Bergdahl Returned to Active Duty, Former Platoon Mate Reacts: ‘I guess honor and integrity doesn’t matter much anymore’

Just weeks after we were told presumed deserter Bowe Bergdahl was near death and thus had to be released for five Taliban monsters, it’s now reported he’s resuming his Army career. What a miracle recovery.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has completed the final phase of his reintegration at an Army hospital in Texas and will return to “regular duty,” the Army confirmed Monday.

Bergdahl was released from Taliban captivity May 31 in a controversial trade for five Taliban commanders held at the U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. They were released to the government of Qatar, where they must stay for a year.

Bergdahl was held captive by the Taliban for nearly five years after he went missing from his post in Afghanistan in 2009. As part of the reintegration process Bergdahl, 28, received therapy and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio, and will be assigned to the same base, Fort Sam Houston.

“He will now return to regular duty within the command where he can contribute to the mission,” an Army statement said. “The Army investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the disappearance and capture of Bergdahl is still ongoing.”

Bergdahl’s new assignment will be “commensurate” with his rank, said Don Manuszewski, a spokesman for the Army in San Antonio. Bergdahl was promoted while in captivity.

He will be assigned administrative duties at the headquarters of U.S. Army North at Fort Sam Houston, the Army said.

Well, things are going to be a bit awkward in that office. Many question the wisdom of the move, including former platoon mate Cody Full:

You can really sense the enthusiasm. Despite Full and several others speaking out last month, the Army apparently has not time for their testimony:

Curious, that. Oh wait, the investiogation is still ongoing. Allegedly.

Especially in the White House.

    They have to return him to active duty. The regime doesn’t want it proven that he was a traitor or willingly deserted. it’s all about optics.

    Well, that worked out nice. Bregdahl goes back to a job and the investigation into what exactly he did while captured will drag on for years – or until Obama is out of office, which ever comes first.
