(WND / Worthy News)– Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel apparently isn't going to let the Obama administration throw him under the bus in the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl scandal. In fact, you could say just the opposite.
In his opening statement Wednesday at a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee, Hagel made a point of saying it was President Obama "who made the final decision" to swap Bergdahl for five top Taliban leaders.
"Mr. Chairman, I want to be clear on one fundamental point – I would never sign off on any decision that I did not feel was in the best interests of this country. Nor would the president of the United States, who made the final decision with the full support of his national security team."
The administration recently implied the final decision was made by Hagel. — Source
