Bergdahl sentencing hearing delayed

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (Reuters) – The sentencing hearing for U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who could go to prison for life for deserting his duties in Afghanistan in June 2009 and endangering the lives of fellow troops, was postponed on Monday for two days due to an emergency for a lawyer in the case.

The proceedings at North Carolina’s Fort Bragg will resume on Wednesday, Army Judge Colonel Jeffery Nance said in court.

    Pls explain to me again why this deserting traitor that directly caused the deaths of good soldiers isn’t being hung.

    Rope, tree, traitorous deserter; some assembly required. I suspect too, there are plenty of vets, who be more than willing to serve on a firing squad detail, were the call for such be put out.

    How did he get to be seargent?
    I bet the men under his command were chuffed when he scarpered.

    A deserter who willingly sought out islamic terrorists is not a POW. They are traitors.
    The Weak kneed, politically appointed Generals bowed to the islamic wishes of Obama.
    He deserves 8 tax payer relief shots to the chest, as soon as possible.

    WTF does Trump have to do with any of this? Just hang the son of a bitch already.

      Defense attorneys are trying to work the “undue influence of the chain of command” angle to ed-legitimiize the sentencing and hopefully the underlying conviction.

    Shoot the son of a bitch! Trump’s comments have no relevance to this case just like obama’s comments do not have anything to do with this case.


If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
