Shock: Bowe Bergdahl Left a Note Saying He Wanted to Renounce American Citizenship
There are a lot of accusations flying around, but if this new revelation is true may damage the White House even more from critics who are calling the decision foolish, or even worse.
Some more details from the New York Times:
Sometime after midnight on June 30, 2009, Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl left behind a note in his tent saying he had become disillusioned with the Army, did not support the American mission in Afghanistan and was leaving to start a new life. He slipped off the remote military outpost in Paktika Province on the border with Pakistan and took with him a soft backpack, water, knives, a notebook and writing materials, but left behind his body armor and weapons — startling, given the hostile environment around his outpost.
Wow. Just incredible.
