also resulted in freedom for those five guantanamo bay taliban terrorists. >> we needed to get him out of there essentially to save his life. >> he told reporters on his way to afghanistan that he didn't know if bergdahl had been tortured or why his family said the sergeant is having trouble speaking english. only that it is believed he was held captive alone with no other americans. the risky transfer, urgently arranged through qatar who dealt directly with the taliban with drones and helicopters above the afghanistan/pakistan border, u.s. special forces picked him up from some 20 taliban fighters, no shots fired. the noise from the chopper so loud bergdahl was handed a pen to scribble sf for special forces. the soldiers yelling back, yes, adding we have been looking for you for a long time. bergdahl then breaking down in to tears. but the murky details of sergeant bergdahl's original capture in 2009 were not

boosted if they were missing the country would in theory do anything to get them back. it has ramifications to build morale way beyond a family or soldier. >> that really helps explain it, i think. that explains why you get five taliban for one american. >> very strange, yes. president obama administration is set to make what could turn out to be the boldest move of his presidency on climate change. the epa is expected today to release new regulations curbing earth warming emissions in the nation's power plants by 30%. that would be by 2030. opponents say the new regulation would drive up energy costs and force many plants to close costing the economy some 224,000 jobs a year. federal investigators say it is too early to know what caused the small plane crash that killed media mogul lewis katz and six others saturday night. the plane was attempting to take

headed to atlantic city. former pennsylvania governor ed rendell was supposed to be on the plane but cancelled because of a prior commitment. ntsb officials say it appears the pilot did not communicate having any problems. >> i think we can say we know it happened late in the takeoff. it came as a shock to the crew because they did not have a chance to get the plane stopped safely by the end of the runway. >> reporter: officials say the plane had both a flight data recorder and a voice recorder which they hope to recover soon to find out what went wrong here. alex perez, abc news. >> thank you, alex. a stunt pilot died in a crash in an air show over the weekend in wisconsin. police say the 47-year-old pilot was performing tricks at the stevens point air show when his plane went down in a wooded area near the airport runway. he was pronounced dead at the scene. officials shut down the air show right after the crash. the faa and ntsb are investigating the cause of the crash. near chicago, the coast
