We’ll keep you updated…
Shaffer was on the Bill O’Reilly show. He said Bergdahl’s attorney has been informed Bergdahl is being charged with desertion, that the attorney has received the charges. Bill O’Reilly said the White House has had this information, that the charges have been ready for awhile, but the White House has been delaying it under the auspices of Ben Rhodes, Assistant National Security Advisor. You may remember Ben Rhodes who featured prominently in the construction of the Benghazi talking points.
And that’s why the leak, their hand just got forced. Here’s the semi-formal announcement.
(Reuters) – U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who disappeared from his base in Afghanistan in 2009 but was released last year in a prisoner swap with the Taliban, will be charged with desertion, according to NBC.
The television network, citing senior defense officials, said the charges could come within a week.
