The phrase is ‘plausible deniability.’ ‘President’ Obama has gotten very good at it, and it seems to work for him – even when it’s proven that he DID know whatever it is that he denies knowing. Maybe it will work for Chuck Hagel, as the ‘high-level investigation’ into the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl’s disappearance come to light.
The Hill – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that he didn’t know of any troops who had died in the search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, amid a growing controversy over whether the former Taliban prisoner deserted his unit.
“I do not know of specific circumstances or details of U.S. solders dying as a result of efforts to find and rescue Sgt. Bergdahl,” Hagel said at a press conference in Brussels, Belgium, where he met with NATO defense ministers, Reuters reported.
