(NBC News)  The Taliban has released a video showing the handover of Bowe Bergdahl to U.S. Forces.  

Bergdahl looks bewildered as the Taliban video begins, sitting in truck as a U.S. helicopter descends.

The Pentagon describes the event as a "scripted handoff," and the video has gone viral.  Many are calling it a propaganda win for the Taliban.

That's driving more criticism of President Obama for secretly agreeing with the Taliban.

"It's not the best deal we could have gotten," says Senator Lindsey Graham.  "It's the deal they wanted."
