Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, issued the this statement following the Army’s decision on Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl:
“Today’s announcement is the exclamation point on the bad deal the Obama Administration cut to free five terrorist killers in its rush to empty the prison at Guantanamo Bay.  Those five – some of the worst of the worst – will be free in a matter of weeks. The dangerous deal the White House cut has real consequences for the safety of Americans.”
