Taliban More Transparent on Bergdahl Than this Administration
Richard Engel reports the Taliban is giving the media much more information about the Bergdahl swap than the U.S. government. Engel says the U.S. government is updating journalists with written statements on the health of rescued POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
“The Taliban, however, have been very forthcoming with information,” Engel said on the Wednesday broadcast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
“We’re kind of dependent on press releases and whatever the White House and others decide to give us,” MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said. “This is tough to cover and to get the story.”
“We’ve actually been getting more information today from the Taliban than we have from spokespersons here at the hospital in Landstuhl,” Engel said.
