I feel as though I have accidentally stepped into the transporter and been transported to Bizarro world. You have to rub your eyes and read again what is on the screen. I have never seen anything like this in my life.
Jonathan Turley said Obama has become the President Nixon wished he could have been. Maybe, but Nixon would not insult one’s intelligence so baldly as this wretched regime does on a daily basis.
You go out your front door. It’s raining. You’re getting wet.
Obama tells you it’s sunny.
Jen Psaki says it’s sunny.
Jay Carney says it’s sunny.
Marie Hanf says it’s sunny.
You’re soaking wet and it’s raining. It is the predisposition of this execrable administration to promulgate a lie repeatedly and long enough until everyone accepts it as the truth. Goebbels 101.
Not this time. Obama gives dishonesty a bad name but it’s past that. This isn’t just bad. It’s evil. Obama has done a bad thing and is compounding it with layer after layer of offensive actions.
We are in Obama Bizarro world. Up is down, East is West. Bad is now good.
Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his post during a war. That is not in doubt. A local radio host today said his dad told him that had that happened during WWII on a Navy ship that person would not ever see home again. My father, a WWII combat vet, would have said the same thing.
On 2010 the Daily Mail reported that a “captured” US soldier had converted to Islam and was abetting the enemy, teaching ambush skills and bomb making techniques to the Taliban.
That dovetails rather well with the account of one of Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers:
Fuller, who stated that Bergdahl pretty much kept to himself and didn’t socialize with other soldiers, said that attacks on the base increased after Army sergeant left.
“Whenever he went and walked off the base, only stuff that we know, that we trained for, that the sports that we know on vehicles, how are moves are, stuff like that, they were getting hit very precisely,” Fuller explained to Fox News.
“And the ambushes we used, the certain tactics that we used, the Taliban was picking up on those things and the Haqqani network started using the same things as well.
“So they were very precise and very accurate. You could tell it was somebody on the inside that had that info.”
Within days of his disappearance, says Buetow, teams monitoring radio chatter and cell phone communications intercepted an alarming message: The American is in Yahya Khel (a village two miles away). He’s looking for someone who speaks English so he can talk to the Taliban.
“I heard it straight from the interpreter’s lips as he heard it over the radio,” said Buetow. “There’s a lot more to this story than a soldier walking away.”
They were told to keep quiet.
And once Bergdahl was recovered, these soldiers were no longer constrained to be quiet. They wanted to tell the truth about Bergdahl.
And their Commander in Chief sh*ts on them. He chooses to deride and impeach the soldiers who held their posts, who didn’t abandon their brothers, who didn’t desert. In Obama’s Bizarro world, the deserter is the hero.
Obama violated the law he signed into being by not advising Congress of his intentions.
Top members of Congress were briefed more than two years ago about the possibility of exchanging an American soldier held captive by the Taliban for five terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, senior Democrats and Republicans said Tuesday.
In a statement, House Speaker John Boehner said lawmakers raised serious concerns that were never satisfactorily answered about the potential swap involving Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and received assurances from the Obama administration that if a deal were more likely, Congress would be contacted.
Lawmakers weren’t informed until word came this past Saturday of the exchange.
Obama lied. Again, that is.
Obama bypassed Congress because he knew that once they knew all the details they would veto the trade. Twice Congress rejected the swap and without a doubt Obama didn’t tell Congress that Bergdahl was a deserter.
The Pentagon warned against the trade for Bergdahl.
Hillary promised that they’d abide by the law:
Secretary Clinton in a January 13, 2012, letter to the leadership of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees stated: “I want also to make clear that any transfer from Guantanamo will be undertaken after consultation with Congress and pursuant to all legal requirements for transfers, including those spelled out in the FY2012 Defense Authorization Act.”
The outpouring of idiocy from the Obama regime is mindboggling.
State Department spokesperons Marie Hanf claims the soldiers who served with Bergdahl and were witness to the his desertion weren’t qualified to opine on it.
Those who were abandoned by Bergdahl are accused by the White House of “swiftboating” Bergdahl.
It is distressing but not unexpected that Barack Obama would crap on those American soldiers who did not abandon their posts and did not abet the enemy in favor of the deserter who did. This country has no obligation to “rescue” anyone who walks away as Bergdahl did.
Much less make him a hero and trash those who didn’t shame their country. I’ve never seen anything like this.
Barack Obama has lost his mind.
Obama doesn’t give himself enough credit for “what he’s done around the world.”
If you listen closely you can hear the reporters giggling.
Another Obama aide suggests Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers (the ones who stayed at their posts) are “psychopaths.”
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Brandon Friedman, has been tweeting that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may deserve “sympathy” because of the possibility that “his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership.”
If that were the case, he argues, “the soldiers in his platoon would have all the more reason to smear him publicly now.”
