Radio Times

The release of Bowe Bergdahl and the issues it raises

June 4, 2014


Guests: Eric Schmitt and Kurt Eichenwald

The release of American soldier Bowe Bergdahl in exchange for five members of the Taliban has raised a whole set of legal, diplomatic and national security questions. In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll shed some light on the case – what we know about Bergdahl and the Guantanamo detainees who were freed, the behind-the-scenes negotiation for his release, was it all legal and what precedent it sets for the future? Our guests are New York Times reporter ERIC SCHMITT and KURT EICHENWALD, Senior Writer for Newsweek and Contributing Editor at Vanity Fair.
