Skip to comments.President Obama Plays The Susan Rice Card On Benghazi
Posted on 11/15/2012 4:13:48 PM PST by raptor22
Leadership: Obama admits sending our U.N. ambassador, who had "nothing to do with Benghazi," to explain Benghazi on five Sunday talk shows "at the request of the White House" with talking points "provided to her."
Considering this was President Obama's first press conference in eight months, his bluster that if "Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me" regarding Benghazi is a bit odd.
When the questions needed to be asked and answers needed to be given, both the president and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were nowhere to be found.
Why wasn't our secretary of state, whose department received real-time emails that our Benghazi consulate was under a terrorist attack for which the al-Qaida-linked group Ansar al-Sharia was taking credit, on these talk shows? Why not send the person who knew about prior attacks and requests for additional security that were denied and the diplomats who warned the consulate was surrounded by terrorist training camps?
Obama seemed more outraged that the rumored successor to Clinton at State was being criticized for parroting an obvious lie than by the terrorist attack that killed a U.S. ambassador, two former Navy SEALs and another diplomat. He and his administration knew that very night, the night he flew off to Las Vegas to campaign, that terrorists killed the four Americans, yet he sent his U.N. ambassador out to lie for him.
Does Obama really expect us to believe "she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her" when the CIA station chief and the National Counterterrorism Center chief had said it was an organized terrorist attack with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades and there was in fact no mob?

Sounds like Obama admitted he sent her out to lie.
AwwWww. Poor, little Suzie. Guess woman aren’t equal after all, eh, Bronco?
She is as foolish as he is.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
Something to e-mail to every talking head, every Senator and every House rep.
There, better. He sent her because she would not be challenged by the over-sensitive media.
Go after Obamas Ambassador in DC and youve got a problem. Kill one in Benghazi, and you dont.
Completely sexist, with Obama basically saying this professional woman cannot be held accountable. She is only a clerk, she knows no better. But she should be Secy of State.
“Sen. McCain and Sen. Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me” The “others” is Sen. Kelly Ayotte. Two mean old white men going after a poor administration black woman. Wouldn’t sound the same with a woman attacking Rice too.
The MSM decided who would be President because of their deep and faithful love for Obama. Their love is true and everlasting.
That is a brilliant summary. You nailed it!
Kudos to Greta Van Sustern on her show last Night . Greta is not known as a Conservative and she is the only Host I Have seen on TV ask the Question of What was the CIA doing In Benghazi? Were they Running Guns to the Syrian Rebels?
She asked this of the supposed Right wing attack dog Dana Rohrbacher Representative from Californis,Yeah the same one who yesterday called Obama a Liar about this Coverup. But even Mr. Attack dog ran for the tall Hills when Greta asked that one.
Folks this dog and Pony Show we are Watching is a Massive Coverup,and BOTH sides Know what Happened and NO one wants to go there. The public is so used to being led by the ring in their Nose they cant even awake from their Stupor and their Brainwashers and think Critically and ask that same question that Greta asked and she has been grappling with for some time,Why would people make up such stupidity about a Video,What was Stephens and the CIA doing in the hot Bed of Alqueda,Benghazi? Greta hit it,They were running Guns to the Syrian rebels,Alqueda Jihadists. That is the rosetta Stone here folks all this why did No One Help,Blah Blah Blah,
Why are we arming the Jihadists that are trying to Destroy us? Because Obama wants to Help in creating the Caliphate for the Muslim Brotherhood. He would love to keep talking about the sex scandal with Petraeus,or his poor UN ambassador Susan Rice. Wake up folks
This entire administration is filled with pre-determined dummies which Obama can throw under the bus to keep himself from being blamed.
How many of these people thought they were going to be media & judicial sacrificial lambs in return for ‘serving’ “the Won”???
