CNN’s Jake Tapper has been at the center of the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap story since it broke over the weekend. He was the first major reporter to speak to some of Bergdahl’s platoon-mates, who each labeled the just-released prisoner of war a “deserter.” Months earlier, he was lamenting how “undercovered” the story had been on Reliable Sources. As the story continues to be politicized, Tapper took to Twitter ahead of his 4 p.m. ET broadcast Wednesday to clarify some things about his reporting.

Tapper posted this series of tweets on the subject early Wednesday afternoon:

Read the whole thing.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools

-- Rudyard Kipling

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.
-- George Bernard Shaw
