BOISE -- After being held prisoner by the Taliban for five years, the U.S. Military says Bowe Bergdahl's treatment and reintroduction to society will be slow and deliberate.

The only POW of the war in Afghanistan, Bergdahl is decompressing at a military hospital in Germany.

While his family is eager for a reunion, the Obama administration is facing questions about the deal that brought Bergdahl home.

Five Taliban leaders detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba have been released to serve house arrest in Qatar.

It is disturbing that these individuals would have the ability to re-enter the fight, said Sen. John McCain on CBS's Face the Nation. And they are big, high-level people.

In Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel defended the decision not to notify Congress, as required by law.

There was a question about his safety, Hagel told NBC's Meet the Press. We found an opportunity. We took that opportunity.

Critics say the United State broke its policy of never negotiating with terrorists.

Across northern Africa, the number one way that al Qaeda raises money is by ransom, said Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers on CNN's State of the Union. Kidnapping and ransom. We have now set a price.

The White House insists it didn't deal with terrorists, but instead called Bergdahl's release a prisoner exchange.
