The U.S. military officer in charge of last month's hearing for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has recommended he not do any jail time, Bergdahl's legal team says.Just plain fucking wow.
In a memorandum dated Friday, the legal team said it agreed with Lt. Col. Mark Visger's conclusion that their client be referred to a special court-martial and receive neither jail time nor a punitive discharge.
The recommendation, which hasn't been announced publicly by the U.S. military, is a significant development for Bergdahl, who in March was charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
But Visger's recommendation isn't "the final say," according to CNN legal analyst Danny Cevallos.
"The case still has to go up to command where another decision will be made whether to accept that recommendation," he said.
Good men died trying to save this bastard and a US Army General spits on their graves by saying that this despicable piece of shit doesn't deserve jail time?
I quite honestly don't know what to say....except to the families of the men that died and to the unit that got hung out to dry by Big Army leadership....I'm sorry.
Sidenote: Is it just me or do you smell politics all over this decision? A bad deal was cut to free this son of a bitch and now they have to try and cover for it. My mistake was to believe that Big Army would place the needs of its troops ahead of the politicians. How stupid can I be?
