White House Official: What If Bergdahl’s Fellow Soldiers Were Psychopaths?
And what if Obama were to become conservative? Both scenarios seem about as likely.
Check it out:
A White House official upset with the direction of the Bergdhal story voiced his concern on Twitter on Wednesday, floating a theory that put Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in a more sympathetic light–and his fellow soldiers as part of the problem.
The American people, he argued, were too quick to jump to conclusions about Bergdahl after his fellow soldiers spoke out about his disappearance.
“Here’s the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership?” asked Brandon Friedman, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at Department of Housing and Urban Development, in a series of Twitter posts.
“What if he grew disillusioned with what he saw, didn’t trust his leadership, and walked off?,” he continued. “Legal? No. Worthy of sympathy? Maybe. If that were the case, the soldiers in his platoon would have all the more reason to smear him publicly now.”
