The White House is in “utter panic” over the fallout from the swap of five detainees at the U.S. military detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for POW Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said.
Administration aides have pushed back against accounts of Bergdahl’s fellow service members who suggested he left his post in Afghanistan voluntarily. Giuliani said it was “disgraceful” for the White House to essentially accuse Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers of lying.
“I think they are in a state of utter panic,” Giuliani, a Republican, told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Thursday. “They are saying all these men are liars. These are men who did serve honorably. Who did put their lives at risk. Some of them are decorated. And, there’s a lot of them who are saying the same thing.”
