Susan Rice Secretary Of State, John Kerry At Defense?
IBD EDITORIALS ^ | November 13, 2012

Posted on 11/13/2012 4:28:20 PM PST by raptor22

Leadership: Two of the most important national security positions may be soon held by a diplomat who helped perpetrate a Benghazi-gate lie and a senator who has voted against every major defense system in the last 25 years.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived in Australia on Tuesday before a summit about deepening defense links between Australia and the U.S. as our dwindling forces pivot to the Pacific Rim. Of course, Wednesday hearings on Benghazi have nothing to do with her getting as far from Washington, D.C., as possible.

She'll be conveniently unavailable to testify on the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi and has been deafeningly silent on why and how real-time emails and video plus a claim of responsibility by the al-Qaida-linked group Ansar al-Sharia led her to promote the big lie that it was all caused by an obscure Internet video.

Clinton will soon be our former secretary of state, having successfully kicked the Benghazi can far enough down the political road to get her boss, President Obama, re-elected and proving to be the loyal foot soldier as she prepares her own presidential run in 2016.

Her replacement is said to be U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, who went on five Sunday news shows on Sept. 16 to claim the Benghazi attack was a spontaneous action by a mob inflamed by the video "Innocence of Muslims."

John Kerry is a traitor, and that is not an emotional outburst.

An actual traitor who gave aid and comfort directly to the enemy, while in uniform.

GOP senators should put a hold on both of these nominations.
And Susan Rice should be put under oath regarding her comments
about the video.

They shall also skate through.

Harry Reid will get the rules on filibuster suspended (or changed) so only a simple majority is enough for confirmation.

The revolution of the ‘70’s is complete - the student revolutionaries are now in command of the planes and tanks and warships, and they speak to the world with all the full authority of the US government (for what THAT may be worth any more).

The peaceniks have won. Nixon, Ford (and even LBJ) must be turning in their graves now.

If Kerry is nominated for anything, including dog-catcher, he should be put under oath and asked about his Vietnam service, his enhanced biography, his faux wounds, his illegal contacts with our communist enemies in Paris, his participation in an anti-American group (VVAW) who had direct contacts with the communists in Paris and Hanoi, and about his key spokesman, Wade Sanders, who is in federal prison on child pornagraphy charges.

He did “leave a man behind” on the Bay Hap River.

He did flee the scene, claiming a non-existent battle (5000 meters of hostile small and large arms fire, ie. 3 miles down, 3 miles back up river, with no casualties, no bullet holes in his craft, no nothing).

He got at least one Purple Heart for a self-inflicted wound, the old grenade in the rice container routine

A second self inflicted wound occurred when he fired an M-79 grenade launcher and the round hit short and its flechettes richoted and hit him.

A third PH for the Bay Hap incident is questionable since he claimed his boat was hit by an underwater mine, but evidence shows only that it hit an underwater object, possibly a log, rock, etc. (Read the After Action Report for details).

Did Kerry lie to his superiors, including Adm. Hoffman, about what he claimed he did to earn the Purple Hearts?

We need details on how his first trip to Paris to meet with the communists occurred, was financed, arranged, with whom, and what happened in the meeting.

Who arranged and financed his second trip to Paris to meet with the VC and North Vietnamese at their legation? What did he say, offer to do, etc. and what did the communists say and want of him?

How about a reported third trip to Paris to meet with the communists? Did it happen?

We need to know what kind of deal he and Chris Dodd struck with the Sandinista Marxist dictatorship in 1984 to prevent a positive vote in the US Congress to give aid to the freedom-fighters. Right after the vote to NOT give aid to the “Contras”, Ortega struck a $200 million arms deal with Moscow.

Congress was so pissed at Oretga and Kerry/Dodd, that they reversed their vote on aid to the Contras and gave it to them, a key vote that helped force the Sandinistas to a truce and free elections, which they lost.

Lots of questions about the role that Kerry played in the 1994-95 meetings with Hanoi re establishing diplomatic relations. What did he and McCain sacrifice in the search for American military personnel who were reported and known to be alive in NVA hands during the war? This was a virtual abandonment of any live POWS or recovering the remains of those who were murdered in captivity (Dodge, Hrdlicka, Dunn (Red Chinese POWS)).

Lots of questions for this traitor.

We sank his ass in 2004 (”Unfit for Command”). Time to permanently sink his political career by exposing him as the liar and traitor that he is.

Oh, I forgot. It depends on GOP Senators. Most are losers even if they are in office. Hopefully there are a few with honor and guts who will grill Kerry like a hotdog at a BBQ.

As for Susan Rice, the US’s chief liar at the UN, cook her till she’s parboiled.

SUSAN RICE has been a UN gal from way back. U.S. sovereignty and Constitution threatens her big shot position in the fast approaching world government. WORLD GOVERNMENT is the name of their game - Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and the list goes on. I think some who have cooperated with it have just been gullible; not understanding that it’s too much temptation for a Herr Hitler II. The power, the power . . . over so many of us peasants who just don’t understand things like they do . .

LOL; if only it was not sooooo close to the ugly truth of the matter. . .

Can only hope their will be plenty of reruns of Rice - telling an 'Obamatale'; and Kerry; insulting all who serve in our Military; which only proves; 'whose' IQ is in question.

What a freaking 'bobble head'.

And speaking of SC; wonder if Hillary still has 'dreams' of wearing the 'robe'.

Secretary of Defense, John Kerry. Qualifications: assistant to Jane Fonda. Has a nice ring to it.

When one considers this other cabinet and President’s advisory positions, all that can be said is, it’s a good thing that Obama isn’t in charge of hiring for any of our big companies.

I predict that inside of two years Cuba is going to declare war on the United States and Odinga will surrender to “save us from a protracted war that we cannot win.”

Hopefully at her confirmation hearing (if there is a confirmation hearing), one of the Republicans will ask who directed her to go on the Sunday morning shows and tell the "offensive video" story.

At least the POS is showing his MA Elitist attitude.
He also cited instances where he ‘observed’ US troops in VN engaged in murder and rape - A charge -which under UCMJ should have had him recalled to duty and answer why he did NOTHING about it. Guess if he was ‘out’ on a GD or BCD he was no longer qualified to be “An Officer and a Gentleman (at least in the eyes of the Congress of the US).

What a specimen to put in charge of the well being and welfare of our ‘fighting men and rest of the Military complex’.

Putting him in ‘that’ slot is tantamount to Robert MacNamaras appointment.....another Liberal slap in the face of Americans.

FRiend, great graphic.

It is way past time that Kerry and Fonda be forever linked to the 3.5 million people who were killed in Cambodia, South Vietnam and Laos in the 1970s after the Left in this country failed to support South Vietnam when they were invaded by North Vietnam in 1975.

They are both traitors to America.

And I want to see Kerry’s full SF-180.

Lying SOB.

Nah -- Reichsleiter, commandant of Obama's new armed civil-order corps (army group, actually), and architect and overseer of the reeducation-camp system.

What camp system, you say?

Leadership: Two of the most important national security positions may be soon held by a diplomat who helped perpetrate a Benghazi-gate lie and a senator who has voted against every major defense system in the last 25 years.

Several people commented, the day after the election, that given the narrowness of the victory margin and the GOP's retaining the House in a host of elections nationwide, Obama and his crew ought not overinterpret their win as a "mandate".

And yet appointing a broadpuke of VVAW tools, UN "one-world" mouthpieces, and other far-left flotsam and jetsam obviously for their leanings rather than their resumes (these people wouldn't even be B-listers in any group put together by, say, Joe Biden, Dianne Feinstein, or Walter Mondale), overplaying their hand is apparently exactly what the Chicago Boys are doing.

Of course, if you adjust your perspective a little and see them as a criminal political conspiracy and revolutionaries on the make, then they would of course treat the election as simply another enabling moment, and a mere "mandate" from the electorate, even if they had one, as something to be despised in favor of sterner credentials.
