Thirty-one-year old Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who had been kept in captivity by Taliban in Afghanistan for five years after having left his post had pleaded guilty to desertion. Now he is awaiting being sentenced in Fort Bragg in N.Y. He might face life in presence.
Bowman was freed after President Obama had agreed to release five Taliban terrorists in exchange. I have reported about that moment here. It had reminded me of the fate of Daniel Perle and Nick Berg who had been killed by al-Qaida terrorists in 2002 and 2004, respectively. Bergdahl was lucky that he survived his captivity.
President Trump had called Bergdahl a “no-good traitor” who would have been executed “in the old days” when campaigning for presidency.
