Bowe Bergdahl trashes US Army as he awaits sentence: ‘At least the Taliban were honest’

Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant who deserted his unit in Afghanistan, apparently has Stockholm Syndrome, as he praised his Taliban captors.

Bergdahl claims Taliban terrorists were more “honest” with him than the U.S. Army has been since they negotiated his release in 2009. Maybe the Army isn’t telling him anything because Bergdahl pleaded guilty to desertion and then spent five years as a Taliban prisoner. Just sayin’.

“At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat,’ ” Bergdahl told the Sunday Times.

“Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for life. We may as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs.” Huh?

Bergdahl, 31, has performed “administrative duties” for the past three years while awaiting his desertion trial. Basically, he’s upset that the U.S. Army is nice to his face, unlike his Taliban captors, who beat, starved, and tortured him for five years.

But Bergdahl says the Taliban is better because they’re more “honest” in their hatred of him and all Americans.

Meanwhile, Bergdahl did not seem grateful or saddened that six U.S. soldiers died looking for him after he deserted his post (Bergdahl’s unit was worried he had been captured and set out to rescue him). Several others were severely injured.

Bergdahl is expected to be sentenced on Monday after pleading guilty to “desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.”

Bergdahl, who faces life in prison, was freed in May 2014 as part of a controversial prisoner-exchange deal by the Obama administration where the United States released  five Taliban terrorists in exchange for Bergdahl.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, candidate Donald Trump slammed Barack Obama for negotiating with terrorists and releasing five hard-core Taliban soldiers in exchange for an American who willfully deserted his post, endangered his entire unit, and betrayed his country.
