Exchange video release

2 Jun, 2014

The Taliban release a video that documents the release of Bowe to U.S. forces. Taliban members provide commentary on the exchange. The commentator calls it a “historical achievement.” He also notes that the Taliban were disappointed with how the Americans rushed through the procedure. Two Americans shake their hands, however it is customary in Afghanistan to also provide greetings and a friendly chat. The Taliban are also offended at the way one of the soldiers pushes his left-hand forward for shaking. The commentary ends with words for Bergdahl to not come back to Afghanistan.
