Bring Bowe Bergdahl Home

Posted on: June 20, 2013

I telephoned Sen. McCain’s office in Tucson, AZ today asking that he work to facilitate the trade between the Afghan Taliban for our soldier Bowe Bergdahl. Being a former P.O.W. himself, I believe Sen. McCain can provide the expertise of his experiences regarding the matter.

The Taliban have offered to trade Bowe Bergdahl for five of their senior operatives imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

I believe the trade is crucial as we head in to the next phase of the war in Afghanistan, peace talks with The Taliban, and though many believe such talks are not advisable, trading the five Taliban operatives for Bowe Bergdahl is a good faith gesture from The Taliban that we should not disregard.

“Leave no one behind.”
