The Hailey, Idaho native was able to tell his side of the story for the first time. The military is trying to find out how and why Bergdahl ended up a Taliban captive for five years. His Attorney, Eugene Fidell, said Bergdahl had no trouble handling the questioning.
"We're talking about a guy who is a pretty tough hombre,” said Fidell. “He's gone through an experience that any of us, no offense to members of your profession, that any of us would find extremely taxing. This is easy compared to things he's had to deal with."
Some of Bergdahl’s army comrades have accused him of desertion, but his attorney said that’s far from the truth. This investigation’s findings will help determine whether the 28-year-old is prosecuted for desertion or faces any other disciplinary action.
