Taking the Rough with the Smooth
I'm generally against these exchanges, as it rewards what amounts to the kidnapping of Israelis by their enemies. It is negotiating with terrorists--a bad idea per se. Criminals released early also have a horrible effect on the releasing society in that justice is not served here hundreds of times (a thousand plus times) over.
The one ray of silver lining is that we now have a concrete example of the relative worth of Jews versus Arabs.
UPDATE: Scott Johnson at Powerline feels the same way.
