Ralph Peters on the White House and Bowe Bergdahl

In charging Bowe Bergdahl with desertion, the Army defied the White House’s “tooth and nail” fight to give the embattled sergeant a slap on the wrist, retired Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters tells Newsmax TV.

“I’m very proud of the U.S. Army, because this is clearly a case of the Army standing up to all the pressure the Obama administration could bring to bear,” Peters said Wednesday on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”
