What are we to make of this negotiated exchange with the terrorists? How are Americans going to respond once Bergdahl is on American soil? What happened the night he disappeared into the night without his weapon? Why didn't President Obama go to Congress with this 30 days ago? How much more can we take?

The fury over the exchange is rising as more information comes out. Most of which is coming from the ranks of our military and veterans. Are we surrendering our values and principles for the life of 1 man and placing the World at risk with these 5 released terrorists? Here is a breakdown of the 5 most dangerous at Gitmo:

Abdul Haq Wasiq - Taliban deputy minister of intelligence

Mullah Norullah Nori - Senior Taliban commander in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif who commanded insurgents fighting U.S. forces in late 2001

Khairullah Khairkhwa - Senior Taliban official believed to have ties to Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar, the Taliban's founder

Mohammed Nabi - A regional Chief of Security for the Taliban and eventual radio operator

Mohammed Fazl - Believed to have overseen the mass extermination of Shiite Muslims during the 2000 - 2001 war that saw the Taliban rise to power in Afghanistan.

And of the Soldier:

Bowe Robert Bergdahl - Sgt in the United States Army assigned to the 1st Battalion, 501st Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, based at Fort Richardson, Alaska. Age 28 from Sun Valley Idaho, held captive in Pakistan for 5 years by the Taliban.
