The Taliban have released a video of a man identified as an American soldier captured in Afghanistan last June, showing him pleading for his release and return home.
In the video, Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl says he wants to go home and says the war in Afghanistan is not worth the number of lives that have been lost or wasted in prison.
The seven-minute video of Bergdahl shows him sporting a beard and doing a few push-ups to demonstrate he's in good physical condition. There was no way to verify when the footage was taken. Pentagon officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
