White House Accuses Soldiers Who Served with Bergdahl of ‘Swift Boating’

Chuck Todd, while being questioned by Matt Lauer on the Today show, commented that the White House, caught off guard by the severe backlash of trading 5 dangerous terrorists for a probable deserter, described soldiers that served in Bergdahl‘s platoon as “Swift Boaters.”

Chuck Todd told Matt Lauer on Wednesday that the White House was “caught flat-footed” on the backlash against the prisoner swap for Sergeant Bergdahl.

“I’ve had a few aides describe it to me as ‘we didn’t know that they were going to Swift Boat Bergdahl’,” Todd said, “And Matt, of course, that’s a reference to that political fight back in 2004 over John Kerry’s military service which became so controversial in that campaign. So there’s some fighting words there.”

Earlier in the segment, Richard Engel reported on the controversy, playing a video of a mother whose son died searching for Bergdahl. “He’s getting the royal treatment,” she says, “and our kids came home, the ones of us who lost our sons, they came home in the baggage part of an airplane and were rolled out in a box with a flag.”

The allegation of desertion against Bergdahl is nothing new.  Michelle Malkin reported 5 years ago that there were reports that he had “walked off the base.”  As more soldiers that served with Bergdahl come forward you’ll see an even more frantic White House and their media lapdogs attempt to shield The Precious™ from any blame.

The sad fact is that 6 good men died while searching for an AWOL Bergdahl that had become disillusioned with the military, and another two died in raids against military bases in the subsequent days following his abandonment.  

PFC Matthew Martinek; 2LT Darryn Andrews; PFC Morris Walker; Staff SGT Clayton Bowen; Staff SGT Kurt Curtiss; Staff SFT Michael Murphrey; PFC Justin Casillas; and PFC Aaron Fairbairn died as a result of Bergdahl’s actions.

These are the men that should be remembered as serving with honor and distinction, Ambassador Rice, not Bowe Bergdahl.

    The ‘sad fact’ of these soldiers deaths that this article mentions, is, in fact, not a fact. Right from the beginning there have been conflicting stories about these alleged soldiers from the actual count, was it 6 or 8, to whether or not their deaths were actually attributed to exclusively searching for Bergdahl or from the usual ravages of fighting a war. In addition, there have been stories about the lax protocol there and that Bergdahl had, in fact, left base before his disappearance but had always returned, so when he left this last time, it was not something out of character for him or any of the soldiers there.

    Now with additional investigation and research, it has come to pass that these soldiers did not die during patrols exclusive to searching for Bergdahl, after all. That’s all propaganda. Political republican hype.

    The republicans were all for bringing Bergdahl home (and many had publically written Welcome Home messages for the POW) and were, in fact, bashing Obama for not acting quickly enough, but swiftly changed their stance to outrage when the president finally brought Bergdahl home. It is glaringly apparent the recent republican change of heart from benevolence to outrage is one based from personal, scurrilous hatred for the president and the antagonism from the republican support base originates from a sheeple echo chamber.

    The republicans are again using lies and American deaths for political gain, just like they have been with Benghazi.
