On May 31, 2014 President Obama announced that POW Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had been released in Afghanistan by the Taliban in exchange for five Taliban prisoners from the detention camp in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Sgt. Bergdahl deserted his unit on June 30, 2009 and was soon taken prisoner by the Taliban near the Pakistan border. Critics say that President Obama violated a law which required him to give 30-day advance notice to Congress before releasing prisoners from Guantánamo and that the prisoner swap will put the U.S. in danger of a terrorist attack by releasing the five Taliban suspects. Supporters argue that engaging in prisoners swaps is a common practice among other countries including Israel and every American soldier's life should be valued regardless of how they were captured.  See recent POW news
