No, the question we should be asking is a version of the one Pope Francis made famous in a different context: Who Are We To Judge?
Did he really experience "brutal" captivity?"
Was he worth 14 lives lost attempting to rescue him?
Where was the press during those five years?
Should we depend upon the MSM and White House for information, or his colleagues and those with direct knowledge?
It is difficult to judge anything with the lack of information, and the smoke and fog of spin. And, it is difficult to judge with no real source of information on what happened, similar to Benghazi and other scandals.
So, we wait.
Was he worth it is not the issue, it is a distraction.
First, negotiating with terrorists is a horrible idea and never should be done.
Second, The five terrorist we released should never have been released under any circumstances .They should have been executed or spent their lives in jail.
Third, there a many detainees in Gitmo that could have been exchanged for that do not present the risk the five do.
