They left me here to live or die

* Did John McCain flip-flop on the Bergdahl deal?

* McCain rejects evidence, accuses critics of ‘lying’.

* Fox News Contributor Behind PR Campaign For Soldiers Critical Of Bowe Bergdahl.

* The Rush to Demonize Sgt. Bergdahl:

This hypocrisy now pervades the Republican Party and the conservative movement, and has even infected several fearful Democrats. When they could use Sergeant Bergdahl’s captivity as a cudgel against the administration, they eagerly did so, loudly and in great numbers. And the moment they could use his release to make President Obama look weak on terrorism or simply incompetent, they reversed direction without a moment’s hesitation to jump aboard the new bandwagon.
The last few days have made clearer than ever that there is no action the Obama administration can take — not even the release of a possibly troubled American soldier from captivity — that cannot be used for political purposes by his opponents.

And that is what it's all about.
