On the Bergdahl for 5 Taliban leaders swap… recycled answers
Congress was brought in to see a “proof of life” video from December 2013 (that’s 6 months ago) that was the basis of the need to rush this swap without a 30 day notice.
I don’t know which is worse… their math, or the decision to blame a video again.
And they sent out Susan Rice to tell obvious whoppers on Sunday?
What the heck, are we in summer re-runs already?
Seriously, Harry Reid even broke out “What difference does it make”.
I’m envisioning the White House staff sitting around with a Magic 8 ball that gives them answers to use in a scandal:
First Susan Rice makes Sunday talk shows (that always goes well) claiming Bergdahl “served honorably and with distinction”.
[You know, except that whole capital offense desertion thing.]
Next… wet-behind-the-ears State Dept wench Marie Harf, who was maybe in elementary when the WTC fell arrogantly suggests the people in Bergdahl’s platoon are not a reliable source of information about what happened.
Then Obama’s staffers whined about “swiftboating” when reality messed up their rose garden photo op where a deserter was treated as a returning hero.
Now we have Brandon Friedman, deputy assistant secretary of public affairs at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, suggesting Bergdahl’s platoon mates, who inconveniently spilled the truth about Bergdahls “capture” and/or defection… might just be psychos.
So as you can see, the Obama administration continues to violate not only the laws of the country, but the first law of holes:
FIRST RULE OF HOLES “When you find yourself in one…STOP DIGGING”.
By the way, I DO recognize what they’re shoveling. I’ve got horses.
If you need a gauge by which to test Obama’s Arrogance
Consider the fact that as we hit the anniversary of the event she is famous for lying thru her teeth about… O dispatched Susan Rice to tell congress what is REALLY happening in Syria.
Susan Rice? Her integrity is not “questionable”, it’s non-existent.
Of course in this administration that not only NOT a vice, when coupled with undying loyalty for The Boy King it is grounds for promotion to a cabinet position. Fortunately for Ms Rice, the title “National Security Adviser” goes for exactly 30 pieces of silver.
