@BFriedmanDC Hey guy, what happened to your bio?
7:44 AM - 5 Jun 2014
When Brandon Friedman took to Twitter to plant the seeds for another attack on Bowe Bergdahl’s whistle-blowing platoon mates, his bio proudly announced his role as deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
“What if [Bergdahl's] platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership?” he tweeted, before calling for everyone to “withhold judgment” about allegations that Bergdahl deserted. “I’m not a fan of such speculation,” he added. Uh huh.
And then Friedman scrubbed his Twitter bio. Here’s the Google cache from Jun 3, 2014:
Here’s how it appears now, after his “blame the platoon” tweets:
The Twitter bio still links to Friedman’s Tumblr “About” page, which includes his work for HUD, the Department of Veterans Affairs and VoteVets.org, as well as his U.S. Army service.
