Pentagon: "Doesn't matter" how Bergdahl was captured

Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl is free. But at what cost?

The American soldier held captive by the Taliban for nearly five years was swapped for five Taliban leaders being held at Guantanamo Bay.

Bergdahl is currently at a military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, and is in stable condition.

Does Bergdahl swap set precedent?

But was the prisoner swap worth the risk to American security?

OutFront, Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby.

Official: "Absolutely sure" MH370 is not in ping area

It's been nearly three months since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared and now the most promising lead has been discounted.

A U.S. Navy official tells CNN the underwater pings thought to be from MH370 are not from the plane.

Australian authorities heading the search say they've been looking in the wrong place for weeks.

So will the missing plane ever be found?

In interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, the man leading the investigation, Chief Commissioner for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, Martin Dolan says he is "absolutely sure" that the plane is not in the ping area.

Fellow soldier claims Bergdahl deserted Army: "It was pre-planned"

Many Americans are anxiously awaiting the homecoming of U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, released this weekend after spending fives years held prisoner by the Taliban.

Fellow soldiers call Bowe Bergdahl a deserter, not a hero

Bergdahl is now at a U.S. military hospital in Germany. But critics say the deal made to free Bergdahl - releasing five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay prison in exchange for the U.S. soldier - could cost American lives in the future.

Not everyone thinks Bergdahl was worth that price, including some men who served with Bergdahl in Afghanistan.
