Does the U.S. negotiate with terrorists?
The Taliban in Afghanistan is offering to exchange the only known U.S. prisoner of war - Seargant Bowe Bergdahl for five detainees at Guantanamo Bay prison.
Previous talks about a possible exchange stalled back in 2012.
The Taliban is classified by the U.S. as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Entity. And many U.S. officials also say that peace talks between the U.S. and the Taliban will likely be held "in the next few days."
Will President Obama make a deal?

There is dramatic new video tonight of the civilian cargo plane crash that killed seven Americans on Monday just moments after taking off from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
We want to warn our viewers, the video is disturbing.
The crash was captured via dash cam video by a U.S. contractor who was driving in the area. Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the deadly crash, but according to officials, the plane was carrying tons of equipment, including vehicles and other cargo as the U.S. military begins pulling out of Afghanistan.

There are concerns the Taliban may be seeking revenge after Prince Harry revealed he killed Taliban fighters during his helicopter missions Afghanistan.
"Take a life to save a life that's what we sort of revolve around I suppose, if the people are trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game," Harry said.
Prince Harry's tour of duty is over.

Who's calling the shots? President Barck Obama, or Afghan President Hamid Karzai?
Obama's mixed messages as to when U.S. troops might come home from America's longest war in Afghanistan raise more questions.
Here's what Obama said today after meeting with Karzai in Washington:
"We've already reduced our presence in Afghanistan to roughly 66,000 U.S. troops. I've pledged we'll continue to bring our forces home at a steady pace. And in the coming months, I'll announce the next phase of our drawdown, a responsible drawdown that protects the gains our troops have made," Obama said.
The decision is "months away". Let's rewind just one month. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said then to troops in Kuwait: "The size of that enduring presence is something that the president is going to be considering over these next few weeks"
Weeks. Not months. Over a month ago.
So how about two months ago?
Speaking about the troop count decision - Secretary Panetta told reporters in November: "My hope is that we will be able to complete this process in the next few weeks."
Two months ago it was "weeks." Four weeks after that, still "weeks." And now, it's "months"?
