Congressional Democrats such as Dianne Feinstein have expressed a measure of surprise because the Obama administration illegally failed to inform them before releasing five dangerous Taliban leaders from Gitmo. Obviously Dems decided not to be concerned about this administration’s signature traits until they threatened to harm them politically:

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein took at shot at the Obama administration on Tuesday for failing to give lawmakers 30 days’ notice about a deal to release five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the only POW from America’s war in Afghanistan.

“It’s very disappointing that there was not a level of trust sufficient to justify alerting us,” Feinstein told reporters in the Capitol.

A defense bill that President Obama signed into law in December 2013 requires that Congress be notified 30 days ahead of releasing prisoners from Guantanamo Bay.

Amid backfire-palooza on the Gitmo Five/Bergdahl swap, some Dems are acting as if they just received insurance cancellation notices after having been told “if you like your plan you can keep it.” Welcome to the party.

The White House apologized to Feinstein for the “oversight.” The people who actually deserve apologies will probably never get them.
