So all you good folk do not trust the military justice system?
You have knowledge that it did not have?
You know more than the investigating officers? Remarkable.
Get over yourselves and your Faux News mythology. He pled to desertion, and is going to be in prison for a very long time.
Your ghoulish desire to see him executed is ugly.
October 22, 2017,8:49 pm
He should face a firing squad instead of prison
October 21, 2017,3:05 pm
Those representing the 3% of No votes are clueless. They have apparently never been in the military (and ever if they are/were) have no understanding what-so-ever regarding commitment and integrity to your batallion comrades with whom you served. Let us not forget some confirmed facts. Bergdahl pretty much announced his intent to desert and walk away from his battalion. Secondly, six of his own battalion mates were killed in the ensuing search for him. Then ultimately downstream … when his “Captors” decided to barter Bergdahl for the Return of Five of their captured and imprisoned Terrorist combatants (In Guantanamo Bay prison) our stupid Commander in Chief (who it might be added had a goal of closing Gitmo) Traded for Bergdahl’s release. It has been confirmed upon release from Gitmo, at least three of the enemy combatants have returned to the fight with their mission to continue killing infidels. (a.k.a. American citizens)

Bowe Bergdahl is a traitor and should either be hanged or placed before a firing squad. He is a worthless soul. Obama should also be executed along with this traitor. Birds of a feather flock together.
October 18, 2017,5:14 pm
He pled guilty to avoid a trial so that Obama wouldn’t be called to testify. Wonder what kind of deal was made?
October 18, 2017,2:00 pm
He is a traitor and should be sentenced to life in prison w/o parole.
October 18, 2017,1:38 pm
Death penalty. period
October 18, 2017,12:03 pm
What about the good men who died looking for this traitor. Their deaths are directly his fault! He should be shot for treason and the murders of his fellows in arms.
October 18, 2017,1:34 am
Duh. Yes. He’s a traitor. Where’s the poll on Harvey Weinstein? Did I miss it? It’s crazy how many jewish perverts there is. I’m not anti-Semitic. Jews went after the priests during the Catholic scandals. It’s only fair we do the same. It’s a long list: Jerry Springer, Eliot Spitzer, Woody Allen, Anthony Weiner and that repulsive man that created boy bands such as N’Sync. Judaism needs ask its self what’s happening to their men. And that was my short list. I don’t have time to list all the jew pervs I know of in show business.
October 17, 2017,4:44 pm
he should be shot, he is a deserter and a traitor.
October 17, 2017,1:38 pm
He pleaded “guilty ” to deserting his post & should be stripped of his uniform & any monies he has collected between his release & his guilty plea.
October 17, 2017,1:21 pm
a dirty traitor in exchange for five taliban butchers. not a good trade!!!!
October 17, 2017,12:31 pm
Doesn’t look like anybody has mentioned that along with being a traitor to USA, his commander, Barack Obama, let 5 of the most hostile type of haters to the USA go for his release. And now he’s got a platform to accuse the President of the USA who actually knows what the USA stands for. A president that didn’t grow up under Muslim Fascism or Communist Anti-Christian teaching, or just plain hatred of the USA. If Bergdahl isn’t a traitor, the question is, “Who is a traitor?” Remember, it comes down from leadership? The former President of the USA, Barack Obama, was “colluding” with the enemy to destroy the USA military. Forgive Bergdahl but punish him for his behavior. Others need to see what happens to those who try to destroy the people of these United States.
October 17, 2017,4:23 am
He mailed his personal items home and then walked away from his duty post. By his own admission he sought out the enemy and colluded with them.
October 17, 2017,1:19 am
Put him to dead along with his Ugly looking parent.
October 16, 2017,11:14 pm
of course he is a WORTHLESS TRAITOR, AND DESERVES A TRAITORS REWARD, A GOOD HEMP ROPE.
October 16, 2017,10:17 pm
Bergdahl is a national disgrace and a traitor and as such should be executed for willfully joining the enemy in wartime AND putting his fellow soldiers at increased risk of their lives for his worthless. one period.
October 16, 2017,9:13 pm
BILL, he deserted, IF he joined the enemy–THAT’S CLASSIC TREASON! U.S. Supreme Court has held in past–IF you join foreign army fight AGAINST THE U.S., YOU have VOLUNTARILY SURRENERED YOUR CITIZENSHIP–one of only ways a NATURAL born citizen can LOSE citizenship. CITIZENSHIP cannot be taken by Federal government EXCEPT for “naturalized aliens” OR the voluntary act of the INDIVIDUAL citizen who takes up arms for a foreign country over U.S..
October 16, 2017,8:59 pm
Of course he is. And as per usual, Obama glorified him and his parents and did nothing! He should be court martialed!
October 16, 2017,8:59 pm
Put Him In Leavenworth for Life, Those Boys Will Love Him.
October 16, 2017,8:54 pm
He needs to be jailed after he is dishonorable discharge. He should not be allowed to wear this uniform
October 16, 2017,8:39 pm
He left his post and as a result some of his comrades were killed. At the very least he deserves a dishonorable discharge. After deserting, he dwelled among the enemy, apparently well fed and cared for. Perhaps he was just trying to survive, but his cowardice says little for him. Whether or not he’s a traitor will be something for the court to decide. Obama turned a blind eye to the situation because he’s void of any knowledge concerning the military. One more reason he should never have been elected.
October 16, 2017,8:12 pm
I am not an expert on military justice, but I believe there is a difference between desertion and being a traitor.
So no surprise that CBC asks about the charge that is worse, even when he has pled to desertion.
Lame poll for lame people.
October 16, 2017,8:06 pm
Barbara carpenter, you are not even human. Prison but no firing squad
October 16, 2017,7:24 pm
I served for 13 years. He is guilty and should be put infront of a firing squad.
October 16, 2017,7:09 pm
October 16, 2017,6:49 pm
He should be shot, (BY LAW) but they wont even let our firing squads carry a loaded gun.
October 16, 2017,6:43 pm
At this point, there are 2% that say NO. Who let the stupid Dems vote on something any and every patriotic American knows signifies treason? Lord, I’m so glad I’m not a Dem/Lib/Prog/Commie.
October 16, 2017,5:43 pm
He should be prosecuted for Treason and The Murder of his fellow soldiers who went looking for him after he deserted his post!! Life in Prison is what he deserves!!
October 16, 2017,5:08 pm
16 rifle sendoff!!!!!!!
October 16, 2017,4:54 pm
Yes! Just as Hilzilla Clinton, oboma, his man partner, and liberals in congress. Guantanamo bay for all, for life!!! Hanoi Jane fonda for all she did during the Vietnam War that exposed our military!! If we round up all the traitors and put them in prison it may stop some of the idiots we have today disrespecting our National Anthem and FLAG.
October 16, 2017,4:53 pm
He is a coward that caused the death of his buddies.
October 16, 2017,4:49 pm
October 16, 2017,4:37 pm
He deserves the highest punishment given for causing his comrades unnecessary deaths of what he did.
October 16, 2017,4:34 pm
He deserves the death penalty for leaving his post in time of war!! POS
October 16, 2017,4:32 pm
TRAITORS are SHOT. Why should Bergdahl be any different. IF he is given the
sentence of death by firing squad BO should be right next to him.
October 16, 2017,4:32 pm
I agree totally with the prior posts.I believe he convinced his new buddies he could return to the USA and spy for them. Both are grounds to have him executed. He has lived here fighting against being sent to prison, but.his military buddies who lost their lives because he was too sorry can’t be interviewed and be treated as if.he was someone who mattered, because GOD does not give them passes to come back to their lives, just because they lost theirs’ due to a traitor. When did the rules of combat change?
October 16, 2017,4:30 pm
Every deserter is a traitor because he betrays the people he abandoned and the person who had to replace him.
October 16, 2017,4:29 pm
Why are they even asking a question like this? Of course he is a traitor! He probably got our guys hurt or even worse out looking for him! He should have been rotting in jail a long time ago!!
October 16, 2017,4:10 pm
Give him the firing squad he’s a dam trader that got real American’s soldiers killed
October 16, 2017,4:08 pm
Not only a TRAITOR, but a coward also
October 16, 2017,4:07 pm
How can there ever be a question like this? By his own admission, he is a traitor. Wonder what he means, when he said, he can’t get a fair trial? He should not have been brought back, to the States. He should have been shot, by a firing squad, made up from the men in his unit he put in harm’s way. Can’t understand, what took so long, for his trial. Looks like, he was living in the lap of luxury. He should have been, kept in a dirty dungeon filled with rats.
October 16, 2017,4:01 pm
Should be court marshalled and then shot!
October 16, 2017,3:57 pm
Death penalty to him
October 16, 2017,3:14 pm
