Bowe Bergdahl, For Whom Obama "Traded" Five Terrorists, To Be Charged With Desertion

Thank you for "trading" terrorists to get this fine American boy back, Mr. President.

I put "trading" in quotes because Obama just wants excuses to release terrorists -- the "trade" here is a pretext to do what he already wished to do.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban for five years after leaving his remote post in Afghanistan, has been charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, according to a source familiar with the case.

My Favorite Move... of the leftwing press is its constant use of the Passive Voice to get across its own beliefs and desires without admitting whose beliefs and desires these are.

For example, two weeks ago I saw the headline: Tom Cotton Finds Himself on Defensive After Iran Letter. Finds himself on defensive from whom? well, from the Press, naturally, but they don't want to admit they themselves are driving this story and therefore the subject of this story, so they write the headline to obscure just who it is that Cotton finds himself on the defensive against.

They do this with "Raises Questions" all the time, too. Scott Walker Campaign Raises Questions About Transparency is a made-up headline along these lines.

Anyway, the NYT wants you to know that a vague mass of people, who they will not name, does not have much "appetite" for seeing Bergdahl serve time in jail.
