I wish just once when we do one of these prisoner exchanges the math would work out.

We traded five terrorists to the Taliban for one American (Bowe Bergdhal).

And traded seven Iranians for four Americans.

It’s irrational but, just once, I’d like the math to be five to four in our favor. Or even four to four – breakeven.

But when it’s seven to four you start wondering, Did we just get snookered? – and then, in the next breath, Donald Trump comes along and says, They got $150 billion plus seven, and we got four. That’s not a good picture.
