It wasn’t long ago when President Barack Obama broke the law by releasing five dangerous, high-level Taliban fighters in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, a traitor who went AWOL in Afghanistan.
At the time, the fear by most commentators was how these vicious terrorists would return to the battlefield and fight with ISIS or Al Qaeda. And, as McCain explains (above) on Fox News, those fears have become true:
The eagerness with which this administration wants to get these people out of Guantanamo has clearly overridden good sense and a real concern for the lives of American men and women who are serving.
As investigations begin, it will be interesting to learn just how devastating to national security this shameful swap was.
