North Korea is busy with him. Very busy.

K.J. is scheduled to meet him, his fate will be boardcasting to the world !

I can only imagine those security personnel from south part that want to stop that private from doing foolish action, only being hesitant because of being reminded of extra rules of engagement post-BLM movement.

This King guy seems like he has a few screws loose. Where/how do they recruit these guys? JHS dropouts hanging out in malls?

I bet he'll actually be treated pretty well: he will be a novelty to spice up the NK war dramas.

First, he will be treated as a spy.

He wanted defection. What were hearing in Korea. They may have no word for sometime. He will be the first American to say he went through the South Korean and North Korean hard labor detention facilities.

That has to be a first. But why North Korea? I am seriously wondering if a girl maybe be involved. This is defection. Has to be. No one. I mean no one in their right mind willfully crosses that line.

Leave him there. Don't waste out tax dollars on this fool.

I think the Norks are smart enough to know that this guy is of no use to them at all, they know all about him by now and he is of no value to them or to the US.

What they should do is just quietly hand him over to the Chinese and ask them to send him back to the US Army. That way they need have no contact with the US side and face is saved all around.

If common sense were fuel, this guy couldn't charge up a flea's go-kart to do two laps around a cheerio.

The biggest “secret” a Pvt in an armored unit would be privy to is that Staff Sergeant is having an affair with an admin clerk, and the vehicle commander is gay.

Forget about him. Don't mention him to the Norks. It happened. It's over. Drive him nuts by showing no interest in repatriating him or even knowing what happened to him.

As soon as they determine that he has no value as a hostage, they’ll send him back just so that they don’t have to feed him and are not held responsible if he gets sick.

Bergdahl just went AWOL, admittedly in a very stupid manner. We have more treasonous people in Congress and the former president.
