Very often we are manipulated by the media and we don’t know the truth in many cases, however, sooner or later, the truth always surfaces. Former president Barack Obama created one liberal bubble and made us all live in it for years. But now, when the bubble is finally bursted and the new era is coming, we can expect all of those terrible truths that were hidden from us for so many years to emerge.
Now, the US soldier who was ‘labeled’ as a military hero and was held captive by the Taliban for five months decided to share the truth with the rest of the nation and accept his guilt.
Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has pled guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. He faces a potential life sentence.
From USA Today:
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier held by Taliban insurgents for nearly five years after abandoning his post in Afghanistan, said Monday he is pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
The Army will hold a hearing to determine the punishment for Bergdahl, who faces a potential life sentence on the misbehavior charge. He was scheduled to face a court-martial later this month.
He was charged with one count each of “desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty” and “misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place.”
Bergdahl’s case has generated a storm of controversy since the Obama administration reached a deal in 2014 to release the soldier in exchange for five Taliban militants held at Guantanamo Bay. The five militants were turned over to Qatar.
Obama held a Rose Garden ceremony with Bergdahl’s parents to announce their son’s release from captivity.
A report from a preliminary hearing held after his release recommended that the case be referred to a “special court-martial,” which is limited to imposing a one-year confinement.
But criticism of the deal began mounting. Soldiers who served with Bergdahl criticized the Army for not holding him to account for walking off his post, letting his fellow soldiers down and endangering the lives of platoon mates who searched for him in Afghanistan.
In 2015, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who chairs the Armed Services Committee, said he would hold hearings on the case if the Army didn’t impose punishment.

Can you spot the irony here? Senator John McCain was in the same situation more than 50 years ago, but he’s blaming others for sins he committed against the national values of the American people.
