5 Little-Known Facts About The Bowe Bergdahl Controversy That The Media Is Largely Ignoring

The controversy surrounding the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl only continues to intensify as we learn more. However, despite the media blitz, some details seem to have been overlooked.

2. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid knew about the Bergdahl exchange, when the rest of Congress was left in the dark.
