Bergdahl investigation begins

It's a miracle!  Remember when Obama, Hagel and Rice said that Bergdahl's health was in "imminent danger" so it became urgent to get him home to the US - hence that trade with 5 GITMO terrorists?

Well, it seems as if Bergdahl has made such  a miraculous recovery, that the US Army has now announced an 'investigation' can now begin.

From the DoD:

Statement by U.S. Army on Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Investigation

The Army has initiated its investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the disappearance and capture of Sgt. Bowe R. Bergdahl from Combat Outpost Mest-Lalak in Paktika Province, Afghanistan on or about June 30, 2009. The Army has appointed as the investigating officer Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl, an Army officer with Afghanistan combat experience.

The primary function of this investigation, as in any other investigation, is to ascertain facts and report them to the appointing authority. These types of investigations are not uncommon and serve to establish the facts on the ground following an incident. The investigating officer will have access to previously gathered documentary evidence, including the 2009 investigation.

The Army's top priority remains Sgt. Bergdahl's health and reintegration. We ask that everyone respect the time and privacy necessary to accomplish the objectives of the last phase of reintegration. The investigating officer will not interview Sgt. Bergdahl until the reintegration team clears such interaction, so no timeline for completion of the investigation has been set.

For more information, please contact Lt. Col. Alayne Conway at 703 614-1742, or by email at

Pardon my cynicism and all, but what struck me is this:  The Army's top priority remains Sgt. Bergdahl's health and reintegration

Really?  As my long-time readers know, I am not IN any Military and am NOT a Veteran, but after watching Obama's dog and pony show lauding the heroism of Bergdahl, I am not confident that justice will be served...  Court Martial?  Not holding my breath.

As always, the guys who have 'been there, done that'  weigh in on the latest in the Bergdahl disgrace.
This Aint't Hell has a post up, as as always, the commenters add to the debate that the Obama administration (and the Military leadership?) would rather we didn't have.  GO read..

MG Kenneth R. Dahl begins investigation of Bergdahl matter

Good luck with the spin, MR Obama.  We'll be paying attention.
