Skip to comments.Report: White House Accuses Soldiers Who Served with Bergdahl of 'Swift Boating'
Posted on 06/04/2014 6:46:30 AM PDT by don-o
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.

Does Harry Reid know this yet?
Would be fun to send his office an email just to see if he goes with it. LOL! Rush is right...the guy is obsessed with them and exposes how unstable he is.
"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.
As predicted, the side show begins to see which scandal will effectively knock this Burgdahl fiasco off the front page:
Kerry also served with “honor and distinction”
ask the NVA
how long before the WH trots out its own podium-hogging bought and borrowed POW, Juan “Maverick” McPain, to chastise the soldiers who are speaking truth to power?
I give it 3...2...1
the serving troops are obviously straight white Christian bitter clingers who fit the DHS profile of becoming future domestic terrorists
their facebook page probably has become a happy hunting ground for the obama admin
Actually two in his unit are not Swift Boating this piece of trash. They can not Swift Boat him. They are dead. They died looking for him. Also if the reports are accurate a total of 14 men died looking for him. This includes all units involved in the search.
“And where is the military brass to defend these soldiers?”
If you are referring anyone above the rank of 0-6, you will have to get a proctologist to find their heads up the potus’s -—
Swift-boating! These dummiecrats never stop. Truth is truth. Keryy was/is a traitor and this Taliban wanna be is as well.
We are all still waiting for JF Kerry to release his medical records as he promised during the ‘04 campaign.
And whatever happened to that threat of a a libel lawsuit against those who spoke out against him? Gives the impression that the statements given by the SB Vets were true after all.
What a great analogy comparing Bergdahl with Kerry.
However, Bergdahl just walked away and deserted his unit in combat, but Kerry faked three Purple Hearts before he walked away and deserted his unit in combat
So Berghdahl = Kerry / Kerry = Berghdahl
Now I understand...
Enemy. Enemy. Enemy
Enemy. Americans. Enemy
Enemy. Enemy. Enemy
looks like an islamic tic tac toe game
insert america and israel at will
Swift-boating is when critics tell the truth about someones military service when that truth is unhelpful to Democrats
Interesting times sir... Yes, indeed.
Frankly, I'm waiting for another elementary school to be shot up by a maniac to get the attention off this disaster. They've got to do something...!
You're all still my heroes. Especially Interesting Times!
Those were the days, friends...and we're still here giving those who deserve it some swift-kickin' in the you-know-where!
Love to y'all.
Doin' great Abner...miss ya. C'mon down again!
Likewise, it's easy to tell which 'reporters' have their heads farthest up this administration's butt...by who pops the first story from "White House insiders."
Reasonable people listen to both sides and conclude the soldiers have multiples more credibility than the government...IE, the government is lying.
The arrogance of this regime is surpassed only by their tone-deafness. They are shooting themselves in the foot, and I suspect most of the press is smart enough to stay out of the crapstorm.
It's only the dead-enders who try to defend Obama now.
Even friendly pundits have been saying that if Obama is advocating for larger government, he has to show it works.
This regime is the best argument for limited government, and each day brings a fresh example.
Hey Abner. Good to get your “Hi!”.
Hope all is going good for you.
Perhaps we should do a reunion tour!?!
I saw the note. Works for me.
