Jim Treacher and others caught a bizarre series of tweets today. Brandon Friedman, HUD’s deputy secretary for public affairs, tweeted out his deep, deep thoughts on the whole Bergdahl matter.

He accused Bowe Bergdahl’s squad mates of being “psychopaths.” No kidding.

 

There are more tweets at the link, including an ironic one in which Friedman inveighs against speculation about Bergdahl, while baselessly speculating about all the military men who now say Bergdahl deserted them.

Friedman has now scrubbed his Twitter bio, presumably in an attempt to cover up his presence in the Obama administration. Oops — too late!

Unlike most of the other hipsters who infest the Obama administration’s public affairs slots, Friedman actually did serve in the military. Which makes his smear of Bergdahl’s squad mates all the more disgusting. On the other hand, he wrote a John Kerry-esque book about the war. That’s probably why he was hired to the administration. Obama’s head hunters don’t look for veterans who served with actual honor and are proud of having defended freedom.

For those keeping track of all this at home, from one smear to another Obama’s minions are siding not with the soldiers who stayed on post and did their duty in Afghanistan, but with the soldier who thought the war was “lame” and is accused of deserting his duty, and possibly collaborating with the enemy.

Bryan Preston has been a leading conservative blogger and opinionator since founding his first blog in 2001. Bryan is a military veteran, worked for NASA, was a founding blogger and producer at Hot Air, was producer of the Laura Ingraham Show and, most recently before joining PJM, was Communications Director of the Republican Party of Texas.

Yeah, Friedman. There was only one sane man in that whole platoon, and he was so sane that he defected and turned himself in to the Taliban. Makes a lot of sense. You're a true genius.

I assume this sorry freak of a man speaks from personal experience, knowing the ravages of neurosis and dementia. Just another rug chewer from an administration loaded with the mentally and/or emotionally challenged.
Just look at what we have for a president?

It's just amazing to we veterans. We know there are Progressive New Left Activist's among us "grunts." We know who they are, we're careful when going out on a mission to monitor what they do, how they do and who they're doing it to, yet we want them as part of our unit. Their disdain for we military vets who want always to obey rules of war and perform according to our commanders orders , see them form small groups of like minded fellow recruits and hold court on what is and isn't good about we vet's mission, vision and objectives. Why do these Progressive New Left Activist's enlist if they're loathe to perform any mission as planned by military commanders? Then to serve their tour of duty, seek a safe, cushy public service life where they can do insurmountable damage to We Vet's successes, is frustrating at best and very life threatening at worse. This poor, lost fellow Veteran should re-think their view of America's military. It's not a "We/They" conundrum! It's US, the USA. If this administration and all their socialist sympathizers would stop the "second guessing," bad mouthing," and back biting of the world's finest and best...a better, united America would flourish. The way this administration and it's "Fellow Travelers" treat ALL Americans as so much trash and extra weight has to be exposed, talked about then told to "CEASE AND DESIST!" God Bless ALL Veterans and service personnel. Pray. Amen. Join a local Tea Party. Register to vote and vote. Our Top Commanders should arise, in one voice, and denounce these attacks on America's finest...not hide in Washington DC's shadows, saying nothing.

Another treasonous psychopath surrounding the chief psychopathic terrorist, Barack Hussein Obama, if that's his real name.

They always project what they are and do, onto others. Someone needs to tell this treasonous punk that there's no statute of limitations on treason. You can be tried and executed too, buddy

Why would any American choose to serve under the current President?
He'll order you to you death injudiciously and unmourned.
Wait until America has an American president before enlisting.

Another effeminate wonk mouthing off while having control of HUD's armed SWAT teams with SAMs, deadly arms, and armored vehicles?

HUD ought to name Mr. Friedman Reichsmarschall for the fuhrer's propaganda.

And he's a "public affairs" specialist.

And he has all the charm of a snake, a Goebbels pet snake.

As Mark Twain would say. First God made the idiot. That was for practice. Then He made Brandon Friedman.

This goes beyond a political issue that they can spin off the headlines. The CINC has a DUTY to shut his people up and not interfere with the investigation/judicial proceedings to insure there is no UNDUE COMMAND INFLUENCE and his flunky, being a former, decorated officer should know better. Bergdahl deserves a fair trial and military investigators should be talking to these soldiers in sworn depositions - this should not be decided by vicious political attacks in the media. This isn't about one of their lame Obama narratives.

This is the first step. Discredit the sources that describe what happened. The next step is to create and rehearse Bergdahl on a story that will cast him in a hero's light. Holding Bergdahl incommunicado while they are working out the details is allowing them plenty of time to "1984" history. He will either become the ultimate hero or a non-person. The one thing you can be certain of is that we will never learn the truth from the administration.

Just you wait:
"He actually slipped out of camp on a secret mission (that we can't divulge) to ingratiate himself with the Taliban. While there he was to get as much information as possible (even if it took five years) so that we could call airstrikes (dronestrikes?) after we pulled him out."
As you know, Sgt Bergdahl is the world's most interesting man. And he will have lots of stories to tell while sucking on a Dos XX. Stay credulous, my friend.

The fact that "you can't polish a turd" has no bearing on this administration and their fellow traitors.
They think if they SAY something often and forcefully enough, it is so.
Marx and Lenin and, indeed, our old pal Adolph suffered from the same disease.
I'm sure Winston would have traded Rommel, Goering, Himmler, Von Rundstedt, Von Paulus, and Von Mannstein for Eddie Slovik, right?
