Bergdahl Platoon Mates Seek Deals

Six former platoon mates of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who spent nearly five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan, are shopping proposals for a book and movie that is sharply critical of him, Yahoo News is reporting. Bergdahl is now being questioned by the Army concerning the mysterious circumstances surrounding his capture in 2009. The Army is trying to determine whether he merely wandered too far from base or should be charged with desertion. A draft of the book proposal, obtained by Yahoo News, asserts that Bergdahl was a "premeditated" deserter who "put all of our lives in danger"/John Riley, USA Today. More here.
