Scolding Obama for Negotiating with Terrorists

Argument in favor

President Obama violated Constitutional law by not informing Congress of this illegal prisoner exchange. At the very least he deserves to be censured.

While I think it is a successful exchange and Obama did a good job with it, he did not run it by Congress like the law specifically states. He violated the law even if what he did was good.

Argument opposed

President Obama facilitated the successful release of an American POW in an exchange that Congress would have stymied for political reasons. At the very least he deserves a medal.

It sounds like he is far from the first President to do this and it would take a judge to decide if it was legal or not. Article II does seem to cover it. All that aside, it sure does sound like he had a very good reason for doing so. Were past presidents censured for doing it? That should determine the right course of action here.

Really? Congress needs to stop acting like children and get on with the real work that they were elected to handle for the American people.

    While we don't negotiate with terrorists, those POW's are heroes and they needed our help.
