Brian Bouffard, Military Defense Counsel

Contrary to what you may have heard earlier in the week, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has not been charged with desertion. Bergdahl left his post in Afghanistan and was held prisoner by the Taliban for five years. He was returned to the United States in a prisoner exchange last May. Multiple media outlets reported desertion charges had been handed down or were impending. But the Army said no decision has been made. Brian Bouffard is a military defense attorney and former JAG. He joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to speculate on what happens next.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

Military leaders up to and including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff say cyber attacks by a sophisticated nation state are near the top of the list of things they worry about. From that point of view, a new Pentagon report has to make them worry a bit more. It finds that far too many of DoD's own networks aren't up to the challenge of defending against amateur cyber attackers. On In Depth with Francis Rose, Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu talks about it as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.
