Pentagon Dedicated to Bergdahl’s Return ??

If the Pentagon was wanting to get Afghanistan POW Bowe Bergdahl home, why has it taken over three years? They could have traded 10 Taliban POWs we have for him and could have done it long ago. President Obama could have ordered it. Secretary of State Clinton could have ordered it. No one did make the decision to bring him home so he is still held captive by the Taliban (Haqquani) in Pakistan.

It is inexcusable to abandon a live American POW for that long. There is no excuse or reason for not negotiating for his freedom. How long would the President's or Secretary of State's child have been captured till they would be negotiated for and their freedom secured? The same standard should apply to any American POW, regardless of their social /economic background.


Pentagon Dedicated to Bergdahl’s Return, Spokesman Says

By Karen Parrish American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Oct. 4, 2012 – The safe return of the only U.S. service member known to be in Taliban captivity remains a top Defense Department priority, Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said today.

Army Sgt. Bowe R. Bergdahl is someone Pentagon leaders “remember every day,” Little told reporters at a news conference.

“We are taking steps on a regular basis to try to determine precisely where he is, and to secure his freedom,” he added.

Reconciliation between the Taliban and the Afghan government remains an Afghan-led process, Little said in response to a reporter’s question, and is not linked to the department’s efforts to secure Bergdahl’s release.

“We are strongly dedicated to getting Bowe Bergdahl home to his family in Idaho,” he said. “We want to see that happen as quickly as possible. … We never forget those who remain in the custody of those who should not be holding our soldiers.”

Bergdahl, 26, from Hailey, Idaho, has been missing since June 30, 2009, when his unit in Afghanistan noted his absence from roll call. He is assigned to 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based at Fort Richardson, Alaska.
