U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice told Republican senators that her televised statements last month on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi were based entirely on information she was given by the intelligence community.

But there was a report within 24 hours the intelligence sources believed it was an organized attack.
Ha ! Ha ! Ha !
You forgot to use your own brain !
you do as told....whether it’s a lie or not...the cic said so
Rice ~ “ ... the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi were based entirely on information she was given by the intelligence community. “
That report was from BEFORE Obozo went to bed . Obviously you didn’t catch the updates ,... for at least 10 days !
Rice’s statement is as rediculous as the FBI not being able to get into the country for 21 days . Right !! Sure ,.. there was no contamination of the site !
Rice would have been more professional if she had watched CNN three days after the mobbing of the embassey as they had it right , and already had the ambassador’s journal !
But no ! Rice went on for seven more days with five interviews in one day .
So the real question:
What was the political reason for blaming the film/trailer?
The administration wanted it to be spontaneous and an angry mob. That makes it random. Mid east chaos.
Planned attack means the administration dropped the ball.
oppsssssssss. i figured it out the first day. it happened on 9/11.
i am not a scholar. but i am not stupid either. this is a no brainer. perhaps rice has no brains. that is logical.
“Rice on Benghazi: Blame the intelligence community”
Who didn’t know this was coming. Too bad the Intelligence Community doesn’t push back in a very “mortal” way.
I remember something said earlier that Rice was the perfect puppet for this propaganda assignment.
As U.N. Ambassaador, Rice has no real access to intelligence, other than what the State Dept. gives her. She was totally in the dark...except for the scripted remarks.
That Obama bus certainly left a wide treadmark on her back. I wouldn’t be surprised if she resigned before Obama is defeated. She’s a laaaaughingstock at the U.N. Who in the world can believe a thing she says?
The first part of the apparent campaign, officials said, was the false information provided to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, who appeared on Sunday television shows after the attack to say the event was a spontaneous response to an anti-Muslim video trailer posted online.
Officials said Rice was given the false information to use in media appearances in order to promote the excuse that the obscure video was the cause of the attack, and not the Islamic concept of jihad.
The incompetent Susan Rice is blaming the incompetent intelligence community. The real problem is that all the money for security went to buy Obama phones, to advertise Obama phones, and the make sure everybody knew that the phones came from Obama, especially in the voting booth.
All this other stuff, just a bump in the road.
Imagine having to go on Tom Joyner’s show to shore up your husband’s standing amongst the Dems most reliable votes. That’s why Obama lost so badly in the debates. He still has to shore up his base and cannot move to the center to capture independents.
BTW, the line works. A black guy was telling me he was voting for Obama because the GOP Congress wouldn’t work with him and he deserved more time. I said, “Well the Dems still control the Senate and what about the first two years when they controlled both houses.” He looked at me a little queer and then said, “they did?”
“Not our fault....the Intelligence Community never showed us how to read a calendar!”
