Retired Marine Lt. Col: Bergdahl Swap was a Political Move

Fox News contributor Bill Cowan, a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps, expressed doubt that the timing of the prisoner swap to secure the release of POW U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was motivated by concerns for Bergdahl’s health. Cowan stated, “We have not seen anything coming out indicating he was on a short timeline for living. There doesn’t appear to be health problems.”

He further speculated that Bergdahl’s release was political. He declared, “I think the White House thought they would have a great story of us getting a POW back and without looking into who he was they did whatever they needed to get him out there and run with a good story.”
