Allen West “Bergdahl and Cpl Lorance: Here is what disgusts me”

What I just discovered about Bowe Bergdahl’s whereabouts highlights the double standard of the left.

Bergdahl Lorrance

As Written By Allen B. West:

If there’s something I adore about the misguided children of the progressive socialist left, it’s their hypocrisy. First of all, they haven’t learned I just don’t give a doggone about their insidious personal attacks — such as referring to me as a war criminal. Yet, the frontrunner for the Democrat Party presidential nomination abandoned Americans to die and then lied about it. As a matter of fact, the person currently occupying the White House did the same, and to my dear intellectually and morally challenged leftist detractors, how would you characterize that?

I suppose taking an action to scare a fella into giving information (as I did) is so despicable, but leaving Americans to die during a 13-hour firefight is just fine by y’all? Now, that’s what I call sick.

And what’s even sicker is how a young Army Lieutenant sits in jail for killing the enemy, while an Army Sergeant who deserted his duty post in a combat zone walks around free.

Yesterday I was wondering, where IS Bowe Bergdahl? I mean c’mon, give me a break, it took no time for the Army to detain, charge, convict and imprison Army 1LT Clint Lorance. So why is it taking so freaking long to bring justice against a well-known deserter? It’s simple, because the hypocrisy that the progressive socialist left embraces actually celebrates Bergdahl. Remember it was Susan Rice who came out and spoke for the Obama administration praising Bergdahl as someone who had served with honor and distinction. Yes, you fight or scare the enemy and you’re reviled by the left. But, if you run away from the enemy and put others’ lives in danger, you’re beloved — actually, you’re a victim.

I scoured the internet for the most recent stories about Bowe Bergdahl and it appeared the most recent one was this from back in March.

As reported by Politico, “Bowe Bergdahl’s defense has requested to interview Donald Trump.


Franklin D. Rosenblatt, who is representing Bergdahl, sent a letter to the billionaire Saturday requesting to interview Trump over derogatory public comments he has made about the Army soldier, according to a document obtained by POLITICO.

“I request to interview you as soon as possible about your comments about Sergeant Bergdahl during frequent appearances in front of large audiences in advance of his court-martial,” said the letter, which was obtained Saturday. “Based on your personal knowledge of matters that are relevant to Sergeant Bergdahl’s right to a fair trial this interview will help us determine whether to seek a deposition order under Rule of Court-Martial 702 or your personal appearance as a witness at an Article 39(a) session of the court-martial.”

In January, one of Bergdahl’s lawyers told CNN that Trump’s disparaging comments had “irreparably compromised” Bergdahl’s right for a fair trial.

His pattern of doing so, with the full glare of public attention before mass audiences around the country, materially threatens SGT Bergdahl’s right to fair consideration by the convening authority as well as in a court-martial,” defense lawyer Eugene Fidell said.

Berghdal is being charged with desertion and endangering fellow soldiers in a military court. In 2009 the sergeant left his military post in Afghanistan and was held prisoner from 2009 to 2014 after being captured by Taliban-linked militants. He was returned to the U.S. through a prisoner swap in June 2014.”

Amazingly enough we now have extended Bergdahl’s victimization into the current presidential political arena. Instead of being concerned about the men who lost their lives in the search and rescue operations for Bergdahl, every stall action is being taken to prolong what should have……
