    Trashing soldiers. Well done — this is the day to do it.

    Cheap shot Benson.For shame.Born in 1954 were you? How was Viet-Nam? I guess if you were a Vet you might have some reason to slam Bergdahl. But if you were a Vet I’d actually expect better of you than this. I have to admit, it’s better than your Timothy McVeigh piece.

    Clinton? He was only a draft doger and a Democrat. Oh, and a rapist.
    Steve, great work.

    Ahhh yes…that old right-wing maxim surfaces once again:
    Republicans are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
    Democrats are innocent until accused in the media.

    How can you defend this piece of fecal waste, a firing squad is just about right

    Low class, Benson. We usually get much better from you.

    So Patton was right to slap that soldier, and Eisenhower was wrong to make him apologize.

    First the Republicans hammer the President for NOT getting B released, then because he did. Plus he got rid of 5 more from Gitmo and came one step closer to getting the place shut down. Now the Republicans are against what they were for before – typical hypocrites.

    The opening scenes of “Saving Private Ryan” were controversial, and famous for the depiction of what happened to our troops in the slaughter on Omaha Beach, and of course, that those same folks who faced this, were sent on a mission to rescue ONE MAN, losing more lives in the effort.

    On this D-Day, I’m reminded that many stories of war are ONLY shared with others who’ve “been there, done that”…

    I feel Begdahl deserves a legitimate trial if the facts so indicate, but for those who’ve NOT “been there, done that”, like Krauthammer and all the others, STFU.

    BTW: about those black flags we see, how many lives were lost in Viet Nam, searching for MIAs and POWs? Even our search for bodies as “proof” and “comfort for the families” cost many millions, if not billions of dollars, to put a “price tag” on said policy of “leave no one behind”.

    I too just want to go home, sometimes so badly I find myself moving without volition in a random direction the want is so bad.
    The enemy’s true evil was shown by not stopping his pain.

    The guy is an enlistee and not a draftee. What ever his motive for leaving his post, let the proper authorities discover the reason and determine his punishment if necessary.

    What I fail to even begin to understand (and yes, I do have an honorable discharge from the US Military, even though I did not go overseas to a war) is how all of these ultra conservatives both here and in Congress can claim to be so very patriotic, and then have absolutely no faith whatever in our military! Why would our military go to all the trouble to seek to get this guy back from our supposed enemies, when they knew he was a deserter? Would it not have been so very much easier to have let him rot and die among the Taliban?

    Or, could they (the ultra conservatives) not have a deeper motive? Such as castigating our current president for first not going after him, and now for actually getting him back? Such political hypocrisy passes all understanding!!
