Are you friggin' kidding me? 

Things have gotten so hot for Obammy that he has to pawn off the blame on that clueless Hagel?

We truly are in a parody here.

And we're just finding this out now?

Blame the useful idiot, and bleary-eyed Chuckie Hagel is just the idiot they need. 

When will Obama accept Hagel's resignation??  How long till Chuckie has bus tire tread marks across his forehead??

If the White House planned all along on Hagel being the scapegoat for negotiating with terrorists, perhaps they weren't really so surprised at the public outrage over the 5-for-1 swap, after all.

Nonsense. Hagel had to get the OK from the President. Hagel could not give that sort of decision if the White House knew.

Valerie Jarrett gave the "go" call, at least the best that I can guess.  They keep Barry secluded in his own area watching sports, and they send him out to golf or get a cup of coffee once in a while.

seriously?  so when is Obama going to start being president?  to hear it from him, Bush is responsible for everything (because everything is going poorly) even though he's been out of office for 6 years, and now Hagel, one of the president's minions, has acted without presidential authority?  is the White House really tacitly admitting that Obama is so absolutely impotent as this?  Anyone remember the brouhaha when Al Haig, Reagan's Secretary of State, said he was in control immediately after the assassination attempt on Reagan, while Reagan was still in surgery?  Where's the brouhaha now that Obama has himself admitted that Hagel was in fact "in control" of things re: Bergdahl?

Wow.  I'd say this administration is like the Keystone Kops, but the Keystone Kops were funny, and these morons are risking our very lives.  **nononono*
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Susan Rice is the head of the National Security Council.She is invoved in every foreign decision the President makes. She should be up there in front of those committees. I agree that Valerie Jarrett should be up there because she is an advisor to the President.Jarrett is one of three Senior Advisors to President Obama

And Hagel is too frackin' stoopid to see this one coming....serves him right if Obammy throws him overboard once his pants are on fire and his ass is catchin'.......

Another group of people would be the White House Counsel who also signed off on this to explain their legal interpretation.

If he wasn't such an opportunist, I'd feel bad for Hagel.

He's being thrown to the wolves tomorrow, and the WH says he is to blame.  I hope his family members are secure should Chuck decided to be an upstanding American and tell the truth about what happened.

I'm sure he's already been set up with a comfy sinecure courtesy of the deep-pocketed liberals who have propped this charade up along with the MSM all along.

He told the BBC it was a "unanimous decision" last week.

He's testifying tomorrow.
