State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said that while the US doesn’t make concessions to terrorists, there are “certain circumstances,” like Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, where the policy is different on Thursday’s “New Day” on CNN.
During a discussion on Jordan’s work to free one of its pilots who had been taken hostage by ISIS, she stated, “our view and our position as the united states government is that we don’t make concessions to terrorists. Now there are certain circumstances, and you’ve been talking a little bit about Bowe Bergdahl this morning, where he was a member of the military, someone who had volunteered to serve his country, and we don’t leave our men and women behind. We took steps to bring him home”
