An unverified photo posted on a Twitter account associated with terror groups purportedly shows Army Sgt. Bowe Berdahl with a top terror group commander while he was being held in captivity.
Senior U.S. Army officials say Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has not yet been interviewed by the two-star general appointed last week to investigate the matter.
The Army says it has begun an investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the disappearance and capture of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in Afghanistan on June 30, 2009.
Despite securing the release of five top detainees from the prison at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, there are few indications that the Taliban will head into peace talks with the Afghan government any time soon.
Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant who has been recovering in Germany after five years as a Taliban captive, returned to the United States early Friday.
Pentagon says Bergdahl has left Germany, will arrive at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, early Friday morning.
In Facebook posts written before he vanished from his military base in Afghanistan, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl spoke of his frustration with the world and his desire to change the status quo.
The Obama administration only finalized the exchange of the last remaining U.S. prisoner of war in Afghanistan for five Taliban detainees at Guantanamo a day before the swap, a top Democratic lawmaker said Tuesday.
The House Armed Services Committee will investigate the Obama administration’s swap of an American prisoner held for five years for five Taliban leaders that caused a political firestorm over the lack of congressional notification and fears the high-level Taliban could return to the Afghanistan battlefield.
Five U.S. service members and one Afghan were killed in fighting in southern Afghanistan on Monday in what could have been a mistaken bombing by their own comrades.
