Obama throws Defense Secretary Hagel under the bus

Bergdahl prisoner swap
Yesterday, June 9, 2014, Congress held a behind-closed-doors hearing on Obama’s May 31 prisoner swap, releasing 5 dangerous Taliban terrorists from Gitmo in exchange for U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

Congress learnt that as many as 80 to 90 Obama administration officials were aware of the planned swap, and yet not a single member of Congress was informed, in direct violation of Section 1035 of the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) or H.R. 3304 (read it in PDF here), which was signed into law by Obama on Dec. 26, 2013.

Section 1035’s subsection (d) states:

“The Secretary of Defense shall notify the appropriate committees of Congress of a determination of the Secretary under subsection (a) or (b) not later than 30 days before the transfer or release of the individual under such subsection.”

Obama’s prisoner swap is also in violation of Section 1035(a)(1), (b)(1), and (c)(2) of the 2014 NDAA. (Read about it here.)

crap-hitting-the-fanThe POS must be feeling the heat because something else happened at yesterday’s closed-door Congressional hearing:

Obama threw Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel under the bus, blaming him for the prisoner swap by saying it was Hagel who made the final call on the swap.

Here’s a tweet from CNN’s Erin Burnett:

The last time I looked, Barack Hussein Obama is still the President and Commander In Chief of the United States — and Hagel’s boss.

Hagel didn’t make the final call; Obama the POS did.

  1. Great article Dr. E. The web of lies from this “miss-administration” keeps getting deeper and deeper. Blaming Hagel for this isn’t the least bit surprising considering how much of a snake 0bama is. I want to see the downfall of this president and his minions all, including Hillary.

  2. Of course he did….

  3. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this most interesting post. And the king doesn’t have the integrity to admit that he is the Commander in Chief, in charge of Hagel; the buck stops with him. Amazing!

  4. Count Chocula gets a pass again.

  5. Reblogged this on Dead Citizen's Rights Society.

  6. Not surprised he let someone else take the fall; that’s what he does and that’s how he continues to get away with these types of activities.

  7. I have no use for Hagel, but I doubt very seriously he had much, if anything, to do with this latest abomination.


  8. No loyalty among thieves.

  9. Hagel as a fellow Vietnam combat veteran now has an opportunity to save our nation from the coward who runs it, if he has the nerve. Despite the fact that Obama is CinC, Hagel may still enjoy more respect from among the rank and file. Unfortunately, his effort to deceive the American people a few days ago may have cost Hagel a potential edge.

  11. It is just like plumbing, it starts at the top and trickles down. Hagel has turned his back on this country. I wonder what he really thinks of all this. Look at his body language, head down, shoulder slumped, doesn’t have much eye contact. Tells me something is amiss.
    BO is always the last to know, never gives the order, finds out on TV, just what do we pay him for? He is irrelevant.

  12. No doubt neither are fit for anything better than being used to chock bus tires, better yet decorating a tree limb.

    Only the ignorant, liars, or cowards, will refer to obama as president.
