Administration officials strongly defended the swap, saying Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s health and safety appeared in danger after five years in captivity. They said they acted to save the life of the only American held by insurgents after the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
But imagine a strategy where a bank of terrorist prisoners are held as currency in case the US need to get back on of their own.
Five for one seems mild compare to that Israel swap of Gilad Shalit. It was an agreement between Israel and Hamas to release Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in exchange for 1,027 prisoners.
Families on both sides want loved one back and having a bank helps in future negotiations no?
