Taliban militants in Afghanistan released U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on Saturday after five years of captivity in exchange for the release of five detainees in Guantanamo Bay.
Bergdahl was released to U.S. Special Operations Forces in a Qatar-brokered swap for Afghan Taliban detainees who will be sent to Qatar. Bergdahl was the only American prisoner of war.
U.S. officials said the deal with the Taliban will lead to broader dialogue with the insurgent group, according to The Wall Street Journal, as the U.S. slowly withdraws forces from Afghanistan.
American troops in Afghanistan are slated to be reduced to less than 10,000 by the end of 2014. Some 32,000 troops still remain in the country.
