Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger told Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle Monday that it is “absolutely bewildering” that Secretary of State John Kerry would dismiss the argument that releasing five Taliban Gitmo detainees in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl puts U.S. troops at risk.
Kerry said Sunday the former detainees could indeed return to terrorism, but claimed the fear that troops in Afghanistan would be more at risk was “baloney,” particularly because the United States is winding down its military presence in that country.
“Our combat role in Afghanistan is over,” Kerry told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’re going to have very few people in that kind of position.”
