SHARE Cheney: Bergdahl prisoner swap result of 'really bad staff work'

Former Vice President Dick Cheney says the swap of five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is a result of “really bad staff work” that will result in “attacks against America.”

I think there is a distinct possibility that these five will in fact go back into battle, Cheney told Megyn Kelly on Fox Monday night. When you have people this highly motivated … these are people who are most likely to go back and once again launch strikes or attacks against Americans and against allies in the region.

He went on to say that the Obama administration didn’t get “a very good deal.”

“I think if we analyze this situation very carefully, we violated a basic tenet, first of all, for negotiating with terrorists but secondly in releasing five of the most deadly terrorists that we have in Guantánamo Bay,” Cheney said. “I think we’ll pay another type of price because of this transaction right here.”
