He didn't have to do this prisoner exchange to get Bergdahl back; they've reported that this particular group of the Haqqani Network holding Bergdahl originally requested money that they didn't ask for a prisoner exchange. RNC, this wasn't about getting Bergdahl back, he just happened to be a "useful tool" for Obama, the excuse used to release these five. The President's own words in Brussels, yesterday, June 5, "We saw an opportunity, and we seized it..." Obama wants to close GITMO, the Bergdahl swap served his purpose towards that end. If Obama was so concerned about not leaving a man behind, he would have sent special forces in a long time ago instead of waiting five years; they knew where he was being held.
Obama has shown over and over again who he really cares about, and what he really thinks of America. Something him and Bowe Bergdahl appear to have in common.
