Taliban video purportedly shows captured U.S. soldier

The Taliban has released a new video that purportedly shows an American soldier captured in Afghanistan last summer.

Pfc. Bowe Robert Bergdahl, 23, disappeared from his combat outpost in southeastern Paktika province sometime after he finished his guard duty shift on the night of June 29.

The identity of the man in the latest video has not yet been confirmed. But the man, who is wearing U.S. Army combat fatigues stripped of the name tag and rank, identifies himself as Bergdahl.
