The Army has finally announced the fate of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Gen. Robert B. Abrams has announced that Sgt. Bergdahl will face a court martial for desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
The United States government traded fiver terror suspects for Bergdahl in 2014. Bergdahl left his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was subsequently captured by enemy fighters.
Bergdahl’s defense attorney, Eugene R. Fidell, immediately condemned the decision saying that General Abrams “did not follow the advice of the preliminary hearing officer who heard the witnesses.”
The misbehavior before the enemy charge can potentially carry a death penalty, but that is rarely utilized.
The extremely popular and award winning podcast Serial is currently investigating the Bergdahl case on it’s weekly show.
