The U.S. Army has announced that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will face a general court-martial for charges related to deserting his unit in Afghanistan:

The Obama administration traded five Taliban commanders being held at Gitmo in return for Bergdahl. President Obama announced Bergdahl’s release at a high profile press conference in the Rose Garden where he appeared with Bergdahl’s parents.
Does the White House have second thoughts about that?
I wonder if Obama still feels good about that Rose Garden presser with the Bergdahls and Rice calling him “honorable."

The Pentagon has said previously that they suspect at least one of the prisoners released for Bergdahl has returned to the fighting.
