Official: Bergdahl made two escape attempts

New details about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's five-year captivity.

The Real Reason the U.S. Didn’t Rescue Bowe Bergdahl

Bergdahl may have tried to escape his Taliban captors on at least two occasions, a United States official tells CNN.

Until the Army can talk to Bergdahl directly, they won't know for sure. But the official says "we do have reason to believe there were times he tried to escape."

    Well if he did attempt an escape on multiple occasions: those Talibans would have killed him. Those Mullahs and Mujahadeens dont play.
