Several readers have sent us a link to the story that the US has “proof of life” of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the fellow being held as a prisoner of war by the Haqqani terrorist network, supposedly in Pakistan, according to US intelligence folks;
The video — which was on a thumb drive intercepted by the United States last week — shows a frail, shaky Bergdahl making a reference to the recent death of South African leader Nelson Mandela, the officials said.
Although the Taliban has offered to release Bergdahl in exchange for five Taliban prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay, U.S. military officials told NBC News they believe he is being held hostage by the Haqqani network in neighboring Pakistan.
Bergdahl disappeared when he reportedly walked away from a U.S. military base in eastern Afghanistan in June 2009, carrying only a compass and a bottle of water.
I’ve heard rumors about the circumstances under which he left, but whatever he did, he doesn’t deserve to be treated the way he has by those goat ropers, nor should his punishment be beheading. He just needs to be returned to the US. It should be one of this administration’s priorities. Not getting Bergdahl back before the troops leave Afghanistan would be shameful.
