Bergdahl today filed the below Petition for Reconsideration. The defense team appears to have added eminent scholar/litigator Steve Vladeck, as well as the senior leadership of the Army's appellate defense shop.
The chorus of critics of the decision grows larger, with former SECDEF Hagel weighing in over the weekend. I am not aware of any reasoned defenses of the opinion or the outcome. Would anyone like to make the case?
