Bergdahl Could Get $350G Tax-Free, If Cleared By Army

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could have a tax-free $350,000 dropped into his bank account if the current investigation into his disappearance from his base in Afghanistan was not desertion, and if he is deemed to have been a prisoner of war for the five years he was held by Islamic militants, Fox News has learned.

The 28-year-old soldier, for whom the U.S. traded five senior Taliban operatives held at Guantanamo Bay, was set to return to active duty Monday after spending six weeks in medical rehab at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio.

“Essentially he’ll be working a desk job,” Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren told reporters at the Pentagon Monday.

Why? Do we now reward deserters?

3:23 - the article clearly states that the investigation must find that his abduction was NOT a result of desertion.

3:35 If the investigation does find out he deserted, do we get the back the murderers that Obama traded him for? "The article clearly stated"? Yes and Obama clearly stated I could keep my insurance. Give me a break with your liberal BS.

Wouldn't you just love to give a smart salute to such a squared away professional?

So he's riding a desk and making coffee. Up two ranks w/o any additional training.

Will get evaluated by the same bunch who couldn't figure out their professional colleague Maj. Nadal was completely off his rocker.

How much you wanna bet he's in the gallery next to Moochie for next year's State of the Union?

In the words of Charlie Brown, "Good grief!"

So to get this Deserter back we traded first rate high danger level terrorist and now we have to pay him 350,000 dollars. This is getting tiring if founding fathers were here now they would start a revolution.
