YAHOO.COM - Rolling Stone published on Thursday a story—"America's Last Prisoner of War"—about Bowe Bergdahl, a 26-year-old U.S. soldier from Idaho captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2009.

The 8,000-plus word piece—written by Michael Hastings, whose "Runaway General" profile in 2010 led to the dismissal of U.S. Gen. Stanley McChrystal—includes excerpts of the last email Bergdahl sent to his parents before he was captured.

In the email, dated June 27, 2009, Bergdahl wrote that he had become disillusioned by the war, and was "ashamed" to be an American. click here for more
