Posted on 09/28/2012 6:25:24 AM PDT by Evil Slayer
The woman who went on five different Sunday talk shows a week ago to lie to the American people about the attack in Libya on 9/11, saying it was a spontaneous protest when the administration knew it was in fact a terrorist attack 24 hours after it occurred, skipped Israeli Ambassador Benjamin Netanyahu's speech yesterday at the U.N. General Assembly in New York City. U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice instead decided to go to a lunch with foreign ministers. There is no word on whether Rice's decision to skip Netanyahu's speech was spontaneous or planned in advance.
At a time when Iran is closer than ever to a nuclear weapon, it seems our U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. doesn't really care about the only true democracy in the Middle East, Israel. Just like this administration doesn't seem to care about using the word terrorism to describe the war we are in. This move by Rice came just days after President Obama blew Netanyahu off so he could go party with Jay-Z, Beyonce, the ladies from The View and David Letterman.

I cannot for one minute think this was not planned. Not even if she was a rank amateur.
“”She can sit through Ahmanutjobs speech””
I wasn’t about to watch it so I had no idea who walked out. Who did?
I want to see that witch on every Sunday morning show this next Sunday! AND on every network so we can see her slime her way through her excuses!!!!
This admin is the enemy of America
I did not watch Ahmanutjob’s speech either just read reports that the US delegation sat through the whole thing. Obama and his minions are playing a very dangerous game and the chickens are coming home to roost in the form of Islamists controlling all of the countries that Obama touted and supported in the so called Arab Spring.
I suspect that the FBI is not being allowed into Benghazi because they may find the proof that the weapons used to attack our consulate and kill 4 Americans were supplied by the Obama Administration. Mark my word.
same as a walk-out??
it is now a matter of history!
It is probably a good thing that she missed it. Her self-esteem would have suffered dearly if she had to sit and listen to PM Netanyahu’s Exquisitely Nuanced and Obtuse dissertation that was far too complex and intellectually challenging for her to understand.
Even More frustrating would have been that deep, abstract, and esoteric graphic, which has left all the liberal antisemites scratching their heads instead of their toucasses.
Do I need a /s tag?
...or on direct orders from the White House (best odds).
I don’t think so. He tends to be somewhat independent of mainstream Dem thinking.
You mean FIRED by the American public. None of this s*!t would fly at any employer I ever worked for.
We have Israel’s back, and won’t return it until our demands are met./WH
Koch, a Democrat who campaigned in Florida for George W. Bush in 2004, said he wants Obama to shift his stance on the Iran issue.
"We should say that an attack upon Israel is an attack upon the United States and that we will militarily respond," he said. "That is a very key statement in my judgment."

Susan Rice blew off Netanyahu UN speech
Our UN ambassador, last heard from selling the lie that Benghazi was a spontaneous response to an internet video on 5 Sunday shows, was simply too busy to honor the Prime Minister of Israel’s speech to the UN General Assembly with her attendance. This body language amplified Obama’s snub of Netanyahu when both men were at the UN, communicating a clear message to the mullahs in Tehran and the rest of the world: The US is backing away from its relationship to Israel. And after the election, Obama will have a lot more flexibility.
“And after the election, Obama will have a lot more flexibility.”
—— my thoughts exactly!
Video here also on the subject in interview on Greta with Bolton...
Penelopsire: [Not that there is any equivalency...but] no one from US delegation planned to attend Ahmanutjobs speech. Unless they changed their mind, no one from US was there.
“Over the past couple of days, we’ve seen Mr. Ahmadinejad once again use his trip to the U.N. not to address the legitimate aspirations of the Iranian people but to instead spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against Israel,” Erin Pelton, a spokesman for United States U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, said in a statement.
“It’s particularly unfortunate that Mr. Ahmadinejad will have the platform of the U.N. General Assembly on Yom Kippur, which is why the United States has decided not to attend,” Pelton said.
Apparent excuse for absence today-— Rice declined to go “because the speeches went long today.”
....Another scheduling conflict. lol!
[From the Greta video above] Instead of going to Bibi’s UN speech, Hillary and Susan Rice went to lunch with foreign ministers of 5 permanent members of Security Council.
Only US contingent at UN speech today were the envoy and our Ambassador to Israel.
“There is a very wicked undercurrent going on in our government right now.”
YES there is... “very wicked undercurrent” -— Perfect choice of words.
“They” are becoming even more emboldened-— like “they” were right after the election. One gets the feeling “they” know the outcome of the election, while citizens remain in the dark.
Rice missed the speech? I bet Bibi’s pissed: not just for the obvious reasons, but because that visual aid that was simple enough for a first grader to understand was probably made expressly for her!
“What in the hell is going on here? She can sit through Ahmanutjobs speech (breaking decades of US protocol to walk out) and then doesnt go to Netanyahus speech??
There is a very wicked undercurrent going on in our government right now.”
You’re just half right on that.
Right about the “wicked” part.
But it is no longer an “undercurrent”. The actions and the intent behind the actions of this administration regarding Israel and the muslim world are quite overt, and intentionally so.
They want us to know just where they stand.
There. Fixed the headline.
On the aaron klein show he specifically stated that he didn’t have a problem with obama, and spoke on behalf of him to his jewish bretheren.
There is a very wicked undercurrent going on in our government right now.
Yes indeed, and very frightening given the fact that many Americans remain blithely unaware of these troubling developments.
BTW "missing" Netanyahu's speech and refusing to meet with him is much more than an "oversight" or a "schedule conflict": it is sending a statement with potentially huge ramifications. In UN parlance, intentionally avoiding a speech signals the rejection of what the speaker says and stands for.
What I find most frightening is the fact that this administration evidently has learned NOTHING from the Libya fiasco and the collapse of it's much-heralded "Arab spring", and continues full-bore ahead with it's policy of appeasement of Muslim extremism and undercutting the only stable, democratic ally in the region.
The cold hostility this administration exhibits towards Israel is nothing less than breathtaking. Who would have imagined such a sea change could have occurred in our great nation? May God help us!
Thanks for the correction on whether the US delegation attended Iran’s address. I could have sworn I read somewhere that they did. Perhaps it was Morsi’s speech they sat through now that I think about it.
I was just doing some reading about the whole timeline and attack( I was trout fishing in the Colorado outback when it happened and missed a lot of particulars)...anyway a few quick questions.
What happened to the other people evacuated from the safe house? Have they been interviewed?
Has anyone answered the questions on how the safe house location was compromised?
Where is Hillary’s gal pal Muslim brotherhood plant Huma Abedin? What did she know and when did she know it?
Why was the rescue force sent from Tripoli told to expect 10 evacuees yet there were 37 on the ground waiting for rescue? So who were these people? Where are they now? Reuters had a report that many were injured, yet we have read nothing of who they were and how they were injured.
It seems to me that we are missing the boat just focusing on the administration lies of whether it was a terrorist attack or not. There are more fundamental questions here about foxes in the hen house and who exactly was responsible for the lax security.
