Obama’s Administration Calls Military “Liars”

Posted by madjillmom on June 5, 2014

Stuff continues to trickle out about Bowe Bergdahl. Since any official report will be classified, we won’t ever really know. Obama and crew had hoped that this exchange would be hailed as a great thing, thus proving that Obama does care deeply about our military. This was necessitated by the VA scandal, where Obama (once again) appeared too calm and passive and claimed to learn about the issue from the news. Those who served with Bergdahl are saying he was a deserter. The White House doesn’t need this narrative. So now those around Obama are calling those who did serve with Bowe “liars” and “swift boaters”.

Remember who was swift boated. John Kerry. He aggrandized his service, received Purple Hearts for band-aid wounds, and trashed the military when he was out. Those who served with him didn’t want his version of his service to stand unchallenged, so they spoke up. Now Sec. of State John Kerry’s spokeswoman is telling us that only Bowe knows what happened and not those who were also there. Came very close to calling the vets “liars”.

We do need to hear from Bowe. It is good that he is being brought home to his family.

Another concern is Sec. of Def. Chuck Hagel telling us he doesn’t know what happened and we need to reserve judgement. Why doesn’t he know what is in the reports? Why didn’t he warn Obama that this was going to blow up and advise him to avoid the Rose Garden ceremony? Maybe he wasn’t informed that the swap was going to happen.

Did they inform those who went in to pick up Bowe from the Taliban the issues that surround Bowe? Gosh, I hope so, but I am not convinced that they did.

Did Obama know about any of the concerns about Bowe?
