Bergdahl’s conduct investigated

It seems that everything Bowe Bergdahl has pretty much knocked the VA scandal, among others, off the current news cycle. Quite possibly never to be taken up by the MSM again.
Not that Bowe Bergdahl’s possible desertion and possible release of a classified file put together by the U.S. intelligence community showing collaboration isn't important.

Sources: Intelligence community investigated Bergdahl’s conduct
A senior official confirms to Fox News that the conduct of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl -- both in his final stretch of active duty in Afghanistan and then, too, during his time when he lived among the Taliban -- has been thoroughly investigated by the U.S. intelligence community and is the subject of "a major classified file."
In conveying as much, the Defense Department source confirmed to Fox News that many within the intelligence community harbor serious outstanding concerns not only that Bergdahl may have been a deserter but that he may have been an active collaborator with the enemy.
The Pentagon official added pointedly that no relevant congressional committee has sought access to the classified file, but that if such a request were made, key committee chairs would, under previous precedent, likely be granted access to it. Separately, the Pentagon confirmed Monday that it is looking into claims Americans died during the search for Bergdahl.
The administration announced over the weekend that Bergdahl's release had been secured, in exchange for five Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. President Obama was joined by the soldier's parents in making a public statement on the release Saturday evening from the Rose Garden.
Sources told Fox News that many officials in the Executive Branch are "quite baffled" by the White House's decision to allow the president to stand alongside Bergdahl's father this past weekend, given the father's history of controversial statements, emails and online posts.~snip~
You can't tell me that Obama and his administration had no idea how problematic this swap for Bergdahl could be given the stuff just now starting to come out not only from his fellow soldiers but along official channels also.
It's the equivalent of shifting attention from one scandal by essentially creating another one.

Then again why not?
This administration has yet to be held accountable for anything from Fast and Furious to the IRS to Benghazi to the VA.
There's way more to this swap than we'll ever know and Obama will get away with weakening this country again.
