Reid’s Suggestion that Bergdahl Was at Death’s Door Turns Out to be Completely False
New reports from a private intelligence company suggest that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was healthy enough to play soccer and participate in target practice while being held prisoner by the Taliban.
If that’s the case, why did Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggest to the Washington Post that Bergdahl had to be freed as soon as possible, because his life was in some sort of imminent danger?
Fox News obtained secret documents based on an eyewitness account of at least part of Bergdahl’s five-year captivity that began when he reportedly walked off his base in June 2009.
The documents show that Bergdahl’s relationship with his captors changed over time. He at one time was held in a cage after being recaptured after he had escaped. But at other times he had a seemingly friendly relationship with his captors, playing soccer and frequently using the work “salaam” – Arabic for “peace.”
He also participated in target practice with his captors and was allowed to carry a gun, according to the reports.
The documents were generated by the Eclipse Group, Fox reports. Eclipse is a private intelligence agency founded for former CIA officer Duane “Dewey” Clarridge.
