The video showed a brief clip of Bergdahl standing in front of a carpet in combat fatigues and helmet and wearing sunglasses.

"I'm afraid to tell you that this war has slipped from our fingers and it's just going to be our next Vietnam unless the American people stand up and stop all this nonsense," he said.

He is the first US soldier to be captured in Afghanistan since the US-led war in 2001.
