His was a misfit, a reject in his own unit. You really must see how destructive this is to those that are rejected. The closer you get to danger, the tighter units become, and rejection is intensified. He never should have been deployed. A FAP or TAD was in order to get him to his EAS and out. Desertion and an OTH seems fair, but what he has been through is punishment enough I think.
I will never understand what was in Obama's heart to bargain five terrorist leaders for Bergdahl. Its too dark.
The answer is simple. He wanted to close gitmo since day one of his presidency. The fact he couldn't do it was named as his top regret in an interview...
His reputation was on the line.
Remember, the claim was always that gitmo was a recruitment vehicle for the Taliban...
Well in 8 years of Obama, the recruitment continued and he did little to stop them.
A lie was perpetrated and he now lives with the consequences..
In my humble opinion, Obama never had the stomach for war.
He lucked out by taking down Osama and that was enough to get him reelected with that sound bite.
He was not serious going after ISIS in the beginning and now we are dealing with a bigger problem.
Yeah, you are right on, I do believe. It must have been a secret campaign promise to close Getmo, and he tried like crazy to keep that promise. He failed, and I don't suppose that puppetmaster (Muslim Brotherhood?) was at all happy about it. BooHoo!
I agree that he didnt fit in and that 5 years as a captive was punishment enough.

I was reading where the family/loved ones were relieved and over joyed that the person who had murdered their love one was finally apprehended and incarcerated. Does this really feel like justice has been done? You lose...

Is it moral to profit from the murder of an innocent man? If you accept that the person is murdered to give you everlasting life aren’t you just as guilty of the crime? If a man said to his son, let them murder you...
