GOP reacts with scorn to US-Taliban prisoner swap
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is returning home to the US after five years as a prisoner-of-war. The US secured his release from the Taliban by agreeing to transfer five Guantanamo Bay detainees into Qatari custody. Politicians, especially those on the right, are reacting negatively to the decision, saying it sets a dangerous new precedent. Captured in 2009 by the Taliban, Bergdahl was the lone US POW in the war in Afghanistan. RT’s Lindsay France has more details on the reactions to the surprise move.
