Military selects rarely used charge for Bergdahl case

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Military prosecutors have reached into a section of military law seldom used since World War II in the politically fraught case against Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier held prisoner for years by the Taliban after leaving his post in Afghanistan.

Observers wondered for months if Bergdahl would be charged with desertion after the deal brokered by the U.S. to bring him home. He was — but he was also charged with misbehavior before the enemy, a much rarer offense that carries a stiffer potential penalty in this case.

“I’ve never seen it charged,” Walter Huffman, a retired major general who served as the Army’s top lawyer, said of the misbehavior charge. “It’s not something you find in common everyday practice in the military.”

    King Imam Obama thought that he cold spew his lies to the media and once repeated enough times the public and Military would accept it as the truth .

    But the evidence and facts scream for a Treason Charge that should include Imam Obama who has broken the laws several times and refuses to order the FBI to arrest the Mayor’s of the sanctuary Cities that harbour illegals.

  • He should’ve been shot a long time ago.

    Obama’s press conference with Bowe’s parents at the White House can only mean a presidential pardon now. After all Lord God Supreme Being Field Marshal Obama has something like Divine Infallibility. He is simply never wrong.

      One feels guilty admitting that one has prayed that the Cancer Fairy visits Barry Obama real soon.
