Bowe Bergdahl, but to take ownership over the decision by presenting it to the American people in a ceremony with Bergdahl's parents at the White House Rose Garden? Clearly Obama overreached. He misread the public's disposition.

It was CNN and NBC News.

MSNBC commentators criticized the swap. And CNN interviewed Bergdahl's platoon mates who to a man accused him of desertion, with many alleging as well that he collaborated with the enemy.
