Was Bowe Bergdahl killed with his captor Sangeen Zadran?

US drone 'kills Haqqani commander Sangeen Zadran known as the captor of Bowe Bergdahl.There are many field commanders in Afghanistan, but turnover is high because many get killed or captured. The most prominent is or "was" Mullah Sangin, who is or "was" believed to be holding Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl a captured U.S. soldier and Zakim Shah the movement's shadow governor of Khost province. Inside the Haqqani network

 Taliban offered to free US soldier for Guantanamo prisoners: The Afghan Taliban are ready to free a U.S. army soldier held captive since 2009 in exchange for five of their senior operatives imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay as a conciliatory gesture, a senior spokesman for the group said Thursday. The offer follows this week's official opening of a Taliban political office in Doha, the capital of the Gulf state of Qatar.
This would be great! Remember when Bergdahl was first captured retired Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters an ex army intelligence officer I have yet to find any proof of combat duty is willing to condemn PFC Bergdahl for desertion. He said if Bergdahl betrayed his fellow soldiers by deserting while in Afghanistan that he would not mind if the Taliban killed him and save the US time and money. I know Peters is a Faux news pundit but I refuse to believe him or anyone there will condemn a fellow American to serve their Political purpose.

I feel for this man, this is Afghanistan not the US. Do you remember the nonsensical rhetoric coming from Fox news? Fox News Contributor Ralph Peters: Taliban Should Kill Captured US

Bergdahl was captured June 30th 2009 under what is still unknown circumstances. Two US officials said Bergdahl appears to have just wandered off his post unarmed.

First off it's hard to say what PTSD will do to a soldier. What seems rational to you and I may not be so for those suffering from it.

Second why not just implant a tracking device on the five prisoners held at Gitmo and let them go. We could pick them up later or better yet get more info on the organization.

Personally I think we put the wrong people in Gitmo after 9/11 and yes hearts should go out to this man. I do not know what I would have done in his situation. After being held hostage in a foreign country his confusion and fear must have been great.
Thanks Again for another well thought out piece.
