Senate Majority leader Reid on Bergdahl prisoner swap/release of Gitmo prisoners: “I’m glad to get rid of these five people.”

That would make sense if, by “getting rid of these people,” Reid had meant that we dragged them out behind the barn and put bullets in their skulls.
But giving them back unharmed to the rest of our enemies so they can return to the battlefield against us?
I don’t really see how that parses out to “getting rid” of them.
