“You blew it again, Barack Obama,” Palin said, slamming Obama for “negotiating away any leverage against the bad guys as these bad guys – Osama Bin Laden’s partners in evil crime – joyfully celebrate their ‘win’ in the deal you sealed.”
In a post titled, “Commander-in-Chief’s Definition of ‘Honorable Service’ Includes Anti-American Actions While in Uniform; He Just Destroyed Troop Morale,” Palin ripped National Security Adviser Susan Rice for saying on Sunday that Bowe Bergdahl had served with “honor and distinction.”
“No, Mr. President, a soldier expressing horrid anti-American beliefs – even boldly putting them in writing and [unabashedly firing off his messages] while in uniform, just three days before he left his unit on foot – is not ‘honorable service,'” Palin wrote .”Unless that is your standard.”
