US Opens Bowe Bergdahl Investigation

BBC -The US military has opened an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Sgt Bowe Bergdahl’s disappearance from an Afghan outpost.

The Army has appointed Maj General Kenneth Dahl, who served in combat in Afghanistan, to lead the investigation.

Sgt Bergdahl returned to the US after five years in captivity on Friday.

Shortly after his release, several commentators and soldiers came forward to brand him a deserter and call for him to be punished.

The Pentagon has previously concluded Sgt Bergdahl walked off base in Paktika province without authorisation, but officials have not determined whether he intended to desert.

Sgt Bergdahl, 28, was flown from a military hospital in Germany to Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas on Friday, where he will complete the final phase of the reintegration process.

He was released by the Taliban in late May in exchange for five Guantanamo Bay detainees, a move that has been criticised by some lawmakers in the US.

    I don’t know why we are even bother with an investigation as this soldier has already be ‘CONVICTED BY THE MEDIA AND FB’. Don’t worry about whether it is fact or fiction. Let’s make it up as we go.

      Look carefully at the media and you’ll see just how effective they are at manipulating public opinion… simply look at the Obama campaign as testament to this fact; it was nothing short of mass brainwashing.

      Truth… would this really come from the Government? Who’s to say he’s not a CIA operative rather than a deserter?

      So many questions, so many theories and so much conjecture that the truth is likely never to come out.
