Republicans Question Prisoner Exchange with Taliban

Republicans in the United States welcomed on Sunday the release of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, but questioned the price the U.S. had to pay: the release of five Taliban terrorists.

Bergdahl, held for nearly five years in Afghanistan, was freed Saturday in a deal with the Taliban brokered by the Qatari government.
