Here is a man who helps provide all terrain wheelchairs, also known as Track Chairs, to wounded and disabled veterans. Here is a man who openly supports the Wounded Warrior Project.
So why would he spit in the face of every honorable veteran, past, present, and future to say that if Bowe Bergdahl is convicted of the charges and specifications relating to his actions, he should receive any degree of mercy when there are others lying dead because of this man and his actions?
Talking Points Memo Excerpt
Why the Left Does Not Want Bowe Bergdahl Punished
By: Bill O'Reilly (March 30, 2015)
“If Bowe Bergdahl is put on trial, it will be an acute embarrassment for President Obama personally.
Mr. Obama has a lot invested in this story. As mentioned, he brought the sergeant's parents to the White House for a major photo op.
So for those who still believe in Barack Obama, the Bergdahl situation must go.
But of course it will not. The trial will be held unless the sergeant agrees to a plea deal.
One final thing. If Sergeant Bergdahl is convicted, I would not send him to prison.
I think we have to have some mercy here because the guy has suffered. He did cause his own demise, but he has suffered greatly.
No honorable anything, no back pay.
But no vengeance, either.
And that's the memo.”

Bottom line …
Is Bill O’Reilly hanging out with the swells – the rich and powerful New York progressives – and are they warping his view point?
In yesterday’s Talking Points Memo, O’Reilly says alleged Army deserted Bowe Bergdahl should not get prison time and that we should show him some mercy. “No honorable anything [discharge]. No back pay. But no vengeance either.”
What the hell is O’Reilly talking about? Holding a man responsible for his actions on the battlefield has nothing to do with vengeance, only the maintenance of good order and discipline.
Is this what O’Reilly means when he says he “looking out for the folks?”
