    We keep hearing about those 6 soldiers who supposedly died “looking for Bowe Bergdahl.” Although military officials have said that there was no connection, the furor from the right keeps growing. But Reuters reports that this is what really happened after Bergdahl left his post and was captured by the Taliban:


    “While many questions remain, a Reuters reconstruction of his disappearance indicates that at the time when Bergdahl’s six comrades in the 1st Battalion of the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment were killed in August and September 2009, his fallen comrades were on other missions like securing the Afghan elections and, according to one U.S. military official, the period of intensive ground searches had already ended.”

    Reuters also reports that the army called off the search for Bergdahl in mid-July. Military officials agree, saying that no one died because of the search for Bergdahl. Their part of Afghanistan was — and is – a war zone. Unfortunately, one of the immutable rules of war is that men get killed in war zones.

    Those in Bergdahl's unit were obviously tools of the radical Right, which is now the vast majority of Republicans, in general.

    Listening to them, and watching, it was pretty obvious what they were up to, as usual.
