Bowe Bergdhal, a US soldier held captive since 2009, has been released in a prisoner exchange agreement for five Taliban officials. Good move?
I think it's a great move. We need to bring every soldier home from battle.
If he hadn't walked off the post, he would have long since been home.
I agree, But he walked off.
I don't think the military has any responsibility for him.
I may seen like a jerk but, sacrifice one for the benefit of the many. Those five officials could kill many many anericans. Was that one guy worth more deaths. Also imagine all the work they had to do to catch those guys, all down the drain
you forgot the part about him being captured because he went AWOL.
While I am overjoyed to see this US veteran return home I must say this agreement has the potential to put soldiers and other Americans in danger of kidnapping in the future, which is a consideration we cannot take lightly
Kidnap > kill. Every day. Every single time.
I agree, but there is no reason to assume people who would kidnap Americans would like to kill them.
Happy for the guy that he gets to come home, but certainly not happy with the way this was done. I say no.
Well, the more we're learning about the situation, it's hard not to say no.
For the 11th time, no!
