White House: ‘No evidence’ Bergdahl fraternized with Taliban
thehill.com ^ | 6/5/14 | Justin Sink

Posted on 06/06/2014 8:06:05 AM PDT by ColdOne

A senior White House aide said Thursday he had seen “no evidence” to confirm a report that rescued Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl converted to Islam, fraternized with the Taliban, and declared jihad during nearly five years of captivity.

“We have seen no evidence of that,” deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken told CNN when asked about a Fox News report about Bergdahl’s conduct while imprisoned by the Taliban.

Just the fact that they find it necessary to respond to this tells me they're lying.

So I guess they don’t read their own private security reports like James Rosen does. What a crock.

Why would the White House make such an outrageous public lie? It is a distraction. It is to put our focus on Bergdahl. Let Bergdahl have his day in court. There is overwhelming evidence that he is, at a minimum, a deserter. At most, Bergdahl is a traitor. But it doesn’t matter.

It will not change the fact that Obama broke the law (impeachable offense)

It will not change the fact that Obama negotiates with terrorists (impeachable offense).

It will not change the fact that Obama has released five very dangerous terror leaders back into the war (impeachable offense)

It will not change the fact that Obama has violated NATO agreements (very bad judgement)

If Obama had made the same trade to get Col. Oliver North back, it would be just as outrageous.

But! But! The taliban said that they let him carry his own AK. And, it was even loaded.

Are the taliban lying?

You will notice that not one word has been reported out of the mouth of Bergdahl himself. Not even a quote about a thank you to his “liberators”.

Just crickets.

Those are the loudest crickets I have ever heard.

His silence speaks volumes.

Or ours. 25 years of Prosecuting isn’t wrong. You WAIT for the facts not the noise from the event.

This could go VERY badly ... for either side.

Actually, I think it's hilarious watching Obama and his handlers try to spin everything about Bergdahl. Caught them all off guard when even Democrats and the puppy dog media began asking questions. They actually expected Obama to be hailed a hero by one and all and were totally unprepared for all the fallout.

I have to go out and buy more popcorn. This is getting good.

Every single day the cascade of outright lies continues. Eventually even the dumbest of the dumb will realize that everything these people say is a lie.

When no one believes a single word coming from the administration of the US, we will have reached a very dangerous time. That time is fast approaching.

Problem is the Obama worshippers will rationalize the lies as a necessary step because the Repubs won't get out of the way of progress.

If the White House is all about closing GTMO, then if they are successful the Taliban will release Bergdahl's conversion video and get the last laugh.

Folks, we have a Low Information White House. (LIWH)

Sad, but true.

Yup. It's been said here before: Obastard could gut a dog and BBQ it during a live press conference, and the obamabots would continue to support him. He could probably even do that to a person and they would not care...

Some people will never be convinced.

If we have reached the point where a large minority, even 30-40% don't care that the White House has zero credibility, the republic is finished.
