The Associated Press reported on Nov. 14 that, “A military officer testified Monday that he saw another soldier shot in the head during the 2009 search for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who’s accused of endangering comrades by walking off his post in Afghanistan.”
The article also reported that at least one other troop was wounded in the same battle.
The assertion that troops were injured searching for Bergdahl is not new. But this is the first official testimony that I have heard of. Even if it is not the first, this official account is significant.
Senior U.S. military leaders have previously stated that no U.S. troops died while searching for Bergdahl. But this latest official testimony should cause renewed interest of that claim, particularly since accounts from other troops allege that U.S. troops did indeed die while searching for Bergdahl.
