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 Rices Sunday claim that Bergdahl served with honor and distinction an assertion almost immediately disproven by scores of Bergdahls 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?

“I never said that, you can’t prove I ever said that, and if you tell anyone I said that, I’ll sue you.”
Pot must legal at the White Hut.
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.
Gee, maybe she should have axed to see Birkenstock’s personnel file before she lied again?
Good night and F-U San Diego.
She will say whatever they put in front of her
The truth ... to the Obama administration honor and distinction is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
Andrea Mitchell actually asked those hard questions......hey what did they do with the real Andrea?????
She will get the memo soon i am thinking.
He honored Bill Ayers, Mark Rudd, and the Weather Underground.
Just when the Zero and his crew couldn’t look anymore foolish they top themselves.
I have the feeling that this admin isn’t planning on letting this guy live much longer.
When BOR said of Rice last night, “Is she a moron?” I did a spit take.
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?
Do you feel safe with the Dim Bulb Susan Rice as National Security Advisor ?
“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.”
On national TV.
Not really a conflict here. He did serve with honor and distinction, but not for the American side...
I want to see this administration raked over the coals on this one.
They are blatantly traitors.
