Republicans attack Obama over soldier swap

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers speaks during a press conference in Washington, on October 8, 2012Top Congressional Republicans have raised sharp questions about President Barack Obama’s deal to swap five Taliban members for a captured US solder, with some even accusing him of breaking the law. Several opposition Republicans issued statements welcoming Saturday’s release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. But several Republicans also claimed that his exchange for “terrorists” held in the Guantanamo Bay detention centre would just encourage more kidnappings of US soldiers. Lawmakers were not told of the Guantanamo prisoner transfer until after the swap, the Washington Post reported.
