During an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams, Barack Obama claims – incredibly – that “my government” acted ‘unanimously” in its decision to trade five Taliban commanders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Williams asked why Obama did obtain Congressional assent, as required by law. Obama began with what must have been his hundredth reference to “leaving no man behind” — despite the fact that he knew Bergdahl had deserted and defected in 2009, and Bergdahl was never given POW status for that reason.
It was a “unanimous decision” by “my government.” “I make no apologies for it.”
You see, it’s King Obama’s country. We only live here, as his subjects.
Remember that the deal was overwhelmingly rejected in 2012 by members of Congress, Pentagon officials and the intel community — meaning that the American people’s actual government was “unanimous” about the deal.
But of course that didn’t matter this time — because Obama needed a distraction to get the VA scandal off the news. And he succeeded.
