The resolution notes that the detained officers belong to an organization that cooperated with al-Qaeda as part of the 9/11 attacks, and raises concern that this release will have a detrimental effect on national security.
The resolution criticizes Obama and his administration for negotiating with the Taliban and the Haqqani network to secure the release of Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. It also condemns the White House for neglecting to notify Congress of this negotiation until the prisoner exchange occurred.
According to the resolution, Congress has Constitutional authority to legislate prisoner exchanges, and the current members of the national security committees are opposed to it. It also states that the President is obligated to inform Congress of a prisoner exchange 30 days in advance, which Obama did not do.
