Why Is The White House Stonewalling Over Sgt. Bergdahl? [PODCAST]

Lt. Colonel Anthony Shaffer rejoins the Freedom Report podcast, and today he's the man of the hour. After a statement on Fox News to Bill O'Reilly claiming that Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl would be charged for desertion, Rear Admiral John Kirby is openly denying his report.

Shaffer stands by his statements, and the pressure is on the Obama administration to answer whether or not Bergdahl will indeed be charged with a crime. 

And today we learn that the militants who were traded for Bergdahl in the prisoner swap have been suspected of attempting to return to the fight against the United States. The Libertarian Republic questions former spy Shaffer on whether or not secret prisons such as Guantanamo Bay actually serve the nation's interest, or provide adequate justice. 

Also, who does Shaffer see in the GOP field with the most realistic foreign policy? And what does Lt Colonel Shaffer think of Senator Marco Rubio's desire to extend the PATRIOT Act's bulk collection of American citizen's data indefinitely? Is that really the most effective way to guard against terrorism, to sacrifice liberty for security?
