More Embarrassment for the Obama Administration over Bowe Bergdahl

Last night The Factor reported that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) had filed a report on Sgt. Bergdahl's disappearance in Afghanistan almost six years ago in 2009.

That report stated that Bergdahl collaborated with some Afghans to desert his unit and to possibly aid the enemy.

Surely that NCIS report was known by President Obama before he approved the release of five top Taliban terrorists from Guantanamo Bay.

But even worse were the public statements made at the time of Bergdahl's release:

May 31, 2014 

OBAMA: Sergeant Bergdahl has missed birthdays and holidays and the simple moments with family and friends, which all of us take for granted.  But while Bowe was gone, he was never forgotten.”

JAY CARNEY, THEN WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: “Sergeant Bergdahl put on the uniform of the United States voluntarily. (EDIT) That takes honor and is a mark of distinction.”

SUSAN RICE, NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR: “He's going to be safely reunited with his family. He served the United States with honor and distinction.”

Talking Points is appalled that a man who may have collaborated with the enemy in Afghanistan was erroneously defined by the White House.

That's deception because the investigation indicated criminal activity and none of that was presented to the American public.

Quite the opposite.  We are told Sgt. Bergdahl is a man of honor.

But now the military has charged him with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, which could lead to life in prison for the sergeant.

This Bergdahl ruse is part of the reason that many, perhaps most, Americans no longer trust President Obama.

If we are going to be misled at that degree on Bergdahl, what about Iran, what about the War on Terror, what about the economy?

Benghazi was bad enough, the White House describing the attack as inspired by an anti-Muslim video.  But at least that was issued in the fog of battle.

Bergdahl's situation was known for years, yet the deception was perpetrated.

Awful.

And that's the memo.
