Sgt Bowe Bergdahl: Handover from Taliban to U.S. Special Forces

While this video is still being reviewed by the Pentagon for authenticity (at the time of this post), a Pentagon spokesperson said it appears the video is indeed that of  the  handover of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from the Taliban to members of the United States Special Forces.  The video was originally obtained from a Jihadist website.  In the video, Bowe seems slightly confused about the event that is taking place.  One can see how much he has aged during the five years that he was held captive.  In the video, Special Forces members are seen to quickly accept the transfer of  Bowe and then hurry him to the waiting Black Hawk helicopter.  Before Bowe is released, one of the Taliban fighters warns him “Don’t come back to Afghanistan.”  The entire handover only takes seconds. The handover reportedly took place in Khost Province in Eastern Afghanistan near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.
