The shark has officially been jumped by the left. Think Progress, the left wing site that has no intellectual honesty, actually has a post entitled “Did Sergeant Bergdahl Desert The Army Or Did The Army Desert Him?“
They allege that Bowe Bergdahl might have been mentally ill and the Army should have done a better job of dealing with him instead of letting him wander off base.
First, doesn’t that make Joe Scarborough’s comments about Bergdahl’s father exactly accurate?
Second, really? I mean really? The guy leaves the base in search of the Taliban and it is the army’s problem? This is desperate spin from desperate people who still can’t answer one question: why trade five terrorists for one deserter? No one is saying we should have left Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan.
I’m saying it, so consider that contention falsified. He got himself into the problem. Let him get himself out of it. And certainly don’t waste American lives on him, either the soldiers who died hunting for him after his desertion, or Americans who will die in the future at the hands of the Muslim barbarian savages we released to retrieve his worthless carcass so that Barack Obama could (he thought) score a big political triumph.
