National Security Adviser, Susan Rice is at it again.
This time she says that there is no evidence Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter. I suppose the note he left saying he was, “leaving to start a new life and didn’t want to fight for America” isn’t evidence.
Nor, I suppose is Colonel David Hunt know what he’s talking about when he said,
“Bowe Bergdahl was a deserter. Bergdahl on June 20, 2009 crawled underneath a wire at his fire base with water, food, a change of clothes, a knife and a cell phone. He called his unit the day after he deserted to tell his unit he deserted… Bill, we lost 14 soldiers, killed, searching for a deserter. He left his unit in combat. It’s non-arguable… We don’t know yet if he joined the Taliban or not. But, there’s no question he deserted.”
But the biggest, “Oops!” by Ms. Rice is the fact that Bergdahl DOES face desertion charges. One wonders how she is able to walk with one foot forever in her mouth.
But here she is, in her own words –
Bagdad Bob Susan Rice saying Bergdahl served with honor.
