motivation? How about just the fact we freed 5 Taliban soldiers for one of our own who might have deserted his post! This opens up a big can of worms that now our enemies can go back and get hostages knowing Obama might possibly free their own. 5 for 1 deal sounds pretty good for the Taliban. We might have a guy facing a court martial while those 5 Taliban will be considered heroes and probably back to being a terrorist within a year of release from Qatar.
