Private Bowe Berdahl has been seen in a Taliban propaganda video -- and blowhard Murdoch pundit Ralph Peters has told Fox News that maybe the Taliban should just kill him:

"Nobody in the military is defending this guy, he is an apparent deserter, reports are indeed that he abandoned his buddies, abandoned his post and walked off...On that video he is collaborating with the enemy.

"... if he walked away from his post and his buddies in wartime, I don't care how hard it sounds, as far as I'm concerned the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and a lot of legal bills."

Um, I know Peters was in the military for about 22 years, but did he ever see combat?

Peters really enjoys proclaiming that other people are pure evil and deserve to be the targets of violence -- a couple of months ago he called war correspondents "killers without guns" and argued that they also may deserve to be killed:

Pretending to be impartial, the self-segregating personalities drawn to media careers overwhelmingly take a side, and that side is rarely ours. Although it seems unthinkable now, future wars may require censorship, news blackouts and, ultimately, military attacks on the partisan media.

Here are an edited and (via the Jawa Report) the full video of Private Berdahl:
