For better then a week now there have been reports that the Taliban were going to release a video of Pfc Bergdahl and than just silence till this morning.
This is just starting to hit the many outlets in many places, the AP seems to have released the video a few hours ago and others are picking up the story now as I refresh google search!
The Taliban released Friday a video purporting to show a U.S. soldier who was captured more than five months ago in eastern Afghanistan. (Dec. 25)
Pfc Bergdahl is the only known American captive of the Taliban
The Taliban has released a video purporting to show US soldier Bowe Robert Bergdahl who was captured in Afghanistan almost six months ago.
The video has not been verified, but shows a man wearing sunglasses and a US military-style helmet and uniform.
He appears healthy and speaks calmly and clearly, and does not appear to be under duress, the AP news agency said…>>>>>
The following one just was posted by the LA Times a few minutes ago.
The Taliban movement today released a video that it said showed Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, a U.S. soldier captured nearly six months ago in Afghanistan.
The American military had no immediate comment on the video’s authenticity.
Bergdahl, a member of a unit based in Fort Richardson, Alaska, is the only U.S. service member known to have been seized by insurgents during the Afghan conflict, which is now in its ninth year.
He vanished June 30 from his base in Paktika province, bordering Pakistan, and military authorities acknowledged at the time that he appeared to have walked away from his post for unknown reasons….>>>>>
The following clip is one just posted and mixed in with a few other reports about the snow storm etc., haven’t seen another yet calling for a swap so not sure how accurate unless others start updating.
The Taliban is renewing its demand for a release of prisoners in exchange for Pfc. Bowe (boh) Bergdahl. The airborne infantryman was captured by the Taliban in eastern Afghanistan in June. The Taliban has released a new video that it claims shows Bergdahl. In it the Idaho native gives personal information before delivering a lengthy criticism of the U.S. war in Afghanistan.
