A Flagrant and Indefensible Dereliction of Duty

I'm speaking of Obama's, of course, in trading Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl--who is about to be charged by the military with desertion, among other serious charges--for five Taliban commanders who, until Obama sprung 'em, had been safely locked away in Gitmo. According to one report, at least three of the tradees have now sought to rejoin the jihad.

Does anyone doubt that, had he to do it all over again, Obama (who said just the other day that, looking back, he should have closed Gitmo on his first day in office) would make the identical bone-headed trade?
