Vets Accuse Bowe Bergdahl of Walking Away


"They will be debriefing him extensively during reintegration process to get his side of the story,” Corn said.

After Bergdahl’s release, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Sunday that Bergdahl had served the U.S. “with honor and distinction.”

She declined to say whether the U.S. plans to re-investigate Bergdahl’s capture.

“I’m not going to speculate on what the future looks like or whether he needs a lawyer, let’s just get him back,” the Pentagon spokesperson said today.

A former Army Ranger who spoke to ABC News on the condition of anonymity said he was familiar with the community in which Bergdahl lives and said he understood the soldier to be a “good kid.”

“There is a lot of speculation around his detention and there is truth on both sides,” the ex-Ranger said. “The only ‘win’ in this is that no more Americans will be put into harm’s way looking for Bowe.”

ABC News’ Rhonda Schwartz and Lee Ferran contributed to this report.
