Doesn’t Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel serve at the pleasure of President Obama? Apparently we’re all not supposed to think of that.

Final approval for the prisoner exchange that freed Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was made by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, members of Congress learned on Monday from administration officials. 

‘They indicated (it was) Secretary Hagel (who made the final call),’ Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) said after a classified briefing, ABC points out.

Hagel gets to explain this during a House Armed Services Committee hearing tomorrow. If that goes as well as his confirmation hearing, it will be depressing and yet morbidly entertaining. He’ll get to explain the heavy tire tracks that are now grooved into his back.

How refreshing it would be to hear Hagel say at this upcoming hearing to the effect "Hey look, I just do what I am told. Period."

Bus tracks I suspect. This after Hagel already said the president made the call. Keystone Kops can't keep their story straight.

Young Barry Obama was never held accountable for anything. And it shows. Dear Liar wants all the credit for getting the last POW, but none of the blame for a bad deal. The buck stops -- over there, somewhere.

So, Chuck (alleged Republican) Hagel, who sold out his party, his country and his former fellow service members to be Obama's hatchet man in destroying the U.S.'s military capabilities, now gets blamed for the debacle of the week. Well, it couldn't have happened to anyone who deserved it more.
