Enlisting in the United States Army must’ve seemed like a good idea at the time. But did you know that being a soldier can really suck, you guys?
Writing from a Taliban “prison,” Bowe Bergdahl urged his family and his government to wait until they had all the facts before judging him for leaving his base. Then Bergdahl explained, at least in part, why he left his fellow troops in 2009.
“Leadership was lacking, if not non-existent. The conditions were bad and looked to be getting worse for the men that where actuly (sic) the ones risking thier (sic) lives from attack,” he writes in a letter dated March 23, 2013 and obtained by The Daily Beast. It’s one of two letters sent by Bergdahl to his parents during his five years held by the Taliban-allied Haqqani Network in the tribal region of Pakistan.
This lament is unique in the annals of military service, if you don’t count every single other fighting man and woman in the history of the world.
Bowe Bergdahl wasn’t having a good time in the Army, so he walked away. Now he’s back “home,” because his life is worth the lives of five terrorists.
His family loves him and misses him. Just as the families of the men who died trying to find him miss them. Sure, those guys actually served with honor and distinction, but did their parents get to hang out with Obama? They did not.
Honor. Distinction. In the Age of Obama, they’re as empty as Hope and Change.
Update: Not to question Hillary Clinton’s judgment, but here’s the dude she hired to
“assist in the response” to her stupid book.
Iraq is just a ploy to distract you from Bergdahl which distracted you from the VA scandal which distracted you from BENGHAZI. Idiots.
