(NBC) - The release of an American POW in Afghanistan has the Obama administration on defense about the price they paid to bring him home.

Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, a Prisoner of War, is free in exchange for five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders at Guantanamo Bay, and they're already being welcomed home.

On Monday morning, he's recovering at Landstuhl Medical Center in Germany.

The army says there is no time frame for how long he'll be there.
