Sister of Soldier Killed Searching for Bergdahl: Trade Was ‘a Slap in the Face’

The more that comes out about this trade, the worse of an idea it was.

The story of Bowe Bergdahl is also the story of six soldiers killed seeking a man who may have intentionally walked into the arms of the Taliban. Krisa Murphrey, whose brother, Staff Sergeant Michael Murphrey, was killed on a mission reports have linked to the Bergdahl search, tells Breitbart News the swap was “ridiculous.”

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Murphrey expresses anger over the Obama administration’s decision to release five high-ranking Taliban officials to free Bergdahl. “I felt a little angry about the whole exchange,” she explains. “I do feel like eventually at some point Bergdahl should have come home, but the trade they made for him was farfetched,” Murphrey said, “especially for a guy that just walked off and deserted his unit.”

Murphrey, whose husband is also serving in the military, told Breitbart News that her objections were not to Bergdahl’s family but to administration officials’ handling of the situation. “We are praying for the families whose loved ones were involved,” she said for herself and her family, adding, “our family does not blame Bergdahl for my brother’s death. That was my brother’s job, and he loved it… even if it was a mission about Bergdahl, my brother would have fulfilled it.”
