Latest Susan Rice Items
Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice's deceptive Benghazi spin ought to be enough to sink her bid for promotion. Mrs. Rice's infamous talking points insisted that a YouTube video, rather than preplanned terrorism, prompted the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.
Democrats pushed back Sunday against criticism of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan E. Rice for her comments about the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, saying Republicans are wasting time and using Mrs. Rice as a scapegoat.
The White House accused Republicans on Thursday of digging up information that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice owns stock in the company seeking to build the Keystone pipeline, and wouldn't say whether it might harm her potential nomination as Secretary of State.
The editorial team at the Washington Post implied this week that the criticism of United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice is racist. After all, the writer argued, most of the people criticizing Mrs. Rice have low levels of melanin pigment molecules in their skin cells and many of them are leaders from states that 160 years ago flew the flag of the Confederacy. Apparently, this is what goes for elevated discourse today.
President Obama said Wednesday that U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan E. Rice has been "extraordinary" as he sought to boost the embattled diplomat's prospects on Capitol Hill, where she has been trying to smooth the way for a possible promotion to secretary of state but has stumbled in meetings with key Republican senators.
U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice says her early account of the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans in Benghazi was based on the initial intelligence community assessments and was always subject to review and updates.
Lawmakers said Sunday they want to know who had a hand in creating the Obama administration's now-discredited "talking points" about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and why a final draft omitted the CIA's early conclusion that terrorists were involved.
The Accountability Review Board probing the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is subpoenaing documents and conducting interviews behind a veil of secrecy inside the State Department.
U.S. intelligence told President Barack Obama and senior administration officials within 72 hours of the Benghazi tragedy that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region, officials directly familiar with the information told the Washington Guardian on Friday.
