when a fool peaks and acts

Before the U.S. transferred five Afghan Taliban detainees to secure the freedom of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, American intelligence officials predicted that two of the men would return to senior positions with the militant group, according to U.S. officials.
The classified assessment, a consensus of spy agencies compiled during the prisoner-swap deliberations, said two others of the five were likely to assume active roles within the Taliban, while only one of the five released detainees was considered likely to end active participation in the groups effort to undermine the elected government of Afghanistan.
President Obama didnt listen to the national security officials in his own administration, nor did he let Congress in on the deal. Perhaps he considers their views irrelevant, or maybe he understood that Congress would ask difficult questions and strongly object for precisely the reasons that the intelligence officials did. In any event, the White House might have gotten a better read on how the public would react and therefore decide to ditch the Rose Garden show, which backfired on the administration.
