SOTU Scoop

Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, June 6, 2014.

1. Rice defends Bergdahl comments. National Security Adviser Susan Rice says her praise of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was fitting despite questions about whether he deserted his Army post before being captured by the Taliban. "I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this," Rice told CNN. "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." In a television interview last Sunday, Rice said Bergdahl served his country with "honor and distinction." Three retired U.S. generals offer their very different perspectives on Bergdahl and the deal that led to his release this Sunday on State of the Union.
