After an lengthy military investigation into the activities of Bowe Bergdahl's behavior in Afghanistan, today, the UCMJ (Uniformed Code of Military Justice) has charged Bergdahl with desertion.
Below is a quote from the Washington Post regarding the charges. Six members of the military were killed in attempts to 'rescue' Bergdahl. But listen to what our president had to say the day Bowe Bergdahl was 'rescued'.... and Barack released FIVE TERRORISTS in exchange for this traitor!
Bergdahl will go before an Article 32 investigation (military version of a Grand Jury) and then tried in a military court for any charges deemed relevant.
How does that 'crow' taste, Barack?
Obama and Bergdahl's parents following the presser.....
Bergdahl will faces charges under articles 85 and 99 of the military’s Uniform Code of Military Justice....As an aside, late yesterday the Senate voted down Obama's budget in a 1-98 vote..... all together now: "AWWWWWWWW"
Article 85, desertion, applies to a service member who “quits his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to avoid hazardous duty or to shirk important service.” The maximum sentence for those convicted is death, although no soldier has faced that punishment since 1944, when Pvt. Eddie Slovik was executed by a firing squad after running away from combat duty in France.
Article 99, misbehavior before the enemy, applies to a service member who has run away in the face of the enemy, abandoned his unit, cast aside his weapon or ammunition or willfully failed “to do his utmost to encounter, engage, capture, or destroy any enemy troops, combatants, vessels, aircraft, or any other thing, which it is his duty so to encounter, engage, capture, or destroy.”
