House Homeland Security Chairman Peter King (R-N.Y.) tonight called on U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice to resign from her post in light of comments she made regarding the nature of the attack earlier this month on a U.S. consulate in Libya.
Rice, whose name has been floated as a potential replacement for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told NBC and ABC on Sept. 16 that evidence at the time suggested the attacks that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were "spontaneous." Since then, President Barack Obama has indicated the attacks were, in fact, planned and are being considered "a terrorist attack."
"I believe this was such a failure of foreign policy message and leadership, such a misstatement of facts as were known at the time, and for her to go on all of those shows and to in effect be our spokesman to the world and to be misinforming the American people and our allies in countries around the world, to me, somebody has to pay the price for this," King told CNN. "I think we have to send a clear message and on such a vital as this, where an American ambassador is killed, whereby all the accumulation of evidence at the time, the presumption had to be it was terrorism. ... To rule out terrorism, to say it was not terrorism at the time, to me, was a terrible mistake to make, whether it was it was done intentionally or unintentionally, to show the significance of that, I believe [Rice] should resign.".......

To regain any credibility globally, there needs to be consequences for LibyaGate. No one died during ‘Watergate’.
What the heck took so long? He should be asking for Hillary’s resignation as well as she is responsible for security for the embassies/consulates and her people.
Good for Peter King.
Where are the rest of gelded GOP leaders?
Libyagate is not a flesh wound for the Administration—it is a bleeder.
I also heard that Susan Rice skipped Bibi’s address to the UN. She needs to resign. What a disgrace.
Bolton was on Fox recently, and sort of came to her defense. He held the same position as Rice and said that when the White House tells you to say or do something, you do it or you lose your job.
So, it comes down to how much personal integrity you have.
The rest of the GOP is sticking their finger in the wind.
Where’s Bonehead? Cantor? McConnell?
Well, looking back at it now, the White House knew it was a terror attack all along, but floated this idea that it was protests of a video that had been on youtube for quite some time. And suddenly protests break out all over the ME. If anyone is responsible for the violence in the ME, it is the administration.
she has been chosen as the head that will roll to compensate for obama’s utter failure
John Boehner has not said a WORD through this entire debacle. He MUST be deposed next year, no matter what else happens in the election. I don't know if the RATs have videos of him and his supposed mistress, but perhaps we can convince them to hand them over so WE can end his reign of feckless disgrace once and for all.
sure looks that way. I was hoping for her thighness
Rice needs to be dismissed and never be allowed to be in a position again as a government employee to lie to the American citizens. When Obama starts to personally pay her salary out of his book money, then she can do his lying for him. She works for us. If she’s willing to lie to the people who pay her salary, then she needs to go home to serve as an example for all public employees to remember who they actually work for.
Integrity?? You're taling about Dems...chicago dems
Rice should go... the DCI should go, the DCIA should go, SecState should go... These people lied and people died....
“John Boehner has not said a WORD” He is boozed up smoking a sig with Barry somewhere.. You would think he could at least cry a little...
Where is GOP Speaker Boner?
Rice, Hillary AND Obamanation. All 3 should resign or be fired over this fiasco. they all lied and people died.
and our side can’t even investigate this mess? we have become a 3rd world crap hole
Right. Obama gave the orders, the Islamist terrorists did as told.
