U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan met with veterans June 13 in Little Falls and told them he received a classified brief where he was given information convincing him no U.S. soldiers were killed in attempts to rescue U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. This clashes with reports from former U.S. Army soldiers, who served with Bergdahl. First, when did the U.S. policy of negotiating with terrorists change? As a former U.S. service member I strongly believe in never leaving a man behind.
