All good things come to those who wait! And come October 23rd Army traitor Bowe Bergdahl will be sentenced for desertion and endangering fellow soldiers, and misbehavior before the enemy. The 31-year-old defector could face up to five years in prison for the desertion charge and a life sentence for misbehavior.

Bergdahl decided a while back to let a judge rather than a military jury renders a verdict, which is perhaps the only way of avoiding a life sentence.

The incident took place in 2009 after Bergdahl deserted his post and simply took off and was captured by the Taliban and held as a prisoner until 2014 when the Obama Administration negotiated a questionable deal through a prisoner swap trade which included 5-high value Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for traitor Bergdahl.

When Bergdahl was finally released back to the United States, the Obama Administration attempted to portray Bergdahl as a sympathetic character, even going as far as having Susan Rice attempting to do damage control telling CNN in an interview that Bergdahl served the United States with "honor and distinction."

A far cry from the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump who referenced Bergdahl “a dirty rotten traitor” for leaving his post and endangering the lives of others, and that he should “face the death penalty.” Five soldiers died while looking for Bergdahl.

The AP also reported:
“Bergdahl was a 23-year-old private first class in June 2009 when, after five months in Afghanistan, he disappeared from his remote infantry post near the Pakistan border, triggering a massive search operation. […]”

“The decision by the 31-year-old Idaho native leaves open whether he will return to captivity for years — this time in a U.S. prison — or receive a lesser sentence that reflects the time the Taliban held him under brutal conditions. He says he had been caged, kept in darkness, beaten and chained to a bed. […]”

“Sentencing will start on Oct. 23, according to the individuals with knowledge of the case. They weren’t authorized to discuss the case and demanded anonymity. During sentencing, U.S. troops who were seriously wounded searching for Bergdahl in Afghanistan are expected to testify, the individuals said.”
