Bowe Bergdahl deserted his unit in 2009. His desertion was celebrated by the obama administration. Standing next to Bergdahl’s parents, Bergdahl’s dad proudly sporting his Taliban beard obama said this:

THE PRESIDENT:  Good afternoon, everybody.  This morning, I called Bob and Jani Bergdahl and told them that after nearly five years in captivity, their son, Bowe, is coming home.

Sergeant Bergdahl has missed birthdays and holidays and the simple moments with family and friends, which all of us take for granted.  But while Bowe was gone he was never forgotten.  His parents thought about him and prayed for him every single day, as did his sister, Sky, who prayed for his safe return.

He wasn’t forgotten by his community in Idaho, or the military, which rallied to support the Bergdahls through thick and thin.  And he wasn’t forgotten by his country, because the United States of America does not ever leave our men and women in uniform behind.

Susan Rice said the deserter had served with “honor and distinction.”

Our resident idiot Sen. Chris Murphy called Bergdahl a “American hero.”

obama traded five high value terrorists for the deserter.

Six good men died trying to find the deserter.

Jen Psaki said “it was absolutely worth it.”

Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers called him a deserter back then but Marie Barf, er, I mean Harf, said they “weren’t qualified” to make that judgment.

Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

Then, in a stupefying move, a judge let Bergdahl escape prison time.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his Army base in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held captive by the Taliban for five years, received no prison time for desertion or endangering troops, but was ordered by a military judge on Friday to be dishonorably discharged from the Army.

The sentencing took only minutes in a case where prosecutors had sought 14 years in a military prison.

The military judge, Col. Jeffery R. Nance of the Army, also reduced Sergeant Bergdahl’s rank to private and required him to forfeit $1,000 a month of his pay for 10 months.

Trump rightly called it a “disgrace.”

Now, to top off the atrocity, the Army is debating whether to reward this deserter to the tune of $300,000.

When Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl came home in 2014, he was potentially entitled to hundreds of thousands of dollars in pay that accumulated over five years while he was in Taliban captivity in Afghanistan.

Bergdahl was captured after walking off base on June 30, 2009, while deployed to Paktika province with 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. He pleaded guilty in October to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. On Nov. 3, a military judge ruled Bergdahl would not serve any jail time but be dishonorably discharged from the Army and reduced in rank to private.

From the moment he was captured, Bergdahl became eligible for extra pays available to captive troops.

In total, along with his basic and deployment pay, he could be entitled to more than $300,000.

He was not “captured.” He deserted. He gave himself up. He surrendered.

I cannot get my head around this even as a possibility. Why would anyone want to join the Army if deserters are rewarded over those whose lives were lost in finding him? Shouldn’t that money go to the families of those killed and wounded searching for this “hero” of the liberal left?
