Dems Argue Over Bergdahl

Feinstein contradicts White House.

After announcing the prisoner exchange for Bowe Bergdahl, one of the numerous excuses the administration trotted out for not notifying Congress was worry that the Taliban would kill him if news of the deal leaked. Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) says, however, “No, I don’t think there was a credible threat [to his life], but I don’t know. I have no information that there was.” And as far as White House assurances that the Taliban Five won’t return to the battlefield against America, Feinstein isn’t convinced. “It’s hard to be comfortable when you haven’t been briefed on the intricacies of carrying out this agreement,” she said. It’s unusual for a Democrat like Feinstein to directly contradict White House spin, but it appears the five jihadis are enjoying an all-expenses-paid vacation at a resort in Qatar, where they are free to do as they please. But not to worry; Obama, who also loves his vacations, said Friday, “This is something that I would do again, and I will continue to do wherever I have an opportunity.” Empty Gitmo, whatever the price.
