In this podcast, an excerpt from this week’s “Reform This!” Dr. Zuhdi Jasser gives you his take on Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the soldier who pleaded guilty to desertion charges last week. Bergdahl walked away from his post in Afghanistan in June, 2009. He was captured by Jihadis soon after and spent five years as a prisoner of war. According to military officials, six US soldiers died searching for Bergdahl during the five years he was missing. In 2014, then-President Obama exchanged five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl’s safe return. At the time of his release, Bergdahl was praised for having “served with honor and distinction.”
Over the weekend, an interview with Bergdhal was released in which, “He complained and whined about President Trump and how [Trump’s] language caused him to get the most extreme judication,” explains Dr. Zuhdi. “He continued to whine and, I have to tell you, as he pled guilty, I prayed that he get the strongest sentence … for deserting his troops, for deserting his country, for the search that then led to the deaths of upwards of six different service men who were looking for him.”
Listen to the podcast above to get Dr. Zuhdi’s full take.
