Retired General Stanley McChrystal spoke out on Wednesday about the recent firestorm over Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, telling Yahoo News that critics should not "judge" him until all the facts are available and Bergdahl can tell his story. He also addressed recent stories claiming that soldiers died trying to rescue Bergdahl, saying, "We made a great effort and put a lot of people at risk in doing that, but that’s what you should do. That’s what soldiers do for each other.” McChrystal, who was in charge in Afghanistan during Bergdahl's disappearance also said he would have made the prisoner swap. “We don’t leave Americans behind. That’s unequivocal," he explained.
