Top Army brass upholds no-prison sentence for Traitor Bowe Bergdahl

Nance had said he would still be able to hand down a fair sentence, despite comments made by President Donald Trump that Bergdahl was a “traitor.” Nance had delayed the start of the hearings by two days when the defense filed a last-minute motion over comments Trump had made in the past as a candidate, and again as...

  2. Treason is treason, no matter what anyone says publicly.
    The Army's politically correct perfumed princes kissed obama's ass and let bergdahl off the hook for treason and desertion. The Army brass have no integrity or honor.

  4. I just wonder what the effect of the Obama purge on Military leadership did to the military and if this is a symptom of his attempt to turn the Military into a progressive issues machine.
