Bowe Bergdahl Reportedly Declines to Speak with His Family

According to one U.S. official. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has declined to speak with his family by phone after five years in the captivity of Taliban forces.

The report, which came Sunday from Wall Street Journal, also quotes the unnamed official as saying that doctors at a U.S. military hospital in Germany are treating Bergdahl slowly due to the firestorm of controversy surrounding his name stateside.

More from the WSJ:

While he spent five years in captivity after being captured by Afghan insurgents in 2009, Sgt. Bergdahl doesn’t yet want to talk to his family on the phone, the official said.

[…]Doctors say that Sgt. Bergdahl’s physical health continues to slowly improve. The psychological process is likely to be more difficult.

During his time in captivity, Sgt. Bergdahl said that he was kept in a cage after one attempted escape, the official said.
