The people who served with Bowe Bergdahl knew he deserted. The Pentagon knew he deserted and Obama probably knew it (he does watch the news…) so why would soldiers be told to keep quiet about it?
A soldier claims that he was told by his chain of command to not say anything about Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walking off an Afghan base in 2009.

Perhaps it was commanders trying to keep the lid on poor morale in their unit (a speculation, I do not know what their morale was), or perhaps they did not want a black mark on their records. But the Pentagon never listed Bergdahl as a POW and since the Pentagon HAD to know he was missing it is unlikely that anyone thought he was anything other than a deserter.
I don’t know why soldiers would be told not to talk about it but that is a curious thing. It was widely known among the soldiers involved so it is not like they were keeping secrets from each other and America knew he was missing so that was not a secret.
So why tell people to keep quiet?
Fortunately, many of those who were given these orders are no longer serving and they are breaking their silence. Their voices add reality to the story and prevent the Obama regime from getting away with more lies.
Susan Rice said Bergdahl served with honor and distinction and perhaps she is on to something. Betraying America is honorable to liberals so in her mind Bergdahl is a hero.
When (if) this ever gets investigated I would like that investigation to extend to finding out who gave the keep quiet order and why.
That would be interesting to discover…
Death before dishonor.
If you can’t live by that then don’t serve.
