A U.S. official tells CNN that Sergeant Bergdahl may have tried to escape from his Taliban captors on at least two occasions. Investigative reporter David Rohde was held for seven months by the Taliban before he succeeded in escaping. He tells Anderson why it may have been more difficult for Sgt. Bergdahl to get away.
In the moments after the shooting at Seattle Pacific University, Anderson spoke with student Briana Clarke. She describes hearing two rounds of shooting and discusses the response.
The video of Bowe Bergdahl's handover is fueling the controversy surrounding his release. The Taliban is using the recording as propaganda. Now every move on the video is being analyzed. Anderson watched it with two people who spent time held captive in Afghanistan and a former Navy SEAL commander.
