U.S. Soldier Held Captive by Taliban

By  | 

There's new video, just released, that shows the U.S. soldier still being held hostage by Taliban forces in Afghanistan.

The soldier appears to be okay at this point. But, military investigators are still pouring over the video, trying to find clues about where Bowe Bergdahl is and how to get him home.

In the 28 minute video that was released on the Taliban's website, the 23 year old soldier is seen talking about how he was captured. He says he was lagging behind while on patrol, but the U.S. Military says that information is under investigation.

"I have a very, very good family that I love back home in America and I miss them everyday that I am gone, " says PFC Bowe Bergdahl.

The U.S. Military says its against international law to use a captured soldier as propaganda. So it will not be negotiating for his release.

Bergdahl, who is from central Idaho, has been held by the Taliban for the last two weeks.

The Taliban has not set any conditions for the soldier's release.
