Colleville-sur-Mer, FRANCE (CNN) -- President Barack Obama's national security adviser said Friday that her full-throated praise of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was appropriate given the former Taliban prisoner's willingness to go to war for his country -- despite questions about whether or not he deserted his Army colleagues.
Susan Rice, who on Sunday said Bergdahl served the United States with "honor and distinction," told CNN in an interview that she was speaking about the fact the Idaho native enlisted and went to Afghanistan in the service of his country.
"I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this," Rice said. "But what I was referring to was the fact that this was a young man who volunteered to serve his country in uniform at a time of war. That, in and of itself, is a very honorable thing."(continued)

Susan Rice is what government service has become in America.
If she knew who Benedict Arnold was, she would probably say it of him.
When he shot at US troops, helped with IEDs to kill
US troops, and helped with maps to kill US troops,
he was a traitor.
THAT is “HONORABLE” only to other traitors
like Susan Rice and Hussein Obama-the-Unvetted.
In Riceworld if I join the Army for one day I have served with honor and distinction from that nexus until eternity... regardless of what I do afterwards. Let me think... I still remember Freepers posting years ago that Palin was sooo unacceptable that Obama became a default option.
There must be some profound reward for Susan Rice, such that she will repeat absolute nonsense for the administration, multiple times. Either that,or she’s dumb as soup.
Major Nidal Hassan also served honorably, until he decided to commit a little “workplace violence”. Bob
The left never changes the narrative. They never admit a mistake.
Sue....Liar cum laude
Low Information Executive Service.
Susan Rice views this as an excercise to hone her lying skills. Same as Obama, John Kerry and other ObamaTrons do. They like to see how good they are at getting the American public to believe their BS
So, maybe his signing up was honorable, but certainly not his service thereafter.
Dumb as soup...................
He volunteered to do something he did not do. With Libs intentions are the only thing that matter.
His brother was one of the best intelligence operatives to ever live.
Susan Rice — Stoned or stupid...you decide.
“she was speaking about the fact the Idaho native enlisted and went to Afghanistan in the service of his country”
That is what they have been teaching our young. They get awards just for showing up to school and functions. Then they think all they have to do when they get a job is just show up.
This is the the most selfish, arrogant and ignorant Whitehouse administration ever. They are seeking advantage. Truth and results don't matter.
