With the investigation stalled into the circumstances around how former Taliban captive Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl left his Afghanistan post on the night of June, 30, 2009, one conservative pundit says the probe is “shaping up to be a whitewash.”
And it’s all designed to protect President Obama, author and journalist Paul Sperry said in a New York Post article published Saturday.
Bergdahl’s release from captivity in an orchestrated swap for five Taliban commanders at Guantanamo Bay began to blow up in the president’s face almost from the moment he announced it from the Rose Garden, flanked by the deserter’s parents.
Many found it offensive, and perhaps telling, that Bergdahl’s father was sporting a Taliban-like beard at the time.

Obama came under almost-immediate fire from both parties in Congress, and even as National Security Adviser Susan Rice was telling Americans that Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction,” his platoon mates were calling him a deserter.
Sperry, author of “Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington,” wrote in the Post piece that a senior Army official told him court-martialing Bergdahl would “make the president look bad,” adding that it’s more likely he will be released from military service with a less-than-honorable discharge.
Anything more stringent would be an embarrassment for Obama, Sperry said.
Bergdahl returned to regular duties in early July, but he was not interviewed until last month.
The investigation is led by U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, who asked for an extension to an Aug. 15 deadline to submit his findings, making it likely that nothing will happen until after the November election, according to the Post.
Dahl is under fire for questioning Bergdahl himself, with critics saying he does not have the expertise to conduct a proper interrogation.
The Post laid out what it called “overwhelming” evidence against the soldier, but with so much riding on Obama’s image, don’t be surprised if Bergdahl gets off with little more than a slap on the wrist — post-election.
