WASHINGTON - The House Armed Services Committee will investigate the Obama administration's swap of an American prisoner held for five years for five Taliban leaders that caused a political firestorm over the lack of congressional notification and fears the high-level Taliban could return to the Afghanistan battlefield.
"We ought to look at the price," Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon, R-Calif., chairman of the panel, told reporters after administration officials held a tense 90-minute, closed-door briefing for House Democrats and Republicans.
Officials from the White House, State and Defense departments and the intelligence community defended the exchange of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was captured in June 2009 in Afghanistan after he disappeared from his infantry unit, for five Taliban militants from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Taliban Mullah in Chief Hussein Obama has chosen Secretary of Defending the Taliban Hagel to continue to make “Grand Bargains” with Gitmo Prisoners so that Gitmo can be closed on the last day that all US Military Personnel finally abandon Afghanistan to the Taliban.
Just like the Quiet Cricket...but nothing happened.
That may be more accurate than he knows. Bergdahl was held by the Haqqanis and it's been reported a monetary ransom may have been paid.
Gee, I wonder why the headline didn’t read
“House Panel To Investigate Deal That Released Terrorists”
They keep wanting to keep the deserter as the main reason for blowback
I hope they don’t get dragged into the weeds on Bergdahl and lose sight of the larger crime. Focus must be on Obama’s felonious and treasonous acts.
Obama is not remorseful. He admits that the released terrorists might attack us, and he says he would do it again. He has endangered the United States and every American. That danger continues while these released terrorists are free, and he says he will further enhance that danger by releasing additional terrorists. Obama absolutely must be impeached.
This da*n well better not be another dog & pony show. This is beyond any political concern: Obama has committed treason.
Oh boy, another goes-nowhere investigation. Another pile of crap that 0bama & co will get away with, become emboldened thereby, while they cook up the next one.
5 terrorists and Bergdahl ping.
Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif—
-oh, honey, just go mix yourself a drink. Don’t go to any trouble trying to convince anyone you’re actually interested, ok?
Just relax...the media won’t cover anything, anyhow.
Now, just go to your cocktail party.
Also, any committee needs to find out how much $$$ the U.S. coughed up for NOTHING in return.Official: Bergdahl Details Dont Add Up (Cash to the Haqqani network?)"
Congress protects Obama to protect themselves.
Which means absolutely nothing will be done. Easy Peasy.
For some strange reason, the words “dog” and “pony” come to mind here.
Let’s think about this.....
Obama said “NO Soldier left behind”
It doesn’t apply to our Ambassadors
“Caps on the budget. This is not the hill to die for.”
“We can’t impeach the President. We have an election to win.”
“Arrest Lois Lerner for perjury? That’s not an option.”
“Obama Administration dumping illegal immigrant kids in Texas, California, and Arizona? Oh we’ll look into the matter. But we have to pass amnesty first or the Hispanics won’t vote for us.”
Real profiles in courage these GOPe surrender monkeys are. I have the feeling the 2014 elections are gonna be a bust like 1998.
Ooooooh, obama must be quite frightened. The panel may withold dessert for a meal.
