“It is important that the investigation be complete, and we are confident that Major General Dahl would not ask for more time if it wasn’t necessary. Haste makes waste,” said Eugene Fidell, a military law expert who lectures at Yale University. Fidell has said his client answered every question put to him openly and honestly though he could have refused to answer questions during an interview with Dahl that took place last Wednesday and Thursday at a military base in Texas. The Army sergeant from Hailey, Idaho was read his rights under military law, notifying him that he was a potential defendant in a criminal case, before questioning. Retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Addicott, a former senior legal adviser to U.S. Army Special Forces, told Reuters in a previous interview that Dahl has many options, including recommending administrative punishment up to a general court martial, a medical disability retirement or that Bergdahl leave the Army.
