Bowe Bergdahl hearing begins in Texas

Bowe Bergdahl is an American soldier, who was serving in Afghanistan.

On June 30, 2009 he was captured by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network, and held until the US agreed to release five members of the Taliban from Guantánamo Bay on May 31, 2014.

At first the homeschooled Buddhist from Idaho was welcomed home as a hero.

But soon America’s mood soured.

    Homeschooled Buddhist? Why would a Buddhist be so sympathetic to the bearded bastards who blew up the Bamiyan Buddhas? Hatred of America beats love of Buddha I guess.

    Oh well hopefully he’ll start a new career soon breaking big rocks into little rocks at Fort Leavenworth.

      It seems that his homeschooling was a failure if it were based on Buddhism. There is nothing in Buddhism to justify any sympathy with Muslim terrorists. I suspect his homeschooling was based in leftism rather than authentic Buddhism.

    “hailed as a hero” ? He was reviled by everyone I talked to. He was and is a traitor, a deserter and an America hater. The sooner he dies the better off the world will be.

    Good news for Canada’s favorite terrorist. The judge has allowed Omar Khader to visit his batshit crazy relatives. And he doesn’t have to wear that ankle bracelet anymore, because it is uncomfortable. Ahhhhhh, poor baby.

    Welcomed as a hero? Not by mainstream Americans, only by the islamist’s in the white hut and the lame stream media.
