‘Select Committee’ or a ‘Special Committee’
‘Select Committee’ or a ‘Special Committee’ where one of the governments own officials has got to take on these scenarios such as Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, and I will fondly rejoice this writing when it comes time to figure out what questions we like to asks Barack Obama at his impending impeachment trial or for the personal book that comes after that mess plays out.
But for the start of this matter ( imbed 5 Taliban Cadre Leaders trade for a one man deserter that cost his buddies their lives in looking for him.) The sound plays through this mind and ears nothing less than five times per day. The ostensible president that we have now — literally masquerading around telling everyone who still visits, “Oh I own that…and that too!” Speaking of course to one of America’s middle school classrooms about how this man made it from rags to riches.
There are some major new developments in the strange case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl that cry out for transparency – under law – from the Obama administration. The circumstances surrounding Bergdahl’s disappearance and subsequent capture have become the subject of intense controversy – and an equally intense cover-up, requiring Judicial Watch to file five separate Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits to ferret out the truth.
Judicial Watch said Wednesday that it had filed its fifth Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Obama administration seeking information that the group’s president said would prove the Defense Department knew early on that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl had deserted his post in Afghanistan before he was captured by the Taliban in 2009.
“The Pentagon has a lot to answer for as to why this wasn’t done sooner and did politics play any role in the untoward delay of this decision,” said Tom Fitton, the watchdog group’s president. “It’s further confirmation of the scandalous nature of the trade.
Given that the State Department is willing to make misrepresentations about what and when it knew, Judicial Watch accuses the Obama administration (which is using tax dollars to defend this cover-up) of playing games:
The State Department has yet to demonstrate how it is satisfying its obligations under FOIA in light of recent revelations that Secretary Clinton’s emails were not being properly managed, retained and produced. This also applies to emails received or sent by other officials or employees within the Secretary’s office to conduct government business who used non-“state.gov” email addresses. To determine the adequacy of the State Department’s search, both Judicial Watch and the Court should be informed by the Department directly of the details surrounding the retention of agency emails within the Office of the Secretary and the extent of the Department’s ability to search, request and retrieve those records … Had Judicial Watch not challenged the State Department’s search, this case would most likely have been dismissed before any public revelations were made about the unlawful arrangement relating to the State Department’s handling of agency emails during Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department …
[T]he State Department has still not responded to Judicial Watch’s request to confirm whether its supplemental search includes all non-“state.gov” email addresses used by other officials or employees within the Secretary’s office for government business .. .
“To the extent that Secretary Clinton used her non-“state.gov” email address to communicate with State Department employees outside her office who used “state.gov” email addresses, the State Department would also have to conduct agency wide searches to respond properly to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request.
