In The Dark

Those who were in the know have issued an explanation for why most members of Congress were kept in the dark about negotiations between the United States and the Taliban. Two unnamed senior officials from Congress and the White House say they worried the Taliban would kill their captive, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, if word got out. In a deal that's proven controversial, Bergdhal was exchanged for five top Taliban leaders. They were released from Guantanamo Bay and shipped to Qatar. A federal law requires Congress to be told 30 days before a prisoner is released from the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
