Appearing on the Today Show this morning, Chuck Todd reports that, in response to allegations of possible desertion by Bowe Bergdahl, White House sources are accusing the soldiers that served with him of "swift boating." Prior to the allegations made by those who served with Bergdahl, White House national security advisor Susan Rice had said Bergdahl served with "Honor and distinction." From the transcript of the Today Show:
Every [White House] aide I've talked to said they expected there to be controversy involving the decision to release five members of the taliban from gitmo, and the fact that this would then escalate that debate, which has been simmering for a good five years, which is what to do with those detainees, how do you release them, where do you release them. They did not expect this backlash on bergdahl himself. I've had a few aides describe it to me as we didn't know that they were going to swift boat Bergdahl. And that's a reference to that political fight back in 2004 over john kerry's military service, so there's some fighting words there.

IOW, telling the truth.
MARK HEMINGWAY is the author. Bergdahl was supposed to be keyword.
“IOW, telling the truth. “
I guess it’s a viewpoint issue. I see Swiftboating as a good thing.
Telling the truth about Democrat faux war heroes.
Well yeah; Swift boating is when a radical is exposed as a fraud by his former military comrades.
Yep.....”Swift Boating” = Telling the Truth!
Bass turds. The Obama regime’s latest “In Your Face” to America.
So all those guys are lying? Right......! What possible reason would all those guys have to lie about one their own?
Right... Let's make sure that when the term 'swift boating' is used, it is done with a clear definition of what it actually means.
It is what it is.
The Koch Brothers.
It would be laughable, this dog whistle style of communication, if it were not somehow effective with the useful idiots.
“IOW, telling the truth.”
Precisely. Nothing else is quite as unforgivable in modern America as speaking the truth.
Bwawwwwwwwwwwwa! Of course it’s those evil Koch Brothers! You know I was not really aware of the Koch brothers until they started living rent free in Reid’s head.
But of course. What else have they got?
In an effort to save face from the enormous negative fallout from this latest blunder have thus far failed.
The further this administration and it's minions push, the angrier the public is getting. Any shred of credibility remaining within this administration continues to hemmorage.
Odds are, another scandal is already in the works to relieve political pressure. Or perhaps, they'll relent and allow the msm to resurrect some 'new'(withheld) details about F&F or the IRS scandal or Extortion 17, or ...take your pick.
***we didn’t know that they were going to swift boat Bergdahl***
Of course they didn’t know. This administration has shown no interest in knowing anything about our military, or any number of topics.
Even if O had been told repeatedly, he would have ignored it, because he views himself as superior in every way. This is why he “learns about” important things from watching the news on TV.
