WASHINGTON An official at the department of Housing And Urban Development whose criticized tweets suggesting that there could be questions about the military records of former platoon mates of Bowe Bergdahl apologized Thursday to service members and the Obama administration.
While I just wanted to make the point that the public should wait before passing judgment, I unfortunately used my own poor judgment in choosing inappropriate language that many view as disparaging to U.S. service members, said Brandon Friedman, deputy assistant secretary of public affairs at HUD. That was certainly not my intent and I regret making the comments on my personal account in such a way. I apologize to those with whom I work in the Administration, at HUD, and, most importantly, to any service members who took offense.

The Taliban made him do it.
Oopsie. But he forgot to apologize to all us civilians who are spitting nails at his disgraceful comments. I think the unit he defamed should sue him and the US government for defamation. At the very least.
Didn’t I read yesterday that this d!psh!t, a former Army officer, wrote a book critical of the Afghanistan war effort and the Army in general?
Does this mean the bullies at HUD don’t have their own SWAT Teams yet?
2. Swiftboating 3. It was an oversight, sorry 4. Plantoon full of psychopaths
5. Taliban threated to kill
Is Pelosi daughter going to apologize?

he forgot he was on the internet where what you say is said forever and not just to fellow travelers..
He feels his statement wasn't offensive in itself, but he apologizes for service members reaction to his statement.
Loudmouth desk driver stepped on his crank and now he’s scrambling to get off it. The time to think is BEFORE you open your trough-swilling bureaucratic pork hole, jerk. Eat ... crow ... and die.
Uh huh,,there’s a sincere apology right there,,NOT!
He still has his job,,right?
He can KMA
That’s fine Brandon. Apology not accepted but your letter of resignation will be.
Susan Rice didn't wait before announcing that Bergdahl served "with honor and distinction." This from the liar who told us that the Benghazi attack was caused by a video.
Brandon Friedman, you revealed yourself to be an anti-American traitor. Go shoot yourself.
Soon they will surpass the number of lies that HELLry told in Cattlegate.
Yeah, so any of you that don't like being called "psychopaths", I'm sorry you feel that way.
Thanks for posting. FR gets results.
Can you just see the staff meetings? "Well, they didn't buy that lie. Who can come up with another one? Oh, and you'd better explain why we didn't say the new one first, and why the other ones are no longer operative," as Nixon's liars used to say. Of course, compared to Barack Obama, Richard Nixon was George Washington and Abraham Lincoln rolled into one. Obama is even starting to make Bill Clinton seem honest by comparison.
