According to the Army Times, these reports are untrue.

To be sure the left doesn't want to deal with this rather straightforward problem that makes Obama look bad.
So I also take it "with a grain of salt" why CNN's sources has not also reported on this development.
UPDATE: Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will be charged with desertion, NBC News reports. The charges, which a source described as going well beyond a lesser offense of being absent without leave, could be referred within a week. Defense and military sources told the news network that though a court martial could lead to a prison sentence, Bergdahl would likely receive consideration for the years he spent in captivity and be allowed to leave the Army with a "less than honorable discharge."

He walked away from his duty in a war zone and went looking to hug the enemy. This caused US military personnel to have to go looking for him and some died doing so. He deserves to be put on trial for desertion. If found guilty, he should be jailed for life (the death penalty is available for this crime).

I think he is the one that hung his unit and the country out to dry?
I agree they have a need to try to keep it all low key
“The reporting from Fox News and NBC on Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is patently false. To be clear there have been no actions or decisions on the Sgt. Bergdahl investigation. The investigation is still with the Commanding General of U.S. Army Forces Command who will determine appropriate action — which ranges from no further action to convening a court martial. We understand the public interest in this case and once a decision has been made, the Army will be open and transparent in this matter.”
