Bowe Bergdahl

Not only is Reuters reporting that Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was set to return to regular active duty status as early as Monday, he’s been permitted to venture off base during his recovery treatment at an Army hospital in Texas.

Sounds like he is being fast-tracked back into the Army he deserted.

Having completed therapy and counseling after five years in captivity in Afghanistan, Bergdahl will reportedly work at the Army North headquarters at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio.

Army officials say it’s “part of his reintegration into Army life,” and that Bergdahl will even live in barracks with other personnel.

One can only assume those personnel will be hand-picked to go along with this charade and not cause trouble for the Obama Administration – who traded five of the most dangerous terrorists in the world to get Bergdahl back.

To make sure the story goes as outlined, two soldiers will be assigned “to assist” Bergdahl, and at some point he’ll meet with investigators who supposedly are investigating his walking away from his Afghanistan outpost in 2009.

My guess is that theses “investigators” will find some explanation other than desertion for Bergdahl walking away from his fellow soldiers, despite many of them today saying he is a traitor and should be court martial-ed. Some former members of his unit have publicly accused him of deserting his post.
