Bergdahl should be court-martialed for desertion

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl decided to go for a walk after his guard duty ended. During a conflict or a war, you don't leave your post without authorization, which he never had.

Six innocent soldiers went off to look for this deserter and lives were lost. Then to top it off we exchanged five high priority Taliban fighters for him?

I vote a court martial should be given to him!
