Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Defense to obtain information on the five terrorists the Obama administration released from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Haqqani terrorist network for five years. This lawsuit asks a federal court to fulfill Judicial Watch’s initial FOIA request on this matter, specifically on why these terrorists were released. This is the third FOIA lawsuit Judicial Watch has filed in regards to the Bergdahl swap.

Read this powerful quote from Tom Fitton, stated in the article:
Aside from any legal trouble for Bergdahl, the circumstances of his release deserve intense investigation, which is exactly what Judicial Watch is doing. Three federal lawsuits, to start, is the least that can be done considering the potential high level criminal wrongdoing and risk to innocent lives caused by Obama’s and his appointees’ contempt for the rule of law.
