Bergdahl's Platoon Leader: 'Not One Person' in Platoon Disagrees That He Deserted
Speculation is brewing regarding the U.S. Army’s investigation into Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s disappearance from his base in Afghanistan in 2009.
Bergdahl was held by the Taliban for five years before being swapped for five Gitmo detainees. The investigation into his disappearance is now complete, but the Army has yet to release the findings.
Sgt. Evan Buetow, the leader of Bergdahl’s platoon, and Lt. Col. Ralph Peters were on “Hannity” tonight to discuss.
Buetow said that right after Bergdahl left the base, they heard over the radio that an American was trying to talk to the Taliban. Buetow said he explained that to the general.
Sean Hannity asked Buetow if anyone in his platoon disagrees with the assessment that Bergdahl deserted his post.
“There’s not one person who disagrees. I know—I have a list of people that the general spoke to during this investigation. It’s everyone from the platoon, and I know exactly what they said. There’s no way that they can conclude this investigation without the truth,” Buetow said.
Peters said that the investigation’s findings will be withheld until after the midterm elections because “no matter which way the report goes, Obama loses.”
