… Yes , A Court – Martial of Bowe Bergdahl is necessary [#prosecution]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 20th,2016

.. more than anything else , it matters for the reputation of the soldier …. .. his actions have been called into question . A legal investigation [a JAGmen investigation] has been carried out , and has uncovered evidence of misconduct on the behalf of the soldier . No matter what , until this matter is completely and fully aired , his personal reputation is now under a cloud … .. [h/t — NYSlimes.com].. .. [link] to the Slimes ‘ editorial .. .. when a soldier has allegedly done what Pvt. Bergdahl has done , that soldier would be advised to seek out the forum of a court – martial . Whether one is innocent , or is guilty , the allegations will receive a full public airing . Only in that can Pvt. Bergdahl have a civil chance to move on with his life . yes , his freedom is at risk [the risk of conviction and imprisonment] , but he needs to do it …

… now Bowe Bergdahl faces justice [#desertion][#misconduct before the enemy]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 4th,2016

.. just recently , the US Army stood up where it was needed . They remembered that His Lordship will soon be gone , but the ” good order and discipline ” of the ranks is always needed . So , Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl will indeed face justice …

.. he is facing only two counts . One is desertion in a time of war . The other count is misconduct before the enemy . The first count is serious enough , because Bergdahl can face up to 5 years in prison . The other count is even more serious , yet , especially the penalty . If Bergdahl is found guilty of this one , then he can face up to and including life without the possibility of parole in prison …

.. [link] to the blog post …

.. a guilty verdict on either count would cause several more penalities [likekly] for Bergdahl . One is forfeiture of pay . That is a definite one . The other is a bad conduct discharge from the Army . Given his actions , that one would be a given …

… Desertion is a Big Deal [#Amen , Ralph Peters]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 3rd,2014

.. thank you , Lt. Colonel Peters , for your statement , and for your service …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the comments ..

.. desertion , especially in a time of war , is a very big deal . It should be punished , and done so severely . If need be , it should be done so by the death penalty …

.. Pvt. Bergdahl ‘ s butt should be in the brig . He should not , repeat , not be on desk duty …

… 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 ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [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 .

… 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 …. ” …

… It will be Interesting to See What happens with the Army JAG Corps …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 17th,2014

.. why , may you ask ? ..

.. I suspect and believe that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter , at the very least . There is evidently an intelligence file on Bergdahl in the possession of the Government , likely the D.O.D. . Hopefully , Army JAG will be able to get its hands on it , or major parts of it …

.. there are plenty of people involved in the case . Now that the monkeyshines are coming out into the open , it is clear that higher – ups suspected that Bergdahl was a deserter , possibily even a collaborator , or even a traitor . It needs an investigation , It cries out for a thorough invesgitation . Hopefully , it will get one ..

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the news piece …

.. Army JAG will have to conduct a JAGmen , or preliminary investigation on the actions and the conduct of Sergeant Bergdahl . I believe that higher – ups in the Pentagon will do so , if only to give the situation a thorough airing . That would be a good idea , as long as it is complete and fair …

.. With the ObamaCraps , I wonder . I think that those idiots could try to screw around with the investigation , or even to put undue command influence on it . Having it done by civilians is never a good idea . It being done by anyone in uniform is a criminal offense . Hopefully , for all involved , Sgt. Bergdahl will get a chance to get his case investigated , thoroughly and fairly . No monkeyshines or interferenece from above . Given the circumstances , it would be best . The question is , will it happen ??

… 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 ..
