Who's Bowe Bergahl...

...and why did we swap 5 GTMO detainees for him?

Rolling Stone has a fine in-depth article about Bergdahl, his history, and whether he did in fact walk away from his duty post in Afghanistan with intent to desert (I'd say yes, myself).

I'm thinking that his best bet will be to trade all the information he has about his captors for leniency in any court-martial proceeding, maybe plead to a lesser charge of dereliction of duty or unauthorized absence.

Update: Soopermexican has a series of Tweets from a man claiming to be a comrade of Bergdahl's, refuting much of the Rolling Stone article. Take it for what it's worth.
