Bergdahl Owes Answers

Says a former Green Beret.

Jun. 3, 2014

Former Army Green Beret commander Michael Waltz was in charge of the search teams when Bowe Bergdahl deserted his post. He said, “As soon as we received word that we had a missing American soldier whose whereabouts were unknown, we essentially stopped everything. Every soldier, thousands of soldiers throughout eastern Afghanistan, were ordered to stop what they were doing, whether they were involved in construction or searching for senior Taliban leadership, everyone stopped what they were doing and began a search for Private Bergdahl. … What was really disturbing is that the Taliban knew we were searching for him, and were leaving false clues in order to set up ambushes of our personnel. … Bergdahl owes the mothers of soldiers who did not come home answers.”
