Congressional Committee Holds Hearing on Sgt. Bergdahl Exchange
BOISE, Idaho (KTVB) – A Joint Subcommittee on Foreign Affairs met for three hours Wednesday looking into the details of the Bowe Bergdahl exchange and the events surrounding his disappearance.
The committee had a panel of people who were all impacted differently by Bergdahl’s disappearance. There were four people who testified before the congressional committee. From their testimonies, only one supported the idea of trading five Taliban members for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
The three others say it was a bad move because of the circumstances surrounding how Bergdahl left. No decisions were made Wednesday, rather it was an attempt to better understand the prisoner exchange and the impact it has on national security. One line of questioning dealt with how Bergdahl was captured.
