Ed Henry to Earnest: "Do You Still Believe That Bowe Bergdahl Served With Honor And Distinction?"


ED HENRY, FOX NEWS: Do you still believe that Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction?

JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE: Ed, I don't want to be in a position of commenting on an ongoing military justice investigation. There are obviously complicated issues related to the chain of command because I'm a representative of the commander in chief, so I'm not going to speculate on the ongoing investigation.

HENRY: Susan Rice, she also reports to the commander in chief here at the White House as National Security Advisor and some months ago she went out and said he served with honor and distinction. So was that a mistake?

EARNEST: Ed, she was obviously commenting before any military investigation had been conducted.

HENRY: There were allegations that he was a deserter at that time.

EARNEST: So at this point now that there is an ongoing military investigation into this matter I'm just not going to comment on the matter.
