In an interview this morning with CNN, Susan Rice qualified her earlier statement that Bowe Bergdahl “served with honor and distinction”:

“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.”

Of course it is, though no unbiased listener could possibly have drawn the conclusion that she was referring to having volunteered, because she said “served,” and because her excuse raises the possibility that a soldier could be dishonorably discharged with honor and distinction. Presumably, she is attempting to pause the news cycle until the weekend with this nonsense, though I don’t see how this buys the White House much beyond further ridicule.

I'm astounded that someone as intelligent as Susan Rice thinks she can play semantics over her reprehensible statement, and thus retain her integrity.

She lied, or attempted to lie, since no one bought her transparent BS. It's as bad as Bubba disputing the meaning of the word "is". Face it, Susan, the consequence of serial lying, is that you have no credibility. No one is going to buy a used car from you.
