Now that he has been released, should Bowe Bergdahl be tried for desertion?
Bowe Bergdahl, the only POW from the war in Afghanistan was released yesterday when the US agreed to trade five Taliban leaders in exchange for Bergdahl’s freedom. By all accounts the circumstances surrounding his capture are murky, with many sources, including this detailed article from Rolling Stone, saying he voluntarily walked off the base straight into custody of the Taliban. At this point I have heard very little about this aspect of the story. Do you think we’ll hear more about this part of the story? Should/will Mr. Bergdahl be held accountable for desertion?
