Colbert Defends Bergdahl: 82 Percent of Americans Disillusioned with Afghanistan War

'It's a scandal some are calling Bergdghazi -- so far, it's just me, but it's going to catch on'

COLBERT: "This guy had grown disillusioned with the war in Afghanistan. And there's only one word for that -- 82% of Americans. Plus, should we be bringing this guy back when several of those who served with Bergdahl charged that soldiers died searching for him? And I agree with anyone who says best way to honor their sacrifice is to never complete their mission."
