As reported yesterday, people close to the White House and Obama administration officials are bringing out the claws to attack former members of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's platoon as they continue to speak out and expose Bergdahl as a deserter and possible traitor. At this point, six former members of Bergdahl's platoon have come forward to condemn his actions of walking off base five years ago. Not a single man from his team has come forward to defend him or hail him as a hero. That exposure had lead to a smear campaign from the highest levels of government.
Yesterday Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development Brandon Friedman suggested publicly that the platoon might be full of "psychopaths." Officials at the White House told reporters President Obama was being "swift boated."
Last night on the Kelly File, platoon members not only rejected the accusations, but further exposed Bergdahl's actions. They all said they want to see him given a court martial.
The Obama administration is more than willing to question the integrity of the men who served with Bergdahl, but not the integrity of Bergdahl himself. After all, White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice said Bergdahl served his country with "honor and distinction," and President Obama says he will issue no apologies. It really is unbelievable.
