Bowe Bergdahl, who had been held captive for five years in Afghanistan, in exchange for the transfer and release of five individuals held by Americans in Guantanamo Bay on May 31, 2014. Senate Resolution 469 resolves that the May 31, 2014, transfers of five detainees from the US Naval Station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Qatar violated the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2014. That Act directs the Secretary of Defense to notify the appropriate Congressional committees at least 30 days before a detainee is transferred or released from the US Naval Station in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  The notification should have included a detailed explanation, including why the transfer or release is in the national security interests of the United States, and a description of any actions taken to mitigate the risks of reengagement by the individual to be transferred or released. In addition, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 stipulates that appropriated funds related to Guantanamo Bay detainees must be used in accordance with the NDAA.
