DEAR EDITOR:

This veteran knows full well the meaning of desertion and the consequences for desertion. Sgt. Bergdahl deserted his unit while they were at war with enemy terrorists. He is no hero! He needs to be tried and upon being found guilty, executed! Of course that will not happen because Commander-in-Thief (sic) Obama has already pardoned him by declaring that Bergdahl served honorably and giving him a photo-op at the White House.

It is an absolute outrage that our president negotiated with terrorists and swapped five terrorist prisoners, who are committed to killing Americans, for an Army deserter who has embraced our enemies and embraced Islam.

Listen up, members of Congress! Many Americans, especially those of us who served in the military, are mad as hell, and we want you to do your duty as our elected representatives. Obama MUST be impeached. As president and commander-in-thief, he has negotiated with terrorists, failed to advise Congress of the proposed prisoner exchange and violated his oath of office by putting Americans at risk, in releasing five committed Islamic jihadists who are totally committed to killing Americans!

Bergdahl is the younger version of the fake war hero John Kerry. Bergdahl should definitely consider working for the democrat party, since he is exactly the type of person they seek to run for public office.

No military service Foley, have you finally learned the difference between a sergeant and a sergeant major?

Oh please, you have got to be kidding. You voted twice for George W. Bush who used his fathers influence to get into a Texas champagne unit in Viet Nam. After flight training he promptly went AWOL with the only record of his military service being a trip to the dentist at Ft. Rucker. This same George W. Bush released 500 prisoners from Guantanamo with 30% of them returning to fight Americans. The army will deal with Bergdahl if he is ever fit to stand court martial. There is apparently evidence that he was mentally ill when he was booted from the Coast Guard and should never have been in the Army to begin with. What a bunch of hypocrites.

As far as reactionaries like Beyea are concerned, getting tried and convicted on Fox News is justice enough. Forget the investigation and due process and proceed directly to firing squad.

I'll have a lot more on this Friday.

Don't worry Foley, you are not significant enough on the face of this earth to be noticed by Fox News.

Rising up to defend the indefensible again, huh, Foley?

You forgot to read what the man wrote before you started on your "I love Obama" rant. Mr. Beyea said, "tried and, upon being found guilty, executed." So where do you get this rot about Fox? Fox has nothing to do with this.

I have some advice for you on this one. Somewhere around 70 to 80 percent of the veterans, like Mr. Beyea, in this country (you know what a veteran is, right? One who chose to serve.) see Bergdahl for what he is. Since you are a "hide under bed until the trouble is over' pseudo-journalist, you would be well-advised to leave this one alone.

Of course, I know you are not intelligent enough to do that.

The gutless wonders in our government are not going to impeach Obama . He has surrounded himself with people who are as lawless as he is, so he will have free-rein for the rest of his time in office. I just hope that the idiots who voted for him have learned something from this sorry episode in our country's history. (and by the way, Foley, please don't bother to write something nasty in response)

As a veteran myself, I would be upset if a man was left behind.

"an Army deserter who has embraced our enemies and embraced Islam."

So, a person has a right to religious freedom as long as it is a religion of which you approve? Is that how it works?

first iof all, I doubt you are a veteran. But that is beside the point. Your characterization of what the writer is saying is the mark of stupidity.

That Bergdahl embraces Islam is minor when compared to the fact the he is a deserter and colkaborator with our enemy, the Taliban.

Don't use this space to show off how out of touch and unrealisitc you are.

I am a veteran too. You call the ideology of America' greatest enemy a religion and espouse support for traitors? While I am sure I and all veterans support no man left behind, I find your accusation of religious intolerance to be as disgusting as most liberal strawmen arguments are.

Islam is a religion. Your bigotry is showing.

It has yet to be proven that the soldier in question is a traitor.

We don't pick and choose which soldiers that we leave behind. WE LEAVE NO MEN BEHIND.

McCain made an anti-American propaganda confession in Hanoi. Why not try him as a traitor?

"That Bergdahl embraces Islam is minor when compared to the fact the he is a deserter and colkaborator with our enemy, the Taliban."

Then why does the OP mention Islam if it isn't a religious slur? We need less of those kind of attacks and more dealing with issues that we can do something about. Religion is almost an immutable characteristic.

Again, Bergdahl has yet to be convicted of any crime.

The only realistic way to stop the violence seems to be to negotiate. The English and Irish did it. There is little chance that we can wipe out all Taliban/al Qaeda and whoever else might (and already has) spawn(ed) out of those organizations. They all have relatives, like nephews and sons, who will take up the fight for their religion, just as you would fight for yours.

It is strange that we humans kill each other over what happens after we die. It's ironic and unnecessary.

Until peace is achieved, people will be hurt or killed.

You either wipe out every last one of them or you ultimately negotiate for peace. Doesn't seem like there's a great choice, but one is clearly preferable to the other. YMMV
