Chuck Todd: WH Says It Didn't Know 'They Were Going to 'Swift Boat' Bergdahl'

On Wednesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” network chief Washington correspondent Chuck Todd said White House officials were caught “flat-footed” on the fallout from the deal made for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl involving five Taliban Guantanamo Bay detainees.

“I’ve had a few aides describe it to me as ‘we didn’t know that they were going to ‘Swift Boat’ Bergdahl’,” Todd said. “And Matt, of course, that’s a reference to that political fight back in 2004 over John Kerry’s military service which became so controversial in that campaign. So there’s some fighting words there.”
