I don't know how they would know the camera/compass/journal is gone, unless it was something he had sitting on his table out in the open. I lived with a dude in a trailer for 14 months and I couldn't tell you a single thing he owned (or if it was missing)outside of his laptop.

maybe he was planning to steal dudes stuff at some point

I'm OK with us cutting a bunch of old Taliban loose in exchange for a dumb boot. Yeah, he deserted, but the five years in militant custody probably gave him enough time to reconsider that decision. More to the point, we're trying to wind down Afghanistan. We are going to have to do something with all these guys in Gitmo that we nabbed from Afghanistan eventually, and Congress doesn't seem to want to fund anything besides "keep pretending the problem doesn't exist."

I refuse to believe that even PETA is capable of that grade of stupidity.

But we should still round them up and send them to the gas chambers for being PETA.

Well, if he hasn't used english for half a decade he's going to be a bit rusty. And presumably traumatized in one way or the other.

If he's still speaking pashto a few weeks from now it's a *thing*.

CNN published a story about the chilly reception Bergdahl is getting from vets online.

Just to clarify I think getting him back was the right thing to do, and losing 5 irrelevent broken Talibs isn't a big deal. Seriously, look at the amount of prisoners Israel is willing to swap for one of their soldiers. Right wingers are always so keen to talk about how good Israel's antiterrorism model is and how we should be emulating it :laugh:.

After 5 years I'd agree that Bergdahl has probably suffered enough, however he doesn't deserve to come out of this with an honorable discharge, or benefits.

CNN posted:

A reporter asked Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Sunday whether Bergdahl had left his post without permission or deserted -- and, if so, whether he would be punished. Hagel didn't answer directly. "Our first priority is assuring his well-being and his health and getting him reunited with his family," he said. "Other circumstances that may develop and questions, those will be dealt with later."

I mean, at least Hagel gave a reasonable answer and didn't completely suck down the pow war hero story.

Is this something directly tied to him, that would otherwise not have happened? Because there are losses while hunting talibs every year, and I don't imagine we wouldn't have been hunting them regardless?

Legally I think might be hard to make stick. Same goes for proving he aided the enemy outside of a confession.

Reading from various sources including that mess of a twitter feed from his old squadmate, yes, it seems that 6 men did indeed die as a direct result of searching for him and maybe another 8 died indirectly because the scheduled closure of a firebase had to be delayed as resources were diverted to look for Bergdahl. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Kamdesh

The search required a number of additional patrols which would not have been conducted otherwise. I'd say that makes him directly responsible for their deaths.

They may have been killed regardless of whether or not they were searching for this guy. However, he did 'disappear' and they were killed while searching for him.

Yeah, McCain sure was a shitbag when refused to be repatriated early despite regular torture. What a loving turd.

McCain wouldn't have gotten into the academy or graduated without daddy to smooth things over. He crashed 2 planes before getting shot down, again smoothed over by daddy. When he got out of Vietnam he promptly divorced his first wife (Who got a sweetheart deal apparently) and married a beer heiress who could finance his political career. His political career has been douchy as gently caress but continues to bank on his being a POW. I already said Bergdahl and McCain were related in the loosest of terms.

It's hard to draw direct causation, but read the article about him published in the daily beast. It's written by a guy who served in the unit and details how resources were rerouted, operations changed, and invasive searching pissed off locals.

As long as the times refuse to change, we're going to make a hell of a racket.


I've heard people say that his status as a POW is over rated because it was a direct result of him not being a very good pilot and getting shot down all the time. I've never flown a plane into combat nor known anyone who has, so I have no idea if that story has any validity to it at all.
