John Kerry defends Susan Rice
politico44 ^ | 9/28/12 | BYRON TAU

Posted on 09/29/2012 8:56:19 AM PDT by ColdOne

"I'm deeply disturbed by efforts to find the politics instead of finding the facts in this debate," Kerry said in a Friday statement.

"I’m particularly troubled by calls for Ambassador Rice’s resignation. She is a remarkable public servant for whom the liberation of the Libyan people has been a personal issue and a public mission," Kerry said. "She's an enormously capable person who has represented us at the United Nations with strength and character."

The only difference between Susan Rice and Baghdad Bob is that we can be fairly certain of Bob's sexual orientation.

That settles it! If John F'in Kerry says so, end of analysis! Do I need a sarc tag?

2799 days since 01/30/2005 when "Hanoi" John Kerry promised, on national TV, to sign form SF-180 and release his military records.

You mean this same John Kerry?

Mr. President, I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the President of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia.

I have that memory which is seared — seared — in me ....

Exhibit 25, Congressional Record - Senate of March 27, 1986, page 3594.

The only thing factual in that article is where Kerry says,
“I am deeply disturbed...”

John Kerry lied to congress; Bill Clinton lied to Congress; Erick Holder perjured himself; Hillary Clinton is responsible for the death of an American Ambassador, Chris Stevens. Obama breaks his oath of office to Defend and Protect the United States Constitution and goes around Congress. People.....We are charged with defending our nation and our Constitution as our government employees have forgotten their jobs...isn't it about time we demanded they be fired?

Call your Senators and congressmen, demand they protect this country from those leaders who are endangering it. John F. Kerry should have been let go years ago.....

"...if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal the prisoners of war would be returned."-J.F. Kerry

"Under questioning from the Committee, Kerry referred to the democratically elected government of South Vietnam -- our allies -- as a "dictatorial regime, the Thieu-Ky-Khiem regime," while respectfully calling the North Vietnamese communist regime we were fighting by its oxymoronic official name, the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, and the murderous Viet Cong's political arm by their preferred "Provisional Revolutionary Government.":
http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/chavez042804.asp
___________________________________________________________

June, 1970 -- Kerry joins Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), a national veterans group that is part of the Peoples Coalition for Peace and Justice. The PCPJ is a broad coalition of local and national organizations, including the Communist Party, USA, "committed to conducting demonstrations aimed at ending the war in Indochina, and poverty, racism and injustice at home." The VVAW, CCI and PCPJ all have headquarters at 156 Fifth Avenue in New York City. VVAW Executive Secretary Al Hubbard, a former Black Panther, is also on the coordinating committee of the PCPJ. Hubbard soon appoints Kerry to the VVAW's Executive Committee, bypassing the normal election process.

"Shortly after taking office in 1985, Kerry and Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa went on a fact-finding trip to Nicaragua, where they met with Daniel Ortega (right) and other Sandinistas. The trip was criticized when the Sandinistas cemented ties with Moscow."

And I am truly troubled with reading about Kerry’s statements to congress about our troops (twice) and his throwing his (some other persons medals actually) over the fence at the WH.

Except for the time he spent Christmas in Cambodia.

I believe he flew in there to singlehandedly save a bunch of CIA agents.
Of dourse, it's all Extra, Extra Top Secret Crypto, Need To Know, Hush Hush.
So there is no actual record of the trip.

But John Kerry was the inspiration for the John Rambo character - Just ask him.

If only we could find someone who focused on the politics instead of the facts... wait, that was Obama who stuck with the "popular uprising" fib for about two weeks until the entire world knew it was a well planned and executed terrorist attack. Then he tried to shove the old story down the memory hole and have his people claim that Obama always knew that it was terrorism.

Uh...hey Sen Gigolo....your comrade Obama made this merely about politics when he lied to the American people repeatedly about the nature of this attack in order to protect his political hide and his even more dangerous and potentially treasonous foreign policy!!

We will get to the bottom of this.....Obama and his administration’s days of high crimes and misdemeanors are coming to an end..whether at the ballot box or impeachment proceedings. I would suggest that you and your fellow democrats and the corrupt American media see the writing on the wall before the Marxist Kenyan takes you all down with him.

We have an America Ambassador DEAD...and 3 American servicemen DEAD! Our embassy is in a smoking ruin and THE ALQEDA FLAG is flying over it for Christ’s sake!! This is not about politics you stupid moron!! It is about the safety and security of our great nation and your president’s lying and treasonous foreign policy!!

End of rant!

Susan Rice is “remarkable,” all right.

Worst. Ambassador. Ever. And that’s saying a lot!

Ambassador Rice told bold-faced lies on every news outlet in America. Leon Panetta stated in a news conference that the Administration was aware that this was a coordinated terror attack within 24 hours after the incident occurred.

Ms. Rice appeared on the Sunday News shows 5 days after the attacks had occurred claiming that it was anger about the film, a film that nobody apparently has ever seen and that was released in June, but not talked about by any press agency until an embassy staffer in Egypt apparently under his own initiative and without any guidance from the White House, decided to take it upon himself to issue and apology lamenting it’s existence.

An apology that, after criticism from Romney, the White House at first decided to disavow, and then after it was learned that Ambassador Stevens had been killed, they embraced whole heartily as the excuse for his demise and their incompetence.

The lame stream media was more than willing to swallow this administration line, but even they had to begin to questioning such a lame excuse.

There will need to be investigations, and they should start with this Egyptian embassy employee... I highly doubt that a lower level employee would be issuing such statements without some sort of authority or guidance. In fact, they should be put in protective custody immediately, lest they be sent to some new posting in Siberia or even worse in Libya.

Kerry has no problem with that since he has a very straight face - some might say it's almost horse-like.
