REVEALED! Returned Sgt. BOWE BERGDAHL left note for pals he was deserting before being “captured” by Taliban – may now face charges as OBAMA defends terror trade.   

As President Obama is under fire for “negotiating with terrorists” in his 5 for 1 Gitmo trade, starling new revelations have emerged about returned Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, 28.  

The New York Times reported that Bergdahl left behind a note in which he said he did not want to fight for America any more, did not believe in the war – and was leaving to start a new life when he walked away from US base in Afghanistan.

In a remote section of the war zone Bergdahl’s platoon  searched the observation but only found Bergdahl’s sleeping bag that had been neatly folded up.

A huge search ensued during which time at least six US soldiers are said to have died while hunting for Bergdahl, 28, who has just been released from five years in captivity with the Taliban.

A  fellow solider who requested anonymity because he is still serving told the MailOnline what happened when he discovered that Bergdah; had just “walked off” from the Afghan base. “Everyone looked at me like I was crazy but I was right, he had walked off.”

Now the US Army may pursue charges against Sgt. Bergdahl on charges of desertion.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, said that after military leaders were accused of “looking away from misconduct, and it's premature” to think there won’t be a probe.

Yet, Susan Rice, Obama's national security adviser told media after the terror trade deal was brokered that Sgt. Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction”.

The anonymous platoon mate of Bergdahl’s told the MailOnline, “As far as I’m concerned Bergdahl deserted his men and should face the firing squad. People died trying to save him. He was a deserter”.

Now the heat is really on for Obama who’s judgment is now in question for releasing five Taliban kingpins of terror from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for a soldier who may face charges for abandoning his unit and his oath to the U.S. Army in time of war.
