White House Administration official apologizes for tweets suggesting Bergdahl platoon 'psychopaths' Published June 05, 2014 FoxNews.com
WASHINGTON An Obama administration official apologized Thursday after suggesting on Twitter that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahls platoon might have been filled with psychopaths in an apparent attempt to defend Bergdahl against criticism from his fellow soldiers.
Brandon Friedman, deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, sent out a series of tweets Wednesday night questioning those soldiers trying to smear Bergdahl for abandoning his post in 2009.
The first said: Here's the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership?

As Michael Savage says: "Liberalism is a mental disorder"
Why so long in the face Friedman?
My advice to Brandon Friedman: Kill yourself to regain lost honor.
I thought Brandon Friedman was a Nazi sympathizer and a pedophile.
He never said any different....
Will Time Magazine continue to publish his pieces (he had something run Jun 3, 2014 about the VA)?
Where is the rebuke?
Will he be condemned by VoteVets.org, the Democrat organization he was vice-chair of in 2008?
Apologies are easy to say. What is hard to change is the personality behind that preciously smug little grin.
This guy, of course, is the sort who prospers in the culture of the Federal establishment, which speaks poor of both the establishment and the man.
In any normal administration, this mutt would have been allowed to resign - immediately - or be fired.
He even looks like a weasel!
Whatever happened to, 'I screwed up, and obviously had my head up my ass when I composed that tweet'.
Even when some political critter makes the most egregious comments, at best we get these mealy-mouthed half-apologies...
"...choosing inappropriate language that many view as disparaging to U.S. service members.." [translation: 'not that it was actually disparaging, but many of the unwashed, knuckle-dragging, clingers might take it in such a way']
"...That was certainly not my intent..." [right]
"...I apologize to those with whom I work in the Administration, at HUD, and, most importantly, to any service members who took offense". [no qualifiers on his apology to his fellow political critters, but a pseudo-apology to those thin-skinned service members who took offense]
White guy working for HUD? No honor to regain in the first place.
Just another butt pirate with a cheesy no-work day job which allows him to pursue his nocturnal activities in the gayest city in the US:
My GAYDAR is off the charts!! What an ASS!
Too late, idiot.
Win win then.
He thinks he’s regaining something, and we won’t have to deal with his idiocy afterwards.
and now their ideological issue copy their bratty. disgusting habit and think it's like, cool, dude.
I also recognized the apologetic, non-apology for unintended offenses related to the specific verbiage that was used for those who took offense or interpreted his tweet in the most contemptible manner.
This a$$bag grins himself to sleep at night, oblivious to his embarrassing contribution to the human race while arrogantly deceiving himself about his own worth, intellect and significance. If douche bags could talk, he’d hide them in his colon.
I don’t trust anybody who compulsively grins all the time. We know it’s just a mask hiding some serious unhappiness and self-loathing inside. Yet they want everybody else to think they’re much happier than we are. His eyes aren’t grinning at all, though.
Dudes been gagging on giggle pins since he was 12...
Guy is a duck walkin punk...
Tom Lantos: “At least Admiral Boorda committed suuuiciiide...”
Obviously by calling Bergdahl’s platoon-mates ‘psychopaths’ he was just trying to urge people not to jump to conclusions.
Related to Jay Carney and Baghdad Bob!
All spokesliars are from the same tribe.
You are assuming that he might have had honor at one time. You might be assuming too much. Other than that, you have a valid point.
Actually hoping he’d assume he was regaining it.
Were there any in his unit that refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement?
If so where are they?
