way when they were forced to look for him with some paying the ultimate price. In my opinion for that reason alone, he should not be allowed any freedom of movement. Families are without their loved ones because of his selfish act. When the military can´t even acknowledge that this guy deserted, they are in deep denial and political correctness has blinded them to the truth.

Usually I need some hard evidence before I pronounce any kind of judgment on anyone. This time I´m going by gut instinct. And I say Obama and Co. are ordering this man to be treated as described because they know it will infuriate People Like Us. As a side benefit, it offers some distraction from Benghazi, illegal immigration, IRS, NSA, plus M-I-C, K-E-Y, M-O-U-S-E.

Yes, I deeply resent the money it costs us, the lack of a courtmartial and, definitely not least, the brave young lives he squandered via his comrades searching for him. However, I´m going to ignore all that because there are far worse things in need of attention right now and we have no idea what the Fresh Hell du Jour will be.

If a lot of this article sounds strangely familiar, in many places it is the same wording we´ve seen in others during the last day or so. Apparently the Army issued a release on what they wanted us to know about Bergdahl´s present situation.

As Charles Krauthammer said yesterday, there are regulations for handling a case like this one. If the Amy follows them, without outside interference, we should expect it to play out to its appropriate end. Most of us (and I imagine Dr. K as well) wonder a lot about that "outside interference" that could come into play.

They can´t transition Bergdahl back to a combat arms unit that has served in Afghanistan, the members of which you can bet consider Bergdahl to be a deserter, who is responsible for a number of US soldiers being killed and wounded while looking for him after he deserted from his unit on the battlefield in Afghanistan. If they did that, the chances are very good that Bergdahl would become a casualty of "friendly" fire.

So begins the next chapter in the "life story" of the grand adventures of the now infamous Bowe Bergdahl.

#4, sadly, I agree about this being another goading to infuriate PLU. There have been many since Obama took office, but the overall appearance of incompetence by this administration caused some to question whether the actions were deliberate or dimwitted. The incident with the two Marines in full dress uniform ordered to hold umbrellas over Obama and the Turkish Prime Minister at an outdoor press conference in the rain caused many more to believe his actions reflected disdain and mockery. That number has likely grown since then.

The shock that a POTUS would act in such a manner has faded now. Worse things have happened and are happening, and we indeed "have no idea what the Fresh Hell du Jour will be".

Will Bergdahl have to provide his own kORAN and prayer rug, or will the Army provide nice new ones from the Gitmo gift shop? Does he get to pencil in his five daily prayer times as he wishes? Will he be given adequate time to prepare for his role as keynote speaker at the next Dem convention?

So many issues.

More than a century and a half after his death at the Battle of Gettysburg, a Union Army officer is being awarded the nation’s highest military decoration. President Obama approved the Medal of Honor for First Lieutenant Alonzo H. Cushing, the White House announced Tuesday. Cushing was killed in action on July 3, 1863 – age 22 – during the battle’s third and final day, in the face of Pickett’s Charge, a futile, deadly Confederate advance that threatened to turn the tide of the war. Cushing served as commanding officer of Battery A, 4th United States Artillery, Artillery Brigade, 2nd Corps for

MINSK, Belarus -- Ukraine´s president said Wednesday that Vladimir Putin accepts the principles of a peace plan for Ukraine but the Russian leader insisted that only Kiev can reach a cease-fire deal with the pro-Moscow separatists. Following meetings between Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that included a one-on-one session that stretched into the night, there was no indication of a quick end to the fighting that has engulfed eastern Ukraine.

We’ve covered the abusive anti-conservative Wisconsin “John Doe” proceedings many times before. The short story is that two separate proceedings were commenced under the auspices of Democratic District Attorneys in order to try to take down Scott Walker. John Doe No. 1 concerned Walker’s time as County Executive and ended without finding any wrongdoing by Walker himself. John Doe No. 2 concerned Walker’s time as Governor and recall election. Both a state court judge and a federal judge found that even if everything the investigators claimed was true, it was not illegal. This John Doe No. 2 resulted in a federal lawsuit by

The Islamic State’ video-dissemination of one of its goons beheading an American is an existential challenge from which we cannot afford to shrink. Until the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS) did that, it made sense for the U.S. government to help contain it because the Islamic world, which the IS threatens most directly, must destroy it sooner or later. But internetting that beheading was a gory declaration of America’s impotence—a dare-by-deed that is sure to move countless young persons around the globe to get in on killing us, anywhere they can. The longer the Islamic State survives, the more will take up

House Republicans are calling on the Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel for its probe into the IRS targeting scandal, claiming new evidence shows the investigation is “compromised” due to multiple instances of conflict of interest. One example, according to House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa and Regulatory Affairs Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, involved a DOJ attorney representing the IRS in litigation relating to the scandal who used to work for the IRS and was involved in the targeting. However Monday night a DOJ source confirmed to Fox News that the employee in question, Andrew Strelka, "no

BEIRUT -- Syria said Monday it was ready to help confront the rising threat from the Islamic State group, but warned the United States against carrying out airstrikes without Damascus´ consent, saying any such attack would be considered an aggression. In seeking to portray itself as a partner for the international community, Syria seemed intent on capitalizing on the growing clamor among some U.S. officials, including military leaders, to expand the current American air campaign against the Islamic extremists in Iraq and to hit them in Syria as well. President Barack Obama has long been wary of getting dragged into the bloody

WASHINGTON -- Three months after a veterans´ health care scandal rocked his administration, President Barack Obama is addressing the American Legion National Convention in an appearance that is also fraught with midterm politics. The president´s speech to the Legion convention Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, aims to draw attention to administration initiatives to care for veterans once they come home. For Obama, the visit to North Carolina has a heavy political subtext. The state´s Democratic senator, Kay Hagan, is in a difficult re-election race and Obama is not popular in the state. Hagan was scheduled to speak to the American Legion too,

Obama’s evolution on ISIS threat

The Obama administration says the nation is facing a threat from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) that, in the words of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, is “beyond anything we’ve seen.” Earlier this year, however, President Obama was dismissing ISIS as the junior varsity of al Qaeda. The White House on Friday suggested that assessment is now moot because the group has “gained capacity in the last several months.” A timeline of remarks this year from Obama and other administration officials show an evolution of thinking on ISIS — a change critics say has not come fast enough: Jan. 27: Obama

Key Factor in Police

Each time police officers draw their weapons, they step out of everyday law enforcement and into a rigidly defined world where written rules, hours of training and Supreme Court decisions dictate not merely when a gun can be fired, but where it is aimed, how many rounds should be squeezed off and when the shooting should stop. The Ferguson, Mo., police officer who fatally shot an unarmed African-American teenager two weeks ago, setting off protest and riots, was bound by 12 pages of police department regulations, known as General Order 410.00, that govern officers’ use of force. Whether he followed them

MADISON, Wis. – Conservative targets of a Democrat-launched John Doe investigation have described the secret probe as a witch hunt. That might not be a big enough descriptor, based on records released Friday by a federal appeals court as part of a massive document dump. Attorneys for conservative activist Eric O’Keefe and the Wisconsin Club for Growth point to subpoenas requested by John Doe prosecutors that sought records from “at least eight phone companies” believed to serve the targets of the investigation. O’Keefe and the club have filed a civil rights lawsuit against John Doe prosecutors, alleging they violated conservatives’ First Amendment

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad!

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
