    The United States has a very long history of prisoner exchanges. The rest of your post doesn't deserve commenting on.

    Something Bergdahl recounted in an e-mail to his parents. The entire unit was just a bunch of undisciplined incompetent yahoos. Something made clear years ago by the Pentagon. Perhaps these men are afraid of what else his might say.

    Lol !!

    The President ABSOLUTELY looks bad.

    First he released 5 Taliban leaders without following the law HE SIGNED.

    5 Guys who are going to be returning to their waiting terrorist organization.

    He lied about Bergdahl, lied about his health, lied about his service record, lied about everything.

    Ofcourse they're "garbage" to you. ( Lol...they ran down children ? )

    If you're going to make stuff up why show up here ? We're all adults, and its the least YOU can do to act like one.

    Like I said, they ruined your Presidents "success story " of freeing a US veteran.

    This was a HUGE Fail by the Obama administration.

    And WE warned you people back in 2008. There are real consequences to electing a incompetent.

    But you people equated plattitudes and bumper sticker slogans to Presidential qualifications.

    i think this was just the tip of the iceberg. Some highlights:

    The discipline problems that had plagued Bowe's unit back home only got worse when immersed in the fog of war. From the start, everything seemed to go wrong. In April, Lt. Fancey was removed from his post for clashing with a superior officer. He was replaced by Sgt. 1st Class Larry Hein, who had never held such a command – a move that left the remote outpost with no officers. According to four soldiers in the battalion, the removal of Fancey was quickly followed by a collapse in unit morale and an almost complete breakdown of authority.

    The unruly situation was captured by Sean Smith, a British documentary filmmaker with The Guardian who spent a month embedded with Bowe's unit. His footage shows a bunch of soldiers who no longer give a ****: breaking even the most basic rules of combat, like wearing baseball caps on patrol instead of helmets...
    In early June, after photographs taken by Sean Smith appeared in The Guardian, Bowe's unit got reamed out by its commander for its lack of discipline. Bowe's squad leader, Sgt. Greg Leatherman, was demoted, and two other sergeants in the squad were reassigned. According to Fancey, one was made "a gate guard for the rest of the deployment."
    The unit, for its part, continued to bungle even the most basic aspects of military duty. During the last week of June, the platoon spent a day resupplying at Forward Operating Base Sharana. When someone in the unit lost his weapon, everyone in the platoon had to drop what they were doing and look for it.
