Damed If You Do, Damned If You Don"t
Remember the outrage? Me neither. Look, if Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post the Army will deal with him appropriately. The standard remains the same, we don't leave Americans behind. After last night's briefing for Congressional members, where they were shown the proof of life video of Bergdahl from December, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Idiot) told the waiting media that, and I'm paraphrasing here, he didn't think Bergdahl's physical condition on the video rose to the level needed to make a trade for him. In other words Senator, you would rather he was a little closer to death before we made an attempt to secure his release?
Ask yourself this: What would these same assholes be saying today if Bergdahl had been beheaded in another jihadist propaganda video?
