"Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post in a combat zone; nothing else matters."
This Bergdahl thing gets uglier and uglier.
I feel for the young guys and gals serving now.
The opening paragraphs pretty much sum up the whole thing...

"It’s a moral contradiction like no other.
Bowe Bergdahl stands accused of deserting his post to cavort with the enemy. Sergeant Charles Martland stands accused of forcefully removing a child rapist from a U.S. military base in order to defend a child.
Bergdahl was treated as a hero by the Obama Administration. The Administration went so far as to release five Taliban terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay to secure his release to further the Administration’s objective of closing that military detention facility.
Sergeant Martland – a decorated Green Beret – may be kicked out of the military because he was willing to stand up and defend a child, a child who was sexually abused by an Afghan commander.
Both happened in Afghanistan. Both involve deeply moral questions. And both this Administration is coming down firmly in the morally reprehensible camp."
