(Washington, DC) Several of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl`s former platoon mates say his planned "whistleblower" defense doesn`t hold any water.  Retired Sergeant Evan Buetow tells CNN Bergdahl could have waited a few hours to report any complaints because the team was getting ready to head back to base. Another ex-teammate says it makes no sense for Bergdahl to want to walk back to base in 2009 because of how dangerous the area was.  He was captured and held by the Taliban until last year.  Bergdahl`s lawyer says he had no plans to desert and was going to bring disturbing circumstances to the attention of the nearest general officer.
