Hero or Deserter?

Let me predicate this by I am glad that an American is not in the hands of the Taliban however; the immediate response upon his release has shed light that this cat may have not been a "hero" by any means of a definition.

If in fact this is true it further sheds light on the complete ineptness of this administration and its consistent attempt to hail anything as a foreign policy success.

Desertion during time of war is considered to be one of the most egregious acts of cowardice and is a kick in the gut to anyone in the military that has fought along side one another.

I very interested in how the administration spin doctors are going to sell this one. Granted, we should never leave our military in the hands of the enemy however; touting his release as another success is laughable at best. Furthermore it is complicit to have our president hail a deserter as a hero when lives were lost due to his acts of cowardice. I will also tell you something else; if you have never been in a combat situation depending on your left and right to have your six; YOU DON'T KNOW; PERIOD!!! If the allegations are convoluted and he was in fact a captive he should receive a hero's welcome. If he is a deserter he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the UCMJ and made an example of how deserters are dealt with. Harsh? maybe, but I take nothing back.

Although I do not agree with most viewpoints that disparage America, in this case there are some mitigating circumstances.

I would like to think that This is a Father trying to do whatever he can to secure the release of his Son. However; there seems to be some gray areas in his posts that allude that his Son may have come by his disillusionment "honestly"...

At the risk of contradicting my original post; I do get being willing to do whatever it would take to get my Son home. With this said, I still do not concur with blaming the "system" for his Son's demise.

My point with my original post was pointed more at the administration whitewash trying to portray the circumstances surrounding his "capture" and labeling Bergdaghl as a hero needing rescued.

The reality is that his Family is not going to care less as long as he is home and I get that. I do still feel that a legitimate inquiry needs to be conducted and if misconduct is discovered; he still needs to be held accountable for his actions. Anything less than that dishonors those that stand and fight alongside each other.
