Stunning new details on the deal that freed army sergeant Bowe Bergdahl have been released.
A senate aide says the U.S. was warned that if word of the deal leaked out Bergdahl would be executed by the Taliban. While many senators were shocked by a proof-of-life video from Bergdahl’s captivity,
critics still say the price was too high. But president Obama says the prisoner swap controversy was whipped up in Washington. And he’s making no apologies for trading five Taliban detainees for Bergdahl.
The administration continues to insist Bergdahl’s health and safety were at risk. And to make that point showed senators a classified video of Bergdahl from December 2013.
