Americans should give Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl a break and not condemn his release until all the facts are in, says Newsday columnist and bestselling author Ellis Henican.

"Let justice be done upon his return. If the guy did something bad let's punish him for it, no problem with that,'' Henican told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"But you wouldn't want him to be punished before he had his day in court or in a court martial would you? Do you believe in evidence or you don't need evidence?''

Story continues below video.



Bergdahl, who was swapped for five Taliban terrorists, is facing allegations he deserted his unit.

Henican thinks all Americans believe in bringing the nation's soldiers back, no matter what the circumstance.

"When we send our kids over there and they are kids, let's recognize … we have a responsibility to get them back whether they are our best kids or our worst kids,'' he said.

"We have a duty as Americans, we are not the kind of people who leave our soldiers in the battle zone.''
