The Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI) saw a tweet a Taliban devotee showing Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl posing with a senior member of the Haqqani network in Afghanistan.
MEMRI said the Twitter account @khorasan313, which is associated with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, tweeted the photo Wednesday of a happy Bergdahl posed with Taliban Commander Badruddin Haqqani.

Haqqani, who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in August 2012, was the son of Haqqani network head Jalaluddin Haqqani.
