US soldier held by Afghan militants to face court-martial

Bergdahl’s case has generated massive controversy in the United States after it emerged he walked out of his unit willingly, prompting a massive manhunt, and because of the circumstances of his release in return for five militants. Some of his former colleagues have blamed Bergdahl — who could face up to life in prison if convicted — for the deaths of several soldiers on missions looking for him.
