Skip to comments.Rep. Allen West: Ambassador Rice's comments on Libya 'asinine, naive, inept'
Posted on 09/17/2012 8:06:55 AM PDT by COUNTrecount
On Sunday, Rep. Allen West (FL) characterized comments made by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice as "asinine, naive" and "inept" while appearing on Fox News. The Florida Republican made his comments in response to her assertion that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya was a spontaneous reaction to an online anti-Islamic video.
This is a response to a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world, Ambassador Rice told NBC's "Meet the Press." Libyan President Mohammad Magarief, however, told CBS Face the Nation that the assault was definitely planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago and they were planning criminal acts since their arrival.
.Video: Rep. Allen West: Ambassador Rice's comments on Libya 'asinine, naive, inept'.West was asked about Ambassador Rice's claim.
"When I listened to the U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice today, several words came to mind: asinine, naive, inept, incompetent, and borderline ignorant," he said. "Because when you understand that the Egyptian government, their intelligence services, put out a letter talking about a potential threat of attacks and uprisings about a week before this. It was even printed in the Jerusalem Post on 9/11. And anyhow I can tell you having been in a combat zone several times after 9/11, we were always on a higher state of security and alertness on 9/11. It should have been the exact same thing here."
"And for Susan Rice to say that this was not a well coordinated attack first of all, Id have to ask her what is her line of expertise in understanding what a well-coordinated attack is, because this was not happenstance. It was not coincidence. This was well-planned, well-coordinated, and the president there in Libya confirms that, he added.

Stick it to her Col.
The Dems promoted that video hoping to start riots and be able to shut down the first amendment. Then somebody got killed. Isn’t that the way it always happens with their insidious little ploys?
:: Libya was a spontaneous reaction to an online anti-Islamic video. ::
And the automatic weapons and RPGs just appeared by magic.
I watched that interview and Chris Wallace let her spew her lies.
On the rare occasion that he questioned her responses she looked extremely angry.
Perhaps her performance will be a topic tonight on Bret Baier.
Krauthammer’s take will be priceless.
I guess the savages just waited until 9-11 so they can show anger over a movie nobody knew or cared about.
I am beginning to believe that the democrats had him make this movie, and they knew the brotherhood was planning this attack. Now they can use the movie as an excuse so obama doesn’t look inept. I put nothing past them.
I wish there were more like Rep. Allen West. A lot more.
To call UN Ambassador Susam Rice “naive” is to discolor and dilute the trait of naivete. For that would imply that she were being ingenuous or simply artless in her beliefs.
It is a calculated mendacity, a vicious, undercutting attack on all that America has ever stood for, and a complete distortion of reality.
But I do agree with the “asinine” and “inept” part of the description
Nothing is out of the realm of possibility with this regime.
Cong. Michele Bachmann explains reality.
Michelle explains that the OIC is behind the youtube movie in order to ensure that it will become illegal in the US to speak out against Islam. Barack obama is instrumental in this.
Fast & Furious 2.0
I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that the film was actually put out there by a dem operative.
We need to figure out which Amendment they will try to shut down next, and by what means, so that we can call them on it when it happens.
I heard Michelle live on cspan and she was fantastic. Gutsy lady. I agree with her. The movie was not the cause.
Wasn’t the guy an Obama donor?
Anyone other than Col. West would have been seen as picking on the Black Girl.
The 0bama Administration is playing both the RACE card
and the GENDER card by sending out Amb Rice to cover for Hildebeast.
Anyone other than Col. West would have been seen as picking on the Black Girl.
He must be referring to this idiot:
I think Chris asked the questions and let her go on to show how ridiculous she was. He even made mention to that when he had the panel later when he said he asked a question and then he said to the panel “and she didn’t like it.” So, I think Chris knew what he was doing.
I think I read that. If so, then it’s possible he was assigned the task of making this little “film” which the administration could “conveniently” point to.
This whole thing was planned and then staged. It’s pretty obvious the planning was done by an Al-Queda type organization, but who did the accompanying staging of the so-called riots? Which news organization was the first to report that the “rioters” were rioting against a film? Did they interview a “rioter” who said it was all about the film? If so, the “rioter” could have been a plant. I just want to know how this “film meme” got out there. The administration is doubling-down on this, which leads me to believe they planted a person or persons to promote it.
“Rice served in the Clinton administration in various capacities: at the National Security Council from 1993 to 1997; as Director for International Organizations and Peacekeeping from 1993 to 1995; and as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for African Affairs from 1995 to 1997.
At the time of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, Rice reportedly said, “If we use the word ‘genocide’ and are seen as doing nothing, what will be the effect on the November [congressional] election?” “
Kinda similar to her current take on things. Avoid truth to help a campaign.
Madeleine Notbright was her mentor.
Clearly Alan West is a racist.
so the Dept of Homeland security has been compromised by homosexuals at the top. (stupid conduct etc.)
the state department is apparently equally compromised, based on Rice’s comments.
Was using her a lame effort to confuse her with condi rice?
I love how we are told, as Americans, that we cannot lump all the Muslims into one group. If one of them does something bad, we have to look at THEM as an individual and their action is a reflection upon them solely, not the religion as a whole.
On the flipside, when something happens here that Muslims dont like, they hold the entire nation accountable, calling for DEATH DEATH DEATH to everyone and every thing American. Somehow they feel excluded from the collectivist attitude they press on others.
If they cannot learn to grow up and join the modern world they should be removed from it along with any practices that violate basic human rights. Anyone who supports violence as a response to hurt feelings is less than an animal and has no place in civilized society. That goes for any and all religious cry babies who cant think for themselves, not just nutjob Muslims.
We need to deal with these people based on reality and start giving back exactly what we get from them. They worship death, let’s give it to them. They worship tyrannical abuse of power, let us wield it over them and treat them like the brat children they are.
I agree. He is the best we have. He still needs to explain his vote for/approving the nazi Germany style NDAA, indefinite detention of American citizens, bill tho.
The uprisings in the middle east are akin to the 1968 Tet offensive to the Johnson administration for that epic fail we call Obamination.
You are confusing that with full-stuffed suicide belts but, you may be correct for sand-ni**ers older than 12.
After (too much) reading about this, I am 100% sure leftist operatives and muzlims (but I repeat myself) made this bogus movie and spread the word to all the damned muzlim countries so they could start attacking US interests in the name of retaliating against a bogus movie none of them have seen.
