Bowe Bergdahl Says Taliban Treated Him Better Than U.S. Army

(CBS) — Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl spent five years as a prisoner of the Taliban. A military judge at Fort Bragg in North Carolina will decide how long he will spend as a prisoner in the U.S.

Sentencing was set to begin Monday, but the judge said he is concerned that President Donald Trump’s comments about the case could impact the public’s perception of the military justice system. The sentencing case is scheduled to resume on Wednesday.
