WATCH: Susan Rice struggles through Sunday morning interviews following Bergdahl release

Former UN ambassador and current National Security Advisor Susan Rice should probably refrain from making the rounds on the Sunday morning shows in the aftermath of major foreign policy events. While her responses on Sunday to questions about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s release may not be quite as egregious as her now infamous insistence that the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya was in response to a YouTube video, she certainly didn’t do the Administration any favors.

During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Candy Crowley asked, point blank, if the United States had negotiated with terrorists. Rice initially dodged the question, but Crowley asked again.

“I think the question now is,” Crowley asked, “and you point to the kinds of warfare we’re having now, that no longer can it be said that the U.S. doesn’t negotiate with terrorists?”

“I wouldn’t put it that way,” Rice said. “When we are in battles with terrorists and terrorists take an American prisoner, that prisoner still is a U.S. serviceman or woman.”

On radio this morning, Glenn played a portion of Rice’s appearance on ABC’s This Week. George Stephanopoulos grilled Rice on several points, but Glenn found his question about whether or not Bergdahl could face disciplinary action if it is found he did indeed desert his post.

Watch the interview below (applicable video begins at 7-minute mark):

“Wow,” Pat said disgusted.

Glenn was not impressed with Rice’s dismissal of the questions.

“What you say on this is,” Glenn concluded. “‘Look, we are glad to have any American soldier back. And because nobody needs to be held by somebody as brutal as this, we’re going nurse him back to health. It’s great to have him back, we have to do an investigation and we’ll take it from there.’”

      she probably cleans as well as she talks, so the rooms would be worse than when she showed up.

    she needs a teleprompter so valorie jarrett can tell who what she’s supposed to say, just like obama.

      She did have a teleprompter. Don’t you think that they had known the questions in advanced and wrote the answers for a teleprompter.
      Watch again and see, she doesn’t look anywhere but straight into the prompter and her answers are like a person reading with a few ahhs and umms thrown in for effect.

        True, as she ‘regurgitates the regime’s answers to Already Known ???”

    All that was, was talking points. She didn’t address a single question, only repeated the words she was told to say. Why can’t a single moderator get these people to answer the question that was actually asked?

    The fact that this person (I say person because she doesn’t really look or sound like a woman to me…just sayin”). Anyway, the fact that this clearly incompetent person still has a job with the Obama administration show just how inept Obama is.

    I’m REALLY getting tired of this “Obama Bootlicking Liar, getting out there and doing Her Cheerleading for the “Liar In Chief”. She showed HER allegience to Him, when she carried out his False Story on Benghazi, but—-she got her reward by covering up for him…got her promotion. Sickening, and her dumb azz should have been fired, if this was NOT a second rate, criminal regime of DemoThugs.

    This lady is a dimwit…..she really did just memorize all the talking points and regurgitate….I don’t think she had an individual thought. BRAIN WASHED. …..and by the way – “served with distinction and honor?” Is that the adjectives used today for deserters? PLEASE, bring back the other Rice – CONDI!!!

    I’m so lost Susan Rice is cool but Condalisa rice is not. we are standing up for a guy that betrayed his country and not for a guy who took a wrong turn at the Mexican borderwe’re proud of a father that looks like he could go star in duck dynasty and is happy about his son being a traitor and not Phil Robertson that took a stand for what the majority of america believes. What is going on with us? Have we become so cought up with our own lives that we just dont care what happens in the world much less locally. Have we gotten so disconnected that all we seek is cats playing piano?

    Deserters were once shot for that act.

    Susan Rice, same liar that pushed the Benghazi stories about the attacks being a result of a film protest. She, like her boss, is a disgrace to this Country. Why would anyone trust her, or for that matter, have the audacity and stupidity of using her as a mouthpiece for this illegally brokered terrorist transaction with the Taliban. This joker Bergdahl was a malcontent, and a turncoat. He walked away from his post. 5 of his follow marines in his deployment lost their lives, trying to recover him from the enemy. Anyone remember the Rolling Stone magazine reporter, Michael Hastings, who was killed by the Feds last year in a fiery ‘car crash’ that occurred in his new Mercedes Benz as he was somehow going 130 miles per hour on surface streets of Santa Monica, CA at 3 am, the day after he had emailed colleagues about needing to lay low, because the Feds were investigating his story on the NSA? Yea, that guy. That same reporter was actually being investigated because of some ‘controversial reporting’ he was involved with, which included ….wait for it, THIS GUY, Sargent Bergdahl. Hastings’ report reveals private email excerpts. According to Hastings’ story, Bergdahl wrote the emails. The excerpts include comments about being “ashamed to even be an American,” and the threat that “if this deployment is lame, I’m just going to walk off into the mountains of Pakistan.” Now that we see this guy Bergdahl at the center of a very controversial prisoner exchange, which was carried out illegally by the POTUS, not having prior approval to do so from Congress, and we have given up 5 known Taliban terrorist leaders for this guy…I have to start connecting the dots and saying to myself, something REALLY stinks here. Who is going to investigate the FBI, or for that matter, the DOJ? When we have crooks running everything, who will make them accountable?

    I dont see how she struggled. The questions were pretty much softballs, as you would expect, but this is pretty light tap dancing for this administration.

    aye yohhhh Rice, these prisoners are thousands of miles away, do you seriously think that they will abide by it?? they are terrorists its not like they care.

    there isn’t a human being on the planet who makes me sicker to hear, than susan rice. You left Chris Stevens behind, and yet preen like a peacock to broker a “deal”, to bring back, by the descriptions at the time, a deserter. How many Americans had to die looking for that piece of garbage? You’re a despicable waste of carbon mrs rice. You, and the entire administration, and you become more despicable every day you let Sgt. Tahmooressi sit in a Mexican prison. You go to hell.

    Taken in battle?? She lies as much as Obama does. Bergdahl was a deserter, and was AWOL. He is not a POW at all. He is a traitor, plain and simple. He was ashamed of being an American, sympathized with the Taliban, and went in active search of the Taliban to join and help them.
