#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – August 21 – The Pentagon broke the law, when it transferred five Taliban detainees from Guantánamo Bay in exchange for prisoner of war Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, according to a report from a government watchdog agency.

The Government Accountability Office said the Pentagon violated the 2014 Defence Appropriations Act, which requires the Pentagon to give certain congressional committees 30 days advance notice before any detainee transfer from the Guantánamo Bay detention facility.
