As they stood with Obama in the Rose Garden hours after their son's release, Bob Bergdahl, who grew a long, thick beard to honor his son, said Bowe Bergdahl was having trouble speaking English after his rescue. The elder Bergdahl had worked to learn Pashto, the language spoken by his son's captors, and delivered him a message in that language.

This is all propaganda, if you have seen his tweets they either has brainwashed him or he has sold his soul for returning son maybe he is blackmailed to be a spokesperson for Islam. Well Obama seems to have a lot of respect for the countries involved.

You realise that the paper you link to is a notorious anti-Islamic rag forged and sold in the tabloid gutter for the less critically minded of folk in the UK. The editor is known for truth bending. The Daily 'Fail' is a less than creditable news source and akin to the nonsense Fox spouts in the States.
The 24-year-old has converted to Islam and now has the Muslim name Abdullah, one of his captors told The Sunday Times. Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk... 2g
On June 27, 2009, according to Rolling Stone, Bowe sent a final e-mail to his parents: "The future is too good to waste on lies. And life is way too short to care for the damnation of others, as well as to spend it helping fools with their ideas that are wrong. I have seen their ideas and I am ashamed to even be american. The horror of the self-righteous arrogance that they thrive in. It is all revolting."
His email went on to describe his disillusionment in the army: "In the US army you are cut down for being honest... but if you are a conceited brown nosing # bag you will be allowed to do what ever you want, and you will be handed your higher rank... The system is wrong. I am ashamed to be an american. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools...I am sorry for everything here. These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid, that they have no idea how to live. We don't even care when we hear each other talk about running their children down in the dirt streets with our armored trucks... We make fun of them in front of their faces, and laugh at them for not understanding we are insulting them...I am sorry for everything. The horror that is america is disgusting...There are a few more boxes coming to you guys. Feel free to open them, and use them."
