U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a "mujahid," or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News.

The reports indicate that Bergdahl's relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, "he became much more of an accepted fellow" than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a gun at times.

The documents show that Bergdahl at one point escaped his captors for five days and was kept, upon his re-capture, in a metal cage, like an animal. In addition, the reports detail discussions of prisoner swaps and other attempts at a negotiated resolution to the case that appear to have commenced as early as the fall of 2009.

The reports are rich in on-the-ground detail -- including the names and locations of the Haqqani commanders who ran the 200-man rotation used to guard the Idaho native -- and present the most detailed view yet of what Bergdahl's life over the past five years has been like. These real-time dispatches were generated by the Eclipse Group, a shadowy private firm of former intelligence officers and operatives that has subcontracted with the Defense Department and prominent corporations to deliver granular intelligence on terrorist activities and other security-related topics, often from challenging environments in far-flung corners of the globe.

The group is run by Duane R. ("Dewey") Clarridge, a former senior operations officer for the Central Intelligence Agency in the 1980s best known for having been indicted for lying to Congress about his role in the tangled set of events that became known as the Iran-Contra scandal. He was pardoned by the first President Bush in December 1992 while on trial.

Clarridge counts a number of achievements in his spy career as well, including a prominent role in the establishment of a national counterrorism center at CIA, a move widely copied around the world by foreign intelligence agencies. A New York Times profile of Clarridge published in January 2011 disclosed the contractual relationship Eclipse had with the Pentagon, through subcontractors, and reported further that Clarridge's activities had included efforts to help find Bergdahl.

Clarridge told Fox News his group enjoyed a subcontract through the assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict from November 2009 through May 31, 2010, and that after the contract was terminated, he invested some $50,000 of his own money to maintain the elaborate network of informants and handlers that had yielded such detailed accounts of Bergdahl's status.

Clarridge further told Fox News that by the end of 2010, he had furnished at least 13 of these detailed SITREPs, or situation reports, that his network generated about Bergdahl to Brig. Gen. Robert P. Ashley Jr., who in April 2010 was named director of intelligence, at the J-2 level, at U.S. Central Command, or CENTCOM, headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida.

Clarridge said Eclipse SITREP # 3023, dated Aug. 23, 2012 -- in which a member of the Haqqani network, said to be close to Bergdahl's captors, reported that the American prisoner had declared himself a "mujahid" -- was among the reports provided to Ashley.

The latter is now commanding general at the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence and Fort Huachuca, where a message left with the public affairs office was not immediately returned.

The documents obtained by Fox News show that Eclipse developed and transmitted numerous status reports on the whereabouts of the errant American soldier, spanning a period from October 2009, roughly three months after Bergdahl reportedly walked off his base in Afghanistan and fell into custody of the Haqqani network, up through August 2012.

At one point -- in late June 2010, after Bergdahl succeeded in one of his escape attempts -- the Haqqani commanders constructed a special metal cage for him, and confined him to it. At other points, however, Bergdahl was reported to be happily playing soccer with the Haqqani fighters, taking part in AK-47 target practice and being permitted to carry a firearm of his own, laughing frequently and proclaiming "Salaam," the Arabic word for "peace."

Reached by telephone, retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James N. Mattis, a 45-year service veteran who served as CENTCOM commander from August 2010 to August 2012, told Fox News he may have received bits and pieces of the intelligence generated by Eclipse, but said Ashley, with whom he maintained a close working relationship, had not forwarded on to him the specific SITREPs cited by Fox News.

I'd like to see him executed but we'll have to settle for life in prison, if even that much.

I wonder if it will ever be mentioned how Obama paraded this guy before a camera praising him as a hero. Also, Susan Rice praised him the the same way declaring he was a veteran who served with distinction.

As much as I despise Bathhouse Barry,I hope not. Given the nature of the typical boob tube "thinker" of today,it's it's heard on teebee it MUST be a fact because they know their teebee's would never lie to them.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

As I remember, there was also the father of the deserter who was there praising Islam, at the Presidential podium. This embarrassed rest room rest stop Barry. The whole event got shoved out of view after that.

Borat Odinga only appeared in the Rose Garden with the parents, not with Bergdahl himself.

Odinga was very careful to distance himself from certain matters, to leave no records or images that would come back to haunt him.

Okay, it's a difference without much of a distinction. He was obviously praising Bergdahl.

The matter was quickly dismissed as something never to be discussed again.

There is a difference. 0bama appeared with his parents, desperate to recover their son from the Taliban. A lot of parents would sympathize with them, especially since 0bama and crew were pretending that he had just wandered off or got lost, never mentioning the evidence that pointed directly toward voluntary desertion.

He was careful never to appear with Bergdahl himself, likely because he was told by his own military advisers it was likely Bergdahl would be convicted and sent to prison for decades. 0bama didn't want any photo of him with a convicted traitor floating around.

He appeared there to praise Bergdahl. That's what I remember.

So if Bergdahl himself was not there, forgive me for having false memories.

Nothing to forgive. I just don't recall 0bama ever allowing himself to be with Bergdahl. And I can't find any photos of that but photos of 0bama with the parents are everywhere.
