(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Taliban officials have indicated that they are willing to release POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, but are not sure which government officials to turn to for a deal.  This is according to a U.S. defense official who requested not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Bergdahl, a Hailey native, has been held captive in Afghanistan for nearly five years.  Numerous U.S. agencies and dozens of officials are working on bringing him home.  Critics of the effort say a lack of communication between the parties involved have hindered the process.

The White House and the Defense Department defend their work towards securing Bergdahl’s release.

    Hmmmm. I guess the Republicans in Congress weren’t aware of this open secret. It was kept from them, I guess.

    And Mark Richardson is crowing about how President Obama “violated the law” by keeping this a secret, when Richardson’s own website carried the news.
