Bowe Bergdahl’s possible motive in alleged desertion revealed

Then Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban, and became the only US prisoner of war for years before he was released in prisoner exchange with Taliban. The search for him led to the deaths of fellow soldiers, military officials have argued. Bergdahl now faces a court-martial on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy follow.

Bowe Bergdahl, originally from Idaho, was once based in Alaska and he has become the most wanted soldier missing in action since Vietnam war.

On the Thursday’s discussion panel, former Sgt. John Rice, who served with Bowe Bergdahl in the same unit, discussed the controversial circumstances surrounding his release from captivity by the Taliban.

“Bergdahl had said he wanted to essentially, not join the Taliban, but he wanted to be similar to a reporter that’s embedded in the Taliban and he wanted to write a book about it,” he said during the panel.

During the discussion, he was asked about justice, and what “justice” would look like for Bergdahl’s case. The panelists expressed a desire for him to stand trial.

“The only thing I want is for him to stand trial and for him to be found guilty, dishonorably discharged, stripped of rank, stripped of rewards,” said Rice.

“The idea that he’s actually going to see a trial in August of 2016, at this point I’m willing to call that a win,” Nick Tabaczka, who also served in the same Company as Bergdahl, said.

The open question remains could it be different for many fellow soldiers who sacrificed their lives in search-and-rescue missions which followed through years?
