A soldier claims that he was told by his chain of command to not say anything about Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl walking off an Afghan base in 2009.
"We had all known that he had deserted his post and there was never anything about him getting captured or a POW until a little while later when it came down from the chain-of-command that we needed to keep quiet about it, not say anything and that we're going with the narrative that he's captured," Fuller told Fox News.
A welcoming party in the home town of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier freed from Afghan captivity, has been cancelled amid suspicions that he deserted his post. A statement said the event in Hailey, Idaho, was cancelled for "safety reasons" because of a large increase in the number of expected attendees. The Army is launching a review into the circumstances surrounding Sgt. Bergdahl's capture in June 2009.
To get your university art project featured on Time, the Huffington Post, the Independent, the Mirror, the Telegraph, and Die Welt in the same week isn't an easy feat. It takes talent, dedication, good connections, and, occasionally, boiling and eating a chunk of your own body.
That's the path taken by 25-year-old Norwegian Alexander Selvik Wengshoel. Wengshoel was born with a deformed hip and has spent most of his life in pain, enduring years in a wheelchair, hours of morphine treatment, and countless surgeries. Four years ago he was offered a metal hip replacement, which he accepted on the grounds that his doctors let him film the operation and keep the old hip. When he got home he cooked the flesh and ate it with some potato gratin and a glass of wine, all in the name of art.
