Politicians Scramble to Delete Pro-Bergdahl Tweets as Backlash Grows

The growing criticism, most of it coming from the right, has increased in recent days as details of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s Army record have been called in to question.It is believed he walked away from his base in 2009 — unintentionally landing in the open arms of the Taliban, which used him to swap for five of their own in a high-stakes prisoner exchange on Saturday.His hometown canceled a welcoming celebration, citing security concerns, and his release is being examined by Congressional committees.Military leaders — from Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal to Sec. of Defense Chuck Hagel — have so far defended the action, asking critics to reserve judgement until all the facts are known. That hasn’t stopped a rising tide of active and former soldiers decrying the release of a man they blame for the deaths of at least U.S. six soldiers, though no official connection has been made between his disappearance and subsequent casualties.
