Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's hometown of Hailey, Idaho was unprepared for the public backlash that followed the brief jubilant response to Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s release from the Taliban on Saturday.
First, there was criticism of the Obama administration exchanging five Taliban detainees for Bergdahl. Then, some soldiers from his former unit started speaking out against the freed POW.
Josh Korder, a former Army soldier who served with Bergdahl, told CNN earlier this week that he believes men lost their lives searching for him.
“I mean, at best, he's a deserter. At worst, he's a traitor,” Korder said.
