VIDEO: Even MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Can’t Help But See Through State Dept. Spokesperson’s Bergdahl Spin

MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell went after the continued obfuscations of State Department spokesperson Marie Harf, and really destroyed much of the official line trying to spin the Bergdahl terrorist swap deal. Among the narratives destroyed: that the deal had to go through because Bergdahl was in imminent threat if details of the deal leaked, and that the administration didn’t brief Congress on Osama Bin Laden in the same manner that they were briefed on Bergdahl. When Harf is caught, she changes the subject, of course.

The best part of the interview is when Harf says, “it’s not about trusting Qatar!” Oh great, so we don’t trust the people we entrusted the five worst Guantanamo Bay terrorists to? Fantastic.

I can’t wait to see liberal reaction to Mitchell being so uncharacteristically critical of the Obama administration – they didn’t appreciate it last time.
