Bowe Bergdahl: A Traitor's Welcome

Splashed across the headlines this weekend has been the homecoming of POW Bowe Bergdahl, who has been held captive in Afghanistan for the past five years. Here's a sample of the reporting:

The locals of Hailey, Idaho, filled Sherry Horton's wine bar and uncorked champagne Saturday in celebration of hometown hero Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release in Afghanistan after nearly five years in enemy captivity.

"It's very exciting," said Horton, a friend and former roommate of Bergdahl. "We're all still kind of walking around on clouds. We're all just waiting to get eyes on him. That's going to be a topper."

Now you might ask yourself, just who is Bowe Bergdahl, and how did he end up captured in the first place? And how in the world could an American soldier be kept in captivity in Afghanistan for 5 years with so little publicity, when, by contrast, a soldier held in a Mexican prison since March on gun-possession charges has been given tremendous coverage?

Silence, fascist pig dogs!!! The Messiah and Chief's press statement contains all the information you need to know, and not a jot more. Quoting:

Sergeant Bergdahl has missed birthdays and holidays and the simple moments with family and friends, which all of us take for granted. But while Bowe was gone he was never forgotten.

Correct - he was remembered for just the right moment when a distraction was needed from a military scandal. Heard anything lately about Veterans Affairs? No? Good. Keep it that way.

Now I know there will be some doubters out there who simply refuse to swallow their pablum like good little sheeple. So here are the inconvenient facts for which you can be put under indefinite detainment in Bowe's father's beard bramble. For your own welfare, be sure not to discuss them:

1) Bowe Bergdahl is alleged to have walked away from his unit and into the hands of his captors. He was not captured in the line of duty.
2) Bowe Bergdahl decried the United States Army as: "an army of liars, backstabbers, fools, and bullies." And this before he was alleged to have gone AWOL.
3) "If this deployment is lame," Bowe said, "I'm just going to walk off into the mountains of Pakistan."

Sounds suspiciously like a traitor, doesn't it? But not in Topsy Turvy World where we now live, where Bowe Bergdahl is welcomed home as a hero after deserting his post.
