Did the US made the right decision?


I just read a news about swapping five Guantanamo detainees for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahi and I have mixed feelings. Part of me is happy that he can once more enjoy the company of his loved ones. However, I can't stop but think of the possible terror these five men might do after being released. Is one life worth putting millions in danger? Share your thoughts!

    I served 8 years in the USMC, still want to call me an 'armchair patriot"? I bet you never even considered serving your country.

    ummm,Congress was URGING him to release Berghdal for 5 years. Of course they knew.And they kept the operation secret for the safety of that man-you know, the American soldier prisoner of war. All of Gitmo will be freed. Finally, that blight will end.

    I saw today where CNN reports six soldiers died trying to find him after he walked off; and also that our government has already decided not to pursue charges. I hurt for the families of the rescue team; they died in vain for Bergdahl's actions.

    His actions were also illegal as he is required by law to notify congress 30 days in advance of any Gitmo detainee transfer. This is a law that Obama himself signed.

    If you negotiate in good faith, you do not turn around and kill five people. That would just re-escalate the conflict and cost more lives. I am glad our solider was returned home, despite any misdeeds he may have done and no one else died.

    They don't need to be tried, they were found taking up arms against the US while wearing no identifiable uniform nor belonging to any legitimate military force. As for the traitor, in another era he would be facing a firing squad, and rightfully so.

    How long should we hold terrorists without providing the benefit of trial and due process. Even the Nazis had their day in court. I contend many people do not like Obama and will find something wrong with everything he does. I'll let ponder that.
