This should be the focus of a full investigation, and those responsible for the Army spreading this lie removed from their positions, if they’re still there.

If Obama was responsible, that needs to come out as well.

“A soldier’s perspective on Bergdahl,” by Chase Spears, Baltimore Sun, October 24, 2017:

Army Sgt.

The truth about Sergeant Bergdahl was suppressed at the cost of their peace of mind.

Though it was common knowledge inside the unit that Sergeant Bergdahl had deserted, the Army allowed the myth to perpetuate that he might have fallen behind on a patrol. Soldiers who knew the truth were afraid to speak up, out of fear that they would be punished….

Sergeant Bergdahl’s return to the U.S. resembled a well-orchestrated public relations campaign, complete with presidential Rose Garden ceremony and National Security Advisor Susan Rice telling ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on June 2, 2014, that Sergeant Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.” This prompted fury among those who knew the truth….
