Bergdahl: Coming Home Was Harder Than Living in Captivity

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl said returning home to the U.S. was more difficult than being held hostage by the Taliban. “At least the Taliban were honest enough to say, ‘I’m the guy who’s gonna cut your throat,’” Bergdahl told The Sunday Times. “Here, it could be the guy I pass in the corridor who’s going to sign the paper that sends me away for life.” Bergdahl, who was held in Afghanistan for five years after leaving his base, pleaded guilty last week to desertion charges.
