A senior defense official says Bowe Bergdahl, the Army sergeant who spent nearly five years as a Taliban captive in Afghanistan, has been returned to regular Army duty.

As of Monday he is assigned to U.S. Army North at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston in Texas. That is the same location where he has been decompressing from the effects of his lengthy captivity.

His exact duties were not immediately disclosed.

The Army was expected to officially announce the¬†Bergdahl move Monday. A senior defense official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to provide details about the decision on the record before the announcement.

Bergdahl was released from captivity on May 31 in exchange for five top Taliban commanders imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.

    It seems a little odd the “Investigation” concerning how and why he left his unit was conducted. There were no interviews of his fellow soldiers who claimed he deserted them and should be considered a traitor. Could it be that obama setting loose five terrorists in exchange for bergdahl might not have been a good decision if he was indeed a traitor? It might look bad, so here we go again, another cover up scandal by the most transparent administration ever. What a joke.

    Not sure if there is any truth to it or not but it seems that I heard someone comment that in order for them to court martial him, he must first be returned to active duty status. Maybe that’s what’s going on…………or not, who knows?
