… I understand Pvt Bergdahl is under investigation …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 17th,2014

.. but , by a 2 – star general ?? ..

.. someone in Pvt Bergdahl ‘ s chain of command should be doing this , not a flag officer . Someone more like at a Colonel , Lt. Colonel , or Major should convene this inquiry …

.. then what ? ..

.. if I understand military proceedings right , it would then be turned over to Army JAG . Given the high – profile , Army JAG would assign their best and brightest to the case , especially if the c-of-c expects the possibility of charges . That is something that the officer in the command should bring forth , because it would also bring forward Pvt . Bergdahl ‘ s defense …

.. Whatever the young man has done , he deserves a defense . No , not a slipshod one . Given things , he should get the best possible defense …

.. [update] — now , Pvt Bergdahl has been released from his rehabilitation agenda . Now , he has been reassigned to desk duty . Wise move . He would probably get his ass kicked or worse if he were returned to his original MOS (combat infantryman) …

… Bowe Bergdahl has Some Explaining to Do [#his own actions]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 11th,2014

.. if the news reports are accurate , Bowe Bergdahl is likely going to be in some serious trouble when he comes home ..

.. [link] to the news reports ..

.. also , credit FoxNews ..

.. unless there is some legal provision keeping them secret , the intelligence reports will likely be able to be used by the government in an investigation . Maybe not as direct evidence , in an of itself , no . But it provides a trail for investigators to follow .

.. In some situations , there are legal protections , and for good reason . If the sources are sensitive enough , the government may not allow the intelligence to be able to be used in an investigation . The sources and or methods may well be that sensitive . This is not a safety inquiry , where part of the inquiry is blocked to encourage cooperation for future use by safety regulators . it is a criminal inquiry , where the accused is in some serious hot water .

… Bowe Bergdahl ‘ s conduct should be investigated …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,June 30th,2014

.. yes , he has been through a hellish experience .

.. however , he has a duty to his fellow soldiers and to our country . He needs to account for his actions …

.. before he is discharged from the Army , or he is possibly even promoted to a higher enlisted rank , he needs to be investigated . Given the news reports , a number of his actions have been called into question . What happened needs to be fleshed out …

.. for Mr. Bergdahl ‘ s future , as well as for his reputation , it needs to be done …

… As Much as I would like to ” cashier ” the Guy [#bowe bergdahl]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,June 22nd,2014

.. this gentleman is right ..

.. the man that I am talking about is , of course , retired Lt . Colonel Ollie North ..

.. Ollie is saying that the military justice system should be given a chance to work its will , without interference …

.. [h/t —Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the public statement …

.. I do not worry about our military professionals . They are the best . I am worried about the ObamaCraps sticking their noses in the processes , blantantly but subtlely . If that is done , Sgt. Bergdahl will not receive a fair investigation , and we as a country will not receive an accurate and fair accounting of the the events resulting in his being taken ” captive …. ” …

… There is the Possibility for Witness Tampering [#bergdahl]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 10th,2014

.. I do agree , there is some possibility for witness tampering in the Bergdahl case …

.. that presumes that the ObamaCraps have someone who is in the know on the inside of the investigation . That will not be easy . With this White House , they will have every incentive to try to meddle . They have already totally botched the handling of this case as it is . So , there is motive ..

.. however , I do believe in the professionalism of JAG Corps . Especially in the JAG HQ . That is an honor posting . No , you are not generally going to find any ” Harmon Rabb ” types in the military services . That kind of colourful personality just would not be tolerated . A little bit of a personality , well , yes …

.. [h/t — NiceDeb]..
.. [link] to the show segment …

.. in the military services , there are offenses that in a civilian would be moral offenses . In the military [under the U.C.M.J. , or Uniform Code of Military Justice] these offenses would be considered crimes , punishable by many different types of punishment , including dismissal from the service , as well as confinement [jail] , and others ….

.. in this case , the one that Dr. Krauthammer is worried about would be considered ” Unlawful Command Influence . ” If it is a civilian that does it , then the military judge has to consider whether the rights of the accused have been violated . If it is someone in uniform , especially an officer , then , it is a crime , and the same judgement would have to be made .

..Even if Bergdahl is guilty as sin , if his rights are violated by anyone , then he could well be set free as a result . What might have been done would have been considered to be prosecutorial misconduct . Then , double jeopardy atttaches , Bye – bye case ..
