REMEMBER THIS?????? SEPTEMBER 11th 2012, Benghazi, Libya. Ambassador Stevens murdered by Al-Qaeda, not by an angry mob, or small time protesters.
So Ambassador Susan Rice decides not to be put forward as nominee for Secretary of State to replace Hillary Clinton.
In a letter to President Obama (12/13/12) she said:
“I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy disruptive and costly— to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities”.
Cue a list of intimidation and claims from the liberal media and Democrat lawmakers, who called the legitimate charges against Ambassador Rice as racist and sexist.
Let’s look at the facts for a second:
Ambassador Rice went on the record (5 times) in saying that Sept 11 Benghazi attacks were due to a publication of a movie, rather than terrorism: On Meet the Press 9/16/12 she said as follows:
“But let’s remember what has transpired over the last several days. This is a response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world. Obviously, our view is that there is absolutely no excuse for violence and that-- what has happened is condemnable, but this is a-- a spontaneous reaction to a video, and it’s not dissimilar but, perhaps, on a slightly larger scale than what we have seen in the past with with the cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.”
That turned out, as we all knew or know, to be completely false and she got found out.
It is quite simple really. She was misinformed by her boss and she got caught out trying to cover it up.
What bothers me with this administration is that when all else fails, they throw the race card or try to destroy and opponent.
Obama did it to Romney during the election with Bain; he is trying to do that with McCain, Graham & the GOP, who are questioning, legitimately the Benghazi issue.
However, I can show you another way that criticism can be handled and that is through integrity.
· Condoleezza Rice – National Security Director under George W. Bush, said that Iraq had WMD.
When she received criticism, did the GOP cry SEXISM?
· Colin Powell – Secretary of State under George W. Bush, went up to the United Nations and said that Saddam had WMD. He was criticized but you didn’t hear the GOP scream RACISM!
