The deaths of six U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan are being tied, directly or indirectly, to the search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after he went missing and was captured by the Taliban in 2009, former unit members allege. Staff Sgt. Clayton Patrick Bowen, seen here, was killed on August 18, 2009. A U.S. official told CNN in June that Pentagon and Army officials have looked at the claims, and "right now there is no evidence to back that up." u.s. army
