Bergdahl Back in U.S.
SAN ANTONIO, TX (CBS2/FOX28) - Army Sergeant Bow Bergdahl is back in the U.S. Bergdahl landed in Texas early Friday morning after his doctors said he was well enough to fly.
Bergdahl was being treated at a U.S. military hospital in Germany and will now continue his treatment at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.
He returns amid a firestorm of controversy surrounding his release.
Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban in 2009 and last month, he was released when the White House struck a deal with the Taliban; the U.S. exchanged five Taliban prisoners for Bergdahl.
Lawmakers are upset for a number of reasons including not being told about the exchange, some even say the White House was inconsistent with the reason for the speedy swap.
