Juan Williams, a Fox News analyst brought some reality to the Sgt. Bergdahl situation by calling Republican politicians "craven" who have been flop-flopping on the prisoner exchange.
June 8, 2014

Fox News started attacking the release of Sgt. Bergdahl as soon as President Obama made the announcement and it hasn't stopped yet. Even on today's Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, asked if the death penalty should be on the table for the freed U.S. POW. That's like totally nuts by the way.

Juan Williams, a Fox News analyst brought some reality to the situation on the same show by calling Republican politicians "craven" who have been flop-flopping ever since the decision was made to attack this prisoner exchange to try and score some political points. Williams started off by saying that we don't know the what or why behind his capture, but he must be brought home.

Williams: You don't make judgements at the opportunity to bring that young man home....But the idea is we don't leave people in the enemy's hands. The enemy saw him as an American soldier. This young man suffered. He was caged, Chris. His parents suffered. And yet people want to argue about the father’s beard. They want to say they shouldn’t have a parade. Let the military decide. The military is best positioned not us sitting here on this panel and not all the political people on the Republican side who have flip-flopped, flip-flopped, Chris in the most craven way. Unbelievable...

The only way Republicans can get away with this is to portray Sgt. Bergdahl as America's our enemy by calling him a Taliban collaborator which is wrong on so many levels. it's been disgusting to watch this happen along with seeing some of those flip-floppers in action like Rep. Richard B. Nugent, Sen. John McCain, Sen. Tim Scott, and former congressman and very insane Allen B. West.
