Serial interview

10 Dec, 2015

Bergdahl is interviewed on the Serial podcast.

All I was seeing was basically, leadership failure to the point that the lives of the guys standing next to me, were, literally, from what I could see, in danger of something seriously going wrong and somebody being killed.

When the interviewer calls his actions a “gutsy move”:

Gutsy, but still stupid…Twenty minutes out, I’m going ‘good grief. I’m way over my head’… suddenly it really starts to sink in. I really did something bad. Well, not bad, but I really did something serious.

He says it took the Taliban about a day to find him.

I couldn’t do anything against six or seven guys with AK-47s, and they pulled up and that was it.

On captivity:

To the point where you just want to scream, and like I can’t scream. I can’t risk that, so it’s like you’re standing there, screaming in your mind.
