Bergdahl's former squad leader: He did not serve with honor and distinction

(CNN) – When Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl first joined his squad in Afghanistan, he was a "good soldier," says former U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Justin Gerleve, Bergdahl's former squad leader.

"He listened to what we needed to do, and got done what he was asked to do. He was willing to train, and always asked a lot of questions on what needed to happen," says Gerleve.

But the former Army staff sergeant says he believes Bergdahl "totally deserted not only his fellow soldiers, but also his leadership."

According to firsthand accounts from soldiers in his platoon, Bergdahl shed his weapons and walked off the observation post with nothing more than a compass, a knife, water, a digital camera and a diary.

The entire process, years in the making, has raised a lot of questions about whether the move will increase American kidnappings overseas, and if Bergdahl's release was worth the freedom of these five dangerous men.

Two former Department of Defense officials who were involved in the initial negotiations said the Taliban offered a better deal this time.
