Soldier allegedly held in Afghanistan is 23-year-old Idahoan
WASHINGTON (AP) – The Pentagon has identified the American soldier who went missing June 30 from his base in eastern Afghanistan and was later confirmed to have been captured.
The Defense Department said in a statement Sunday that the soldier is Pfc. Bowe R. Bergdahl, 23, of Ketchum, Idaho. The statement also says his status is now classified as missing-captured, rather than whereabouts unknown.
In a video posted online by the Taliban on Saturday, he’s heard saying he’s "scared I won’t be able to go home."
Before the Pentagon released Bergdahl’s identity, two U.S. defense officials confirmed to The Associated Press that the man in the 28-minute video was the captured soldier.
The military said on July 2 that a U.S. soldier had disappeared after walking off his base in eastern Afghanistan with three Afghan counterparts and was believed to have been taken prisoner.
—————————————————————– Initial reports from the MSM are almost always off mark, but this smells fishy no less. Reminds me of that treasonous lying whore Jill Carroll, who working with the insurgency tried to sell the American public (and the rest of the world) anti-Iraq war propaganda videos. Of course, Carroll was always anti-American and went to Iraq with the sole purpose of working with the insurgency. This Soldier may have just seriously fucked-up (lured by sex–male or female, drugs, or alcohol–or all three) and is now an unwilling propaganda pawn. The anti-U.S. military MSM will do everything in their power to make sure that this Soldier literally loses his head.
