From Fox News.
The Army has decided to charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by Taliban-aligned militants last year in exchange for five Guantanamo prisoners, with desertion, according to a former military intelligence officer.
Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, who now works at the London Center for Policy Research, told Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday night that he’s learned of the military’s decision from two sources.
“The Army has come to its conclusion, and Bowe Bergdahl … will be charged with desertion,” he said.
Asked for comment on the claim, Army officials denied that any decision had been made. Spokesman Paul Boyce told Fox News on Tuesday that there is “no change” and that it is an “ongoing review at this time.”
……Shaffer said Bergdahl’s attorney has been given a “charge sheet” outlining the section of the military justice code Bergdahl allegedly violated.
……Shaffer said there’s a “huge battle” going on inside the Obama administration, as some try to “suppress” this development. “This is shaping up to be a titanic struggle behind the scenes,” he said.
Shaffer said the Army “wants to do the right thing,” but the White House “wants this to go away.”
He said: “The White House, because of the political narrative, President Obama cozying up to the parents and because of he, President Obama, releasing the five Taliban … The narrative is what the White House does not want to have come out.”

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is avoiding any direct acknowledgment: “No decision has been made with respect to the case of Sgt. Bergdahl,” (Rear Admiral John) Kirby said. “None. There is no timeline to make that decision…”
NBC also reported on the charges.
The cat’s out of the bag, muthafuckas.
Administering the proper punishment would make Obama look bad, and we can’t have that. Instead, Bergdahl got “therapy and counseling” and returned to active duty. Bad publicity is not welcome among Obama’s turd polishers in the media.
Dhimmi B. Hussein made a speech in the Rose Garden flanked by Bergdahl’s Taliban-schmoozing parents, slobbering over him as if he were just a misunderstood kid, but he had no such sympathy for the families of the Soldiers who sacrificed their lives looking for the little ratfuck. And of course, the five Taliban cutthroats Obama set free from GITMO in exchange for Bergdahl, will be eternally grateful for his generosity as they return to the battlefield to kill Americans. The swap, by the way, was against the law.
Obama’s staff tried to smear Bergdahl’s platoon for telling the truth. First they accused his fellow Soldiers of not being credible. When that failed, they accused them of “swift-boating”. Then came Plan C: They must be “psychopaths”.
Obama hopes the entire episode will just go away. He really thinks those who served honorably will forget the whole thing. We damned sure won’t.
I believe Lt. Col. Shaffer. Deserter/traitor Bergdahl has been charged. Kirby’s job is to function as a spokestool for the Obama regime.
