Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that the United States has a “tradition” of not leaving soldiers in captivity, when commenting about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s controversial release.
“We do have a tradition and I ascribe to it,” Clinton said. “We try not to leave any of our soldiers on the field. We try to make sure, insofar as possible, you know, we bring them home.”
The army sergeant was released on Saturday after five years of captivity by the Taliban in Afghanistan, in exchange for the release of five prisoners from Guantánamo Bay. Some Republicans have criticized the White House for negotiating with the militant group.
