Washington (CNN) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told People Magazine in an interview published Wednesday that she believes the United States "certainly" needs "to break down that highest, hardest glass ceiling" of electing a woman president.
In a wide-ranging interview with the magazine, Clinton talks about health, her thoughts on running for president and, for the first time in years, her husband's affair with Monica Lewinsky, a Clinton White House intern.
(CNN) – It was a sophisticated, high-stakes mission to rescue Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the country's only known prisoner of war in Afghanistan.
And in the midst of all the planning and preparation, for an operation that was years in the making, the White House supposedly forgot to mention what they were doing to the United States Congress.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, got a call from the White House, which "apologized and said it was an oversight," she told reporters.
But Republicans are not satisfied with that explanation.
(CNN) – It has been an unusual return for a man called America's only prisoner of the Afghan war.
Most Americans knew nothing about Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, gone for five years. Their first introduction was a momentous White House Rose Garden event, and the story line that came with it.
(CNN) – When Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl first joined his squad in Afghanistan, he was a "good soldier," says former U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Justin Gerleve, Bergdahl's former squad leader.
"He listened to what we needed to do, and got done what he was asked to do. He was willing to train, and always asked a lot of questions on what needed to happen," says Gerleve.
But the former Army staff sergeant says he believes Bergdahl "totally deserted not only his fellow soldiers, but also his leadership."
