The question currently being asked is: Was Bergdahl, a suspected deserter, worthy of trading for five top Taliban terrorists? The White House says that whether or not he was a deserter is not what matters. What matters is that the U.S. never leaves one of its soldiers on the battlefield.
Talk show host Joe Scarborough disagrees emphatically:
“Yes, damn straight it matters that he was a deserter instead of a war hero. And yes, damn straight it matters that maybe six Americans have already died because he wanted to roam the fields of Pakistan. Damn straight that you leave him there if it means more Americans are going to get killed, and more daughters and sons are going to grow up without their moms and dads.”
