Hillary Clinton doesn’t think the 5 Taliban Barack Obama released from Guantanamo are a threat

Hillary Clinton

“What difference, at this point, does it make?” former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton now famously exclaimed during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Benghazi. As it turns out, that seems to be her attitude toward the release of 5 Taliban fighters in exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, as well.

In an interview on NBC’s “Today,” Clinton, who is promoting her new book “Hard Choices,” responded to a question about whether the release of 5 Taliban fighters held at Guantanamo Bay were a threat to U.S. national security. Her response?

These five guys are not a threat to the
United States
. They are a threat to the safety
and security of Afghanistan.”

Clinton shrugged off reasons why Sgt. Bergdahl may have fallen into enemy hands in the first place. Since the transfer, questions have arisen about whether Bergdahl abandoned his post willingly. Those who served with him have not been altogether forgiving of his disappearance and capture.

But Clinton seemed to trivialize his disappearance. “We want to get an American home, whether they fell off the ship because they were drunk or they were pushed or they jumped,” she said. “We try to rescue everybody.”
