Does anyone really know why Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl left his base in Afghanistan five years ago? Could it be he went to visit a family he cared for, or a person he was worried about, and was taken captive? In the world of endless news cycles, it seems everyone is guilty immediately. What a sorry statement on the media, and on the principle that everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Apparently the Taliban believes that one U.S. soldier is worth five goons who’ve been dining at taxpayer expense. That ratio sounds about right to me. Have we forgotten Vietnam? No soldier should be left behind! As a bonus, wouldn’t it be great to implant tracking devices in the five rats!
