Republicans Delete Digital Praise of Soldier Release

"Since last weekend's prisoner exchange in which Afghan insurgents turned over Sergeant Bergdahl after five years of captivity, a number of the men who served with him have called him a deserter. Some have gone further, blaming him for the deaths of six to eight soldiers," the New York Times reports.

Mashable: "At least three prominent Republicans appeared to offer praise on Twitter for the rescue of American POW Bowe Bergdahl -- only to later backtrack, scrubbing their tweets or websites of any mention of the soldier after questions arose over the prisoner swap that freed him."
