    Whatever, how about Bergdahl for Bush.

    This is nothing less than a political tool used by the radical terrorist regime. The outcome left to the imagination.

    I'm not upset with the Taliban showing the video of the US soldier. If they hadn't of we would never have known about it. Our country loves to keep secrets from us. The hell that boy and his family are going thru. I suggest that a trade is made – Bergdahl for Cheney. Wait a minute Bergdahl's life is worth more than that. How about Bergdahl for Hillary?

    I do not think these videos should be shown, as they may encourage more captures of soldiers for politcal exploitation. It is just positive reinforcement for the use of a psychological tactic.

    I think it would be sufficient to say that there is a video and the soldier comments that he is scared, and leave it at that. Not showing it does not negate the soldiers suffering or contribution, I feel it prevents exploitation of the soldier.

    We should all pray for the safe return of this brave young man.
