Bergdahl Hometown Cancels Celebration

You could say the celebrants have deserted.

The hometown of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has canceled a rally planned for later this month celebrating his release from five years of Taliban captivity, a municipal official told Reuters on Wednesday, amid allegations that he was a deserter.

Heather Dawson, the city administrator of Hailey, Idaho, said town officials called off the June 28 event at the request of organizers because the town “will be unable to safely manage the number of people expected.”

Yeah, sure. That’s believable. Unless it’s angry former military looking for a piece of him do they really expect some massive outpouring?
