There’s not been a lot of news out there on the captured U.S. soldier in Afghanistan, Pfc Bowe Bergdahl since the first video after his capture was released by the Taliban way back in July.
That is, other than the despicable right wing neocon attempts to denigrate Pfc Bergdahl.
Today, however, comes news that a new video of Bergdahl might be released by the Taliban:
SITE Intelligence Group, a U.S.-based terrorist tracking organization, said Wednesday that al-Imara Media Productions, the Afghan Taliban’s media arm, was set to release a video titled “One of Their People Testified.”
The SITE report said “they do not name the American captive, but it seems to reference Bowe Bergdahl.”
“We are very anxious to see it and to see that he is doing well,” said Hailey Police Chief Jeff Gunter, a close friend of the Bergdahl family. “Everyone is still holding tight and praying and standing by Bowe. This ignites it all again.”
In late November, the first news in more than four months regarding Bowe Bergdahl came in the form of e-mails to two U.S Army doctors in New Jersey. The messages, which the doctors said came from Afghan village leaders and doctors, said Bergdahl was “alive and doing well.”
On Wednesday, the news came from SITE that a video of Bergdahl was forthcoming. When and how the video will be shown remains unknown.
Let’s hope renewed prayers for Bergdahl’s safety are not marred once again by those with an agenda if, in fact, a video is released.
