Just released AP report now circulating. Obama administration officials coming out and saying the reason for the White House illegally failing to notify Congress about the Bergdahl 5 for 1 Taliban exchange, was because the Taliban threatened to kill Bergdahl if the White House leaked the information.
Oh Barack, you big kidder you!
As infuriating it is to know they are lying, yet again, about the Bergdahl boondoggle, it’s actually a bit of good news to see them now attempting such an outlandish and easily corrected version of events.
It means the White House is truly panicking over this.
Congress could have been informed, and that process could have been made classified.
There, end of story. Instead, this White House purposely broke the law and let loose five of the most dangerous terrorists we had in custody in exchange for one soldier who communicated his disgust with the U.S. military and America, and then had six other soldiers killed while trying to retrieve him.
First the White House claimed they had to act quickly for fear of Bergdahl’s health. We then found out that was false. Footage of Bowe Bergdahl leaving Afghanistan showed a relatively well fed, and seemingly strong young man. So now this White House is dropping the “he was really sick and could have died” excuse to one of , “we couldn’t tell anyone or they would kill him.”
