Hey Chuck: No Pallets Of Cash, No Swap For Five Taliban Generals

Daily, for the moment, is live blogging the release of three Americans freed by North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.  Lara Keay is reporting Sen. Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor this morning, “The release of the three detained American citizens was no great accomplishment” and that President Trump was weakening foreign policy by exalting the release.
"I worry that this president, in his eagerness to strike a deal, and get the acclaim and a photo op, will strike a quick one and a bad one, not a strong one, not a lasting one" with North Korea. 
The images of Otto Warmbier returning to the United States on a stretcher and dying a few days later as a result of being tortured by the North Koreans hung heavy over yesterday's North Korean prisoner release. No one is talking about Bowe Bergdahl. It cost the U.S. five high-value terrorists to get him back. It seems, so far, to have cost us nothing to rescue three Korean-American citizens.
Perhaps “Chuckles” Schumer should check in with his minions at CNN, who rather astonishingly reported, “Just maybe, the extraordinary scene that unfolded in the dead of night on an airfield outside Washington early Thursday is the start of something truly historic.”
