Haqqani network releases new video of POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl

The last known video of U.S. Army Soldier Bowe Bergdahl was released by his captors more than three years ago, that is until today's news of a video made just last month.

U.S. military authorities, while happy to know Sgt. Bergdahl is still alive are concerned that his health is now severely compromised after five years of captivity by the Taliban affiliated Haqqani network.

Bergdahl, who has been promoted twice since he was taken captive in Afghanistan in June 2009, is a native of Idaho, and was just 23 at the time he was abducted.

The Taliban, and those aligned with their radical views, pumped out propaganda at the time of his capture indicating Bergdahl had wandered away from his unit in search of opium when he was captured.

The Army says Sgt. Bergdahl had just finished a guard shift at a combat outpost in southeastern Paktika Province the night of his abduction.

He is the only prisoner of war still held captive from the War in Afghanistan. It is believed he is being hidden somewhere in Pakistan.

Since the day Sgt. Bergdahl was captured the United States government has made his release from the Haqqani network a top priority.

News sources say they have not been allowed to view the latest video.
