Taliban: Thank you President Obama!

A commander still with the Taliban, meanwhile, says the exchange of Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders gives the movement legitimacy and has boosted morale among the hundreds of fighters under his command. The prisoner exchange "shows we are able to deal directly with the Americans and also successfully," he tells Reuters.

Fighters rushed to capture Bergdahl after villagers informed them of his presence, and he was found walking alone, acting strangely, and cursing his fellow Americans, one commander tells NBC.

So President Obama traded 5 important Taliban leaders for one Army deserter. Just the latest "brilliant" decision in a presidency filled with brilliant decisions...
