Bergdahl, out of the Taliban frying pan and into the Obama fire
It's been five days since US Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was traded to the US for five well-rested, Taliban vacationers at Club Gitmo, and he hasn't been allowed to talk to his parents or media yet. Why?
I think it's a very good chance that the Obama administration, clearly in damage-control mode, is interrogating him themselves to make sure they have plausible rationalizations for all the lies and mis-information they've told the American people, and additionally to help Bergdahl "remember" the events of his desertion in the most administration-helpful light possible.
The cover-up on this might be more politically necessary leading into November than was Benghazi, IRS, NSA wiretapping, or Fast and Furious.
