Feinsten disputes Kerry on safety after Bergdahl deal

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein is disputing Secretary of State John Kerry’s claim Sunday that it’s “baloney” to argue that U.S. troops will be at more at risk in Afghanistan after the swap of five Taliban prisoners for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

“Secretary Kerry made a very strong statement this morning saying, ‘Oh, we have ways, and we will see that they do not defect, move, speak, whatever,’” the California Democrat said in a “Face the Nation” interview on CBS.

“It’s hard to be comfortable when you really haven’t been briefed on the intricacies of carrying out this agreement,” she added.

Feinstein said “we have no information” on how the U.S. will make sure the five Taliban commandos under supervision by Qatar won’t again become agitators.

She said there’s a rumor that one of the Taliban has said he would return to the battlefield.

“It’s a mixed bag at best,” she said.
