A military judge decided Tuesday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl would be court-martialed in February under a new commander-in-chief as Barack Obama’s presidency comes to an end.I've seen military murder trials move faster than this. This MIGHT be on the level but it reeks.
Bergdahl’s case will be delayed from August to early 2017 so that disputes regarding the defense’s access to classified documents can be resolved , the Associated Pressreported.
Bergdahl, who was released during a prisoner swap last summer after spending five years as a Taliban prisoner in Afghanistan, faces charges of desertion and “misbehavior before the enemy” after walking off of his combat post. He faces a life sentence if convicted.
If I didn't know better I'd swear we're seeing a bit of inside baseball being played here. I'm not saying its coming from Army leadership, but it wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't coming from senior Pentagon officials. Do I have proof? None. But the slowness of this case is proof enough.
Something strange is going on here.
