Posted on 11/22/2012 4:35:09 PM PST by RoosterRedux
Ambassador Susan Rice has finally explained, in her opinion, why she misled the country about what happened during the September 11 terror attack against Americans in Benghazi, Libya. According to Rice, all the blame should be given to the intelligence community for her misleading comments made five days after the attack, since she was just repeating what they had told her.
A reporter asked, the American ambassador to the United Nations, "Ambassador Rice, would you explain your view of the controversy concerning your comments about Benghazi? And haveis Senator McCain fair in what he has said?"
"As a senior US diplomat, I agreed to a White House request to appear on the Sunday shows to talk about the full range of national security issues of the day, which at that time were primarily and particularly the protests that were enveloping and threatening many diplomatic facilitiesAmerican diplomatic facilitiesaround the world and Irans nuclear program. The attack on Benghazion our facilities in Benghaziwas obviously a significant piece of this," Rice explains.

Obama and his affirmative action princes and princesses will not be well served by history.
The truth will come out...even about Chrissy "the Sissy" Matthews (though he will only be an obscure footnote at best)
Susan Rice works for Obama.
Half-truths, misdirection and smokescreens are status quo.
This was an organized campaign to stall and misdirect while the 2012 election went on.
There is no other answer but this.
Even the Libya president knew - and we’re to believe he wasn’t in communication with the WH? Puhleeze.
Oh, the irony.
whoever handed her the paper is guiltiest
her repeating it may have been a koolaid moment, but her first repititions of the lie she does not deserve much blame
for her to keep repeating anything in defense of the lie, however, is worse than koolaid, it is complete complicity in the crime, and the arrest of an innocent man
This is the season for the audio transcription of obozo’s and his administration’s chronic lying — it is when adults talk on the Charlie Brown specials.
Eventually the intel community is going to get tired of being blamed for Hussein’s treachery and incompetence..
The bottom line is this:
Either Obama will bring the Country down...or the Country will bring Obama down.
There is no other option.
Choose freedom (and war) or serfdom (and surrender).
Go ahead on, chica, and pick a fight with the CIA, NSA, etc. Go for it, I dare ya.
Will definitely be a perfect representative of zero as SOS when Hillary resigns.>
She's got the "blame it om someone else" game down pat.
Rice, by playing to the stereotype, really isn't doing anyone any good. She's also proving she's unable to rise above her origins.
Do I have to be the first one to say it?
That brings up another question:
If she was basing her comments on data she got from the Intel Community, which Intel organization informed her that a movie was the cause of the riots/attacks?
Well, the US “intelligence” “community” has certainly been caught with it pants down.
Also, we are to believe that she received NO updates from 11 September 2012 to the time that she made her first post-attack chat show appearance. Sure. And if I told you that rabid badgers make good pets, would you believe me?
Clapper (DNI) has taken the fall for that.
Yep, they’ve got their story figured out now, and this is it. Spread the official words via JournoList and have the echo chamber repeat them...
We’ll get suckered again because we never fight this kind of crap like they do. “Bush Lied, People Died” if anyone needs a reminder....
...if the House of Representatives doesn't do something about it, they are also without honor.
...ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES...do they not, Mr. Boehner?
So, we are to believe that Clapper took it upon himself to alter the material with no direction from anyone. Ladies and gents, the administration finds new ways to insult our intelligence on a daily basis. Mendacious misbegotten mountebanks.
In a just world the media would be hounding the admin over the rape and sodomizing of a US diplomat caused at the very least incompetence or at the worst, treachery..
Harden yourselves, harden your minds and bodies.
This is one we must win!
Obama is the guilty party...and no one else.
And we are being asked believe that Clapper made the changes completely on his own with nary a peep from anyone. Next, someone shall try to sell to us the Brooklyn Bridge.
See my tagline.
Next someone will tell to board the train to the American Dachau...and get in line to enter the ovens.
Indeed. The DNI reports to the President. I do not believe for one minute that the DNI took it upon himself to alter the report; a report that, in one form or another, likely made its way to the desk of the President. Everyone knew the attack was an Al Qaeda attack and made a conscious decision to lie about it.
Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
That’s funny. My daughter says they found out from her. ;~P
That it was a video no one had ever heard of, I mean.
Yes, thank you, sweet and cherished friend.
I trust your is the same?
We have not yet eaten! LOL.
I was slow to start cooking today!!!
Ok, lets say i believe her. An easily duped Sec of State, that sounds like a solid idea!
Al Queda thrived.
So the intelligence community lied to her? RIIIIIIGGHHTTT....
Waiting for the media to apologize to George Bush in 5,4,3,2,1........
Let's give Rice the benefit of the doubt. Let's say she wasn't privy to the CIA report on Benghazi. Let's say that she was a good soldier reading a script that she received from "someone" and that she believed the script to be accurate.
Well then - Congress should be able to get to the bottom of this matter with just a few questions.
Question #1: Who gave Rice the script?
Question #2: Who expunged "terrorist attack" from the script AND who directed that person to do it?
Question #3: Who is responsible for Rice's "video" narrative and on who's authority was that narrative determined to be the cause of the attack?
Benghazi will likely be used as a back room "bargaining chip" during fiscal cliff negotiations. Don't be surprised if our Congress chooses to not pursue this serious matter.
Keep praying for America!
Susan Rice: “Look guys... I can only relay the lies that I’ve been told. I’m not about to make something up or second guess the boss.”
What a doofus!
And the left wing media buy it. The same media that touted “Bush lied, people died” after he said he was simply going with what intelligence reports said about WMDs.
Many keep saying,”Don’t mess with the intel community, CIA, etc. They have long memories, they’ll pay you back, blah, blah, blah” Well, Obama has been walking over them for over 2 months with impunity and they haven’t done jack squat. If they have tried, Obama is teflon man and nothing will happen to him or Hillary regarding Benghazi. I hope I’m wrong.
I second that sentiment.

“Either Obama will bring the Country down...or the Country will bring Obama down.”
There was a time when I would say the latter. I’m afraid we are now looking at the former.
In the debate obama claimed he called it a terrorist attack the very next day in the Rose Garden. So she’s admitting she didn’t believe The One? Wow.
Anyway, intel better be careful how they respond to her accusations because she now has her “if you criticize me you’re a racist” shield.
“”I agreed to a White House request to appear on the Sunday shows to talk about the full range of national security issues of the day, “”
Is there a transcript or video of her appearance on five different shows? I didn’t watch anything except FOX but I don’t recall her talking about the “full range” of national security issues of the day!!! What would the others have been besides Benghazi?
Well, “Clapper’s office” did, anyway.
