5:25 pm || Meets with Secretary of Defense Hagel
I think we know what this is all about:
ABC News reports: "Hagel made final call on Bergdahl swap, Congress told"
“They indicated [it was] Secretary Hagel [who made the final call],” House Armed Services Chairman Buck McKeon, R-California, told reporters following the briefing Monday evening. “It was the president of the United States that came out [in the Rose Garden] with the Bergdahls and took all the credit and now that there’s been a little pushback he’s moving away from it and it’s Secretary Hagel?”
