Justice – Grinding Slow, Yet Grinding Fine

Today, the Army announced that it was charging Bowe Bergdahl with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.  If convicted, he faces life in prison, reduction in rank, and a dishonorable discharge.  At first, I was going to rail about how I feel about his guilt in these crimes and the punishment I believe he deserves, but that puts the spotlight right back on Bergdahl.  I was going to shout to the mountain tops about the role politics played in his release, but that also detracts from what should be remembered in all this.

This is what we should remember:

SSG Clayton Bowen
PFC Morris Walker
SSG Kurt Curtis
2LT Darryn Andrews
SSG Michael Murphrey
PFC Matthew Martinek

These are the six soldiers who died during the operations that were launched to search for Bergdahl.  Can I guarantee that they wouldn’t have been killed had he not walked away from his unit?  No, of course not.  But he did, and they were killed looking for him.

These are the people I want to hear about.  These are the men who deserve the spotlight in all this.  These are the soldiers who deserve our attention, not Bergdahl.

Let justice grind him beneath its wheels.  I wish him a fair trial and all the justice he can handle.  I also hope that he is forgotten, but these men never are.

    So…
    When are we getting those terrorists back?

    I mean if you buy something (or try to sell the American People a lie…)
    At least you get what you put out there back….

    Does ANYONE know where those terrorist leaders are today?
