There are conflicting opinions over the release of five Taliban leaders from Gitmo for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who is being called a deserter by some of his former platoon mates.

O’Reilly went head-to-head with Geraldo Rivera over the White House’s decision to save Bergdahl. 

Rivera said Bergdahl is going to be the embodiment of everything people either love about President Obama or hate about him.

The bottom line, Rivera said, is that “he’s a U.S. GI in trouble overseas. You bring him home no matter what.”

O’Reilly disagreed with that statement, saying, “I don’t believe that there is any kind of compulsion or any kind of moral imperative to trade five war criminals for even a good soldier.”

He told Rivera, who believes that Guantanamo Bay should be closed down, that his analysis of the story may be tainted by his opinion of Gitmo.
