Vultures Land On K Street

Originally published on Thu June 5, 2014 11:40 am

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. There's a certain kind of news story for which you simply must rely on The Washington Post. This is that story. The Post published pictures of vultures on K Street. Washingtonians know K Street as the classic address for Washington lobbyists. A Post reporter got one punch line after another when asking passersby what they thought of vultures roosting on a K Street rooftop, like the bird variety. And that sounds appropriate.

If It Comes Time To Negotiate With Terrorists, Never Say Never

Originally published on Thu June 5, 2014 11:40 am

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Now, the swap for Bergdahl prompted many people to recall a truism about American foreign-policy. The line is that America does not negotiate with terrorists, a principle that seemed to have been violated here.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

In fact, that truism has not often been true. America has negotiated with terrorists and so have other governments.

Questions Abound Over Why Bergdahl Left Afghan Post

Originally published on Thu June 5, 2014 11:40 am

Transcript

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Now, the U.S. military is saying very little about Sergeant Bergdahl's condition now that he's in a military hospital in Germany. Army leaders have said that once he is determined to be healthy, they will investigate the circumstances of his capture and whether he broke any military laws and should be prosecuted. For more, we're joined in our studio by NPR Pentagon correspondent, Tom Bowman. Tom, good morning.

U.S. Policy In Syria Could No Longer Be Defended, Ex-Ambassador Says

Originally published on Wed June 4, 2014 7:32 am

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

It's MORNING EDITION from NPR News. Good morning, I'm David Greene.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

And I'm Steve Inskeep. President Obama's former point man on Syria resigned because he can no longer defend U.S. policy there. Ambassador Robert Ford was once known for dramatic gestures supporting Syria's opposition. But Ford says, as the uprising became a civil war he was frustrated by limited U.S. support for rebels. And even now, Ford told the "PBS NewsHour" he is not sure the Obama administration is doing enough.

Cesar Chavez Is Running For Congress In Arizona

Originally published on Wed June 4, 2014 7:32 am

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The old joke says Chicago is the place where the dead can vote. Arizona is where the dead can run. Cesar Chavez is running for Congress. Yes, the legendary labor activist died more than 20 years ago, but in a heavily Latino district, a long-shot candidate in the Democratic primary sought to improve his chances by changing his name to Cesar Chavez. He hopes to do better than in a previous run when his name was Scott Fistler. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
