You Know The Soldiers Who Didn’t Desert Like Bergdahl? Obama Just Declared War On THEM…

When now-Secretary of State John Kerry sought the presidency a decade ago, a group of his fellow Vietnam veterans formed an organization that called his military conduct into question.

Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, as they were known, was roundly pilloried by leftists determined to protect the Massachusetts Democrat. In the years since, the same partisan activists have used the term ‘swift boat’ to describe any number of ostensibly disreputable political attacks.

According to MSNBC host Chuck Todd, the White House has now begun referring to accusations made against recently released U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl using the disparaging phrase.

A number of the prisoner of war’s fellow soldiers describe his actions leading up to his 2009 capture by the Taliban as desertion. They claim he made it clear he wanted to leave his platoon during a time of war and begin a new life, explaining he no longer supported the mission and was ashamed to be an American.

Furthermore, reports indicate several members of the military were killed or seriously injured in a subsequent mission to find Bergdahl.

Todd explained in a statement Wednesday that Obama administration insiders are disparaging those who corroborate that narrative, which flies in the face of the official story that Bergdahl was a distinguished soldier captured by America’s enemy in Afghanistan.

“I’ve had a few aides describe it to me as, ‘We didn’t know that they were going to swift boat Bergdahl,’” Todd noted, describing the contention as “some fighting words there.”

In an effort to determine whether the White House correspondent was being hyperbolic in his rhetoric, one Twitter user reached out to confirm the validity of his statement. Todd replied that his comment was intended to be taken literally.

The growing backlash against Bergdahl is hardly limited to those who served with him in 2009. As Western Journalism reported this week, the Army is likely to investigate the circumstance surrounding his disappearance; and military experts conclude the punishment could potentially be a death sentence.

    Amazing isn't it that Obutthole would stick up for a deserter and chastize the soldiers who he put there as liars.The only liar is Obozo himself.According to the way the Obutthole administration does things, is Bergdahl will end up like the coward of Viet Nam Lurch Kerry with a good position.

    Bergdahl is a traitor, by all rights he should be executed, I would love to be the one that pulled the trigger on the bastard.

  3. Wonder how the 4thof July will be this year and whether Bergdahl and his family will be guests of the White House.

  4. Obama wanted to censor anyone who didn't like him when he took office….if I recall correctly, it was even being advertised to turn in your neighbor on the White House website. Obama has censored the media since taking office and he is censoring Bergdahl's comrades. This is not surprising information. His actions continue to become increasingly brazen. It's like he's tempting fate or perhaps….Civil War? If everyone would come forward….journalists, politicians, the military…..all at the same time… would be his end. He deserves impeachment for this.

    It’s a great thing the fellow soldiers spoke out before obama kidnapped them! There is no potential of a cover up this time!
    Congress has still never been able to secretly talk to the Benghazi survivors, because:
    1) they were still involved in the ever ongoing criminal investigation surrounding the attacks which happened 20 months ago (this investigation will only end after obama is out of office), and
    2) it would endanger the lives of the survivors and their families to reveal their identities (congress would hold secret hearings).
    When Graham approached Obama, asking him for more access to survivors, he says he was told to "take a hike,” by obama "I'm not trying to impede a criminal investigation. I'm not looking to figure out who to blame or who to prosecute. I want to hear from the survivors," Graham said. "Can you imagine what Clinton and Obama would be saying if this were the Bush administration denying access to the witnesses? There would be a riot in the street."
