After being held for five years, Bowe Bergdahl has been released by the Taliban: http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/06/01/us-soldier-afghanistan-release-idUSKBN0EB0M320140601 He was released in exchange for five Taliban detainees who had been held in Guantanamo. As stated in the article, there is some controversy about his release, since it required negotiating with the Taliban. I have mixed feelings about that, but I think it signals the Taliban are a much lower threat than they used to be. It will be a tough transition for him. One report I read said he was having trouble speaking English! In any case: Welcome home, Bowe!
