Squad Leader Spills Beans On Swapped Sergeant
Does anyone think Obama will let Bergdahl be charged?
Check it out:
A man who served as U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s squad leader before he went missing in southeastern Afghanistan five years ago tells WND the soldier “was a little unstable” and “abandoned his post, [leaving] four guys sleeping with no one covering them” because he was “fed up with the establishment, with poor leadership.”
Greg Leatherman was in charge of the five-man operation Bergdahl allegedly abandoned on June 30, 2009. The Taliban held Bergdahl, 28, in captivity for five years until the Obama administration agreed to release five high-level terrorists from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Bergdahl’s freedom on May 31.
The White House has praised the return of Bergdahl from Taliban custody, and National Security Adviser Susan Rice claimed Sunday that Bergdahl served with “distinction.” But Leatherman said, “Something isn’t right because he’s being labeled as a hero.”
“I would never abandon my battle buddies while they slept,” Leatherman said, adding that Bergdahl left the men “open to ambush.” “I would know that I’d be captured immediately. A short, American guy trudging through Afghanistan in ACUs [Army Combat Uniform]. I’d do what I did. I’d take a knee, face out, pull security and suck it the hell up.”
