Veterans Fume: Obama’s Prisoners Swap For Deserter Now Lead Taliban Government, ‘Every Time I Think It Can’t Get Worse It Does’
Republican Rep. Mike Waltz, veteran, former special operations Green Beret fumed at the discovery that prisoners swapped by Obama for Bowe Berghdahl are now leaders in the Taliban government.
“My Green Berets led the search for Bowe Berghdahl. Now, the same top draft pick terrorists the Obama Admin (aka Biden’s Admin now) traded to the Taliban for him are running what’s becoming a terrorist superstate in Afghanistan. Every time I think it can’t get worse… it does,” Waltz said.

Four new officials that will run the new Taliban government are members of the “Guantanamo Five” who were traded for Bow Bergdahl in 2014.
From the Dailymail:
The Taliban on Tuesday announced the appointment of Acting Director of Intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq, Acting Minister of Borders and Tribal Affairs Norullah Noori, Deputy Defense Minister Mohammad Fazl, and Acting Minister of Information and Culture Khairullah Khairkhah.
“I have déjà vu knowing it’s the same national security team in place now that then “exchanged” such high-value terrorists for traitor Bowe Bergdahl,” Waltz told the Dailymain in a statement.
“I personally led searches for Bergdahl and soldiers in other units lost their lives in search of him. Seeing these former Guantanamo prisoners now in charge of a terrorist state that will once again threaten the homeland is a slap in the face to every veteran, gold star family, and victims of 9/11.Despite this, the Biden Administration has still yet to learn appeasement has serious national security consequences and we are more unsafe now as a result of this disastrous withdrawal,” he added.
