Well, at least they didn’t blame George Bush even though I guaran-damn-tee they tried. Chuck Hagel, how does it feel to tumble under the bus? Good Lawd, whatever you do don’t let Obama look like either the incompetent boob or the insidious destroyer of America’s greatness. Take the fall Chuck. Take the fall. See below from the Daily Mail:
Final approval for the prisoner exchange that freed Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was made by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, members of Congress learned on Monday from administration officials.
‘They indicated (it was) Secretary Hagel (who made the final call),’ Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) said after a classified briefing, ABC points out.
‘It was the president of the United States that came out (in the Rose Garden) with the Bergdahls and took all the credit and now that there’s been a little pushback he’s moving away from it and it’s Secretary Hagel?’
Last week, Hagel said the swap was a unanimous decision when speaking to the BBC.
‘It was the Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Director of National Intelligence, Attorney General,’ he said.
‘It was our judgement based on the information that we had that his life, his health were in peril,’ Hagel also told the channel in defense of not giving Congress 30 days’ notice of the plan.
