A video has been posted on the website TheUnjustMedia.com purportedly showing that soldier Robert Bergdahl, who was captured in Afghanistan last June, is still alive.
In the video Bergdahl has a beard. Towards the end of it, he does exercises to prove that he's still physically fit.
During the video, Bergdahl pleads to be released, not to his captors but to what appears to be the US government, although he doesn't address any specific person or organization...
"Get me to be released. This war isn't worth the waste of human life that it has cost both Afghanistan and US.
