Taliban tells Bergdahl 'don't come back'

KABUL, Afghanistan - The U.S. soldier held by the Taliban for five years was given a warning as he was freed this weekend in Afghanistan.

As 28-year-old Bowe Bergdahl was about to be handed over to freedom, a member of the Taliban told him in Pashto, "Don't come back to Afghanistan."

And as other captors laughed, the man said, "You won't make it out alive next time."

The handover was recorded in a 17-minute video the Taliban distributed to the media.
