Release The Drones !
The U.S. military has obtained a new video showing Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, the only known American soldier in captivity, whose health appears to be diminishing, according to a senior U.S. defense official.
Bergdahl disappeared June 30, 2009, while based in eastern Afghanistan. The Taliban claimed his capture in a video released in mid-July that year, which showed the young soldier appearing downcast and frightened. In the latest video received by the military, Bergdahl was speaking and appeared "gaunt."
Bergdahl is believed to be held by the Taliban-linked Haqqani network in Pakistan. Last year, the Taliban offered a deal to free Bergdahl in exchange for five of their most senior operatives being held at Guatanamo Bay. The proposal was rejected by the Obama administration over a longstanding U.S. policy of not negotiating with terrorists.
On a personal note, I would make the towelheads a proposition that they release the prisoner or face immediate consequences, including the advice that if should any harm come to the soldier, then armed drones would begin eliminating any and all villages in the Eastern Pakistan mountains that shelter the Taliban with no regard as to who lives there. Enough of this shit !
