U.S. Sec. Of Defense Hagel: I Was Pressured By The White House To Release Guantanamo Detainees'

CNN: Hagel: Gitmo transfers caused friction with some at White House

Update: Hagel Says White House Disagreed With His Slow Pace of Releases of Guantanamo Detainees -- ABC News

WNU Editor: He is the U.S. official that must sign-off on their release .... and it looks for some of these released detainees ... especially the Taliban 5 that were released for Bergdahl .... it gave him pause. But the bottom line is that he did sign-off on their release .... instead of resigning on a matter of principle ... and it looks like he now has some doubts.

Hindsight being 20/20 they dumped him anyway. He might as well stuck to his gins and been publicly forced out over such an issue.

He would have been gone a few months sooner but he could live with it longer.
