Did the president break the law by negotiating the release of POW Bowe Bergdahl?

  • Yes, the president broke the law by negotiating the release of Bergdahl.

    I think that the president of the United States broke a law when he agreed to exchange the release of POW Bowe Bergdahl for know enemy combatants. The United States should stick by its policy of not negotiating with terrorists. I think that it sets a dangerous precedent for future wars.

  • It violated the Geneva Convention.

    Yes, the president broke the law by negotiating the release of POW Bow Bergdahl, because the Geneva convention states that we cannot, and more importantly, should not negotiate with a terrorist organization. And why did we free several prisoners in exchange for one POW? Obama broke the law and failed to protect his own people.

  • No man should be left behind

    Despite the fact that it has come to light that Bergdahl had abandoned his post, a mistaken choice in the middle of a war is no reason to leave him imprisoned by the enemy. By allowing him to be held captive by enemy troops with no care for his well being would be completely against his human rights. If he has broken the law, it is up to America and its army to punish him as they see fit, but bringing him home was not illegal.

  • No, President Obama did not break the law by negotiating the release of POW Bowe Bergdahl.

    The negotiating for the release of Prisoners of War (POW) has been a matter of record in EVERY conflict the United States has every fought in. The enemy combatants (as described by the Bush Administration) are consider POWs and as such entitled to repatriation to their home countries at the end of hostilities. Sgt. Bergdahl is a member of the US Armed Forces and WE NEVER LEAVE ANYONY BEHIND! If he violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) he will be tried by the military and held accountable. But NO AMERICAN SOLDIER IS EVERY LEFT IN THE HANDS OF THE ENEMY!
