WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Danger, violence, and double-cross. In her exclusive, war reporter Alex Quade, reveals the original story behind the Special Operations Forces' capture of one of the Taliban-5. See her video special at: www.alexquade.com. Alex Quade persuaded the elite Operators to go on the record, assess the "high risk" detainee's exchange for POW, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl; and whether the released Taliban leader will attack U.S. interests again.
One highly decorated Green Beret who originally helped capture him, is now a counterterrorism head, who worked behind the scenes on the recent exchange. The senior Special Forces officer tells Alex of detainee Mullah Muhammad Fazl's release from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; and assesses the government of Qatar's ability to hold Fazl under the one year travel ban. Former Special Operations "Horse Soldiers" share details with Alex, you've never heard before.
