Bold, Decisive Leadership: Biden ‘Neutral’ on Taliban-Deserter Swap

Then he asked “What the hell is the Taliban?”

Not even the vice president supported the trade of the Taliban 5 for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. According to a new report, Vice President Joe Biden remained “neutral on the prisoner swap.”

“While Vice President Joe Biden was neutral on the prisoner swap,” Reuters reveals, “Obama and two top White House advisers, then-national security adviser Thomas Donilon and his deputy Denis McDonough, were all in favor, one official said. Donilon resigned a year ago, but McDonough went on to become Obama’s chief of staff.”

It does not appear that Biden has publicly commented on the controversial trade so far.

Maybe they can wake him up and have him smear Bergdahl’s platoon mates.
