WH Official on Bowe Bergdahl’s Possible Desertion: “Frankly, we don’t give a s–t why he left”

Posted by on Jun 01, 2014 at 8:37 am

Who cares if American lives are now more in danger thanks to an illegal prisoner swap? The White House doesn’t give a shit.

Why Bergdahl was captured in the first place remained a mystery by the time high-level US government talks began in 2012 regarding a trade for his release.

“Frankly, we don’t give a s–t why he left,” one White House official said at the time. “He’s an American soldier. We want to bring him home.”

There was fierce debate over exchanging him for the five Taliban combatants. Sen. John McCain, himself a former POW, once described the five as “the five biggest murderers in world history,” according to Rolling Stone.

The White House also doesn’t give a shit who cares. Just imagine what they might give up to free Andrew Tahmoressei from his Mexican captivity:

    I think Sen. McCain must be very poorly informed about historical precedent. Has he never heard of Stalin? Pol Pot? Hitler?

    “He’s an American soldier. We want to bring him home.” There is a very disturbing article in the NY Post about this “soldier”.

    preeeezy left four men to die in Benghazi. He has now left 30,000 plus troops in Afghanistan and around the world as targets for kidnapping.

    Dispicible.

    Obama could not return the Blind Sheik for Chris Stevens, cause he was killed in the kidnapping attempt so he gave his Muslim brothers some of the most important people in the Taliban organization in return for a soldier who deserted his post to join the Taliban. At what point will someone shout treason in Obamas face and march him off to a cell to stand trial?

    Don’t we still have a Marine with PTSD being held in Mexico for taking a wrong turn at the border with a gun the car?

    Of course they don’t. All they care about is scoring political points on the domestic front. That’s it.

    The danger is that this deal could end up blowing up in Obama’s face if Bergdahl turns out to really have been a deserter. We’re probably going to find out, one way or the other.

    From the most transparent regime ever? Boy, are you an optimist…

    Just goes to show how much this administration doesn’t care about those in uniform.

    Odds are that if this guy is shown to be a deserter and collaborator nothing will be done. The entire incident will become nothing more than a CYA for the administration to protect the inept, incompetent, and narcissistic brat safe.

    This “deserter” doesn’t deserve to be called a US soldier & SHOULD be charged for desertion & court marshalled AS Obama too, yet again, putting his arrogance instead of congressional law also needs to be held accountable for his actions in negotiating with terrorist!!! TRANSPARENCY??? Please define the word to the POTUS, his Administration & his devoted, ignorant socialist followers!
    FREE OUR MARINE HELD IN A MEXICAN PRISON!!! Sure there will be no need for ANY negotiations!!!!
