Posted on 06/04/2014 1:09:10 AM PDT by BunnySlippers
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.
Didn’t Chuck Hagel say he was in terrible health?
Clean shaven for purposes of erasing any evidence which would have indicated he had adopted the lifestyle of the Taliban?
Imperative to move quickly for Bergdahl’s health?
He looks like he’s been pounding Hostess cupcakes.
More lies from the most transparent administration ever.
Imperative to *impeach* quickly for the nation’s health.
“We believed that the information we had, the intelligence we had, was such that Sgt. Bergdahl’s safety and health were in jeopardy,” Mr. Hagel said. “In particular his health was deteriorating. It was our judgment that if we could find an opening and move very quickly, we needed to get him out of there, essentially to save his life,” he added.
“The first focus is on his health and getting the medical attention he needs,” Mr. Hagel said.
Every time I watch the video my impression is he is crying when he talks to the Taliban at the car.
As if he he is sad to see them go.
Freshly shaved head and face. Don’t the martyrs do that just before they go kaboom?
Telling that one of the crew patted him down before getting on the chopper.You don’t do that to a friendly.
An event tailor made for a Predator strike.
I was watching the vieo from a more recent post and seeing in the Muslim garb I was expecting him to start crying as he was sad to leave and didn’t want to go back to the country he resented. If they had a prayer rug out there I’m sure you would have seen him bow down and suck allah’s toes.
What do you wanna bet he will act as a sleeper cell and have his own Jihad against the US. Wait for it.
He looks like he is about to cry and not tears of joy, but of sadness that he is leaving the Taliban and Afghanistan, a place he calls HOME.
Concerned about his health in what way? Did Michelle Obama notice he was eating too many doughnuts and soda? He is a dough boy and doesn’t have the physical traits of someone that supposedly has cancer.
I never heard of any "Calvinist" (or any Christian, for that mattter) who says "Bism'Allah, alrahmen alraheem ameen."
Maybe they were Calvinists years ago, but I think this is MSM spin to cover up Islamist sympathy.
The Bergdahls are Presbyterians, and most Presbyterian denominations are WCC apostate. The WCC used to give money to national liberation, i.e., leftist guerilla groups and now support abortion, gay marriage, and the whole globalist agenda. They may give lip service to the Westminster Confession, but that is the extent of it.
