Bowe Bergdahl questioning set for Wednesday in San Antonio

Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, a two-star general, has been appointed to investigate the 28-year-old Army sergeant’s disappearance that led to his five years in captivity at the hands of the Taliban.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is set to be formally questioned about his 2009 disappearance in Afghanistan by an Army investigator on Wednesday at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Tex.

Bergdahl’s attorney Eugene Fidell will be meeting with Bergdahl tomorrow to prepare and will be “learning as much as I can,” he told the Daily News.

The Army launched an AR 15-6 investigation — a fact-gathering probe — into Bergdahl’s case shortly after he was released from captivity this May after spending five years as a prisoner of the Taliban.

Though hailed a hero by the White House, many questioned if Bergdahl had deserted his post in Afghanistan.

Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, a two-star general who is not a law enforcement officer, was appointed to investigate the circumstances leading up to Bergdahl’s captivity and he has already met for an informal introductory meeting with Bergdahl.

Dahl has a judge advocate general lawyer who will be advising him and will likely attend the Wednesday meeting.

Bergdahl’s lawyer will also be present Wednesday, along with an Army lawyer serving on Bergdahl’s behalf.

Bergdahl will be read his rights against self-incrimination. The 28-year-old is expected to answer Dahl’s questions, but Bergdahl’s attorney may halt the questioning at any time, Greg Rinckey, a former JAG officer who now heads the military practice at Tully Rinckey law firm in D.C., told the Daily News.
