Gen stan McChrystalThe top American general who was in command of forces in Afghanistan at the time Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was captured says we shouldn't judge the soldier just yet, telling Yahoo News unequivocally that we do not leave Americans behind.

“We did a huge number of operations to try to stop the Taliban from being able to move him across the border into Pakistan,” said Gen. Stanley McChrystal in a Yahoo News interview. “And we made a great effort and put a lot of people at risk in doing that, but that’s what you should do. That’s what soldiers do for each other.”

The now-retired four-star Army general commanded all NATO troops in Afghanistan at the time of Bergdahl's disappearance in 2009.

“We’re going to have to wait and talk to Sgt. Bergdahl now and get his side of the story,” he said. “One of the great things about America is we should not judge until we know the facts. And after we know the facts, then we should make a mature judgment on how we should handle it."
