It looks like the White House counted on Bergdahl’s release to be a “rally ’round the flag, boys” moment, but they were blindsided by the backlash from people across the country, including former members of his unit.

But, if you haven’t seen the video of his release yet, here’s the propaganda video that the Haqqani released last night of their great victory, from ABC News;
