PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL THAT WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl's settling into this Texas hospital. It's the latest phase of his rehabilitation after five years in Taliban captivity. He arrived at the Brook Army Medical Center on Friday after an initial stay at a U.S. military hospital in Germany. Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. forces in Afghanistan on May 31st in exchange for five Taliban leaders held at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. The deal has led to allegations that U.S. President Barack Obama's violated his own government's policy against negotiating with those it considers terrorists. Some of Bergdahl's former colleagues are also unhappy. They allege he deserted when he walked away from his outpost in circumstances which are still far from clear.
