** US Economy Grows At 5% Rate **

The U.S. economy grew at the fastest rate in a decade during July, August and September, growing by five percent, which is much faster than first thought.

Officials Tuesday announced the dramatic spike in third quarter gross domestic product, which is the sum of all the goods and services produced in a nation. It is the broadest measure of economic health.

Commerce Department experts routinely revise GDP estimates as more complete data become available.

In this case, stronger consumer spending and business investment helped bolster growth.

**美国经济第三季度出乎意料大幅增长 **

美国经济第三季度7、8、9三个月增长5%,增长速度大大超过预期,是十年来最快的。

美国官员星期二宣布第三季度GDP大幅上升。 GDP是一个国家生产的产品和服务的总和,也是衡量经济健康的一个重要指标。

随着数据的不断更新,美国商务部专家对GDP预测数字正常进行调整。第三季度经济大幅增长主要是得益于消费支出和商业投资比先前估计的更为强劲。

** US Army Refers Bergdahl Case to General Courts Martial Convening Authority**

The U.S. military has referred the investigation of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s 2009 disappearance from a base in Afghanistan to a General Courts Martial Convening Authority, to determine if he should be court martialed.

In a written statement Monday, the Army said the head of its Forces Command, General Mark Milley, will decide either to prosecute the case or take no further action.

The U.S. secured Bergdahl’s release last May in a prisoner exchange with the Taliban. Bergdahl was held captive in Afghanistan for five years.

Some who served with him said he first deserted the Army and then was taken captive by the Taliban.

Analysts say Bergdahl could face charges of desertion or being absent without leave.

If the case is not prosecuted, Bergdahl could be entitled to as much as $300,000 in back pay.

The Army said it does not comment on ongoing investigations.

**美军将领将决定是否审判伯格达尔**

美国军方决定把对中士伯格达尔2009年在阿富汗失踪事件的调查交由一名最高军事法庭开庭授权人,以决定他是否应接受军事法庭审判。

美国陆军星期一发表书面声明说,陆军司令米莱将军将决定是否提出起诉,还是不再采取进一步行动。

美国5月与塔利班交换囚犯,被阿富汗塔利班关押了五年的伯格达尔获释回国。

伯格达尔的一些战友说, 他是开小差离开军队后被塔利班俘虏的。
分析人士说, 伯格达尔可能被控临阵逃脱和擅离职守。

如果军方决定不起诉,伯格达尔可领取多达30万美元的补发工资。

陆军表示不会对正在进行的调查发表评论。
