Well, the Army has decided to charge Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl with desertion. While some applaud this move, one has to wonder just what it means, given that the Obama administration has “had its way” throughout this fiasco (as well as in many other areas). Certainly the President doesn’t want his Islamosympathizer buddy to spend the rest of his life in the stockade…
The U.S. Army Forces Command has thoroughly reviewed the Army investigation surrounding Sgt. Robert Bowdrie (“Bowe”) Bergdahl’s 2009 disappearance in Afghanistan and formally charged Sgt. Bergdahl under the U.S. Armed Forces’ Uniform Code of Military Justice on March 25, 2015, with “Desertion with Intent to Shirk Important or Hazardous Duty” and “Misbehavior Before The Enemy by Endangering the Safety of a Command, Unit or Place,” and has referred the case to an Article 32 preliminary hearing.
Sgt. Bergdahl is charged under the Uniform Code of Military Justice with one count of Article 85, “Desertion with Intent to Shirk Important or Hazardous Duty,” and one count of Article 99, “Misbehavior Before The Enemy by Endangering the Safety of a Command, Unit or Place.” Army Sgt. Bergdahl disappeared June 30, 2009, from Combat Outpost Mest-Lalak in Paktika Province, Afghanistan, and was subsequently captured.

Interestingly, the “Misbehavior Before The Enemy by Endangering the Safety of a Command, Unit or Place” charge is potentially much worse for Bergdahl, inasmuch as it could result in a life sentence.
Members of Bergdahl’s unit have openly stated that they believe the Bergdahl is a deserter, but they have withheld their judgment as to whether or not he is a traitor. Still, some wonder why they were having their trucks targeted directly with IEDs following Bergdahl’s desertion.
The Bergdahl story was one that Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings was working on when he was mysteriously killed.

So is the Army simply doing its job, or is there some subterfuge afoot? Will Bergdahl face a court martial, or are the charges – and the trial, if he ultimately faces one – a distraction of some sort?
Quite often we have seen instances of “difficulty” for the White House that were merely diverting our attention from some far more dastardly design of Obama and his cabinet.
Like the unfortunate crash of that Germanwings plane on Tuesday that has taken over the news cycle, perhaps. Seems MarketWatch is reporting that one of the Americans believed to have been killed in the crash was a Yvonne Selke from Nokesville, an employee of Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. in Washington who was working with the Pentagon’s satellite-mapping office, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
Booz Allen Hamilton is of course the oufit wherein Edward Snowden picked up his wealth of NSA domestic and international surveillance information, and where other whistleblowers connected to the MH-117 Ukrainian plane crash, and the Booz Allen Hamilton Swiss Bank-terrorist finance connection once worked.
Now that it has been determined that co-pilot Andreas Lubitz likely downed the aircraft intentionally, focus will go to his motive. Was he a Muslim? A closeted Islamist sympathizer? Was he unbalanced?
It wouldn’t be the first time certain “interests” had used psyop methods to get some zealot or borderline nut to commit a heinous crime…
Or is this all coincidence? We shall see… Or not.
