I disagree with LTC Mark Visger. His job as investigating officer on the Article 32 was to see if there was enough information to bring charges under the Manual for Courts-Martial. It does not include a recommendation for the type of Court-Martial. At least that is my interpretation of the MCM. Only the convening authority can make the decision on the level of Court-Martial for Bowe Bergdahl.
What happened to the charges concerning the five members of Bergdahl’s unit who were killed/ambushed by the Taliban when they were searching for Bergdahl? He needs to be held responsible for their deaths.
