Father of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Appears to Have Posted Another Eyebrow-Raising Tweet


"Ten years in Guantanamo..."

The father of released Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl appeared to send out a tweet Sunday afternoon suggesting support for the release of several Guantanamo Bay prisoners.

Robert Bergdahl tweeted a 2012 video report by the Guardian detailing how five Tunisians are being held at the controversial detention camp.

"Ten years in Guantanamo: Tunisian families hope for loved ones' release," the tweet said.

In another instance, Bergdahl appeared to have retweeted a Taliban representative linking to a news article detailing how the militant Islamist group stormed a base and killed “as many as 25 US cowardly troops.”

On Sunday, Bergdahl said he follows on Twitter “a bunch of jihadis” because they are “great sources of information.”

“Direct communications is the key to resolving conflict,” he added in his tweet.

Bergdhal had stoked controversy earlier this week when it was discovered that he had appeared to tweet that he was "still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners."

That particular tweet was later deleted, but not before it was captured and posted online where it was widely circulated.

This post has been updated to include more information.
