In an editorial today, the New York Times did their level best to protect President Obama by… of course… smearing anyone whose evidence contradicts the official party narrative as a liar who just hates the black president.
Republican operatives have arranged for soldiers in his unit to tell reporters that he was a deserter who cost the lives of several soldiers searching for him. In fact, a review of casualty reports by Charlie Savage and Andrew Lehren of The Times showed there is no clear link between any military deaths and the search.
And a classified military report shows that Sergeant Bergdahl had walked away from assigned areas at least twice before and had returned, according to a report in The Times on Thursday. It describes him as a free-spirited young man who asked many questions but gave no indication of being a deserter, let alone the turncoat that Mr. Obama’s opponents are now trying to create.
If anything, the report suggests that the army unit’s lack of security and discipline was as much to blame for the disappearance, given the sergeant’s history.
- The soldiers who are reporting that Sgt. Bergdahl deserted his post are liars.
- The soldiers who claim other soldiers died looking for him are lying.
- The Republicans put them up to it.
- It’s the Army’s fault for letting him desert.
- Everybody except President Obama, Susan Rice and that blond from the State Department with the Buddy Holly glasses and dark roots is lying.
So, now we know what the party line will be going forward.
The North Korean Ministry of Propaganda called the NY Times earlier today and said, “Hey guys, you might want to dial it back a little.”
