As Twitchy reported, the Obama administration released five Taliban leaders from Gitmo in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held by the Taliban in Afghanistan since 2009. Rep. Mike Rogers blasted the decision, saying it will “threaten the lives of American soldiers for years to come.”

Fox News’ Brit Hume also slammed the decision as only he can:

Machiavellian; Par for the course for this administration.

Heck of job, Barry. Again.
