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.
Would you worry about it from a national security level if we freed 5 top Taliban terrorists?
The attempts at justifying this move are full of fail.
