An American prisoner of war's captors reportedly said that the United States designating them as terrorists Friday would bring "hardships" to the U.S. soldier.

Senior commanders of the Haqqani network made the comments about Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to the Reuters news agency after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed the paperwork officially classifying the group as a foreign terrorist organization.
