Senate Intelligence Committee To Meet About Prisoner Exchange

WASHINGTON - Senate Intelligence committee members will meet behind closed doors with officials from the Department of Defense today to try to understand why the Obama administration let five 5 Taliban fighters go in exchange for Army Sargent Bowe Bergdahl.

The Taliban fighters must remain in Qatar for at least a year. Some lawmakers say their release could pose a risk to other US troops abroad.

The Pentagon determined in 2010 that the Bergdahl had walked away from his unit.

Bergdahl is hospitalized in Germany in stable condition, undergoing treatment that will help him re-integrate into society.
