Chaffetz Critical of Administration-Exchange

Chaffetz(Undated)  —  Utah Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz says he’s not satisfied with the Obama administration’s reasoning for not letting Congress know about a Taliban prisoner exchange for Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl.  Chaffetz [[ CHAY-vits ]] says it’s inexcusable that lawmakers weren’t given 30 days notice about a prisoner exchange that involved five Taliban prisoners being released from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Bergdahl. 


Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein says National Deputy Security Adviser Tony Blinken called her last night and apologized for the “oversight.”  Chaffetz says it’s wrong that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid knew in advance of the prisoner exchange but House Speaker John Boehner [[ BAY-nur ]] did not.
