letter to the editor:

Deal for soldier is risky move for U.S.

Was trading five Taliban detainees for a U.S. soldier a good trade? What are the five detainees going to do, go home and sit in their rocking chairs? I don’t think so. These are terrible men who are likely to harm or kill people.

It is nice to help a troubled soldier, but at what cost? We have already lost men trying to get him back, but that may be a very small cost to this trade. I guess we have to wait and see.
