The Taliban has released a video purporting to show Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl being handed over to American custody. ---
The 17-minute video released Wednesday shows a clean-shaven Bergdahl, dressed in white, sitting in a silver pick-up truck prior to his release.
The video was sent to NBC News by a known Taliban spokesperson. It was not immediately possible to independently verify the video's authenticity.
As a helicopter comes in for a landing, Bergdahl is brought out of the truck to wait, standing and clutching a plastic bag. Armed men dot the hillside above him.
Bergdahl is then led by two men, a white flag waving, to greet three men in what appear to be civilian clothes.

He look comfy and right at home ... JERK!
They LIED to us saying he was looking like he was losing weight. That was 3 or 4 years ago.
He’s a dough boy!!
I’ll bet this did not want to leave. I bet they forced him to get the 5 terrorists.
Unclean but tasty swine once upon your lips, forever on your hips.
He was not losing weight and his health not deteriorating:
Video of hand off 1/10 down page
Didn’t take all that long.
What do you want to bet he didm;t want to come back to this horrible United States of America.
He probably offered himself as a sacrifice to Allah in return for springing the Gitmo Five. Nothing like commitment to a cause!
What you just brought up is a good point. I thought the same. Bo comes from a family that holds most aspects of American life in a different regard than the majority. I get the impression that as Calvinists, their social activism becomes a form of offering to their privately known Deity. Sort of like Quakers with an attitiude. Joan Baez comes from Quakers.
I think Bo was upset because “his work” was not yet done. Who knows? Maybe the Dad has been making suggestions on what the Afghans should do to make the Americans a little less comfortable on their land. Bo is going to be a tangled up, emotional mess for a long time, if not permanently.
You will know if the family is about to go off the deep end, if the Mom suddenly decides to separate or divorce the dad. Why divorce after you POW son finally returns home? She might, if Mr. Bergdahl becomes too obsessive in his efforts to mold his son into some imaginary super hero for unsaid causes. Bergdahl wants books and movie rights too.
Where is the guy with failing health?
Obama sycophants: “You know what they say, the camera adds 50 pounds.”
How long before he returns to Afghanistan to be with his comrades?
Based on initial reports the guy should have been on a gurney....
” We saw an opportunity, and we were concerned about Bergdahls health”
Play on words by The Odinga Administration. I suspect his issue is mental health.
