Ohio lawmaker Jim Jordan (R) said he’s not surprised four Guantanamo Bay prisoners that former President Barack Obama released are now leading the Taliban’s interim government. Back in 2014, the four inmates were swapped for former Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after he deserted his post and was captured by the Taliban.
