Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 07, 2014

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle said Friday that released POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was lucky he wasn't found by his fellow soldiers before the exchange. Otherwise, Guilfoyle said, Bergdahl may have been brought home "in a body bag." On Friday's broadcast of Outnumbered, she said, "He's pretty lucky that he was brought home the way he was because if those special forces had found him and encountered him and they were looking for him, he would have come home either in a body bag or come home and gone straight to jail."

Another show host, Geraldo Rivera, defended Bergdahl's release, arguing that the soldier's alleged desertion doesn't change the equation. "I don't care who Bergdahl is. We don't leave him behind," Rivera said.

Classy. Insinuating that the troops are outright murderers is a little much.

Welcome home Sargent Bergdahl, unfortunately you will always be considered a traitor by the folks on the right, unlike the right-wing's HERO William Calley who was responsible (and convicted) and later pardoned by Nixon for the "My Lai Massacre" of 500 innocent woman and children

Republicans want to choose who's American. Soldiers better hope the lobbyists fight for them if they're captured.

That's a terrible thing to say. Republicans have lost touch with their moral compass and choose unethical behavior.

Yeah, they'd have killed him and made him the next Pat Tillman. Sounds legit.

Another chicken hawk trashes troops. Real easy to fight from your recliner or from Alaska.

Funny but GOTP keeps denying they're racist but keep proving it.

They always have.

And the stringency of their purity test(s) is what's scary.

They'd throw their own mothers under the bus in a heart beat if they dared to question the slow march to an ever more insane right.

**** AND this was because what..the Special Forces were so GUNG HO to Murder and Pillage for CorpoRat America in their GREED Fueled Oil Wars and Wars of Aggression...and Bergdahl wasn't? Patriotism is a Red,White and Blue Rag they Jam Up your Ass that leaves you with a Lobotomy!

"He would have gone straight to jail".......Fox News would have deputized them.

"He would have come home in a body bag"......We at Fox would then interview those who killed him.

This is frustrating. This woman makes, what? A million dollars a year? More? I can be as stupid as she is. I want my money.

It will eventually be found that Bergdhal had psychiatric issues that were noted long before he left. He'll be discharged without punishment.

Read, through this thread, I do not watch Fox, or TV at all, thank you. But this guy IS lucky he didn't die at his comrade's hands. Treason is much easier to understand in a two way shooting gallery. This POS is a traitor, and he will go to prison, not for treason- desertion more than likely. Can not wait to see how long he lasts in Leavenworth if he isn't in PC, (protective custody). Likely he will be locked in a 8X10, 23 hours a day for 4 to 6 years.

It upsets me more that she thinks so little of the Military that she thinks US troops would not act professional and do as ordered putting aside any personal feeling they have for him. I believe the majority of Men and Woman serving would never put their personal feeling over their orders on any assignment, that is how the Military works. I am sure she or anyone in her close family has ever served.

other than a choice between palin and the IDIOT SIDEKICK biden...I'd be interested in reading what's apparently a wealth of pro palin comments from me.....my comments are usually aimed toward liberal bigots concerning palin.

and of course in this case, context is important.....I believe there was some discussion as to the validity of the DESERTER giving info to the taliban because people there said the taliban was more effective at killing while he was gone.....IRREGARDLESS....( hee hee ).....'you people' one day will give context a try here the same way you do every liberal bigot in media...,..,

The left rarely even comments on liberal bigots but go into convulsions of anger over comments from the right....well get used to it.....This fight hasn't gotten even close to begun.

again...context..OH WAIT....the party of jon stewart and colbert don't worry about context...

Kimberley will continue to say idiotic things long after Bowe B. Faces a court martial wherein he receives a general discharge at a reduced rank. In other words, one will be punished for their actions and another will find another subject about which to rant.

OK, I've figured it out...
Marine in Afghanistan goes nuts and shoots up a square of innocent Afghans.
Right wing defends him.
A Soldier in Afghanistan goes nuts and walks off of base hoping to find answers to his questions.
Right-wing calls him a traitor.
That about right?

"the people who would KNOW....people in his group....they say things..."

Which contradict the report which was divulged by Chelsea Manning. Swift Boat Liars said they knew things about John Kerry, those things were contradicted by his crew and by reports from the Navy. I'll hold judgement until a more thorough investigation is conducted but then I'm not really just interested in creating a scandal for Obama like you and the rest of the right is. It's what you do. It's shameful.

Who says that they weren't trying to capture or kill him? Isn't it possible that the reason those six servicemen died is because they were trying to capture or kill Bergdahl?

DOCNJO: "This POS is a traitor, and he will go to prison, not for treason- desertion more than likely." No, not for desertion, either, as he was not a deserter. He was AWOL.

"10% of all officer casulaties in Nam were due to fragging. I'll put you down as a fan."
=+=
"Only a complete idiot judges, so positively, when they don't even have 25% of the information. You qualify."

DOCNJO, since you don't know it, here's the definition of treason for you:
Offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one's country or of assisting its enemies in war. In the U.S., the framers of the Constitution defined treason narrowly -- as the levying of war against the U.S. or the giving of aid and comfort to its enemies -- in order to lessen the possibility that those in power might falsely or loosely charge their political opponents with treason.
