Yesterday on Washington Watch, Retired Air Force Colonel Rob Maness joined FRC President Tony Perkins to discuss the recent exchange of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban terrorists.
Tony says that this questionable exchange has rightly dominated national discussion and is one in which Americans should be demanding answers. Having spent 32 years in the military, USAF (Ret.) Col. Maness calls the dealing “unfathomable.” Maness says that the released Taliban leaders are “much more dangerous that they were at the start; they’ve learned a lot about Americans from experience in prison.” They “will use that (experiences) against us,” Tony states.
Both Maness and Perkins agree that this type of exchange leaves terrorists inspired and puts U.S. Service-members serving in hostile environments at greater risk. Now that these fierce leaders are back on the battlefield, what should Congress do? To listen to the discussion and to hear about how Col. Maness thinks Congress should respond, click here.
