  •  I've never seen that information (4+ / 0-)

    I've read that he was friendly with some locals.   I've read that he may have left with a few locals.   I've read the one suspicious report by "a former high-ranking military official" stating he may have left the outpost not on-foot but in a contractor's vehicle.

    Nowhere have I read anything about the bodies of dead Afghan friends of Bergdahl's.  

    Can you find a link for me, please?


    •  This, perhaps. (7+ / 0-)
      As soon as [Bergdahl] joined his fellow soldiers, he began to gravitate away from his unit. "He spent more time with the Afghans than he did with his platoon," Fry says. His father, recalling that time, would later describe his son to military investigators as "psychologically isolated."

      Over the next month, as he saw more of the war firsthand, Bowe's e-mails to his family lost their sense of absurdity and took on a darker edge. In one heartbreaking incident at the end of May, an Afghan official and four of his children were killed in a Taliban attack. The bodies were moved to Bowe's outpost, along with a wounded Afghan police officer.

      I've read excerpts from other emails to his parents with similar stories.
