FLASHBACK: McCaskill Was ‘Very Proud’ of Deal That Freed Deserter Bergdahl

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty of desertion according to reports.

NTK:  Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl “is expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, ” according to an Associated Press report. Immediately after Bergdahl was freed, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) praised President Obama for his decision to exchange five Taliban commanders for Bergdahl.

Bergdahl who was held captive by the Taliban for five years after he deserted his post in Afghanistan was turned over to the U.S. after President Obama released “five Taliban commanders from the Guantanamo prison in exchange for” Bergdahl.

Over the years, several American soldiers died during multiple attempts to find and free Bergdahl. After he was released, soldiers who served with Bergdahl expressed their disappointment with the prisoner swap.

“I was pissed off then, and I am even more so now with everything going on,” former Sgt. Matt Vierkant, a member of Bergdahl’s platoon told CNN in 2014 about the deal. “Bowe Bergdahl deserted during a time of war, and his fellow Americans lost their lives searching for him.”

However, President Obama’s deal was immediately met with praise from McCaskill.

  1. According to Politics1, there are only 14 republicans campaigning against her for next year’s election. Not sure who, if anyone, is viable but the bergdahl issue should be as damaging to the old bat as Ben Ghazi was for Hillary.

  2. Positive superlatives for whatever democrats do, negative superlatives for everything Republicans do.

    That’s how political marketing works. That’s the only reason they put these people on camera.

  3. DOING STUPID THINGS IS ON PURPOSE

    Since liberals can’t form a revolution and forcibly install communism, they wear down the population with disgust so that THEY will form a revolution, and then the liberals will swoop in and install communism. It’s like the lazy animal waits for the smarter animal to make the kill, then sneaks in and takes the prey.

    Either way, they need a revolution by somebody to get the gears in motion.

  4. To be fair, the Senator was blissfully ignorant about Sgt. Bergdahl. She likes to maintain that state of blissful ignorance about everything else she does. That way she maintains a consistent front on all the issues.

  5. Bergdahl served with “Honor And Distinction”? That is what Susan Rice stated.
    She also spun the false narrative of Benghazi.

    Not one person in the Obama Whitehouse considered Bergdahl’s actions, desertion, treason, deaths and serious life altering injuries suffered by those in the Army attempting to rescue him.

    The defense proposes Bergdahl receive a lesser sentence that reflects the time the Taliban held him under brutal conditions. His actions have consequences, he owns that. The time he spends in a Military Prison should severely outweigh any conditions he may have dealt with by the islamic terrorists he so willingly sought.

    Personally, he should face a firing squad, as all traitors/deserters in the time of war deserve.

  6. Whichever GOP candidate wins the nomination they should be able to destroy this old bag with just a few well directed ads using her own words and the effect of Obama’s releasing 5 Taliban warlords. Get friends of the troopers that were killed trying to find this mutt as well and make sure McCaskill is front and centre in each and every one.

  7. Since she obviously lacks any discernment or character, it is not surprising that she heaped praise on this traitorous deserter. God will judge her harshly.

  8. This fuckstick deserts a private, plays nice with the enemy, gets terrorists traded for him, and hahas false praise heaped upon him and dis student suddenly by virtue of time alone he is promoted to sergeant. No effort, no maintaining good performance, nothing to earn it. There are soldiers or there ego worked very hard to make sergeant, and this ass hole just gets it handed to him. He has no business being addressed by that rank.

  9. Bergdahl is another one who needs to make sure he’s home by nightfall, and to never, ever be alone in dark alleys. There are many, many troops who would love to put a boot up his ass.
