Bergdahl’s Platoon called “Psychopaths” by Obama Administration Official
As opposed to the other party in question which would in essence leave them as sane?

WASHINGTON — An official at the department of Housing And Urban Development apologized Thursday to service members and the Obama administration after his tweets suggesting there could be questions about the military records of former platoon mates of Bowe Bergdahl came under criticism.
“While I just wanted to make the point that the public should wait before passing judgment, I unfortunately used my own poor judgment in choosing inappropriate language that many view as disparaging to U.S. service members,” said Brandon Friedman, deputy assistant secretary of public affairs at HUD. “That was certainly not my intent and I regret making the comments on my personal account in such a way. I apologize to those with whom I work in the administration, at HUD, and, most importantly, to any service members who took offense.”
In a series of tweets Wednesday night, Friedman called growing dismissal of Bergdahl as a “traitor” by some administration critics as “premature.” He then went on to suggest that some who served with Bergdahl and are now criticizing him in the media could be trying to cover up their own failings.
“Here’s the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats,” Friedman tweeted. “What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership?”
Friedman said that kind of wording was inappropriate Thursday and did not reflect the views of the administration.
“I’d like to clarify tweets I wrote last night on my personal Twitter account concerning the return of Bowe Bergdahl. First, I do not speak for the administration on national security issues in any capacity — public or personal,” he said. “As a former infantry officer and combat veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan, I have only the highest regard for our servicemen and women. They are my friends, my colleagues, my mentors, my brothers, and sisters.”…

So the intent was to……?
…”Bergdahl wasn’t captured in battle, he didn’t serve with distinction, he wasn’t dying in captivity, Obama didn’t have to break the law to complete the deal without notifying Congress, the military command and intelligence community didn’t support the trade, the government of Qatar won’t be “monitoring” the released Taliban commanders, either Harry Reid or Obama is lying about when Reid was brought into the loop”… breitbart.com
