In a podcast called Serial, Bowe Bergdahl is attempting to give his side of the story, and it’s about as ridiculous as you would think.
In June of 2009, Bowe Bergdahl walked off of his outpost in Afghanistan in the middle of the night. His intentions were unknown, however many people suspected that he was deserting his unit, after becoming disillusioned with the war.
Shortly after walking off of his outpost, he was captured by the Taliban, and held for five years before his release. Controversy has surrounded every aspect of this incident since it happened, and we’ve heard almost nothing from the man himself, with the exception of a few e-mails to his family released by Rolling Stones after his capture.
Now we have access to his stories in a podcast entitled Serial, by Sarah Koenig. Some of the stuff this guy has been saying is absolutely classic, and it sounds as if he really thought he was off to win the war on terror all by himself.
In the latest episode of the podcast, Bergdahl has been quoted as saying
“Doing what I did is me saying that I am like, I don’t know, Jason Bourne. I had this fantastic idea that I was going to prove to the world that I was the real thing. You know, that I could be what it is that all those guys out there that go to the movies and watch those movies — they all want to be that — but I wanted to prove I was that.”
Spoken like a true champion of Call of Duty.
Among his amazing comments about thinking he could be Jason Bourne, he has also stated that claims of him leaving a note behind, expressing his disillusionment, are false.
It’s uncanny that this podcast is being released now, as Bergdahl is facing court-martial charges that could lead to a life sentence. You can listen to the madness >>>HERE.<<<
