How Low Can They Go?

Here’s a heartwarming bit from one of the patriots at over on Fox News that I hadn’t heard about until today:
Bowe Bergdahl is a 23-year-old American soldier that has been captured by the Taliban. Fox News strategic analyst Ralph Peters doesn’t have any sympathies for the soldier because he suspects Bergdahl may have deserted his unit.

Peters escalated his rhetoric when he suggested that the Taliban should kill Bergdahl. “I want to be clear. If when the facts are in we find out it’s through some convoluted chain of events he really was captured by the Taliban, I’m with him. But if he walked away from his post and his buddies in wartime — I don’t care how hard it sounds — as far as I’m concerned the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills,” said Peters.

If and when the facts are in, he says. What a prudent man. In the meantime, he’ll just go on national television and suggest that the Taliban execute an American soldier. Isn’t that cute?
