Official: Bergdahl left outpost deliberately

(CNN) - The Army will conduct "a comprehensive, coordinated" review into the case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl - the recently freed soldier whom some have deemed a hero, others a deserter - the military branch's civilian leader announced Tuesday.

Secretary of the Army John McHugh began a statement on Bergdahl's case by saying that "we are grateful that an American soldier is back in American hands" and insisting "our first priority is ensuring Sgt. Bergdahl's health and beginning his reintegration process."

McHugh didn't address specific questions surrounding how the soldier ended up detained in Afghanistan or what he did while in that situation. But he did say that the military's review "will include speaking with Sgt. Bergdahl to better learn from him the circumstances regarding his disappearance and captivity."

"All other decisions will be made thereafter, and in accordance with appropriate regulations, policies and practices," McHugh said.

China crackdown on dissidents & media on Tiananmen's 25th anniversary

IT is June 4th in China - where 25 years ago to the day, the bloody crackdown in Tiananmen Square took place.

The protests produced iconic images, such as the one of a man in a white shirt and black pants stepping in front of government tanks.

Today, Internet sites are down, dissidents have been rounded up, and channels like CNN are off the air as the nation tries make sure no one commemorates the events from 25 years ago.

Those protests, lead by pro-democracy demonstrators in 1989, and the military's response rocked the heart of Beijing.

China is making every attempt to erase this image and all traces of what happened that day.

CNN's David McKenzie has the report.
