The Travis King case is already starting to resemble the Bowe Bergdahl case. King appears to have tried to defect to North Korea. The Norks decided that they didn’t want him, but the Biden administration sure does.
“U.S. officials have secured the return of Private Travis King from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said in a statement. “We appreciate the dedication of the interagency team that has worked tirelessly out of concern for Private King’s wellbeing.”
A US military official who spoke to DailyMail.com said that questions about a court martial or other sanctions on King for his actions would be deferred for the time being, while he receives any necessary medical or psychological care.
‘Our focus right now is caring for him and his family. And we’ll work through all those administrative status questions following the completion of his reintegration,’ the person said.
‘When he arrives on US soil, he will be evaluated by a very talented, and experienced team who are going to guide him through a reintegration process that will address any medical and emotional concerns and ensure we get him in a good place to reunite with his family,’ the official added.
This is how we handle defections now? Soldiers who refused to get vaccinated were booted out unceremoniously, but defecting to some of our worst enemies merits a “talented and experienced team” guiding him through a “reintegration process” and a “family reunion”?
American and South Korean guards shouted “get him” as they scrambled unsuccessfully to stop U.S. Army soldier Travis King from sprinting into North Korea, a New Zealand woman who was on the same tour to the border area said on Wednesday.
“It all happened pretty quickly,” said Sarah Leslie, who was in the Joint Security Area (JSA) of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) with some 40 other tourists who were walking around and taking photos in the moments before King made a mad dash to nuclear-armed and reclusive North Korea.
But this is an administration of traitors and they know their own kind.
North Korea said Tuesday that Travis King, the private who bolted across the military demarcation line with South Korea in July, had confessed to defecting because of “inhuman” treatment in the U.S. Army.
“During the investigation, Travis King confessed that he had decided to come over to the DPRK as he harbored ill feeling against inhuman maltreatment and racial discrimination within the U.S. Army,” the North Korean officials said.
“He also expressed his willingness to seek refugee in the DPRK or a third country, saying that he was disillusioned at the unequal American society. The investigation continues.”
You can see why the Biden administration sympathizes with this.
