The Daily Mail reported:
A U.S. Army investigation found that Bowe Bergdahl had walked away from his post at least once before his capture – and that other soldiers in his unit knew he was a flight risk.
The 2010 report, called an AR15-6, is still classified, but it appears to confirm allegations that the former prisoner of war violated military regulations – and that the Pentagon knew it all along.
The revelation, attributed to anonymous sources by the Military Times, comes as the nation’s top general, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, acknowledged the growing cloud of suspicion hanging over Bergdahl.
The Military Times report says that investigators who looked into the June 2009 capture of Bergdahl found that several soldiers from his unit said he had talked openly about wanting to leave the forward operating base where he was stationed.
