U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice will be honored Tuesday night with the 2013 Louis E. Martin Great American Award.
The annual award, presented by The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, is given to “an exemplar of change, progress and coalition-building across racial lines,” according to a press release.
Specifically, the organization is honoring Rice for ”her work in advancing U.S. interests, strengthening the worlds common security and prosperity, and promoting respect for human rights,” another press release states.
The evening gala and awards ceremony at which Vice President Joe Biden will speak comes a day before high-ranking state department officials testify at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the terrorist attack that took place at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last year. The witnesses, who Oversight chair Darrell Issa (R-Calf.) is calling “whistleblowers,” are expected to contradict parts of the Obama administration’s narrative about the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks.
Specifically, some of the remarks Rice made on the Sunday morning news shows a few days after the incident will be called into question. During her interview with FOX News Sunday, Rice stated the attacks were a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in Cairo as a consequence of the video” a statement that was quickly proven false.
While Rice admittedly was the Obama administration’s fall guy on Benghazi a situation that ultimately cost her a bid for Secretary of State the award still seems ill-considered. But then again, according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, the Benghazi attacks “happened a long time ago.” Perhaps The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies has forgotten about Rice’s role in skewing the narrative.
The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies had not responded to a request for comment at the time this article was published.
Holy bribes, batman, is someone trying to buy her silence? Or is this payoff for being a useful idiot?
Is this from the Onion?
There are rules for posting around here, and your title requires a “BARF ALERT” tag.
More proof that anything a liberal does is usually hollow and meaningless and politically motivated.
or the Keystone Cops.
Same guideline used to give Obama his Nobel?
It must be a panel that is deaf, dumb and blind.
To watch this millionaire shorty walking proudly down the halls of the infamous UN swinging her arms and hips is quite a sight.
Rivals even that hipster, Hitlery von Rottenham rolling down the halls of government wearing what appears to be trousers with two kids fighting to get out.
Democrat women are such bitches.
Unreal!! What’s next? Obama Ranked #1 by the PGA!?
The “Great American” award appears to carry the same gravitas as the “Nobel Peace and Nobel Literature” prizes.
And of course, if it came from the White House, one is also encumbered with the additional costs of disinfecting the thing.
She should be in jail. Along with Axelrod.
Outstanding achievment in the field of excellence
And John Edwards being named father of the year. :)
