Skip to comments.MILITARY COMMANDER TO DECIDED POTENTIAL BOWE BERGDAHL PUNISHMENT
Posted on 12/22/2014 4:27:30 PM PST by SeekAndFind
The Army has forwarded the results of its investigation of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl's disappearance to a four-star general who will decide if any disciplinary action is warranted.
The general could decide on a number of possible outcomes, ranging from no further action to a possible court martial for the soldier held by the Taliban for five years after he left his post eastern Afghanistan.
"After a thorough investigation and a comprehensive legal review, the investigation concerning Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been forwarded to a General Courts Martial Convening Authority, Gen. Mark Milley, commanding general of Forces Command," the Army said in a statement today.
"Gen. Milley will determine appropriate action -- which ranges from no further action to convening a court martial." The statement added that no further comments about the report and its findings would be made "while disciplinary decisions are pending before commanders."
U.S. Forces Command spokesperson Paul Boyce confirmed that Milley had received the report today.
"The commander will review carefully the Army's facts and findings to determine impartially any appropriate next steps and possible actions," Boyce said. "Given the need to thoroughly review the Army's comprehensive report, we can't speculate on the estimated timing of any possible next steps or actions."
Being Absent Without Leave (AWOL) and desertion are both violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and commanders can determine potential disciplinary outcomes that can include counseling, a reprimand, non-judicial punishment or a court martial.
Bergdahl could also face the possibility of losing out on some of the hundreds of thousands of dollars of back-pay he had earned during his captivity. Bergdahl was held by the Taliban for five years after he disappeared from his unit's outpost in eastern Afghanistan on June 30, 2009.

Is this before or after Obama purges the ranks....oh, wait...
Send the traitor back to the Taliban.
Promotion to E-9 or W-1, I imagine.
(yes, that is the actual headline)
He will probably get 30 days community service.
It was a typo and I simply copied and paste it.
Gen. Mark Milley: “Oh, $hit, why me?”
Oh BS. Our emperor president Jug Ears has already decided what will be done!
I think these 4 star generals are there to do Obama's bidding, so I think this is over and done with, or the general could face an IRS audit.
Life making big rocks into little ones sounds good to me. ;-)

And who is the Commander in Chief? <— THAT is the all important question.
Translation---0bama filtering info so he won't be embarrassed by the WH fiasco with Bergdahl's parents.
Hung, drawn, and quartered, the sentenced reduced to only drawing and quartering. We have to show a little compassion here.
