    Never happen. His CIC will pardon any verdict/sentence handed down.

    It's odd how the military leaders that have reviewed facts and interviewed witnesses have all said no court martial, no jail time...and then we get this.

    I have two theories....either Abrams is setting up a reverse kangaroo court, so he can let the guy go while still claiming he did everything by the book, to keep the military quiet; or Abrams is sick of the coverup, and going down swinging, daring Obama to retire him, and showing America that not all high level officers are left wing political animals.

    .

    His attorney is claiming that he won't get a fair courts-martial due to all the publicity.

    Imagine that, since his attorney is the one blowing smoke up everybody's arses.

    A general court martial is rare but even then the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty. At this point he is only accused of wrongdoing. If the prosecutor does his job correctly they will secure a conviction. If you want to see a good movie depicting a kangaroo court watch the classic movie Paths of Glory staring Kurt Douglas.

    This poor misunderstand sensitive young man needs to have the best defense that money can buy so that he is not unjustly vilified or convicted for doing what any red blooded patriotic soldier would do... ahh heck, I can go on with this charade.... take the SummaBeotch out and stand him against a wall where he belongs. :mad:

    Great flick. Pretty realistic view of the French military command and political intrigue of the time, according to what I have read.

    Well I guess the right to "due process" ranks a lot lower on some folks ladder than the right to "keep and bare arms"

    Yes much more of a military political intrigue flick, and good example of what an actual kangaroo court looks like, than a war film.
    BTW grew up in Ogden UT.

    Nobody is saying don't have a trial! The dude is guilty and going down! When found guilty take him out to the nearest tree and hang him!

    Interesting how bloodthirsty some of us are.
    What's the trigger?
    He's from a little hick town, got overwhelmed by whatever it was and thought he did the right thing in some sort of whistle blowing action.
    He spend 5 years under the most atrocious circumstances suffering constant physical and emotional abuse.
    He tried to escape at least once and got tortured for it.
    America doesn't leave anybody behind, not even the black sheep.
    He's had enough. His life is already messed up enough.
    Let him be.
    I find some of your reactions pretty disgusting.
    And that from the same people who storm the barricades when a known terrorist get turned into red dust but he happens to have a U.S. Passport and hasn't been extended 'his rights'
    Bergdahl isn't a threat.

    Swaga, obviously you hate the USA. Please keep such thoughts to yourself. Real Americans demand revenge and death.
