Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Realeased by Taliban in Afghanistan Freed in Exchange For 5 Afghan Detainees From GITMO
Sgt. Bergdahl has been freed … in exchange for 5 GITMO detainees.
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the only living POW held by the Taliban in Afghanistan has been freed in exchange for five Afghan detainees from GITMO. Sgt. Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban in 2009 in Afghanistan. Bergdahl, of Hailey, Idaho, is believed to have been held by the Haqqani network since June 30, 2009. Officials said that Sgt. Bergdahl was expected to be transferred to Bagram Air Field, the main U.S. base in Afghanistan, for medical evaluations, then on to the United States.
The only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed by the Taliban in exchange for the release of five Afghan detainees from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Obama administration officials said Saturday.
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was handed over to U.S. special operations forces by the Taliban Saturday evening, local time, in an area of eastern Afghanistan, near the Pakistani border. Officials said the exchange was not violent and the 28-year-old Bergdahl was in good condition and able to walk.
The handover followed indirect negotiations between the U.S. and the Taliban, with the government of Qatar serving as the go-between. Qatar is taking custody of the five Afghan detainees who were held at Guantanamo.
FBI and SEC Probe into Insider Trading Investigation of Carl Icahn, Billy Walters & PGA’s Phil Mickelson
Investor, Bettor, and Golfer Investigated for Insider Trading, Oh My!!!
The NY Times is reporting that federal authorities are investigating a series of well-timed trades made by PGA golfer Phil Mickelson and the gambler William T. Walters, focusing on trading in two different stocks from 2011 and 2012. The Feds are looking into whether Mickelson and Walters may have traded illegally on private information provided by billionaire investor Carl Icahn about his investments in public corporations. The stock trades in question are with Clorox in 2011 and Dean Foods in 2012. As reported at the Business Insider Mickelson stated, “I have done absolutely nothing wrong. I have cooperated with the government in this investigation and will continue to do so.”
Federal authorities are examining a series of well-timed trades made by the golfer Phil Mickelson and the gambler William T. Walters, people briefed on the investigation said, focusing on trading in two different stocks. The authorities are also questioning what role, if any, the investor Carl C. Icahn may have had in sharing information about one of the stocks: the consumer products company Clorox.
Mr. Mickelson, a three-time winner of the Masters golf tournament and one of the country’s highest-earning athletes, placed his Clorox trade in 2011, the people briefed on the investigation said. Mr. Walters, an owner of golf courses who is often considered the most successful sports bettor in the country, made a similar trade about that time, the people added.
Mr. Icahn, a 78-year-old billionaire and one of the best-known investors in the world, was mounting a takeover bid for Clorox around the time that Mr. Mickelson and Mr. Walters placed their trades.
The F.B.I. and Securities and Exchange Commission, which are leading the inquiry along with federal prosecutors in Manhattan, are examining whether Mr. Icahn leaked details of his Clorox bid to Mr. Walters, the people briefed on the investigation said. One theory, the people said, is that Mr. Walters might have passed that information to Mr. Mickelson.
