Yesterday it was announced alleged deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will return to active duty and a desk job at Fort Sam Houston after completing a series of mental tests. Just two months ago, Bergdahl was exchanged in Afghanistan for five high level Taliban members and was welcomed home as a hero by the Obama administration.
Last night on Hannity Bergdahl's former platoon mate, Army Specialist Cody Full, expressed his frustration with the situation and said he wants to see Bergdahl held accountable for his actions. Further, nobody has contacted Full or other platoon mates to ask questions about the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl's disappearance, which calls into question whether the administration is investigating Bergdahl as a deserter at all.
"I think the Army needs to do what's right here and abide by the Army values and he [Bergdahl] needs to face consequence for his action. Not only is it a slap in the face to all the men and women who have served honorably, who upheld their oath and it's also a bad precedent to set toward future service members," Full said.
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters also warned last night on Fox News that the administration is about to set a dangerous precedent that desertion, an action viewed by the military as one of the worst a soldier can take, is no big deal.
UPDATE: According to WSJ, Bergdahl is still refusing to speak to his parents.
