Could Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl have developed Stockholm Syndrome while in captivity?

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington DC:

A person with Stockholm syndrome subconsciously embraces the mindset of their captors. Counter-terrorism expert Kerry Patton says it's not clear yet whether that happened to Sergeant Bergdahl.

Patton: "Could he have gotten Stockholm syndrome? Well the answer is yes, because anybody who is held against their own will for a prolonged period of time can absolutely get it"

Patton says we won't know for sure until he finishes joint personnel recovery agency debriefings. Secret documents obtained by FOX News reveal Sergeant Bergdahl converted to Islam and fraternized openly with his captors.
