Dr. Ivan Eland is no fan of Gitmo or the extra-legal detention of enemy combatants, but he’s troubled by the way the administration arranged the prisoner swap, violating the law and gaining nothing in return. He believes that the President should investigate the manner in which Bergdahl disappeared and the deaths of those who were searching for him, in order to dispel the rumors and half-truths that have circulated since the swap took place. What will become of the Taliban Leaders who were some of the most brutal men captured during the war is another issue that the administration apparently paid almost no attention to. Will they wind up on the battle field only to kill again?
