Obama made the right call on Taliban prisoner trade

Regarding the flak over our exchange of five Taliban prisoners for Sgt. Bergdahl from Sen. John McCain, Rep. Chris Collins and mostly all Republicans, if President Obama had called any of you and said, “I can get your son back, but I need to trade five formerly dangerous prisoners that can come back and possibly attack us again,” would your answer be “I don’t think that’s a fair trade” or would it be, “Make the trade and send my son back?”

It’s easy to criticize Obama politically, but when it hits home, it changes everything.
