Yesterday marked the three year anniversary since U.S. Army PFC Bowe Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban in Paktika Province, Afghanistan. It is believed that he has since been moved to Pakistan.
Here is a Youtube clip of Bowe’s father making an appeal to the Pakistani government to help free Bowe. He is very respectful and cordial in this video.
"To the nation of Pakistan, our family would wish to convey our passionate respect. We have watched the violence of war, earthquake, violent floods, and crop failures devastate your lives — all while our son has been in captivity. We have watched your suffering through the presence of our son… We have wept.. let God show his magnificence, his mercy, that his peace may come upon the people of Pakistan… We ask that your nation diligently help our son be freed from his captivity." – Bowe’s father.
To mark the three year anniversary, hundreds "worked out" as can be seen from the video below.
Angie Baldwin, a veteran herself, organized an event to raise money and awareness, called ‘Bring Bowe Home’.
"We know that we’re going to bring him home, and we hope that this will bring him home," said Baldwin. "We don’t want him to be forgotten."
The day started with members of the Boise Valley POW-MIA riders roaring into the parking lot at Expo Idaho.
"We recognize our brother that’s still waiting to come home, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl," said Terry Regelin, of the Boise Valley POW-MIA. "We remember those we depended on in battle, who depend on us to bring them home."
There are some that believe he may have deserted his post which had eventually led to his capture.
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) told Fox News that Bergdahl is “an apparent deserter,” and intimates that he wouldn’t feel badly if the Taliban killed Bergdahl. At the end of the segment he does say that we should wait until all the facts come in to pass judgement…
Michelle Malkin reports on three stories that report badly on Bowe.
He is a US Citizen and a US soldier no matter what and deserves to be set free. And if he did end up leaving his post, we can deal with those things once he is on US soil and out of harm’s way.
