White House Backpedals After Claiming Bergdahl ‘Served With Honor And Distinction’
The Daily Caller ^ | 6/3/2014 | Brendan Bordelon

Posted on 06/04/2014 7:36:36 AM PDT by Beave Meister

Deputy national security advisor Tony Blinken struggled to cover for his boss Susan Rice on Tuesday, backtracking from her contention that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction” in the face of tough questions from NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell.

Mitchell confronted Blinken over Rice’s Sunday claim that Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction” — an assertion almost immediately disproven by scores of Bergdahl’s comrades and official Pentagon reports, which show the soldier abandoned his post and may have been seeking to join the Taliban.

“Why did Susan Rice say he served with honor and distinction?” she asked. “It was clear to the military as soon as he left what had happened, according to his former fellow soldiers?”

What “honor” did he exhibit by deserting his post?

What “distinction” did he demonstrate on the battlefield?

He carries no awards and has no honor. He is a traitor and after being found guilty of desertion and/or cowardace in the face of the enemy, needs to be shot at dawn by a squad of his peers.

Make sure you turn off all your home BS detectors when Susan Rice appears on TV.

The truth ... to the Obama administration honor and distinction is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

Something nobody has talked about with Susan Rice jumps out at me. Wonder what others think.

In both Benghazi and this prisoner swap case, Susan Rice was trotted out to go on the Sunday shows, and we are told that she was given “talking points” to discuss.

My problem with this is, why are we dealing with “talking points” in the first place? Why are we being spoon fed talking points, rather than being given the true facts of the situation? Why are they feeding us propaganda rather than discussing the facts of a case?

Secretary of Defense determined, that it was in the national security interest of the United States to get Sgt. Bergdahl back

Huh?

Not really a conflict here. He did serve with honor and distinction, but not for the American side...

If I were Obama, I would announce that Susan Rice will be available on all 5 Sunday talk shows to finally answer all your questions about Fast & Furious, IRS targeting, the VA affair and Obamacare.

They wanted to release those Gitmo prisoners.

They wanted it to look legit.

They wanted to make sure the person they were trading for was a “good” person, in their definition (ie, anti-American),

so they traded 1 turncoat for 5 Taliban leaders.

Yes, it is far more stunning that Andrea was asking those questions than that Susan Rice lied again.

Served the TALIBAN with honor and distinction is what she was referring to and she wasn’t talking to the American people. Susan would rather be labeled a liar than give up her Islamic cause.

What she meant was that he served with honor and distinction until he didn’t serve with honor and distinction.

It’s perfectly clear.

She’ll say an anti-Islamic video posted on YouTube made her say Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

In the WH mind deserting your country is an honor and distinction.

Totally agree. For the WH, the sole goal was springing the Gitmo 5, not rescuing an American soldier (traitor or otherwise.) Bergdahl was simply currency to give the appearance of a deal.

I think, for PR purposes, the WH would have preferred the sham deal be sealed with a real American hero. Certainly, it would give their media sycophants and apologists an easier time of it, too. But the US has no other soldiers in the hands of Islamists, darnitall, so a deserter would have to do.

The Gitmo 5 were outright gifts to our sworn enemies.

Funny ...The heads of state from nations that don't want to kill us get gifts like iPods loaded with the Greatest Hits of Barack Obama, or seeds from Lady O's garden-that-other-people-tend. Those who want to annhilate us get 5 top-ranking officers to help them do just that. Priceless.
