Release of Sgt. Bergdhal

There are mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance and supposed capture of Sgt. Bergdahl. And they are now overshadowing his release. The outrage is among the Conservative political instigators. Though his release should be joyous, the downfall of his release involves the exchange of 5 Taliban fighters held at Gitmo, Cuba for 12 years, in exchange for Sgt. Bergdhal.Congress is now making an absurd claim, claiming it was against the law to release the terrorists at Gitmo without a 30 day notice. However, the department of justice and the defense department all contend the president has the executive authority to take such action. Especially, when considering Berghal's health was reportedly deteriorating. Had he died, Republicans would be blaming Obama for not taking action. So, Obama took the action he felt he need to save Sgt. Bergdal
