Obama Official: Bergdahl “Worthy of Sympathy” if He Joined Taliban to Protest “Psychopath” Platoon Leaders


Here we go. The bashing continues against the military. This man should lose his job. Will he? Of course not. Apparently the administration was shocked that Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers spoke out. Did they really think they would be Obamabots?  We have this first balloon:

Breitbart:

First we have:  On Wednesday’s “Today Show,” NBC’s senior White House correspondent Chuck Todd reported that “a few [White House] aides describe it to me as ‘we didn’t know that they were going to Swift Boat Bergdahl.’”Chuck Todd: White House Aides Accuse Vets of ‘Swift Boating …In a later tweet, Todd didn’t dispute that the White House used the derogatory term “swift boat” to “describe Bergdahl’s platoon reaction.”.An Obama administration official has floated the idea that Bowe Bergdahl was justified in deserting his platoon in Afghanistan and joining the Taliban over disagreements with the platoon’s leadership.

Now today:

Brandon Friedman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs for the Department of Housing and Urban Development posted a series of tweets Wednesday evening. (He joined the Obama administration in 2009 at the Veterans Administration. Left in 2012 and rejoined the administration at HUD in 2014)

Friedman speculated that Bergdahl deserted over bad leadership of his platoon and that is why his fellow soldiers were smearing him.

Here’s the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership? (1/5)
11:44 PM – 4 Jun 2014

Here are his tweets defending deserter Bergdahl:

Here’s the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership? (1/5)

What if he grew disillusioned with what he saw, didn’t trust his leadership, and walked off? Legal? No. Worthy of sympathy? Maybe. (2/5)

If that were the case, the soldiers in his platoon would have all the more reason to smear him publicly now. (3/5)

Given other examples, it’s not out of the realm of possibility–and more reason to withhold judgment until after an investigation. (4/5)

I’m not a fan of such speculation, but this story could not be more unbalanced–with so many premature calls of “traitor.” (5/5)

    I don’t think his mates were nuts. They sound very lucid to me.

    Then again, POTUS prissy pants would not know the difference. He’s got to be the biggest pansy ass I have ever seen or heard.

    I think the Admin is trying to keep its head above water with strategies like this. They figure they have no chance in convincing individuals who educate themselves on the military and foreign affairs, so they target the fashion and pop culture enthusiasts who will buy into whatever is said. Sadly, just one of those cancels my vote out in every election.

    Isn’t that the MO of this Admins. (and the global world’s system) ‘play and toy’ with people’s emotions – get the ‘sympathy’ level up and bend them accordingly. Similar to heating and bending iron, glass or plastic!
    Besides, traitor-psychopaths are kind’red’ spirits – in this fallen world, like weeds more will rise up and flourish. That ‘mindset’ is taught to the teachers who teach the teachers who teach this generation. [Another good reason to believe God (KJV) and not the liar!]
