"According to Coast Guard records, Bergdahl left the service with an "uncharacterized discharge" after 26 days of basic training in early 2006."

Not the first guy to have that happen to them in the service, won't be the last. Hopefully some penicillin was able to help.

lilbjorn: BSABSVR: Bith Set Me Up: I thought Republicans loved Ayn Rand?

If Bergdahl really was a Randian, he will be right wing hero in 48 hours.

Only because it will take that long to spin the facts so that Obama is somehow still at fault.


Obama had to get Bergdahl away from the Taliban (aka his ideological brethren) before Bergdahl taught them about objectivism and how Obama is a usurper

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Begdahl pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Being a Randian is pretty much diagnostic for being crazy.

Of course, it's also diagnostic for being so stupid you have a brain disorder, which I guess is kind of crazy

Irving Maimway: factoryconnection: All these "revelations" that come and go seem to have conspired to make me feel the exact same way:
1. We as a country get our POWs back and sometimes that takes an unpleasant prisoner swap
2. If he's got personal, legal or professional problems, the solution to them didn't involve leaving him with the Haqqani Network.

Simple as that.

This is what even the right wing fellow veteran friends of mine don't get. We always have tried to get our POWs back. For John McCain to come out and decry this, when he was freed as part of a prisoner exchange laid out in farking writing in the Paris Peace Accord, is the height of either hypocrisy or being a pure douchenozzle. Or in his case maybe both at the same time.


Being a modern Republican.
Obama is playing them like a bugle.  He's just managed to make the Republicans prove that they put politics first, and to decry beards.

MFAWG: Cyclometh: Noam Chimpsky:  got several of his platoon killed trying to find him.

Stop vomiting this debunked lie.

I know somebody that was in the same battalion, and she says they lost 6 guys looking for him before they figured out he'd probably gone over the hill.

So you need to wrap your head around that.


Thank you, Simone.

This is clearly Obama's racism showing by putting white men below blacks.

A black man is worth 2/5 of a person, whereas this deal clearly shows Obama thinks a white man is worth only 1/5.

the one silver lining of the diarrhea tornado of outrage is that it's kind of entertaining to watch the right wing farkwits who think obama should be impeached for killing al awlaki argue that we should have sentenced a uniformed member of the armed forces in absentia to rot/die because the guy's dad had weird facial hair

whidbey: No surprise a stupid 3 trillion dollar dysfunctional foreign policy failure like Afghanistan/Iraq would launch crazy dysfunctional behavior to the forefront.


Where do you get your information?  The war paid for itself.  If not then why don't I see it in any talks about budgets in congress?  There's no way they just went and spent that off the general ledger without serious debate.  You expect me to believe that?

dittybopper: Somacandra: dittybopper: Even though we really don't know much solid about the Bergdahl case yet, we know enough to realize that there is a fundamental difference between the two  situations.

If we don't yet know enough to state the facts regarding the loss/capture of Bergfart, then by definition we do not know enough to tell whether there is a fundamental difference.

Sure we do.  We do know one walked away from his post and spent at a minimum at least 5 hours, and quite likely more, wandering around the Afghan countryside.

TIMELINE: 0430z BLACKFOOT TOC REPORTS SOLDIER IS MISSING
...
UPDATE: 1012z GUARDRAIL REPORTS PICKED UP LLVI TRAFFIC AT GRID VB 6597 3366 THAT STATES (UIM INDICATES THAT AN AMERICAN SOLDIER IS TALKING AND IS LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO SPEAKS ENGLISH. INDICATES AMERICAN SOLDIER HAS CAMERA)

So he goes missing sometime before 0430 Zulu time, and at 1012 Zulu a Guardrail aircraft reports "low level voice intercept" traffic about an American soldier who is walking around with a camera and looking for someone who speaks English.

This is a Guardrail RC-12 aircraft:

[dev.defense-update.com image 520x347]

It's specifically designed to intercept communications at a tactical level.  I have friends that have flown them (including missions in Iraq and Afghanistan).


Is that a cat detector plane? I've never seen so many bleedin' aerials...

Because I really needed to hear what a woman who quit halfway through her job had to say about a deserter.
