Army: Berghdal Didn't Aid Taliban

    U.S. Army Private Bowe Bergdahl watches as one of his captors displays his identity tag to the camera at an unknown location in Afghanistan, July 19, 2009. The U.S. military denounced on Sunday the release of the video showing a soldier captured in Afghanistan, describing the images as Taliban propaganda that violated international law.

    There is no evidence that during the five years he was held captive that Sg.t Bowe Bergdahl helped the Taliban, reports the Wall Street Journal. Some former members of his platoon as well as some media outlets claimed that attacks increased on U.S. troops after he was captured and that he may have aided the enemy. However, an Army official says the investigators "have no reason to believe that he engaged in any misconduct." Bergdahl, who has not asked for a lawyer or been read his legal rights, has not actually been interviewed yet by the Army.
