Questions raised on the release of Taliban terrorists

World Today

U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, held by the Taliban for nearly five years, is now at a US Military Hospital in Landstuhl, Germany. It is the next step in what will be a long process of recovery, and rehabilitation after his ordeal. He was freed for five Guantanamo terrorism detainees in a swap stirring a sharp debate in Washington over whether the U.S. should have negotiated with the Taliban over a prisoner exchange.

U.S. Congressional leaders also say Obama violated existing laws requiring the president to notify Congress 30 days before any prisoners are transferred from the detention center at Guantanamo Bay.  CCTV’s Sean Callebs has the details on this latest controversy.
