BERGDAHL IS BACK: The Deserter Is Back On US Soil in San Antonio

Maybe after they check him out for a few days they will expedite his trial and if he’s found guilty they’ll make him share a cell with Bradley Manning for a few months prior to his execution. According to the Daily Mail:

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl landed on American soil in the early hours of Friday morning after more than five years in captivity spent with the Taliban.

The deeply controversial POW landed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio after 1am local time and was taken to nearby Brooke Army Medical Center. The Idaho native is expected to be reunited there with his family.

No media were allowed to witness the former prisoner’s return.

He is not scheduled to make any public appearances ahead of what is being referred to as Phase 3 of his reintegration process.

‘Our first priority is making sure that Sgt. Bergdahl continues to get the care and support he needs,’ said Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby on Thursday.

The spokesman said Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ‘is confident that the Army will continue to ensure that Sgt. Bergdahl receives the care, time and space he needs to complete his recovery and reintegration.’

Bergdahl will now spend time with a special team which has been preparing for his return since the U.S. Army first knew that he had been taken captive. The team trained every six months for a week at a time.

‘It’s a very gradual, phased approach in trying to re-acclimate the person back to society, back to freedom,’ Marc Gonsalves told CBS News.
