Permit me to rephrase:

Are prisoners exchanges a good idea, or should we give out, say, oh I don't know, 1500 missiles instead?

Prisoner exchanges are not a bad idea, if you break even or better in the deal.
In the hypothetical case of being a useless sack whose chief metric for success is "winning the news cycle", you can buy a look of Brooklyn Bridges and feel like you're "winning".

I see, so it depends on who is making the deal?

What does "break even" mean in this context?

We don't negotiate with terrorists I forget who said that...

You tell me. For all your accusations of close-mindedness, I'm trying to keep an open one here, and find some value in Obama's latest effort.
