Hope For Bowe Bergdahl And His Family?

The Taliban is publicly expressing interest in negotiating with Washington.  According to the Washington Post, those talks could involve captured Idaho soldier Bowe Bergdahl and it could lead to a possible prisoner exchange deal.

There’s no word yet from the Pentagon but the announcement marked a major departure for a militant group that had long said it would not negotiate while foreign troops remained in Afghanistan.  One Taliban motivation for negotiating with Washington involves brokering the release of Taliban leaders detained in the prison facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  An Afghan official suggested to the Washington Post that the Taliban might use captured U.S. soldier, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, as a bargaining chip. The last time Idaho received news on Bergdahl was last month when the Daily Beast reported that he tried to escape from his captors early in the fall. Bowe Bergdahl, a 25-year-old Army sergeant from Hailey, was taken prisoner June 30, 2009 in Afghanistan.
