The White House is now accusing those that served with Bergdahl of “swift-boating” and attacking their credibility. Check this out according to The Washington Examiner:
White House aides have accused members of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl‘s unit of “swift-boating” the 28-year-old Idahoan for claiming that he deserted his post in Afghanistan nearly five years ago, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd reported.
“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 Wednesday.
The term “swift-boating” comes from 2004 when members of then-Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry‘s Swift Boat unit came forward during the election to accuse him of misleading American voters about his service in Vietnam.
