Update on Bowe Bergdahl: Allegations of Desertion

Michelle Malkin has a comprehensive analysis, "Questions about the Reported Abduction of Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl; Update: Reports of Desertion Mounting":
My prayers are with the family of Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier seen on the Taliban abduction video released this weekend. The Jawa Report has the full clip.

All Americans should hope and pray for his release from jihadi custody.

There’s one question I have, though, about
strange details initially reported on the case — details which have been deleted from later wire dispatches ...

Read the whole thing, here. Also, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters argues for a hard penalty if it's shown Bergdahl abandoned his unit:
I want to be clear. If, when the facts are in, we find out that through some convoluted chain of events, he really was captured by the Taliban, I’m with him. But, if he walked away from his post and his buddies in wartime, I don’t care how hard it sounds, as far as I’m concerned, the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills.
I wrote about Bergdahl previously, "Private Bowe Bergdahl in Taliban Captivity (VIDEO)."

There are so many conspiracies going around about Bowe currently. News organizations and "analysts" all have their idea of how it happened. However, he is still an American soldier captured by the enemy. Until anything is proven, like "working for the enemy," he deserves the US full attention to be brought home.

The fact that you posted Peters' video without comment, says a lot about you.
