"Amid jubilation Saturday over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from captivity by the Taliban, senior Republicans on Capitol Hill said they were troubled by the means by which it was accomplished, which was a deal to release five Afghan detainees from the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Top Republicans on the Senate and House armed services committees went so far as to accuse President Obama of having broken the law, which requires the administration to notify Congress before any transfers from Guantanamo are carried out.

“Trading five senior Taliban leaders from detention in Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl’s release may have consequences for the rest of our forces and all Americans. Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans. That incentive will put our forces in Afghanistan and around the world at even greater risk,” House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. McKeon (R-Calif.) and the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, James M. Inhofe (Okla.), said in a joint statement.

Lawmakers were not notified of the Guantanamo detainees’ transfer until after it occurred. "

You know that "We will not negotiate with terrorists" gig Bush had going on? That's out the window. bored.gif
The way this was all backdoored, skirting law that stipulates congress must be notified 30 days prior to prisoner transfer and 'provide assurances that those released would not be in a position to reengage in activities that could threaten the United States or its interests.' was obviously, ignored.
Interesting situation shaping up.

It's just one bad call right after another. :sigh: Instead of closing Gitmo like he campaigned on during the hopey changey era, he's now apparently using it to hold bargaining chips to do with as he sees fit with no interference from that pesky congress.
