Letter: Bring this POW home
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, American POW, captured June 30, 2009, turned 28 on March 28. American negotiators have been working on his release for the past few years and have been blocked twice by the Karzai government. “Proof of life” videos have been received by the family. Only one fact is needed to be discussed. This American soldier needs to be returned to his family and country.
Faith, trust, truth, responsibility and accountability are at stake here, and a failure here is a failure of this administration and every member of this Congress. All the cover statements such as “Everything that can be done is being done,” “This is a No. 1 priority” and “We support our troops” won’t cover the failure to bring home this American POW!
Happy birthday, Sgt. Bergdahl. I doubt it, but his family can be sure that there are those who continue to work and write, call and speak to representatives every opportunity they get to remind them of their responsibility and the fact that they would have to live with any such failure.
