Twenty minutes after Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his remote Army outpost in Afghanistan in the middle of a summer night, carrying little more than vacuum-packed chicken, knives, water and a compass, he began to realize just how dire his predicament was. “I’m going, ‘Good grief, I’m in over my head,’ ” Sergant Bergdahl said. “Suddenly, it really starts to sink in that I really did something bad,” he continued. “Or, not bad, but I really did something serious.” Sergeant Bergdahl recounted his experience publicly for the first time in the premiere episode of the second season of the podcast “Serial,” which was released at 6 a.m. Thursday/Richard A. Oppel Jr & John Koblen, New York Times. More here.
