Idahoan’s Unlikely Journey to Life as a Taliban Prisoner
-- New York Times
ELISABETH BUMILLER reports, "The story of Sergeant Bergdahl, 26, America’s only known current prisoner of war, is one of the strangest and now most consequential mysteries in the 10-year involvement of the United States in Afghanistan. He was captured under still unclear circumstances in June 2009 by insurgents in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan, only two months after he arrived on the battlefield, and is now believed to be held, alive and relatively well, by the militant Haqqani network across the border in the tribal area of Pakistan’s northwest frontier."Unrelated Kindle Deal on this Memorial Day:
