U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a "mujahid," or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News.
The reports indicate that Bergdahl's relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, "he became much more of an accepted fellow" than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a gun at times.
The documents show that Bergdahl at one point escaped his captors for five days and was kept, upon his re-capture, in a metal cage, like an animal.

What does Afghanistan President Karzai have to say about the 5 Taliban prisoners released??
He was friends with at least one of them from what I’ve read.
He refused to meet with him. That’s all I know. Of course, I’m no fan of Karzai either.
If Karzai likes this exchange 5:1, let’s give him all our remaining prisoners and immediately withdraw every American asset from that hell-hole.
OK, so, maybe it was. That doesn’t sound like “honor and distiction”, though.
I think John McCain (whatever you think of his politics) still has aches and pains from Hanoi Hilton Syndrome.
so a constructed jail cell has turned into a ‘steel cage’ ‘like an animal’. Are they trying to spin the sympathy or what?
Not only that, but where did dirt-poor Afghans get the steel to construct a cage?
