Despite the bold news headlines, "coming home" isn't as easy as it sounds. Now that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been freed, can't he just get on a plane and be on his way to his family? Not so fast. Bergdahl faces much more than a media firestorm as he prepares to re-enter society. POW reintegration, or "decompression" in Army speak, is a tedious process fraught with potential difficulties, especially for Bergdahl.
Prompted by the vast number of returned POWs after the Vietnam War, the Pentagon developed the following protocol. There are three main phases:
Gen. Jim Jones, Intel Chair Rep. Mike Rogers and diplomat Nick Burns on balancing 'leave no man behind' and 'we do not negotiate with terrorists' after the release of five Gitmo detainees in exchange for captive Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
National Security Adviser Susan Rice on the administration's negotiations for the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
