    Was Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl – Taliban hostage deal worth it? (Reader Poll)

    Was Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl – Taliban hostage deal worth it? (Reader Poll)

    http://youtu.be/9wB9Nuaziag

    Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released yesterday in exchange for 5 top Taliban terrorists held at Gitmo.

    On the one hand, an American soldier was brought home. As with the Israelis, it sends a signal that we don’t leave anyone behind, even when the trade is lopsided and frees those who may kill again.

    On the other hand, the details of Bergdahl’s capture are less than heroic. He apparently walked away from his base in Afghanistan, based on disillusionment and shame at being an American.

    Was the deal worth it?

    (Poll Open until midnight Pacific Time today)

    Here’s the deal I’d negotiate: We give back ALL the Gitmo detainees under one condition – they take Obama along with them.

    No! No! No!

    Five high value Taliban operatives four one deserter is never a good deal.

    This whole thing was a distraction created to blunt the effect of the multiple “phony” scandals knocking at the door of this administration PERIOD!

    He was promoted in absentia to sergeant on June 17, 2011.
