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

Posted on 11/27/2012 10:32:24 AM PST by Free ThinkerNY

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.

Gee Rice said she did not intend to mislead the public about the September 11th attacks on the Benghazi consulate just read White House talking points she knew to be false. That out does Clinton’s famous what is the meaning of “is”.

So if it wasn’t intentional, then it must have been incompetence.

“I didn’t intend to mislead”

There’s a pile of evidence that says you did, Ms. Rice. The evidence says that you intended to mislead and you knew you weren’t telling the truth. Did you think you could get away with it?

We hear that you are an exceptionally savvy person. You’d have to be very dumb to believe “I didn’t intend to mislead”, or “I gave you the best available intelligence”. I don’t think you’re dumb. You must have thought it “smart” to lie. We’ve got people digging hard to find out why you chose to lie.

“That’s not my dog!
OK, it’s my dog, but he doesn’t bite.
All right, he bites but he didn’t bite you.
Bite marks ... big deal. You have witnesses?
So what.”

“How many times do I have to explain this to you?”

I am sick of the children and the excuses and lies and stalling just like kids do when they don’t want to face up to the truth, runaway to Australia. What’s next, Bathhouse barry’s going to have a tummy ache and can’t talk to the press?

It’s time to spank them, We need a protest on Washington.

the nobama (aka: pinnochio) regime is replete with liars who have neither integrity nor conscience. These loser grifters should all be incarcerated in a Federal Supermax for the rest of their worthless subhuman lives.

Ms Rice, you may say that you never intended to mislead the American public but you cannot say that no one in the administration intended to mislead. You don’t know, for sure, about any of them.
Some of us are not dumb as rocks.....only about 50.3%.

Rice: We didn’t intend to mislead on Benghazi
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Oh yes they did intent to mislead.

They wanted to define a whole class of Americans who are unaccepting of Islam and sharia law as”politically incorrect.” They arrested a Coptic Christian from Egypt who helped make a film exposing the genocide that Islamists in Egypt have committed against Coptic Christians, the film that allegedly caused a riot in Benghazi.

The ruse failed and Obama was caught with his pants down, but the question we are all asking is this “ Why did POSHITUS have his pants down?” Simple really.
