(Free Beacon / Worthy News)– Leading lawmakers on Monday called for an immediate investigation into the Obama administration's controversial decision to release from prison five top Taliban leaders in exchange for an American prisoner.

Sen. Lindsay Graham (R., S.C.), in a letter to the Senate Armed Services Committee, requested that an immediate hearing be organized to examine if the Obama administration broke any laws by unilaterally releasing five top Taliban leaders in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who spent five years in captivity.

Graham noted in his letter to Senate Armed Services Committee leaders that the released prisoners are "the hardest of the hard-core."

"The five terrorists released were the hardest of the hard-core," Graham wrote on Monday to Sens. Carl Levin (D., Mich.), the Armed Services Committee's chair, and Jim Inhofe (R., Okla.), its ranking member. "They held positions of great importance within the hard-core anti-American Taliban, including the chief of staff of the Taliban army and the Taliban deputy minister of intelligence."

Obama's decision to release the Taliban leaders appears to run counter to U.S. law, which includes stringent requirements that must be met before a Guantanamo Bay inmate is released.
