This is a gross oversimplification of the Bergdahl episode.

Hey Rabbit.  Good to see you again.

I take your point about this being a gross oversimplification of the Bergdahl episode.  The US hasn't executed a soldier for desertion since Eddie Slovik  That doesn't mean that desertion at a time of war is not as an egregious offense as it ever was.  Today's standard of 'punishment' will probably reward him with a book deal and a Netflix movie followed by his run for Congress!  (Oliver Stone will make it all seem that his actions were the fault of somebody else and were a justified political statement against the war, just like the rewrite of Chelsea Manning's narrative),  It is far more complex than it used to be.  Cry

The guy gets killed and Berghdal gets paid... Berghdal is worse than the North Korean that tried to defect as Berghdal caused his fellow soldiers become wounded and killed. Obama let terrorists go in exchange for Berghdal and that may end up causing more Americans to die... I hate those traitors.

Trump did it too. It's the 2017 version of "But Bush".

"Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on," a campaign press release said.

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Friday closed the nation’s borders to refugees from around the world, ordering that families fleeing the slaughter in Syria be indefinitely blocked from entering the United States, and temporarily suspending immigration from several predominantly Muslim countries.
In an executive order that he said was part of an extreme vetting plan to keep out “radical Islamic terrorists,” Mr. Trump also established a religious test for refugees from Muslim nations: He ordered that Christians and others from minority religions be granted priority over Muslims.
Limey:
America's greatest ally suffered another terrorist attack Saturday night at the London Bridge. Seven people are dead and dozens injured after being stabbed or run over at 50 miles an hour.
President Trump took this as an opportunity to vent his spleen via Twitter, railing against gun control, pushing his judicially-blocked travel ban and, most oddly, attacking the Mayor of London.

Donald said this:
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!

Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That's because they used knives and a truck!

One reason we like trump:
Thursday was just a typical day on the campaign trail for Donald Trump. He won the endorsement of a major police union, saw several polls suggest Republican voters supported his stance on Muslims and endured another barrage of withering criticism.

Limey, your guy:

Sir Peter Westmacott, British ambassador to the US, broke with diplomatic protocol to take the Republican candidate to task over claims that Muslims have made some parts of London into no-go areas.

Let more in Limey:
A man has reportedly been shot in the head after he was caught in the crossfire between police and suspected terrorists amid the horrific attacks in London.
The man was shot after suspects smashed their way into a Borough Market pub and attacked customers with knives, The Sun reports.
Police then reportedly opened fire.
A witness, who claimed to be inside the pub at the time, told The Sun the men were smashing windows.
“I was in the Wheatsheaf pub,” the witness said.
“The doors were locked by the bar staff.
“Three men with big hunting knives were outside.
