Flashback: Hagel Says “President Made Ultimate Decision” on Bergdahl Swap With Taliban (Video)

Way back on June 1, 2014, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said President Obama made the “ultimate decision” on the Bergdahl swap with the Taliban.
Via Meet the Press:

“We found an opportunity. We took the opportunity. I’ll stand by that decision. I signed off on the decision. The president made the ultimate decision.”

Yesterday, June 9, the White House threw Chuck under the bus saying Hagel made the final call.

FYI: A US judge ruled one Taliban leader Khairulla Khairkhwa was too dangerous to release. Obama released him anyway.

Pretty incredible, huh?
