Bergdahl: The Wanderer

UPDATE:   Editorial in NYT urges resisting urge to "demonize" Bergdahl.  And David Brooks supports Obama on the move.   "It doesn’t matter if Bergdahl had deserted his post or not. It doesn’t matter if he is a confused young man who said insulting and shameful things about his country and his Army. The debt we owe to fellow Americans is not based on individual merit. It is based on citizenship, and loyalty to the national community we all share."

NYT with report on military probe of Bergdahl--which found he had history of wandering off post, for fun or to see how far he'd get...raising questions about "desertion" meme.  May have been snatched while fooling around...
The issue is murky, the report said, in light of Sergeant Bergdahl’s previous episodes of walking off. The report cites accounts from his unit mates that in their predeployment exercise at the Army’s National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif., he sneaked or crawled off a designated course or range either to see how far he could go or to see a sunrise or sunset.
