Bergdahl Photo With Taliban Leader Emerges

July 12, 2014

Sgt Bowe Bergdahl during his captivity posed for what appears to be a friendly photograph with a Senior Haqqani network leader.

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.

Since the @khorasan313 account regularly tweets war atrocity photos of children, it may be shut down at some point, so here is a screenshot:

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