Bowe Bergdahl, American Hero or Deserter?
Today on Real Talk with Rashad Richey our special guest was former Air Force Veteran and Attorney Harry Daniels. Attorney Daniels joined Rashad and the WAOK audience in the discussion of US soldier Sergent Bowe Bergdahl, a former Afghan prisoner of war who was recently released to back into the custody of the United States. Sergant Bergdahl was held captive by Taliban forces for five years, and was released in a swap for five Taliban prisoners, whom were previously held at Guantanamo Bay.
Speculation sparked after the release of Bowe Bergdahl, after soldiers who served with him stated that he deserted his post, which is what led to him being captured by Taliban forces. In efforts to bring him back to safety, six Special Forces member were killed. Those soldiers have since created a Facebook page entitled “Bowe Bergdahl is NOT a Hero!” and have also began an online petition to punish him for desertion.
