Reuters reporter Mark Felsenthal reports that Sgt. Bergdahl’s hometown in Idaho is cancelling its planned celebration. “Bergdahl’s home town in Idaho has canceled plans for a celebration, city administrator says,” reports Felsenthal on Twitter….
The decision came as the small mountain community was coming under mounting pressure to cancel the rally amid rising anger over claims by some of Bergdahl’s former Army comrades that he had deliberately abandoned his post in Afghanistan….
Well, it looks like I have the answer to a question I posed in a post earlier today, i.e., “Who to believe?”
Was it Robert Bergdahl’s Muslim victory call? Or the fact that Bowe Bergdahl walked away from his commitment? Or both?
Mark Feilsenthal posted two tweets (below) about 30 minutes apart from each other:
Hailey, Idaho called off 6/28 event at request of organizers because town “unable to safely manage the number of people expected.”

Barack Obama and Chuck Hagel must be pissed but they bear much of the blame for the outrage. What we have here is a disaster of the administration’s own making.
The Obama administration has been lying to Americans for five days about the prisoner swap. Actually years, if one thinks back to Benghazi and then even further when taking into account the administration’s lack of transparency.
