Bowe Bergdahl Says Life Is Actually Worse Since Release from Taliban

Bowe Bergdahl Says Life Is Actually Worse Since Release from Taliban

Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. Army sergeant who pleaded guilty Monday to deserting his post in Afghanistan in 2009, says his Taliban captors were more "honest" with him than the Army has been since his release three years ago.

U.S. Army Sgt. Robert Bowdrie "Bowe" Bergdahl, (L) 29 of Hailey, Idaho, is escorted to the Ft.

"At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, 'I'm the guy who's gonna cut your throat, '" he told journalist Sean Langan, according to Fox News, citing the British Sunday Times.

"We may as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs".

Army Col. Jeffery R. Nance is the judge who will decide Bergdahl's fate.

Prosecutors are expected to put on evidence or testimony about soldiers and a Navy SEAL who were seriously wounded by gunfire during separate search missions.

Delhi Environment Min. reviews air quality
The court on October 9 affirmed the ban it had imposed on the sale of firecrackers in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR). However, he predicted that things would improve in the coming days as there were chances of rise in wind speed.

He was held until 2014 when a controversial decision was made by then President Barack Obama to release five Taliban prisoners in exchange for Bergdahl.

He said life in the states is worse than being held hostage by the Taliban.

Bergdahl faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty last week to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

In January, Bergdahl's lawyers filed a motion to dismiss, arguing that a fair trial was impossible after months of President Donald Trump's public cheering of Bergdahl's possible death.

President Barack Obama brought him home in 2014 in a swap for five Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, saying the USA does not leave its service members on the battlefield.
