Two of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s former platoon members tonight told Megyn Kelly that they believe he is a deserter.
Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban and held for five years until this weekend, when the Obama administration released five Gitmo detainees in exchange for Bergdahl.
“Without a doubt in my mind,” Cody Full said when asked if he thought Bergdahl was a deserter. Full said the sergeant mailed all of his belongings home, talked about the region’s terrain extensively and spoke to Afghan National Police “with an agenda.” He also cited emails to his parents published in Rolling Stone that said he was disillusioned with the war and that “the horror that is America is disgusting.”
Some have attributed the deaths of six servicemen to incidents where they were searching for Bergdahl. Full said that they would not have been where they were if they didn’t have a mission to find the missing soldier.
“He violated his oath when he deserted us and put other Americans in jeopardy,” Full said.
Gerald Sutton, another former platoon member, agreed that Bergdahl is a deserter.
“I just don’t want to see him hailed as a hero, and I just want him to face the consequences of his own actions and possibly face a court marshal for desertion,” Sutton said.
