Watchdog finds Pentagon broke law in Bergdahl transfer

This undated image provided by the U.S. Army shows Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. U.S. officials say the only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed and is in U.S. custody. The officials say Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's (boh BURG'-dahl) release was part of a negotiation that includes the release of five Afghan detainees held in the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The Defense Department violated U.S. law by failing to alert Congress before releasing five Taliban members in exchange for a captured U.S. soldier.
