If our enemy has a captive who is loyal to the US I would be much less worried about it from a national security perspective than I would be if they captured a turncoat with inside information who's not only likely to give up information, but actively aid said enemy.
Like I said, I'd be willing to entertain that possibility. But he was PFC when he was captured. Anything of substance he has to offer pales in comparison to what we let waltz out of Gitmo.
