President Obama defends his decision to release five Taliban prisoners in exchange for the return of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. FOX 5 spoke with local war veterans for their reaction.
Bergdahl is the American soldier who was held captive in Afghanistan for nearly five years.
President Obama has come under fire for not notifying congress about the exchange.
Many war veterans in Marietta believe President Obama’s actions will hurt not help countless servicemen and woman.
“Our principal has been not to negotiate with terrorists,” said Scott Chadwick, Vietnam War veteran.
FOX 5 stopped by the American Legion Post in Marietta and many veterans are angry.
