    the wingers seem to have decided to leave him alone. I always had the sense it was about Obama and not Bergdahl.

      But I read so many major newspaper message boards, and most commenters want him dead.

      It is really bizarre.

      You could be right. It might be transference to President Obama.

      But everyone seems to know one of the soldiers we sent to be slaughtered in Afghanistan or Iraq. The fury over that is pinpointed on Bergdahl.

      Of course, the investigation continues. And there are some odd aspects, such as the fact that Bergdahl refuses all contact with his parents. My understanding is that he has been very open with investigators. Guileless. No sense of legal context.

      My guess is that he brought back priceless intelligence. I also guess that he will not be charged with a crime. I imagine he could be given a new identity.

      But in the US, he is a dead man walking.
