Bowe, the released Taliban prisoner has yet to speak to his parents. He spent 5 years speaking Pashtun and has forgotten how to speak English! If you were in a foreign country where no English was spoken could you forget the language?
You don't forget your first language like that. It's a bluff.
Unless he's suffered some sort of TBI but I doubt that
I've lived in a foreign country and only spoken Spanish long term. I had no problems speaking English to the customs man when I arrived in the Miami airport. I think Sgt. Bergdahl is putting on to avoid the inevitable.
When he got to the helicopter he allegedly wrote "sp?" for special forces...asking if that's who the guys were. Don't tell me he forgot English....he didn't.
I don't think he wanted to come back. His "inability" is probably just refusal.
While I did not not have direct experience, kanadajin3, a Canadian that has been living in Japan for a few years, has started to speak 'engrish' due to her constantly being around Japanese, so I think it's possible.
Ummmm. No. Especially if English is your first language.
I don't think it is possible to forget your language in five years if you spoke it for 20.
Something aint right (see my poll) - winks
I agree. This guy seems shady.
I highly doubt I'd ever forget the language.
From what I can find out he is a deserter,
Obama is a traitor, should face the charge
The Army is interrogating him big time as we speak.
He better not get a medal.
