[Ed. – Speaking for myself: I see Bergdahl’s retention on active duty partly as a way to keep him under seal. Yes, he has to be retained on active duty if he’s going to be charged and court-martialed. But as long as he wears the uniform, he can’t blab to the media — at least, if he does, he can be shut down and charged. That said, we don’t want to forget the narrative the Obama administration is trying to play out: that Bergdahl’s a hero.]
Having completed therapy and counseling after five years in captivity in Afghanistan, Bergdahl will reportedly work at the Army North headquarters at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.
Army officials say it’s “part of his reintegration into Army life,” and that Bergdahl will even live in barracks with other personnel.
One can only assume those personnel will be hand-picked to go along with this charade and not cause trouble for the Obama Administration – who traded five of the most dangerous terrorists in the world to get Bergdahl back.
To make sure the story goes as outlined, two soldiers will be assigned “to assist” Bergdahl, and at some point he’ll meet with investigators who supposedly are investigating his walking away from his Afghanistan outpost in 2009.
My guess is that theses “investigators” will find some explanation other than desertion for Bergdahl walking away from his fellow soldiers, despite many of them today saying he is a traitor and should be court martial-ed. Some former members of his unit have publicly accused him of deserting his post.
Meanwhile – I wonder where those five high-level Taliban terrorists are? They were supposed to be within arm’s reach with the reliable country of Qatar keeping close tabs on them.
