Bowe Bergdahl Diagnosed With Schizotypal Personality Disorder


Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier held captive by the Taliban for nearly five years, was diagnosed with schizotypal personality disorder on his return to the United States, according to documents his defense team released.

The diagnosis was included in a document dump orchestrated by the defense, which has lobbied for the release of more information about Bergdahl to educate the public about his case.

The website, called the Bergdahl Docket, includes hundreds of pages of documents.

“The Bergdahl Docket is simply a repository for case documents. It will not include commentary and there will be no provision for posts or comments by third parties,” the site says. “We hope it will be useful to the public and the news media.”

Among the documents is a 371-page transcript of a major general’s wide-ranging interview with Bergdahl in which the soldier describes his motivation for leaving his post in Afghanistan in June 2009.

Bergdahl, 29, is facing a court-martial, charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
