Hagel Doesn’t Know of Any Soldiers Killed in Search for Sgt. Bergdahl

5 June 2014 / 40 Comments

 
The phrase is ‘plausible deniability.’    ‘President’ Obama has gotten very good at it, and it seems to work for him – even when it’s proven that he DID know whatever it is that he denies knowing.   Maybe it will work for Chuck Hagel, as the ‘high-level investigation’ into the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl’s disappearance come to light.

The Hill – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that he didn’t know of any troops who had died in the search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, amid a growing controversy over whether the former Taliban prisoner deserted his unit.

“I do not know of specific circumstances or details of U.S. solders dying as a result of efforts to find and rescue Sgt. Bergdahl,” Hagel said at a press conference in Brussels, Belgium, where he met with NATO defense ministers, Reuters reported.


Bergdahl’s release sparked controversy after the Obama administration’s decision to swap him for five Taliban commanders being held in the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and critics have raised questions about his actions. Some of Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers have said in recent days that he deserted his unit in Afghanistan before he disappeared and soldiers died searching for him.

Hagel’s remarks come a day after the Army announced it would launch a high-level investigation into the circumstances of Bergdahl’s 2009 disappearance, but only after his medical condition improves.

Schmuck Hagel needs to get out more - or check out this new-fangled thingey called the internet. The names and faces of the men killed because of Bergdahl's defection are all over the place.

Chuck the Shmuck must believe those 6 people killed trying to find Bergdahl were looking for someone else named Bowe Bergdahl.  It is a rather common name, after all. :thud:
