INJUSTICE: Bergdahl back to active duty at Fort Sam Houston; Tahmooressi remains in Mexican jail

Well this is utter BS! Whatever it takes for this administration to undermine and diminish the morale of our military men and women, they will...
Townhall: Yes, you read that headline correctly. Bowe Bergdahl, the Army Sgt. accused by his fellow platoon members of desertion and possible collaboration with the Taliban against the United States, is headed back to active duty. More from CNN:
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has finished undergoing medical care and counseling at an Army hospital in San Antonio and could return to an Army unit on a Texas post as early as Monday, a defense official tells CNN.

Bergdahl was held captive by militants for five years before he was released in May in exchange for five senior Taliban members held by the U.S. military. He has always maintained his active duty status. He cannot retire from the service or be discharged until the investigation concerning his disappearance and captivity in Afghanistan is complete.

For about three weeks, Bergdahl has been an outpatient at the San Antonio hospital, and military officials have interviewed him about his time in captivity.

Bergdahl is set to take a job at Fort Sam Houston, the Army post in San Antonio, according to an Army statement Monday. He will return to "regular duty within the command where he can contribute to the mission," the statement said.
At this point, not a single soldier from Bergdahl's platoon has come forward to defend him or to justify his disappearance. Army Spc. Cody Full, who testified in front of Congress last month about Berghdahl's disappearance, is not impressed.
Only in a PC-Obama world is a deserter not held accountable, but rewarded, while an honorable soldier remains imprisoned in Mexico...

FoxNews: The U.S. Marine who has spent months in a Mexican jail on guns charges said on “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” Monday that his first hearing in the case did not go as he had expected, as a language barrier prevented him from speaking directly to the judge.

A Mexican federal judge sent Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi back to prison Wednesday after he made his first official courtroom appearance since being locked up more than three months ago for accidentally crossing the border with guns in his pickup truck. Tahmooressi told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren in a phone interview he had hoped to look the judge in the eyes when he gave his testimony, but instead was forced to go through a translator.
