ALERT: Deserter Bergdahl TRASHES America, Praises This Terrorist Group… Look What He Said!

Huny Badger AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant who pleaded guilty Monday to deserting his post in Afghanistan in 2009, says his Taliban captors were more “honest” with him than the Army has been since his release three years ago.

“At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat,’ ” Bergdahl tells British TV journalist Sean Langan in an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine of London headlined “The Homecoming from Hell.”

Langan, too, is a former Taliban hostage.

Bergdahl, 31, from Hailey, Idaho, says he never quite knew where he stood with the Army as he performed “administrative duties” while awaiting his desertion trial.

“Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for life,’’ he says. “We may as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs.”

Bergdahl is expected to appear for sentencing Monday in a military courtroom in Fort Bragg, N.C., after pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

He could face life in prison.

Bergdahl was freed from the Taliban in May 2014 in a highly criticized deal in which the Obama administration agreed that the U.S. would release five Taliban terrorists in exchange.

President Donald Trump harshly criticized Bergdahl during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance is the judge who will decide Bergdahl’s fate. Factors expected to weigh into the sentence are Bergdahl’s years spent as a hostage, and the serious wounds that some U.S. service members suffered while searching for Bergdahl.

Despite surviving five years in a Taliban cage, Bergdahl, Trump said in several campaign speeches as a presidential candidate, was a “traitor” who should be executed.

In an on-camera interview shot last year by a British filmmaker, obtained exclusively by ABC News and airing today on “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight With David Muir” and “Nightline,” Bergdahl says the words of the man who is now his commander in chief would have made a fair trial impossible.

Bergdahl, a 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment trooper, walked off his combat outpost in Afghanistan in June 2009 and was quickly captured by the Taliban. During his five years in captivity with the Haqqani Network — the same Taliban faction that held American Caitlan Coleman and her family hostage for five years until they were freed last Wednesday — he endured what one U.S. official called the worst case of prisoner abuse since the Vietnam War.

He was released in 2014 in exchange for five Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo Bay — a deal that was harshly criticized on the campaign trail by then-candidate Trump, who called Bergdahl “garbage” and even suggested that he should have been summarily executed.

“You know, in the old days — bing, bong,” Trump said as he mimicked firing a rifle. “When we were strong.”

In 2014, then–Fox News correspondents Megyn Kelly and James Rosen reported on “secret documents” obtained by the network that purported to show Bergdahl had “shown affection” for his captors, converted to Islam and become a “mujahid,” or jihadi.

According to Bergdahl, however, he thought the conditions in captivity might kill him before his captors could.

“It was getting so bad that I was literally looking at myself, you know, looking at joints, looking my ribs and just going, ‘I’m going to die here from sickness, or I can die escaping,'” he says. “You know, it didn’t really matter.”

Another senior official who spoke to Langan for his documentary was retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who, as the former head of intelligence for special operations in Afghanistan and then as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, was deeply involved in the early search for Bergdahl.

He also briefly served as Trump’s national security adviser after working on his campaign, and he tells Langan that he “absolutely” believes Bergdahl left his base with the intention to meet the Taliban.

But Bergdahl disputes that, saying in a taped conversation with filmmaker Mark Boal that was broadcast in the second season of the “Serial” podcast that he walked off post in an attempt to report to senior officers that his platoon commander was “unfit” for his position.

Bergdahl has not been charged with any crime related to aiding the enemy.

Whatever his reasons were, at least two soldiers were seriously wounded during the search to find him, as ABC News first reported in 2014. In response to questions from Army Judge Col. Jeffery Nance on Monday, Bergdahl admitted multiple times that he did not fully appreciate the enormity of his actions.

“At the time, I had no thoughts anyone would come searching for me … however looking back I see it was a very obvious mistake,” Bergdahl said. “I believed they would notice me missing, but I didn’t think they would pull off a crucial mission to look for one private.”

After his guilty plea, the question remaining before the military is what form of punishment Bergdahl deserves. On that question, even Flynn doubts that justice would be best served by putting a former prisoner back in prison.

“So the guy deserted his men, his soldiers, his squad — no doubt,” Flynn says. “[But] I don’t think he should serve another day in any sort of confinement or jail or anything like that, because frankly, even though he put himself into this situation to a degree, we — the United States government and the United States military — put him in Afghanistan.”

This is how I see it, nobody can trust what is coming out of his mouth at this point.  He has been contaminated over the years by Obama administration and lawyers.

He made a choice, and his choice was to abandon his post which put every single soldier there at risk.  He is a traitor to the uniform, to his nation and to me, the darkest of his crimes, he betrayed his brothers he served with.  Soldiers died looking for him.  Firing squad is in order.

UCMJ Article 85:

Any member of the armed forces who:

(1) without authority, goes or remains absent from his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to remain away therefrom permanently; or
(2) quits his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to avoid hazardous duty or to shirk important service
The charge of desertion is more aggravated if it is committed in time of war or to avoid hazardous service.

(3) without being regularly separated from one of the armed forces enlists or accepts an appointment in the same or another one of the armed forces without fully disclosing the fact that he has not been regularly separated, or enters any foreign armed service except when authorized by the United States; is guilty of desertion.

(b) Any commissioned officer of the armed forces who, after tender of his resignation and before notice of its acceptance, quits his post or proper duties without leave and with intent to remain away therefrom permanently is guilty of desertion.

(c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.
