Senior Obama Officials Hampering Army’s Prosecution of Bowe Bergdahl


Welcome, comrades. The media has begun telling us what the news will be for the day. CNN has decided that they are now a part of Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl’s defense team. They sent out a rather interesting series of tweets detailing the dubious ‘defense’ of Bergdahl’s heinous actions.

Don’t fear, brethren: the media is now here to tell us what to think, courtesy of Comrade Obama:


There has been a fascinating series of tweets coming from CNN this morning regarding the Bowe Bergdahl case:

It could be possible to read the final tweet, from Barbara Starr, as implying that the two defense officials are only confirming for her why Bergdahl “says” he left base. But the three tweets from CNN’s National Security desk reference two defense officials who say Bergdahl walked off his post to “report what he believed to be problems with ‘order and discipline’ in his unit.” The direct quote from the “second official” reinforces the impression that he and his colleague are speaking to Starr on background, and that rather than merely reporting what Bergdahl “says,” they are endorsing a version of events that is in Bergdahl’s legal favor. Indeed, if Bergdahl “wasn’t fed up; he wasn’t planning to desert,” why is the Army charging him with desertion?

If a defense attorney were saying these things to CNN, I would have no objection. Every American accused of a crime deserves a vigorous defense, including soldiers accused of serious misdeeds on the battlefield. But this appears to be a pair of senior defense officials (the language of which implies to me that these men are likely not in uniform) promoting Bergdahl’s case, undermining the prosecution, interfering with the legal process, and calling into question the character of his platoon mates, who have been critical of Bergdahl and the Obama administration’s actions in the press.

Which is reprehensible. What is the Obama administration’s plan here, exactly? Bergdahl’s defense for abandoning his weapon and walking off his post appears to be that his unit was engaged in incompetent or even unconscionable behavior, which he felt it was his duty to report. Now senior officials are going to leak to the press that Bergdahl has been right all along, and his comrades in arms, who did not abandon their posts in the night, may have (wink, nudge) been up to some bad stuff? That the real hero here is Bergdahl?

If anyone in this administration wants to know why the troops despise it, this morning is a fine demonstration.

If anyone thinks for a hot second that I am supporting this notion that somehow, Bergdahl was forced or coerced into doing what he thought was ‘right’, by abandoning his post – you have another think coming. This weak effort by the liberal media to control what America thinks is just pathetic.


Bergdahl is a traitorous bastard and needs to be hung up by his toenails. This ‘excuse’ of him leaving is just a manufactured defense of his actions that he somehow believes if America will buy, so will a jury. Sorry, but no. You deserve everything the Army throws at you.
