GOP Lawmakers: Prisoner Exchange Violated Law - ABC News Taliban prisoner swap was ILLEGAL and could lead to Obama's IMPEACHMENT We are leaving the Middle East. Hopefully for good. Seems Republicans are saying, "He was stupid to get caught, leave him. He knew what he was getting into when he enlisted". If we don't get whoever is still alive and captive out now, it may never happen. Since Republicans don't want to pay for veterans here and even cut food stamps for disabled veterans, perhaps that's their plan. How many Americans have disappeared in Iraq and Afghanistan and we don't know if they are alive or not? This is a signal for anyone who may still be an alive captive.
