The father of a U.S. soldier captured in Afghanistan nearly two years ago made his first public appeal for his son's release Friday, empathizing with his captors but saying Spc. Bowe Bergdahl "is being exploited."​
Robert Bergdahl, who lives in Hailey, Idaho, released a YouTube video recording to address the Taliban and the Haqqani network, an ally of the Taliban that has an extensive presence along the Afghan-Pakistan border. It, too, has fought U.S. forces.​

Not Afghanistan
Exploited?

I feel bad for the father. He raised a d-bag kid and is paying for it. I hope we find his son just so the dad can beat his ass.

Why is he releasing the video now? He would have been much better off in 3-6 months from now not that I would hold my breath regardless.
