Sound the alarm! The White House’s account of the Bergdahl swap has reportedly changed yet again:

From the AP:

The Obama administration has told senators it didn’t notify Congress about the pending swap of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban officials because the Taliban had threatened to kill him if the deal was made public, three congressional officials have told The Associated Press.

The threat, — not just concerns that Bergdahl’s health might be failing — drove the Obama administration to quickly make the deal to rescue him, the officials said Thursday. The threat was transmitted by Qatari officials at the height of the negotiations, they said.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel was referring in part to the threat when he said Sunday that “there was a question about his safety,” the officials told the senators in a closed-door briefing on Wednesday.

Hey, one of the White House’s narratives has to do the trick, right? Right???

Just when we think the Obama administration couldn’t look any more slimy and spineless … they prove us wrong.

What’s that spell?


Seriously. This is just downright ridiculous. Not to mention insulting to our intelligence.

So many lies, so little time.

Yep. Earlier we were told that the deal had to be closed quickly because of Bergdahl’s deteriorating health. That story doesn’t seem to have panned out.

Don’t worry — another one will come along soon enough.
