A tweet from last year by Cody Full (@CodyFNfootball), the RW media star leading the campaign of vilification against Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl.
There are lots more, like his ceaseless venom towards President Obama, his support for Cliven Bundy, his regular use of ‘Libtard’ – and his scrubbing of his social media offerings that included ‘a N****r’ pic once he began his Twitter campaign against Bergdahl.
And this, a screenshot from a fundraising site for the other RW media star leading the campaign of vilification against Sergeant Bergdahl, Josh Korder:
That’s right, he is looking for money to help him tell the ‘truth’.
Both soldiers are everywhere in the media at the moment, casting Bergdahl – and, ultimately, their President – as a traitor, and so far, absolutely nobody has questioned them about any possible agenda.
Korder, for example, appeared on Britain’s Channel 4 news yesterday where he was interviewed by the usually excellent Krishnan Guru-Murthy – but not once was he questioned about a possible personal agenda, or about his efforts to profit from his media tour.
So, I tweeted this to Guru-Murthy, and to his credit he replied:
@TheObamaDiary thanks – will look into it

If he does look in to it, that would be great, but I don’t see any US media big guns promising to do the same
No reply, needless to say, from Mr Tapper:

Another firsthand account on #TheLead today: the first TV interview of Bergdahl’s squad leader, there that night he vanished. Tune in!

So, anticipate yet another unquestioning chat with Cody Full, a far right racist with a seething hatred for the President – one who was particularly alarmed by Sergeant Bergdahl’s habit of reading books and desire to learn languages other than his own. Which he thought made him weird
This, incidentally, is the guy who is pimping Cody Full to the media:

Are Cody Full and Josh Korder telling the truth?
Maybe they are. Maybe Sergeant Bergdahl does have serious questions to answer – no one knows for certain yet.
But before the media present ‘witnesses’, shouldn’t they at least vet these people to check for motives? You know, a simple Twitter search would do the job.
My own hunch, for what it’s worth (not much): Sergeant Bergdahl is a thinking man, unlike Cody and Josh, who was horrified by what went on in his unit, and was utterly disillusioned and depressed by it all and the pointless war he had signed up for. He was, I think, just 23 at the time, and had witnessed unrelenting carnage, much of it committed by his own unit. And, so, he broke down. And wandered away.
No. A broken human being.
Few people considering possibility that soldiers from his unit are slamming Bergdahl because there’s something he could expose

From Rolling Stone:
As his tour dragged on, the hellish reality of war – including seeing an Afghan child run over by an American truck – weighed on Bergdahl, who came to see America’s presence in Afghan as “disgusting.”
“I am sorry for everything here,” Bowe told his parents. “These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid…
“We don’t even care when we hear each other talk about running their children down in the dirt streets with our armored trucks.”
Cody Full says he’s lying. But why would he lie about something like that in a personal email to his parents?
He can’t have known then that those personal emails would become public.
Is that what’s behind the campaign against Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl?
He knows stuff.
Stuff the racist Cody and profit-seeking Josh really, really don’t want anyone to know – so, best brand Bergdahl as a traitor, with the the help of an unquestioning media.
Love and best wishes to the Bergdahl family. The hate they are enduring is simply beyond belief.
