Sgt. Bergdahl Released
June 03, 2014
WASHINGTON (June 3, 2014) -- The White House announced Saturday that America's only known
prisoner of war has been released in exchange for five Afghani prisoners being
held at the U.S. Detention Facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
The release of
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was captured by the Taliban on June 30, 2009, is
great news for his family, and helps to ensure that no American is left behind
once the U.S. ends its involvement in Afghanistan. But the Veterans of Foreign
Wars of the United States is very concerned that negotiating with terrorists
sets a very dangerous precedent.
