Responding to Kelly's questions about an exclusive Fox News report by James Rosen that alleges Bergdahl converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a "warrior for Islam," former platoon leader Evan Buetow said, "We knew that he had deserted."The way these patriots are being attacked is another example of how the Regime and the Democrat liberals have noting but contempt for our military.
Buetow went on to say that the unit on the ground in Afghanistan had knowledge that Bergdahl was attempting to find the Taliban, or someone outside of the platoon with whom he could speak in English who could talk to the Taliban for him.
When asked by Kelly for a head-count of how many among the six platoon members thought Bergdahl deserted, every hand went up.
"It doesn't matter what his motives were. We all took an oath and had to abide by orders, and you don't just leave your fellow Americans to join somebody else," said Cody Full, who was Bergdahl's former roommate.
Former platoon leader Evan Buetow described in detail the morning the platoon realized Bergdahl was missing, and the subsequent search that ensued.
In the days since the platoon members first spoke out about Bergdahl, reports have surfaced that some White House aides have accused the former platoon members of "swift boating," a reference to a group of Vietnam veterans who questioned now Secretary of State John Kerry's military service record during his presidential run in 2004.
Department of State spokespeople have openly called into question the credibility of the soldiers who were there on the ground in Afghanistan when Bergdahl disappeared.
In an even more outrageous turn, a deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development suggested on Twitter that the platoon members speaking out against Bergdahl were "psychopaths." The deputy secretary, Brandon Friedman, was formerly a VA official.
When asked by Kelly for their reaction, the six platoon members gave an incredulous chuckle. Gerald Sutton said he was flattered, because it meant that the administration was noticing their story.
The platoon members all agreed that none of them have political motivations in speaking out against Bergdahl.
