Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has declined to speak to his family after five years in harsh captivity that included being held in a cage after one attempted escape, according to a U.S. official familiar with the Army soldier's recovery.
Doctors treating Sgt. Bergdahl at a U.S. military hospital in Germany are moving slowly because of the swirling controversy over the soldier's release, the U.S. official said.
While he spent five years in captivity after being captured by Afghan insurgents in 2009, Sgt. Bergdahl doesn't yet want to talk to his family on the phone, the official said. Details of Sgt. Bergdahl's captivity were earlier reported over the weekend by the New York Times. NYT -0.13%
Sgt. Bergdahl has likely been shielded from most of the backlash his release has generated in the U.S. Some former platoon soldiers have accused him of deserting his post, and lawmakers from both parties have questioned the decision to trade America's lone prisoner of war in Afghanistan for five Taliban officials held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Huh?? Bowe doesn’t even want to talk to “Goatboy”??
I hope Snowden is working on this. The Gov said his parents were being watched.
Uh...”Some former platoon soldiers have accused... “???
I have yet to hear ONE who has not “accused him”
Let the spin begin
It is just “narrative”. “They” (official u.s. officials speaking on the condition of anonymity from the lamestream) will polish their turd and make it look like he thinks daddy is too extreme, he’s just a good soldier and cannot support his dad’s views even in lieu of “what happened to him” (glossing over he CHOSE it). Later down the line, they will reunite at an obama beer summit or something to “cool things down” or something along those lines.
If he did call them, what language would he use, supposedly he forgot his english....bet it is hard to communicate in the hospital
He’s being programmed and told what to say would be my guess.
If it was the other way around I could understand. . . .
This is pathetic.
The left is losing it.
What’s next. He realized he/she was trangendered after the his/her valiant battle to save their platoon.
And he was abused as a child yet to be played. Tune in next week.
Quoted in the article, the mayor of his hometown uses the claimed death threat against Bergdahl to launch a political tirade against “hate” and “polarization.”
It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if the death threat is a hoax from the left for agitprop purposes.
even Bergdahl is embarrassed of these two dopes
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has declined to speak to his family after five years in harsh captivity
I’d have asked for my Mom first thing...
She would have been in Germany to meet me...
I’m sure our govt flew the parents there to where the hospital is...
His old man is crazier than he is.
You mean “Ole Bob”?
He can’t speak to anyone until the writers finish the script.
This is pathetic.
His American Family or Jihadi Family?
I’m getting so confused by all this....
