Tuesday after a rally called “When women succeed, America succeeds,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) answered reporters questions outside the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. A reporter asked for her opinion on the prisoner exchange of five top Taliban terrorist for the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, Pelosi said she has confidence in President Barack Obama’s handling of the situation.
Pelosi then linked the swap to Guantanamo saying the President was within his rights to release the five because Republicans have been blocking solutions. Pelosi said the five will be monitored by Qatar “so they don’t pose a big danger to our country.”
