My views on the Bergdahl trade
Those Afghans should have been charged and tried years ago - or, if not, then released years ago. Third option: they should've been treated as Prisoners of War in accordance with the Geneva Convention (and released anyway as we end the war) - but the government wanted to have a "war" without declaring one. It's immoral (and unconstitutional?) to just keep a human being (no matter who) locked up indefinitely without due process because of what they might or might not do in the future. How can we expect other countries to embrace so-called American ideals when we don't? And we brought a captured American home, too. Six people who should not be locked up any longer were finally released. What's not to like?
