What do you think- does Bergdahl still matter?
Fixed your post.But there in lies my problem, we are a country that LOVES a hero and hates having to learn about the facts. My concern is that he will come home to a heroes welcome, whether he deserves it or not. I think back to Jessica Lynch, if we need a hero, we will manufacture a hero. The average American will have a hard time considering Sgt. Bergdahl a villian unless there is a very detailed case laid out.
Correct. My point was that the "machine" will create the scene to fit the image they want to portray...like in "Wag the Benghazi".
While I generally agree with your view of the situation, I wouldn't hold my breath for any kind of rigorous investigation into the circumstances of how he wound up in Taliban hands...Great!
And until I am led to believe otherwise, I will be anxiously awaiting his court martial for desertion.
I would like some proof before that happens though. e.g. interviews with his peers etc... We all "know" what happened, or think we do, but I'd like to see something solid on this. A google search of "bergdahl deserter" shows that the media has covered his actions which is good.He gets treated like a Hero if WE, the Military and Veterans of this country allow it.
Call the local talk show, post on the National Talk Show Host Pages (FB, et al) and let everyone know he DESERTED.
You can cut his 15 min of fame down to 4 or 5 min if WE are vocal.
