What are your thoughts on the Bergdahl hostage exchange?

“There’s good and bad with it. We had to give up five hardened criminals for someone who might be a deserter.”

Martin McLean, Schuyler Lake, Farmers’ Museum staff

“I don’t agree with it. It will only encourage more hostage taking if it lets bad guys be released.”

R.C. Wrobel, Jordanville, retired

“I’m opposed to it. This is the same thing Obama has been doing all along, acting on his own.”

Dan Fullington, East Meredith, retired

“It’s a mixed bag. A lot of people are saying that it’s good he’s home, but other people have said that Obama has acted inappropriately since he didn’t notify congress.”

Bobby Sharp, Oneonta, business owner

“I think it’s good he’s back, but unfortunate we had to give up five guys to get one back.”

Michael Bivona, Oneonta, SUNY Oneonta staff

“It’s always good to get an American service member returned.”

Tara Bivona, Oneonta, SUNY Oneonta staff
