U.S. Paid $5 Billion & Released 5 Taliban In Return For Deserter Bergdahl

Do you remember the big news on May 31st when Obama decided to negotiate with terrorists and trade 5 Taliban prisoners for one of our military man Bowe Bergdahl, who happened to be a deserter?

Yeah, well recently it was reported that not only did he make that ridiculous trade- on top of that, he gave $5 BILLION to the terrorists as well. So they got $5 billion plus the top 5 Taliban men that are most likely plotting right now to destroy America, and we got a military personnel back that deliberately walked away from his post and deserted his team and country.

During Bill O’Reilly’s show, he talks about how the recent news with Obama making another trade with Cuba and wanting to lift the embargo reminds us of when Obama traded the Taliban men for a U.S. military deserter half a year ago. Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, who was part of the negotiations, told Bill O’Reilly the US paid out $5 billion and traded five top Taliban Gitmo detainees for Bergdahl.

Bill O’Reilly: Let me just stop you. There were three trade scenarios, there were three things they could have done. You were involved to try to work that out to some extent?

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: Not all of them involved trade. One of them essentially was a direct action. One of them involved my aspect, which was not again a trade. It was something working the issue. And, obviously the one the president went with was the $5 billion to Qatar and the trade of the five Taliban.

O’Reilly: Are you surprised this report… Why hasn’t been released? The Pentagon, they’re not supposed to be political.

Lt. Col. Shaffer: Bill, I understand General Dahl, the investigating officer did an incredible job… I understand he confirmed what was in previous report… Effectively, he deserted.
