The Announcement

On May 31, Obama appeared in the White House Rose Garden with the parents of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to announce that the soldier was being released after five years of captivity in Afghanistan in exchange for the release of five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay. “He wasn’t forgotten by his community in Idaho, or the military, which rallied to support the Bergdahls through thick and thin," the president said. "And he wasn’t forgotten by his country, because the United States of America does not ever leave our men and women in uniform behind.”
