Full coverage of the release of the only U.S. soldier who was held captive in Afghanistan.
Col. Daniel King, spokesman for U.S. Army Forces Command at Ft. Bragg, N.C., announces that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who left his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held by the Taliban, will be charged with desertion.
Roughly a month after his return to the U.S., the freed soldier is back on active duty. Investigators will question him about his disappearance and time as a Taliban captive. NBC’s Gabe Gutierrez reports.
Sen. Lindsey Graham says the deal to swap Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban prisoners puts U.S. security at risk and he wants to know why the Obama Administration felt the need to make such an arrangement.
