” John Ekdahl @JohnEkdahl Follow If confirmed, this would be a bit of a game-changer. 9:52 AM - 3 Jun 2014”

That’s putting it mildly.

If this report from Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin is true, the Bergdahl affair just got a whole lot stickier:

“Jenna Lee @Jennafnc Follow Great reporting from @JenGriffinFNC - new report: Berghdal left behind a note renouncing American citizenship...developing... 9:43 AM - 3 Jun 2014”

“David Shor @IshYimini Follow

OMG. https://twitter.com/jennafnc/status/473852493286633472 … he left us behind. This is a game changer. He should be happy we didn’t drone him. 9:53 AM - 3 Jun 2014”

I wonder why they didn’t ask Hillary if she knew of the “exchange” in advance and if it was discussed at her White House meeting last week.

Elian Gonzalez cost Gore Florida in 2000. Hopefully, this will hurt Hillary’s chance in 2016

She probably had no choice at that meeting last week. The imbeciles probably blurted it out intentionally as an aside.

This would deny her the plausible deniability defense if she decides to throw Obama under the bus during her run up to the presidency...

If Republicans had any leadership at all, Hillary’s comments would just another example of her ineptitude and would be used to further discredit her as a potential leader of this nation.

....If Republicans had an leadership, that is.

Benghazi shows Hillary’s decision making prowess.

At least here, she is telling us what bad decisions she would make as president.

“Barack; my advisors have agreed that our plan to trade Bergdahl for terrorists is a good plan. Just like we thought, when the Benghazi Committee starts asking us about dealing with terrorists, we can just say we do it all the time and do it for the good of the country. We just have to convince enough dummies to believe that.”

Clinton said she did not second-guess people who make such tough decisions, but said the American tradition of caring for its citizens and soldiers was a “noble” one.

“This young man, whatever the circumstances, was an American citizen — is an American citizen — was serving in our military,” Clinton said. “The idea that you really care for your own citizens and particularly those in uniform, I think is a very noble one.”

She added that she understood regrets about the deal but that the Obama administration feared Bergdahl wouldn't survive much longer. She described it as an example of the “hard choices” in government that is also the title of her forthcoming book.

This woman and her staff of wordsmiths are so frustratingly detestable. That they can spin this as caring about an American citizen.....well, that is as phony as the Benghazi consulate attack was caused by a internet video.
God I hate this woman and all she represents. Please God take her and cast her and her sycophant supporters to the depths of Hell!

Didn’t Obama and Hillary drone to death an American citizen, turned Taliban? That was pretty noble.

Good that Hillary is making a statement because this thing is turning sour, fast. I would like it very much for her to EAT her words on this.

How stupid can a group of people be? I mean stupid, like a goat.

Hillary was in on the ‘sluts and nuts’ attacks on women her husband abused. Her comments aren’t worth crap on anything to do with ethics.

Personally I’ll settle for just keeping her out of out of the White House in 2017.

She’s comparing this bonehead act of treachery with how badly she screwed the pooch pardoning the Puerto Rican terrorists when pandering for their votes for the Sin-it.

“This young man, whatever the circumstances, was an American citizen — is an American citizen — was serving in our military,” Clinton said.

So was Benedict Arnold. I wonder why no reporter calls these people out.

Yeah, I already know the answer, but it's just so infuriating.

Bergdahl left a note behind when he deserted renouncing his American citizenship. That makes him an enemy combatant.

It’s a “hard choice but a right decision” only if your goal is 100% political - to get the VA scandal off the front pages at all costs.
