Bowe Bergdahl: The US treated me worse than the Taliban

A military media outlet and a production company are planning a documentary examining the military's search for Bowe Bergdahl

"At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, 'I'm the guy who's gonna cut your throat, '" Bergdahl said. He said he had carefully avoided news about Bergdahl's case, and had not seen Trump's comments until they came up in the defense motion.

Bergdahl faces up to five years in prison on the desertion charge. During his sentencing, soldiers injured in the process of rescuing Bergdahl will speak; already Former Army Corporal Jonathan Morita has voiced his recommendation, he told reporters that Bergdahl should be dishonorably discharged and given life in prison.

President Trump has inadvertently thrown a wrench into the final stage of Army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl's trial.

Bergdahl is expected to appear for sentencing on Monday in a military courtroom after pleading guilty to desertion and misbehaviour before the enemy.

The Army judge in the case, Colonel Jeffery Nance, has previously ruled the comments by the then-candidate were "disturbing" but refused to dismiss the case.

Bowe Bergdahl a "traitor, " as President Trump says he is, or does he deserve some leniency?

Afghanistan Mosque Bombings Kill 60
The militants razed the base in the Chashmo area of Maiwand district to the ground, according to the defence ministry. On Friday, two separate attacks on mosques killed scores of people in Afghanistan.

It's unclear if prosecutors and the defense reached some sort of agreement ahead of sentencing about Bergdahl's fate. "President Trump stands at the pinnacle of an unbroken chain of command that includes key participants in the remaining critical steps of the case", the defense argued in its motion, according to the Los Angeles Times. Instead, the words "recognize that [the comments] were made and that people had heard them", he said. He called the prosecutor's argument about the latest statement "a strained interpretation".

"In the good old days, he would have been executed", Trump said.

Oshana also pointed to a White House statement on military justice released Friday ahead of Bergdahl's hearing. Now, the disgraced military officer awaits his sentencing.

On Oct. 23, Judge Nance allowed attorneys to question him regarding the impact of Trump's statements, and he ultimately delayed the sentencing until Oct. 25 so he could thoroughly consider the defense motion, the Associated Press reports.

The judge, who said there was no doubt he could be fair and impartial, did not immediately rule.

The Obama administration was highly criticised for a deal that saw the United States exchanging five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo Bay with Bergdahl. Investigators said Bergdahl suffered from schizotypal personality disorder when he left his post.
