The Army sergeant the Obama administration traded five top Taliban fighters for is being charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed a charge sheet by Army officials Tuesday. The report cited Bergdahl’s lawyer, Eugene Fidell, but contained no further details.
A news conference is scheduled for 3:30 PM by Army officials at Fort Bragg. N.C.
Officials declined to give any specifics before the conference.
From the Post:
Bergdahl, 28, went missing from his base in Paktika province on June 30, 2009, and is believed to have grown disillusioned with the U.S. military’s mission in Afghanistan. He was held captive in Pakistan by the Haqqani network, an insurgent group allied with the Taliban, until a deal brokered through the government of Qatar was reached last year.
