Cheney on 'Kelly File': U.S. Will 'Pay a Price' for Gitmo Release
Former Vice President Dick Cheney tonight said that he believes the Obama administration has negotiated with terrorists by releasing five Guantanamo Bay detainees in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
While Cheney said he is glad for the soldier’s family, he said we released five of the most deadly terrorists at Gitmo.
"I think there is a distinct possibility that these five will in fact go back into the battle. When you have people this highly motivated, [...] these are the people most likely to go back and once again launch strikes or attacks against Americans, against our friends and allies in the region,” he said.
Cheney noted that the nation is getting ready to withdraw completely from Afghanistan and said that the “so-called trade” for Bergdahl seems like “part and parcel of that same unwise policy.”
