Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was released yesterday in exchange for 5 top Taliban terrorists held at Gitmo.

On the one hand, an American soldier was brought home. As with the Israelis, it sends a signal that we don’t leave anyone behind, even when the trade is lopsided and frees those who may kill again.

On the other hand, the details of Bergdahl’s capture are less than heroic. He apparently walked away from his base in Afghanistan, based on disillusionment and shame at being an American.

Was the deal worth it?
