All Points: Taliban prisoner swap

On May 31, President Barack Obama announced that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a prisoner of the Taliban since 2009, was coming home after the U.S. agreed to exchange five high-value terrorists held at Guatanamo Bay. Since his release, reports have emerged that Bergdahl voluntarily walked off base before his capture. Several of Bergdahl’s platoon mates say this was an act of desertion, although the Pentagon has not officially labeled him a deserter. Assuming these accounts are true, was the exchange a wise decision? Should he be court-martialed? Or has he suffered enough?
