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.

Illegal immigration is a money-maker

With illegal immigrant leaders picketing the White House, screaming demands that President Obama include them in “any future negotiations;” with the possibly orchestrated influx of unaccompanied children from Central America jumping the U.S. border with questionable motives; and with the White House gleefully doing anything it wants and taunting the Republicans into a suicidal impeachment frenzy over the failed rule of law, American politics is degenerating into a surreal drama of criminal hubris, strategic cunning and livid stupidity. The impeachment rage is easy to quench by a constitutional reminder: a simple majority vote by the Republican-controlled House could easily pass

In the early hours of Saturday morning, under the cover of the Mediterranean darkness, US warships quietly moved into place off the North African coast. We can’t say how many, but among them were a destroyer, the USS Ross, and a guided-missile cruiser, the USS Vella Gulf. At about the same time, three F16 fighter jets took off from Aviano Air Base in Italy and headed south, along with two MV-22 Osprey transport planes carrying a full complement of rapid reaction force marines from another US base in Italy, Sigonella. Surveillance drones circled overhead, and in support flew a KC-135

FORT WORTH, Texas – The U.S. has barred a shipment of Kurdish crude oil from reaching the Texas coast amid concerns independent oil sales from Kurdistan could further weaken Iraq´s fragile central government as it struggles to contain a Sunni military offensive. A U.S. District judge ordered a U.S. Marshal to seize the cargo — about 1 million barrels of crude oil, worth about $100 million — aboard the tanker United Kalavryta in response to a complaint filed by the Iraqi government claiming the oil was smuggled out of Kurdistan without its permission. However, the tanker, anchored some 60 miles off the

BAMAKO, Mali — The cash filled three suitcases: 5 million euros. The German official charged with delivering this cargo arrived here aboard a nearly empty military plane and was whisked away to a secret meeting with the president of Mali, who had offered Europe a face-saving solution to a vexing problem. Officially, Germany had budgeted the money as humanitarian aid for the poor, landlocked nation of Mali. In truth, all sides understood that the cash was bound for an obscure group of Islamic extremists who were holding 32 European hostages, according to six senior diplomats directly involved in the exchange.

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could meet next week with the general who´s looking into how the now-freed prisoner of war was captured by the Taliban in 2009, his attorney said. Attorney Eugene Fidell told CNN he will know for sure next week exactly when the meeting will take place. When it happens, it´ll be the first meeting between Bergdahl and Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl who is the point person for the Army´s investigation. The 28-year-old soldier spent five years in the hands of Taliban militants after he disappeared in Afghanistan in June 2009.

When rumors started that Hollywood was thinking about remaking The NeverEnding Story, most people of my generation were incredulous that they would attempt to redo such a childhood favorite. Of course, now we fear a new version won´t be about a magical fairytale where a young boy goes on an adventure filled with unbelievable events but instead about the Republican primary for U.S. Senate — itself an adventure filled with unbelievable events. But as we wait for our own version of The NeverEnding Story to progress to the next chapter — i.e. will Chris McDaniel ever file a challenge to the election

Imagine you’re about to sit down for supper when suddenly 760 folks show up on your front porch wanting fried catfish and hushpuppies. You’d be fit to be tied as they say in Tennessee. And Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is fit to be tied. The Obama administration recently released 760 illegal immigrant children to sponsors in the Volunteer State without any warning, the governor charged. There was not so much as a text message or tweet. “It is unacceptable that we became aware via a posting on the HHS website that 760 unaccompanied children have been released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to

Second-term presidents rarely achieve as much as they did during their four years in office, either because top aides tend to be off their political game or because of external events. Reagan´s second term team, for example, was greatly distracted by the Iran-Contra scandal. George W. Bush´s second term was consumed by Hurricane Katrina and the economic collapse of 2007. As a result, second-term presidents tend to spend their final days in the Oval Office with low public approval ratings and rapidly waning influence on the course of events. President Obama is certainly following the familiar path with approval ratings sinking into

NEW YORK- Americans have a debt problem. An estimated 1 in 3 adults with a credit history -- or 77 million people -- are so far behind on some of their debt payments that their account has been put "in collections." That´s a key finding from a new Urban Institute study. It examined non-mortgage debt, including credit card bills, car loans, medical bills, child support payments and even parking tickets. The debt in collections ranged from as little as $25 to a whopping $125,000. But the average amount owed was $5,200. Geographically, no area of the country is untouched. Among

Additional searches for videos that Salt Lake City lawyer Jesse Trentadue believes are being withheld would be burdensome and fruitless, FBI attorney Kathryn Wyer argued during the first day of a bench trial. Trentadue says the agency is refusing to release videos that show a second person was with Timothy McVeigh when he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary.

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm.

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col.
