The Obama administration apparently is telling lawmakers that the Taliban threatened to kill Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl if the pending deal to free him was made public — but sources suggest that’s no excuse for keeping Congress in the dark.
One Senate aide told Fox News that senators were told at a briefing on Wednesday that “the U.S. obtained credible information that, if anything about the swap became public, Bergdahl would be killed.”
According to The Associated Press, several congressional officials say they were told the same thing.
The claim emerged as the White House grapples with a growing bipartisan backlash over trading five Taliban leaders for Bergdahl’s freedom. President Obama and others have argued that they were operating under the principle that America does not leave soldiers behind, and were concerned about Bergdahl’s health when they pursued the trade.
