WARSAW, Poland (AP) — President Barack Obama says his administration had consulted with Congress “for some time” about a possible prisoner exchange for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The 28-year-old Army sergeant was released over the weekend after being taken by the Taliban in Afghanistan five years ago. In return, the U.S. freed five Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay. The White House says it had to act quickly to save Bergdahl’s life. Some lawmakers say the administration didn’t give Congress advance notice of the exchange.
