While we all celebrate the return of Bowe Bergdahl to American soil after five years of being held captive by the Taliban as a prison of war, it's kind of important to recognize what a goldmine of awfulness the whole situation is. Of course we don't want to leave any soldiers behind on the battlefield, but is that what really happened?
No. No, it's not. Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban after he allegedly wandered off into the Afghan desert after becoming disillusioned with the war. The military never classified him a deserter, but ... yeah. He was never classified as a POW either, so there's that.
Days before he disappeared, he even wrote to his parents, "... I am ashamed to even be American. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting ... I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting."
