Actor Gary Sinise, who is one of the really good guys, is demanding an explanation from the Obama administration for the trade of five high-level Muslim terrorists for a deserter.
The soldier in question has been charged with Article 85 and Article 99 of the UCMJ. Those charges are desertion and endangering the safety of the command. They carry a maximum penalty of a dishonorable discharge and life in prison.
We don’t expect the administration to come forth anything but more blather justifying the swap of a deserter for five high-level terrorists. Here’s State Department spokes-twit Jen Psaki.
Gary, we’re with you. But the best they’re likely to do is send out Susan Rice again after the trial to talk about how Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”
