Negotiations Underway to Retrieve American P.O.W.

Posted: Updated:

The Obama administration has begun the process of negotiating the release of America's only current prisoner of war.

Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was captured in Afghanistan in 2009.

It's believed he is being held by a group that has ties to the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

U.S. diplomats are leading the discussion that may end with a prisoner swap. If the negotiations are successful, five members of the Afghan Taliban currently held at Guantanamo Bay will be traded for Bergdahl.
