3. Spare a thought for this poor bastard
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowe_Bergdahl

Held by the Taliban-allied Haqqani network since 2009. The US is not negotiating for his release and says that they don't do deals with terrorists. The Talian are asking for 21 prisoners to be freed in exchange for his release, which seems a bargain compared with what Hamas asked and received in exchange for Shalit.

I doubt that even one percent of the US population (including political leaders) could even recall this guy's name. They sure do care for their enlisted men over in the good old US of A.
