Bergdahl apologizes to troops wounded while searching for him


An emotional Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on Monday apologized to members of the military who were wounded searching for him after he deserted his post, and described the nightmares he has about his five years as a Taliban prisoner.

Bergdahl was the first witness in what’s expected to be a multi-day presentation by the defense to the judge who will decide his penalty for endangering comrades in Afghanistan in 2009.

He testified for two hours, giving a wide-ranging description of his brutal years in captivity.

“I would like everyone who searched for me to know it was never my intention for anyone to be hurt, and I never expected that to happen,” he said at the Fort Bragg, NC, court, choking up at times. “My words alone can’t take away their pain.”

Bergdahl faces a maximum of life in prison after pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
