Pentagon Purges Thousands of High-Ranking Military but Reinstates Deserter Bowe Bergdahl

In the category of just plain bizarre, today the military purged thousands of high ranking military officials on the same day that they reinstated the accused Army Deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

As part of a Pentagon plan to reduce the number of U.S. Army soldiers from 520,000 to 450,000, thousands of high-ranking and active duty military personnel soldiers — many serving as commanding officers in Afghanistan — were given pink slips this week.

In a bizarre twist, one that displays the absolute lack of respect this government has for our military, it was announced today that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was recently returned from Taliban captivity after being accused of deserting the Army, will be returning to Active Duty.

In a statement, officials said Bergdahl had “completed the final phase of the reintegration process” and would “now return to regular duty” at Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio, the same base where he has been receiving medical treatment and counseling for the last six weeks.

From the L.A. Times: Bergdahl, who was promoted to sergeant during his time as a captive, will live in noncommissioned officer quarters and work with other soldiers “who are providing leadership and guidance,” according to Donald E. Manuszewski, a spokesman for U.S. Army North.

When off duty, Bergdahl will be free to leave the base unescorted and go where he wants, according to an Army official.

Military No Longer Ready to Face Modern Day Threats

Over the last year, the United States military has seen some of their top officials run out and their reediness lowered to levels not seen since before World War II. In a shocking admission that we covered late last year, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno revealed that the military has only two Army brigades that are actually combat-ready, and that the U.S. Army had to stop training for over six months last year because of budget cuts.

Commenting on the unusually large number of captains being forced into retirement, Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. John Campbell said: “In other times, they’d probably continue to stay in the Army. But these are not normal times.”

    Another good article. But you seem to have a certain amount of familiarity with the military and yet this article makes no mention of the fact that by rule the army is full of you know what on all most things positive or negative. The only thing there truthful about is what there legally obligated too

    Obama is purging those in military that won’t open fire on American civilians. He’s preparing to declare Martial Law, and only wants troops that will shoot innocent people.

      So full of crap. I’m active duty (17.5 years now) and have never seen this or know anyone that has. Just a bunch of internet rangers spreading b.s. on the internet. No one has asked us if we are willing to shoot civilians. Complete garbage.

    You guys are sounding like Fox News!!! It’s OK to reduce the Military Machinery and work towards peace. Those high-ranking soldiers can now go out and find McJobs in the civilian sector.

      And you sound like the kind of idiot who is going to destroy this country. Gotta love how the liberal jackasses hate the military so much that they are willing to ignore the fact that evil exists in this world. How about thanking them for your freedom.

    Now-Now … hold your-alls jabs! One day we read about the “militaization” of local police departments and the next day we read about upholding the Military Industrial Complex! Just sayin’! Regardless, Dem or Repub, we need to prepare for the unimaginable. Let’s all ‘be ready’!!! And Sniper – no Kool-Aid here … just mass quantities of Natty Boh and maybe some Dale’s Pale Ale when I get OT in my paycheck.

      Supposidly the Army did an investigation 5 years ago that said he deserted. Now you have a BGEN doing a new investigation. You know SECDEF and POTUS don’t want to look any more foolish about the way they handled this so I bet there is command preassure to let him of.

    Okay – now for the other possible scenario – those ousted military may decide that they just can’t stand it any more, take all their years of military training, call in all their chips, and become one hell of an opposition to theses kooks !!!
