Carney in 2013: No detainee transfer for Bergdahl 'without consulting Congress'

Did Jay Carney decide to quit his job because he knew about news of the Bergdahl deal coming, and remembered what he had said less than a year ago? The Washington Free Beacon  certainly remembered:

“With regard to the transfer of Taliban detainees from Guantanamo Bay, we have made — the United States has not made the decision to do that, though we do expect the Taliban to raise this issue in our discussion, if and when those discussions happen,” Carney said. “As we have long said, however, we would not make any decisions about transfer of any detainees without consulting with Congress and without doing so in accordance with U.S. law.”

Carney made the remarks at the press briefing on June 21, 2013. Less than a year later, Congress was not informed as the Obama administration agreed to release five Taliban leaders in exchange for Bergdahl.

You can watch the broken promise here:

Prior to Articles of Impeachment being drawn up for President Nixon, when the White House was caught in a lie, they declared the previous statement, “inoperative.” I guess that’s the right term for Carney’s statement last June, too.
