Perhaps the most insane theory seen to date regarding Bowe Bergdahl was posited on Twitter yesterday by Brandon Friedman, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development. Friedman suggested that perhaps Bergdahl is not a deserter who may have actually aided the Taliban, but instead, was attempting to flee from a platoon full of "psychopaths."

And your evidence of this is...?

...

Because, yes, we all know how easy it is to get dozens of people to agree on the same, made-up story.

There are several documents suggesting he was a deserter, or worse, a traitor, plus he left a note and emailed his parents about how much he hated America, but okay, continue.

Fin.

Oh, but no worries guys, he quickly removed any evidence he's associated with the Obama administration from his Twitter.

Look, I'm not a fan of premature speculation either, but come on now. The evidence has been out there for years, and there's no shortage of documents and data about his actions prior to going AWOL. To libel Bergdahl's platoon mates as being "psychopaths" without a shred of evidence is jumping to a premature conclusion himself. This is demonstrating a complete lack of respect for American soldiers, and is absolutely disgusting.
