Bergdahl To Hear His Fate Today-

Sentencing begins today for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Bergdahl pled guilty without any deal with the Army to limit his potential sentence. During pre-sentencing procedures, the judge is expected to hear a range of testimony from witnesses over several days.

Prosecutors will likely present evidence that three service members were severely injured during search-and-rescue missions for the missing soldier who was held by the Taliban after walking off his post. Meanwhile in an interview with the "Sunday Times of London," Bergdahl said his life back in the U.S. is as hard as being a Taliban prisoner.

The CIA has forced a young agent into early retirement because over refusal to do the job. That would be bigger deal if the agent weren't a dog.  The agency says a black Labrador puppy named Lulu was part of the explosive-detection program, but had to be let go because she refused to sniff out explosives. Her handlers concluded that since she showed little interest, she wasn't enjoying the career path that had been chosen for her. The CIA tweeted, "Lulu wasn’t interested in searching for explosives. Even when motivated with food and play, she was clearly no longer enjoying herself." 

Lulu has since been adopted by her handler and is said to be enjoying a non-explosive-sniffing life at home. (CIA.gov)
