Flashback: WH Aides Accuse Bergdahl’s Fellow Soldiers of ‘Swift Boating’ Him

In June of 2012, on NBC’s “Today” show, Chuck Todd reported that White House aides did not expect soldiers who served with army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl to “swift boat” him after his release from captivity.

Todd said “They did not expect this backlash on Bergdahl himself. I’ve had a few aides describe it to me as we didn’t know that they were going to ‘swift boat’ Bergdahl. And that’s a reference to that political fight back in 2004 over John Kerry’s military service.”

The White House aides were referring to Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers telling several major media outlets that Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter, not a hero.
