We’ll know soon whether Bergdahl will be subject to court martial.

x_bergh_attorney_140807Email today from defense counsel Eugene Fidell, also founder of the National Institute of Military Justice:

At 1:30 p.m. today, Lieutenant Colonel Mark A Visger, the Army judge advocate who served as preliminary hearing officer for Sergeant Bergdahl’s case,submitted his report to Lieutenant Colonel Peter Q. Burke, the special courtmartial convening authority at Fort Bragg, NC. Copies were furnished to the defense.

Given the ongoing battle I mentioned in the last post —  to have all documents relevant to the case released to the public– Fidell is waiting until the Army makes the announcement, emphasizing that the report is unclassified.  This is tense. Stay tuned.
