FORT BRAGG, N.C. — The Army general who ordered Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's court martial testified Wednesday that he wasn't swayed by negative comments from a powerful U.S. senator, saying that he takes his duty "very, very seriously."
Gen. Robert B. Abrams, the four-star head of U.S. Army Forces Command, found himself in the unusual position of defending his objectivity against a defense effort to remove him from the case. Abrams referred the case to a general court-martial rather than a lower-level tribunal in December, weeks after U.S. Sen. John McCain indicated there would be repercussions if Bergdahl weren't punished.
Wearing a short-sleeved white dress shirt and blue pants, Abrams asked a prosecutor curtly "Where do you want me?" as he strode toward the witness stand.
I hadn't heard anything about Bergdahl in awhile. Apparently the case against him continues. In spite of people who should know better running their mouths...
Rock on, General Abrams.
Fuck Bergdahl. I pray that he is found guilty of all charges and that he spends the rest of his life in a military prison.
