Skip to comments.Bergdahl held in solitary confinement for 2 years, sources say (Fax me a crying towel)

American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, while held prisoner in Afghanistan, was locked in solitary confinement for two straight years and did not see another human face for that entire time, senior military sources with knowledge of his "reintegration process" told Fox News.
Officials said Bergdahl, during that period, only talked to his captors through the wall of a six-foot-by-six-foot metal box, in which he was kept.
The box was just big enough for him to stand up straight and stretch his arms. If he was ever taken out of the box, Bergdahl was apparently hooded. Bergdahl told officials that this treatment started immediately after he attempted to escape captivity.
"His mental and physical state match this description -- and we believe him from what we see," one official told Fox News....

Unfortunately, you can’t believe a word that these a-holes say. More likely, the opposite is true.
What did he expect? A ballet bar and a troop of Hailey’s lightest ballerinas to lift? (Refers to a woman who said that in the ballet school he attended, the girls enjoyed their pas a deux with him.)
The BIG issue here isn't Bergdahl, it's Obama's releasing five crazed lunatic officials who have the capacity to mobilize a whole bunch of crazies who would love nothing more than destroy America and American lives.
Obama has given aid and comfort to our sworn enemies. THAT is the issue here.
I would believe this article over anything this administration would say. Ever.
Well.... that and about $6 million.
Every other American soldier expected his head to be on a pike if he was in the hands of the Taliban. Whining about solitary confinement went you purposively put yourself in harms way is outside my ability to commiserate.
First, solitary confinement without natural light destroys all sense of time. Without outside corroboration, two months or two years are indistinguishable.
There is little reason to believe this account.
Second, there is little chance he would be sane enough after two full years in those conditions to discuss anything coherently.
Third, I doubt any Taliban command could afford to stay put for two years anywhere in Afghanistan.
His commander Hagel called him a hero at the congressional hearings
Why would the Taliban go to ANY trouble keeping Bergdahl?
In the faint hopes that he might be useful someday?
Not like they were showing nightly tapes of him on the news.
I think that they would have killed him after a very short period of time. Unless they found him "useful" in some way. And not as propaganda.
But did he have a view of the mountains that he wished for?
What about the poor Afghan farmers and journalists who were just trying to show some hospitality to Bergdahl? They play soccer with him. They go target shooting with him. They let him have the prettiest goats. He was teaching them ballet and all the verses to I KISSED A GOAT. Then he wants to go? Imagine the depression going through that area. The ransom money we paid will probably only cheer them up a little bit.
And Bergdahl is pecuniarily liable for that ransom money. That should keep the dumbass broke for forever.
I,m buying this like I.m buying he can’t speak ENGLISH ANYMORE!!!!
Agree. Any infidel is a liability to them and would be beheaded within the week. They don’t keep nasty infidels for 5 years. They do feed and shelter fellow islamic jihadists for years.
It wasn’t solitary confinement — it’s just that no one wanted to be associated with him.
We do not know that this is true. We only have the word of the deserter Bergdahl, and the word of our sworn enemies in Afghanistan, for these assertions.
For all we know, Bergdahl could have been living it up with young goats and Dancing Boys.
To me, Bergdahl is as queer as a three-dollar bill. If he was in “solitary”, I bet he got conjugal visits every night from big hairy Arab men.
Can Bergdahl sit down yet?
