President Obama has finally done it! He’s united both the left and right of our nation in agreement. Both sides agree that the White House is lying about the danger that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may have been in!
The chief argument from the White House about the need to trade Bergdahl for five of the most dangerous terrorists in Gitmo has been that Bergdahl was in immediate danger. However, according to Senators Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), there doesn’t seem to be any evidence to corroborate this story from the Obama administration.
Chambliss also questioned the White House’s claim that the reason they exchanged five high-level Taliban members being held at Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl without notifying Congress was because the sergeant’s health was declining rapidly.
“Well, no intelligence supported that. And now, they come back and because he is in decent health, considering where he’s been, they’ve changed their story. They said, ‘Well, no, we suspected his life might be in danger, if word got out of this pending, possible trade then his life may be in danger,’” Chambliss explained to CBS News. “Again, I can just tell you there is no intelligence to support that … the whole scenario surrounding this is very, very strange.”
“No, I don’t think there was a credible threat, but I don’t know. I have no information that there was.”
