Beau Bergdahl Should Get Jail Time
Bergdahl Should Pay. A Special Forces commander who was in Afghanistan when Bergdahl went missing describes the effect his disappearance had on operations. The SF teams that he commanded were re-missioned to searching for Bergdahl instead of going after militants. Equipment was diverted, drones were reallocated, key missions were scrapped, and his men were sent into some of the most hostile areas of Afghanistan to conduct the search for the missing Soldier. The SF officer says Bergdahl is lucky - as he survived captivity and is back in the United States. However, "the soldiers who died looking for him never had the opportunity to return home".
