(Dec. 8) -- A new video containing footage of the only American soldier held captive by the Taliban for almost 18 months has been released on the Internet.
Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl of Ketchum, Idaho, was 23 when he disappeared from his combat outpost in Afghanistan's southeastern Paktika province and was last seen in a video released in April.
Images from the new footage, released Tuesday, show the soldier wearing an open-necked tan shirt, with a wound just below his left eye. Previous videos showed Bergdahl with a beard, but he appears clean-shaven with tightly cropped hair in the latest release. In August, Taliban commander Haji Nadeem had claimed the soldier had converted to Islam and was now training insurgents.

May God bless and protect this soldier!
From your lips ...
As a father of a son in the infantry, I can’t imagine what agony his parents are going through. While I know that finding and rescuing him is a number one priority of the Army, it makes me ill thinking of the torture this soldier and his family are going through.
The feelings I have right now toward the bastards holding him are not very Christian, and I hope that when the Special Forces troops find him, they exert a little pay back on anyone guarding him.
My prayers are going up right now for the soldier and his family.
“My prayers are going up right now for the soldier and his family.”
As are mine. And for your son and yours.
I pray for this soldier’s safe return home. This story just kills me.
“I pray for this soldiers safe return home. This story just kills me.”
The lib press silence on this is dastardly.
Looks like a replay of the Bobby Garwood story—eh?How long
will it be until the stories from the field come in saying he is leading the Taliban in combat? How long until a secret message come s -long after the US Government declares him KIA?
How long before he is repatriated to face military court-Martial?Only the name has been changed...
