Obama Administration Negotiates With Terrorists And Release 5 Taliban Prisoners From Guantanomo Bay, Cuba

Since when do we negotiate with terrorists?  We simply release 5 terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba? For 1 U.S. soldier?

Does this now not increase the risk of our soldiers, especially female soldiers from being kidnapped and tortured?  

Is this not a violation of American law by bypassing the required 30 day notice that must be given to Congress?  Is this an impeachable offense?

Did the Obama administration do this to deflect the attention that has been on Obama for the Veteran Administration scandal? 

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been freed after being held prisoner
in Afghanistan for nearly five years. Officials said the Taliban agreed to turn him over in exchange for the release of five Afghan detainees from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

In 2008 it was reported the 5 Afghan detainees were senior members of Al Qaeda and responsible for many American deaths.  
U.S. officials say the only American soldier held prisoner in Afghanistan has been freed and is in U.S. custody.

The officials say Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's  release was part of a negotiation that includes the release of five Afghan detainees held in the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The negotiation between the U.S. and the Taliban was mediated by the government of Qatar.

The 28-year-old Berghdal had been held by the Taliban since June 30, 2009. The officials say he is in good condition and able to walk.

The officials insisted on anonymity in order to describe the details on Bergdahl's release.
