(CNN) — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was physically abused during his five years in Taliban captivity and is suffering from psychological trauma, a senior U.S. official told CNN on Friday.
The information bolstered the White House argument that President Barack Obama needed to move quickly to secure Bergdahl’s release in a May 31 exchange for five Taliban figures held at Guantanamo Bay.
According to the official, who spoke on condition of not being identified, Bergdahl tried to escape at one point but got caught, and his captors then confined him in small enclosure described as a cage or box. [More exigent circumstances for shut up here]
Which means he was either being held against his will, or he didn’t like the curried goat’s testicles.
The circumstances around Bergdahl’s disappearance from his base in 2009, his motivation for walking away, and whether or not he may have been collaborating with the enemy have ignited a firestorm of controversy on both sides of the aisle.
Hillary Clinton is defending the deal that freed Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, dismissing questions about how he fell into the hands of the Taliban as beside the point.
“It doesn’t matter,” Clinton said in an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer that aired Friday. “We bring our people home.”
Oh right. We all must have forgotten that ‘It doesn’t make any difference at this point‘. So let’s quit wasting all this time trying to determine the facts. The important thing is, well, Hillary Clinton… when you think about it:
Hillary remembers everything clearly… It just doesn’t matter… Is all.
I don’t know why we’re even talking about all this; the New York Times has vetted every fact we will ever need to know in advance, so we don’t have to.
So turn the page, will ya?
We have an election to think about…
