State Dept. Says Soldiers who Served with Bergdahl and Claim he’s a Deserter are LYING

State Department Jen Psaki must have needed a breather after trying to explain away the ridiculous decision to swap a deserter for five top Taliban fighters. Psaki said Bergdahl wasn’t a deserter. One day later, Psaki’s deputy, Marie Harf accused soldiers who served with Berdahl and said he was a deserter, are liars.

In this exchange between Megyn Kelly and Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.), check out the reaction of Peters after watching Harf say that soldiers who served with Bergdahl and watched him desert are not reliable sources (h/t GWP):

This is clearly a scandal of the Obama administration’s making, based on an absurd political calculation it thought it could get away with. MSNBC’s Chuck Todd, himself a White House ventriloquist dummy, made an interesting and somewhat explosive charge while discussing the fallout from all of this. If he’s right, the administration is clearly very desperate and has chosen to double down despite the horse being out of the barn on this one.

We have to start with the premise that the Department of Defense and the White House knew the truth about Berdgahl. At this point, that truth is out and indisputable. According to Todd’s own words, the administration thought that it could craft a message and control a narrative that Bergdahl is deserving of a hero’s welcome. While Todd doesn’t say it, he’s essentially conceding that the White House thought it could lie to the American people about Berdgahl and actually manipulate events so that Bergdahl’s release could help them. At one point, Todd says the administration expected ‘euphoria’ over the release:

That revelation also says something else – a distraction from Benghazi and the VA scandal. As reported, the release of the five Taliban prisoners very well could be about an international agenda involving Syria but domestically, Bergdahl’s release was clearly meant to do at least three things:

1.) Show that the Obama administration doesn’t leave men behind (Benghazi neutralizer).
2.) Show that the Obama administration does care about its veterans (VA neutralizer).
3.) Suck up all the media oxygen being taken up by VA and Benghazi.

All of that fits a pattern of convenient coincidences that were likely intentional distractions whenever scandals get too close to the administration.

Here are the soldiers Harf implied are liars, Cody Full and Gerald Sutton:

    Since the “honest and truthful” State Dept was never on the ground and Bowe’s mates were,,,,, I chose NOT to believe the proven liars at the State Dept.

  • If there are any “unreliable sources” and “liars”, in this matter, they would be originating from within the Obama Administration who have already proven themselves as such time and again with all the ongoing scandals.

  • Poe

    Oh so they made the soldiers sign non-disclosure documents to prevent them from lying publicly? that makes a whole lot of sense

  • richinnameonly

    Do people need some sort of electroshock therapy before they can see what is really going on? How much sense does it take to see through all of this garbage?
    Last night O’Reilly was totally frustrated and was saying he just can’t understand why Obama does the things he does, including the Bergdahl/Gitmo swap. He was asking people to e-mail to him on the subject. I tried to make my message to him as short as possible, telling him that he and his news buddies were way behind the learning curve and/or afraid to say certain things. Obama was happy with the trade. He thought he could get good publicity to counter the VA scandal, and he freed SIX Muslims. Told O’Reilly that if he looked at Obama through the lens of him being a Saul Alinsky disciple AND a Muslim he will then see Obama clearly.

      O’Reilly is lost. Always has been. I remember after his first big interview with the messiah he was assured Oballah was a tough guy. What perplexes me is how people gain these positions of power, authority and high profile gigs that allow them to pass off their opinions gaining great wealth and fame, yet can’t see what’s right under their nose. Then I remember what Solomon said.

      I returned and saw under the sun that— The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11 NKJV)

    Up is down. Black is white. Day is night. Hot is cold. Hello is goodbye. Truth is a lie. Traitors are honorable. We live in a Bizarro world. This administration is enough to go Hinckley on someone. Decent people have had enough of this bunch, but with the current crop of spineless republicans, we have no voice. We shouldn’t have to put up with this lying propaganda machine, but what are you gonna do?

  • James Foard

    That state department spokeswoman certainly has a happy-go-lucky, carefree, upbeat attitude in the midst of this scandal and tragedy. I don’t know, it seems as though this administration doesn’t have any conscience when it comes to the deaths of six American soldiers searching for a deserter, and also the deaths of those American soldiers involved in the capture of the terrorists that they just let go from Gitmo.
    So they send out a Marylin Monroe impersonator to answer all the questions and sooth our hurt feelings. Just put on a good face, it’s a hap hap happy day, all smiles, pass the popcorn. Really abominable.

  • lil-echoes

    Obama has done what he set out to do at the very beginning – make the USA into a Muslim country. Look at all the Mosque’s that have appeared all over this country – and with Obama quoting some Muslim crap on TV. Well.. he was raised a Muslim, what can one expect. But its the ignorant and stupid who voted for this idiot who should suffer the most – and may their cats and dogs even become Muslims leaders of the animal world too.

  • lil-echoes

    What good does it do to gripe about what Obama says or does – nothing will or possibly can be done to him. The public should have demanded long ago of his Birth Certificate mess, that he was a fraud, but when you allow someone to take an ‘inch’… they will take a ‘mile’…. and this is exactly what Obama has done — cause those in Congress has done nothing about it.
