Never Obama’s fault: Hagel thrown under the bus for Bergdahl

Obama Driving the BusIsn’t it amazing how Mr Obama is never really responsible for anything that occurs in his administration?  Luckily, it’s always the fault of “someone else” instead of Mr Barack Hussein Obama.  As some have said, it’s good to be proficient but it’s equally good or truly better to have excellent luck as well.

Mr Obama seems to have great continuing amounts of luck because, as it turns out, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel actually personally made the call to trade five Taliban leaders for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, not Barack Hussein Obama.

Mr Obama is saved once again.  This is indeed reassuring, is it not?

Speaking of “again,” the UK media again beats the American Media Maggots

From the UKDailyMail.com:

Now the White House says Hagel made final call on Bergdahl as criticism of Obama over prisoner swap mounts

Isn’t it odd that the trade of five Taliban leaders for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl was, according to DC, simply a good thing at the outset.  Nobody noticed.  Move on.

  • Congress learned on Monday that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave final approval for the prisoner exchange that freed Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl
  • Last week, Hagel said the swap was a unanimous decision made by senior officials
  • Hagel is expected to defend the prisoner exchange on Wednesday in an appearance before the House Armed Services Committee

And now that Bergdahl’s primacy was due to his health, and then due to his jeopardy, there is now a NEW meme created by DC: “it’s not Obama’s fault.”

Nor should it be — when Barack Hussein Obama has any number of martyrs and kamikazes set in place in order to politically ricochet negative issues off of his tough hide.

To keep him safe and sipping calm soup nightly.

Sometimes sacrifices have to be made.

- Father John: Sacrifices have to be made, mister.  These people are at war!
– Harry: So am I.
– Father John: How dare you pull a gun in the house of God.  If you don’t believe in the sanctity of the church –
– Harry: I don’t have time to argue religion with you, boy.

And I don’t have time to posit anything but: Hagel, thrown under the DC Political Bus by Mr Obama.

What is up regarding Bob Bergdahl, father of US Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl? Calvinist? Muslim?

Hegel Guantanomo 5 ReleasesSgt Bowe Bergdahl, newly-released from his Taliban captors (having been in their custody for five years, missing since May 30th of 2009) in exchange for five very high-ranking Taliban leaders from Gitmo, has been isolated from the media and the rest of the world since his recovery.  There is no so-called “ticker tape parade” in honor of his recovery.  There is only silence.  He is, officially, being attended by psychiatrists and doctors.  Information indicates he is having trouble speaking English.

[That said -- the exchange was absolutely unprecedented in the history of presidents.  No one has done so under these conditions, save Mr Obama.]

On Saturday, May 31st, the parents — Bob and Jani — of Sgt Bowe Bergdahl spoke in the Rose Garden of the Spite House with Mr Obama present.

It looked like this:

Bob Bergdahl concluded his remarks about the release of his son Bowe, praised “Allah,” and then Mr Obama hugged him.

“To the people of Afghanistan, the same.”

People are ascribing Islam to Mr and Mrs Bergdahl.  I’m not so sure.  I’m wondering if Bowe was raised Calvinist in Idaho.

“To the people of Afghanistan, the same.”

If not Calvinist, then Bob and Jani instilled various Pacifist philosophies into the wheelhouse of Bowe.  He was rejected from the French Foreign Legion.  He looked for ways to change society and — the biggest potential point yet — sought them in the US military.  This was a guy who was not only tone deaf, ignorant of history, poorly educated, naive, but sufficiently arrogant to think that he could simply change Life as we know it.

But one path proscribes another which led to: joining the US military.

Bowe Bergdahl CapThe UKMailOnline said:

Taliban prisoner swap was ILLEGAL claims GOP as former federal prosecutor says it could lead to Obama’s impeachment

  • The president ignored a law – which he signed last year – requiring him to notify Congress 30 days before releasing anyone from Guantanamo Bay
Barack Obama broke a federal law that he signed just six months ago when he authorized the release of five high-ranking Taliban terror targets from the Guantanamo Bay detention center in exchange for the return of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, senior congressional Republicans claimed today.

And at least six soldiers lost their lives in circumstances related to the Idaho native’s disappearance from his post on June 30, 2009. Parents of one dead military men were told that their son perished in a mission aimed at taking down a Taliban target, not capturing a deserter.

Add it up.

Add it all up.

It is a work in progress but it is not a good work.

P.S.
Like any good Millennial, as far as Bowe Bergdahl was concerned, it was all about him.

And what about the timing?

 

Chuck Hagel confirmed as Secretary of Defense, 58 to 41

Invertebrate GOPFrom FoxNews.com:

Senate approves Hagel for Defense secretary after historic nomination fight

After Republicans blocked the nomination earlier this month, they ultimately allowed for an up-or-down vote on Tuesday. The margin was historically close, with 58 senators supporting him and 41 opposing in the end.

The Left and Demorats are celebrating today, patting the backs of the four Republicans who joined them in confirming Hagel: Thad Cochran of Mississippi, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, Richard Shelby of Alabama and Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Of course, the Republicans signed off on the cloture vote.  So, once again, they cave.  Plus, we have those four RINOs who actually voted for Hagel.  Hagel didn’t deserve an “up or down” vote because he didn’t even deserve the nomination.  Hagel, in fact, isn’t much interested in doing anything for the military; one could make the argument that Chuck Hagel eminently dislikes the military.  Lovely.  An antisemite as our Secretary of Defense.

“The political reality is that the Jewish Lobby intimidates a lot of people around here.”
— Chuck Hagel, 2006

The US acts like a “schoolyard bully.”
— Chuck Hagel, 2007

Our new Secretary of Defense: Chuck Hagel.  Thank God Louis Farrakhan supported the nomination of Chuck Hagel.
