That's the news from the Washington Post this hour. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who lived in Taliban captivity for five years and was ultimately released in exchange for five Taliban militants held in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has been charged with desertion (Art. 85, UCMJ) and misbehavior before the enemy (Art. 99, UCMJ).

Army officials will hold a press conference from Fort Bragg, North Carolina to provide an update on the case at 3:30 pm.
