State Dept. Spokeswoman Knows Circumstances of Bergdahl's Capture Better Than Squad Mates

I find State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf to be the most irritating voice out of Washington D.C. today. Harf, 32, a graduate of Indiana University with a University of Virginia masters, worked as a CIA analyst in 2006-08 before becoming a CIA spokesperson in the Obama administration's first term, then a foreign affairs spokesperson for the Obama campaign.

In this recent exchange carried in the conservative Washington Free Beacon, Harf had the nerve to proclaim she had a better understanding of whether returned POW Bowe Bergdahl deserted his combat post than did his squad mates:
When Fox News reporter Lucas Tomlinson asked, “Does the State Department consider Sergeant Bergdahl to be a deserter?” Harf replied, “The State Department — no, Lucas. Look, what we’ve said is we are going to learn the facts about what happened here.”
“He’s been in captivity, Lucas. I think he’s probably the person who knows best what happened on that night,” Harf said.
Tomlinson shot back, “Well, I think his squad mates have the best indication what happened that night.”
“I don’t think that that’s the case,” Harf responded.
Here's the video:
