Joe Scarborough, Chuck Todd Fight Over Whether Bob Bergdahl Is a Bad Father

'I would not say "follow your conscience, son"; I would not reach out to the voice of jihad!'

Epic Scarborough v. Todd Fight: Bob Bergdahl Is a Bad Father (Washington Free Beacon)

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough and NBC reporter Chuck Todd engaged in a fierce debate about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s father Thursday on MSNBC.

Bergdahl’s father, Bob Bergdahl, reportedly encouraged his son to “obey” his conscience after the younger expressed dismay with the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan:

“Dear Bowe,” he wrote. “In matters of life and death, and especially at war, it is never safe to ignore ones’ conscience. Ethics demands obedience to our conscience. It is best to also have a systematic oral defense of what our conscience demands. Stand with like minded men when possible.” He signed it simply “dad.”
