Susan Rice to meet with McCain on Benghazi
cbsnews.com ^ | Nov. 26, 2012 | Brian Montopoli

Posted on 11/26/2012 4:36:02 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice will meet with senators on Capitol Hill Tuesday to answer questions about the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Libya. CBS News has learned her appearance will include a morning meeting with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who has been among her biggest critics since her initial remarks on the attack.

Rice has come under fire from Republicans for her initial account of the attack five days after it took place, when she suggested that there was no evidence the incident was an act of terrorism. On CBS News' "Face the Nation," in one example, she said the "assessment at present" was that "based on the best information we have to date...it began spontaneously in Benhgazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo, where of course as you know there was a violent protest outside our embassy sparked by this hateful video." She added that "extremist elements" then joined the effort.

The White House later said the assault was a preplanned terror attack, and some Republicans have suggested that they would block Rice's possible nomination to become Secretary of State for her role in what some say was a cover-up by the administration. Rice and her allies said she was merely repeating talking points given to her by the CIA and approved by the wider intelligence community. She said she "made clear that the information was preliminary, and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers."

According to “Bronco” she had nothing to do with it. I know when I have to explain the “Incompetence” of my superiors, I had “nothing to do with it”.

McCain is already backtracking.

Look for new found “understanding” and a rubber stamp to come.

Today's Republican Party: The house built on sand.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
- Matthew 7:24-27

McCain will surrender, same as always.

He will crawl out with his tail between his legs, mumble about being satisfied with her response, and that will be that.

This is a dog and pony show. She would not be meeting with him if the fix was not already in place.

Yea. The fix is in. McLame will come out of their little meeting stammering, stuttering and drooling like a complete idiot. Then he’ll tell everyone how she was set up, how she is really a very good choice. And, oh, by the way, gives great, ah, um, er, testimony on why she did what she did.

It seems like every conservative voice has gone home since the election. The talk shows play Christmas bumper music, or reruns, and the repub establishment is back to their old tricks on the hill. Why isn’t Sarah out there with a bullhorn, where’s Newt? The tent just folded up leaving conservatives left in the cold. This stupid game of pretending we are represented in DC is getting real old.

No sign of McConnell.
And nothing indicating that the GOP will raise hell or even fight. All the Dims need is a majority vote, but they want the Republicans to jump through their hoops first and then sign on, which they will.
Disgusting wimps.

Seems that way on every thing. No one ever charged with a crime.

No accountability, money never accounted for, no budget. No transparency in foreign affairs, spending, embassy murders, Funding and empowering Egypt Muslim Brotherhood. UN globalist agenda moves forward. Corrupt DOJ lies to congress...still oversees justice

Rice is a Clintonite, comes from the Brookings institute that has been advising Hillary on foreign policy. Her father worked for the Federal Reserve.

Will mcCain ask her boss to come testify for her, since he says her asinine lies were his fault and any complaints should be addressed directly to him? Seems he’s left the door wide open for an “invitation” to come testify for his nominee, er, lackey or whatever. Will McCain rise to the occasion?

Okay, I understand that. Just wondering why you thing McCain would do that NOW...he has been soooo accomodating for years.

I tend to think McCain is preparing to cave.

I realize this is a rhetorical question...but really, why the heck is McCain on all the dang time? Why is the guy who lost to Obama in 2008 the voice of the R party? Not that I want Willard to be the voice. But why in the heck doesn’t someone w/ some actual ‘heft’ step up and be a leader?

Gad...it’s going to be a very long 4 more years.

There are some who were with him in the Hanoi Hilton who can’t stand him. In his nomination speech he said “They broke me.” Did he think obama had something on him? Is that why he said obama wouldn’t be bad for America?

Voting for him is the only vote I’ve ever cast that I regret.

“I tend to think McCain is preparing to cave.”

We’ll find out soon. It would be treachery on his part.

If the GOP doesn’t hold firm on “immigration”—demand & then verify that the border is secured, before anything is done—then they go the way of the Whigs.

Pardon my skepticism, but just because I’m paranoid is no proof that they’re not really out to get me!

I predict that they’ll come out of this meeting with NO answers for us rubes out here in flyover country; but claiming that all their questions were answered and all is well.

I would be thrilled to learn that I’m wrong about that, but I don’t think I am. I think these congressmen and senators are so lazy and disinterested that they’ll make a little ruckus, a la John McLame, to make us think they give a d&mn about it, and later, as in this case, accept any line of BS the regime feeds them, just so they can roll over and go back to sleep.

I consider these so-called legislators to be part of the 47% who are on the public dole, and don’t want to make any waves or do anything that might jeopardize that monthly check or their fat lifetime pension!

McCain should not back peddle on this. Newt has been out on the cable shows before the election, hammering Susan Rice and telling these guys to block her. They should listen to Newt on this. Rice is covering for Obama. It was very clever in how the media got the heat away from Hillary as well.

Yeah, agree. The only thing I have ever heard say that I agree with is “elections have consequences”. This dance is a preview to what’s coming with the next couple of supremes nominations. Republicans will make a bunch of noise up front and then cave....
