Bergdahl responses: Hassan, Kuster embarrass NH
“Sergeant Bergdahl’s release is incredibly heartening news, and I am sure his family and loved ones are overcome with joy that they will soon be reunited. His dedication and resilience represent the very best of all our service members, and I join all Americans in thanking him for his service, bravery and sacrifice,” Hassan said.
Kuster released no immediate statement. But asked about the deal by a reporter, she said, inexplicably, “You know, John McCain was a POW too, but he says we shouldn’t be negotiating with terrorists like this.” We have no idea what that means. Nor this: “Well, here’s the bottom line, we’re negotiating already when we leave people there.” If you can decipher those statements, the CIA could use your code-breaking talents.
