A military judge expressed skepticism Monday that letters destroyed by a top general are relevant to the prosecution of Bowe Bergdahl on charges related to his leaving his post in Afghanistan.Bergdahl's attorneys argue that Gen. Robert B. Abrams faced improper conflicts when he referred Bergdahl for a general court-martial rather than a lower-level prosecution. Abrams has acknowledged destroying around 100 letters that were largely sent by the general public regarding the Bergdahl case. The destruction of the letters is one of several reasons why the defense says Abrams should be disqualified from the case. Nance said it was "unrealistic" to expect that Abrams would have been insulated from all public comment about the case.
