Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein took at shot at the Obama administration on Tuesday for failing to give lawmakers 30 days’ notice about a deal to release five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the only POW from America’s war in Afghanistan.
“It’s very disappointing that there was not a level of trust sufficient to justify alerting us,” Feinstein told reporters in the Capitol.
A defense bill that President Obama signed into law in December 2013 requires that Congress be notified 30 days ahead of releasing prisoners from Guantanamo Bay.
Feinstein said that National Deputy Security Adviser Tony Blinken called her Monday night “apologizing” for failing to notify lawmakers sooner.
From Obamacare to this, The Idiot King doesn’t seem to be much for obeying the laws he signs.
The press has been in full cover the president’s you-know-what mode for two days now, so you can tell that Team Lightbringer is nervous about this. It is yet another monumental misread of the sentiment of the American public, coming hot on the heels of their gross miscalculations about how to proceed regarding the VA scandal.
