Squad Leader: Calling Bergdahl a Hero 'A Slap in the Face'

U.S. Army Sgt. Evan Buetow, Bowe Bergdahl’s squad leader, told “America’s Newsroom” anchor Martha MacCallum on Wednesday that Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion changed the nature of his squad’s operation, and that he was unhappy with the Obama administration’s praise of Bergdahl.

Buetow stated “when Bergdahl left the entire mission statement and the whole mission changed. Everything went to a recovery mission.” He also said that declarations that Bergdahl served honorably “made me upset” because stating “the exact opposite of what happened and it is a slap in the face.” He concluded that Bergdahl “is no hero, he’s a deserter.”
