LAS VEGAS, Nevada — GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tells Breitbart News exclusively that President Obama’s trade for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl “adds one more national security stupidity notch to Obama’s belt.”

Huckabee’s statement comes after the U.S. Army Forces Command announced military charges against Bergdahl for trial. Bergdahl, who is charged with desertion, was traded for five terrorists after being held captive by the Taliban after leaving his base.

“The American people are sick of President Obama’s public relations crusade for Islam,” Huckabee told Breitbart News in a statement Monday afternoon.

Horse-trading with Taliban terrorists for Bowe Bergdahl adds one more national security stupidity notch to Obama’s belt. In World War II, Bergdahl would have been sentenced to death by a firing squad for deserting his post, but Obama showers him with celebration. We have to quit accommodating for radical Islam. We need a commander in chief who’ll do everything in his power to protect Americans, not praise traitors or obsess over weather patterns. It’s time we put Americans first.
