Hillary Defends Bergdahl Exchange


hillary-clintonHillary Clinton is certainly not shying away from controversial topics as she nears a likely presidential run. The former Secretary of State spoke out in support of President Obama’s decision to exchange five Guantanamo detainees for America’s lone POW, Bowe Bergdahl.

Many Republicans have accused the president of caving to terrorists, trading top Taliban members that the Pentagon had opposed releasing. Others have raised concerns that Bergdahl was a deserter.

Clinton defended Obama’s decision as honoring the nation’s military legacy. “This young man, whatever the circumstances, was an American citizen-is an American citizen-was serving in our military,” said Clinton at an event in Colorado promoting her latest memoir, Hard Choices. “The idea that you really care for your own citizens and particularly those in uniform, I think is a very noble one.” Read more at ABC News.

  1. How IRONIC that Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton say all this nice stuff about Mr. Bergdahl.

    Mrs. Clinton, what about Ambassador Stevens and the other embassy personnel in Benghazi that were viciously murdered while serving their country? They were Ameican citizens serving their country both in uniform and in a diplomatic capcity. You could not care less about those distinguished martyrs!

    Mrs. Clinton, of all people, should be keeping her mouth shut about this rather than making such diabolically despicable and hyprocrytical statements.

  2. Let’s see she kissed Arafats wife let our diplomats die and now backs the release of five killers of Americans. Yeah that’s about right and she wants to be president?

  3. It has now been revealed that Republicans started pressing the Obama administration to get Bergdahl back three years ago.

    Bergdahl may well face a court martial. But the idea that any American should face Taliban justice rather than American justice shows just how far the Obamahaters have gone. They don’t just hate Obama, they hate America.
