Obama Let Bergdahl Parents Take Part In Secure Video Conferences
It’s armature hour at the White House as Obama has zero clue what he is doing on the worldwide stage.
Check it out:
The White House allowed the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to take part in a series of secure video conferences with State Department and intelligence officials and senior military commanders, according to a published report.
The Washington Times reports that Bob and Jani Bergdahl were allowed to join the conferences remotely from the Idaho National Guard headquarters in Boise soon after their son was captured by the Taliban in June 2009.
A spokesman for the Idaho National Guard told the paper that the Bergdahls participated in up to 20 video conferences per year.
“Mr. and Mrs. Bergdahl were regularly informed about what was happening throughout the duration using video teleconferencing [with] various military and other government agencies,” said Air Force Col. Anthony Marsano. “There was a great effort to keep Mr. and Mrs. Bergdahl updated on developments.”
Larry Johnson, a former State Department official who worked on the cases of American citizens taken hostage in Lebanon during the 1980s, told the Times that granting such access to the family of a missing person was “wrong.”
