A former member of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl‘s platoon interrupted a Democrat on Capital Hill Wednesday as he asked an academic expert about conditions the soldier might have endured in Afghanistan to tell him “nobody else deserted.”
To the annoyance of U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., former Army Specialist Cody Full asked for permission to speak as the lawmaker was in the process of building a case that Bergdahl may have had reason to act in “an inexplicable manner.”
“You’re asking Dr. Jacobson what situation Bergdahl was in over there; I was with Bergdahl, at the same location,” Cody Full interjected. “I can give you a firsthand account of exactly what Bergdahl was going through, because I went through the exact same conditions.”
Full went on to explain what the men in the platoon endured, and pointed out that “nobody else deserted” which seemed to be a little too much common sense for a partisan politician more interested in establishing a desired narrative than in discovering the truth.
