“Did somebody say baloney?”

The claim that U.S. troops could be at increased risk in Afghanistan because of Obama’s “five Taliban leaders for Bergdahl” swap is “baloney” according to John Kerry, who then immediately confirmed that it might be true.

This is an insta-flip-flop:

Secretary of State John Kerry says it’s “baloney” to argue that U.S. troops will be more at risk in Afghanistan after the prisoner swap of five Taliban commanders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

“Our combat role in Afghanistan is over,” Kerry said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” when asked if U.S. troops were being put at increased risk.

“We’re going to have very few people in that kind of position,” he said. “On occasion, but I honestly, I just think that’s a lot of baloney because, to whatever degree it may be true, they will wind up putting themselves at the mercy of those people who are very effective who are there, who will deal with those guys.”

The Secretary of Baloney has spoken.

Here’s Kerry making the claim on the Lurch-o-Tron:

In case you missed it, Obama said last week he would be willing to do a similar trade again.
