Rice: We didn't intend to mislead on Benghazi
Politico ^ | Nov. 27, 2012 | BYRON TAU

Under fire from congressional critics, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice stressed in a Tuesday statement that she did not intend to mislead the public about the September 11th attacks on the Benghazi consulate.

"Neither I nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in this process, and the administration updated Congress and the American people as our assessments evolved," Rice said.

Rice has emerged as a high-profile administration for congressional critics who claim that the Obama administration tried to cover up a terrorist link to the attacks.

Rice and acting CIA director Michael Morell met Tuesday with Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) to discuss her public statements in the aftermath of the assault that killed four U.S. State Department personnel in September.

Let's see, the Obama Admin removed any reference to solid intel that terrorists and specifically an al-Qaeda-allied group was involved.

While inserting a false narrative about a protest that was not supported by real-time video intel that the Admin had access to.

But there was no intent to mislead.

The whoppers keep getting bigger and bigger.

In a sane country both she and her boss would be out of a job and known by all as “liars.”

It doesn’t help that you are a Communist Muslim-lover, either, Susan. Just the sort of person that Obama would appoint to the UN. That’s bad enough.

You would think the trash that occupy this administration would stop at the first lie and make it official.

They know that most people with a brain know they are lying, so why continue? Nobody will do anything about it anyway.

“as our assessments evolved” - Interesting.
Exactly who’s assessments?
Evolved? Huh - changed? to who’s benefit?

“We intentionally made statements that were demonstrably untrue, be we didn’t intend to mislead you.”

Sounds like “depends on what your definition of is is” redux.

In a sane country both she and her boss would be out of a job and known by all as “liars.” convicted felons. And one would be on death row.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

What a joke....It was 9-11 and Muzzies love anniversaries. They picked a KNOWN site with no security.

They blamed the video FOR WEEKS. It was deliberate and intended to deceive.
