Another part of the objection was the Rose Garden shtick ... and the Sr. Bergdahl praising Allah as part of that. Can you imagine how the parents of Ty Woods and Glen Doherty (both also military) might have reacted about that? We already know that the parents of at least one of the soldiers who died looking for Bergdahl isn't happy with it.
Finally, I believe it's doubtful that Bergdahl will serve one day in the brig. Obama will pressure the military not to have that court martial. If that can't be done, he'll find another way out; maybe pardon him. He has to do that to prove that he was right after all, even if it means a few lies.
I read the whole Rolling Stones article. It could be that the author was biased. I don't know that for a fact. He does appear to be taking Bergdahl's depictions as gospel. Did he try to get the other side of the story?
What do I know though? I'm just one of "the fools here".

I thought that a couple of these guys turned themselves in. they have been out of the game for so long, will they even recognize the Taliban of today as opposed to the Taliban of their time before being put in jail? Putting them back into the game now, would be like bringing Brett Favre back to face Aaron Rodgers. They'd get taken out of the game pretty quickly because they couldn't hang on the battlefield.
I will ask again, why is it ok for Obama to target an american with a drone strike without due process, but he justifies trading for a obvious deserter so he can bring him home to face justice?

BTW this is a very poor comparison. This, this is not a direct comparison to Clinton but leaders of countries in general. However, Hitler and Stalin had pretty high ratings by their people as well.
