New Video Of POW Bowe Bergdahl Released

A newly released Taliban video shows the only U.S. soldier held captive in the Afghan war being blindfolded and led away by an insurgent. It appears a portion of the same video was released months ago. The SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks militant websites, says the video released on Jihadist forums Wednesday shows Spc. Bowe Bergdahl standing next to Sangin Zadran, a senior official in the al-Qaida-linked Haqqani network in Paktika province. Sangin then blindfolds Bergdahl and leads him away. The release is the fifth since Bergdahl, who’s from Hailey, was captured in June 2009. The beginning portion,  with Bergdhal just standing beside Sangin,  was released in December. In that video Bergdhal told his family and friends that he was doing as well as could be expected.  Army spokesman Gary Tallman said officials are studying the video and agreed it appears old. There’s no word yet on if there is any significance between the timing of the death of Osama bin Ladin and the release of the latest picture.
