Some readers have suggested we should boost the Pinocchio rating for Rice’s comments. Still, it is clear Rice was simply mouthing the words given to her. The bigger mystery now is who was involved in writing — and rewriting — the talking points.
(Excerpt) Read more at hotair.com ...
I predict they’ll say Rice re-wrote them herself, just went rogue to attempt to impress and curry favor with Obama.
Then, under the bus, and into a left-wing think tank where she’ll be well taken care of.
Just what did hillary and Obama have to do with them.??
Who hired Craig Livingstone?
Michael Ramirez argues that it matters in another way that the cover-up of Benghazi is at least as bad as that of Watergate, and perhaps worse, since no one died in Watergate and we didnt lose a consulate to terrorists:
Be sure and see his toon.....brings back memories of ....NIXON!!
I don’t know who wrote it, but I would bet the farm on who was behind it’s writing.
Hint: He travels with Reggie Love instead of the Mooch.
Did Rice ever say who gave her the info to read, other than her saying it was the best info she had at the time?
Valerie Jarrett is the Resident’s prima donna on EVERYTHING.
Couldn’t be Rice. She just won an award for being all awesome and stuff.
We can guess where it came from.. s^%$ rolls downhill, right?
It looks like Rice was nothing but an “Obama puppet” despite claims by others that she was a brilliant, experienced woman re foreign affairs.
I thought that I read recently that she was going to either a “think tank” or university.
I my opinion, she is not as smart as people think because she has failed to perform honestly which it came to “crunch time” (Benghazi).
And if she knew that what she was saying at the UN was either false, then she’s a willing Obama liar. If she didn’t question the stupidity of the “video” claim after a week of the Consulate attack and available public knowledge about it, then she is just stupid and incompetent (very highly prized qualifications for Democrats in any major position).
In summary, Rice is any or all of the following:
* a mindless dupe
* a willing dupe
* a willing disinformation Obama operative
* totally dishonest
SHe is not qualified to represent the US anywhere, any time.
10:38-39 p.m., 9/11/12. @StateDept tweets: " #SecClinton: I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. http://state.gov #Libya" and "#SecClinton: We have confirmed one @StateDept officer was killed in #Libya. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss." Hillary Clinton issues a statement, saying, "I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack." She adds: "Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind."
That was when Hillary herself took over the Cairo embassy Twitter account and personally posted. (anyone who thinks she wasn't directing the earlier Tweets is smoking something) That was at 10:38 PM Eastern Time. That would have been 4:38 AM Sept. 13th in Benghazi. About the time Woods and Doherty were making their last stand.
Odd that no one seems to know WHERE she was born.
Heck, I musta missed that. Now I feel like a racist for even thinking it.
I don’t think they care who gets blamed. They know the MSM won’t report anything, Congress will be too spineless to do anything, and this will all go away after several GOP members grandstand for a little while.
All the blame will be dumped on Hillary, and Obastard will be absolved. This is a case of “Who’s ox does the media want to gore?” They want to protect both of the liars, but push will come to shove, and Obastard will be the one they protect.
Hillary Clinton rewrote the talking points.
BTW, does any one else remember a curious report that came out two weeks after Benghazi and after the lies were obvious, that Hillary Clinton would be absolved of all responsibility if the truth were known. That curious report was attributed to Bill Clinton. It was curious at the time because all of the focus was on Obama and his meeting with Panetta. I think the Clintons thought the cat would be let out of the bag and were trying to set up Obama for the fall. But the fall never happened. The MSM censored the story in order to protect Obama, an extreme that the Clintons did not anticipate, but perhaps should have.

Nuland has had a long career in the Foreign Service and has worked for both Democratic and Republican administrations. During the Bill Clinton administration, Nuland was chief of staff to Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott before moving on to serve as deputy director for former Soviet Union affairs.
During the George W. Bush administration, she served as the principal deputy foreign policy adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney and then as U.S. ambassador to NATO. During the Barack Obama administration, she was special envoy for Conventional Armed Forces in Europe before assuming her current position as State Department spokesperson in summer 2011.
* a mindless dupe
* a willing dupe
* a willing disinformation Obama operative
* totally dishonest
Those very attributes form an orthogonal set of basis vectors in corruption space.
Rice got her information from her BOSS....the liar Hilda Clinton. Anyone got the list of Hilda lies?
From when she was 27 years old:
Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedys chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifmans 17-year career.
Because she was a liar, Zeifman said in an interview last week. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.
Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn’t cover the market back then.)
Whoppers She Won’t Confess To
She didn’t know about the FALN pardons.
She didn’t know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
She didn’t know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
She didn’t know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
She opposed NAFTA at the time.
She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
She played a role in the ‘90s economic recovery.
The billing records showed up on their own.
She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
She was always a Yankees fan.
She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
In plain English these words describe a “Democrat”.
Tomorrow will continue wall-to-wall coverage of the recued women and their five kids.
One option might be to revisit Susan Rice with the promise of prosecution unless she agrees to testify fully with immunity. That might be useful in isolating Hillary as the culprit. Not going to get Obama with anything but censure, but Hillary can be prosecuted. It’d be the second-best outcome.
Hillary also claimed to have wanted to join the Marines back in the late 1960s, and her political views “evolved” when told by the recruiter the Marines had met their quota of women.
Would that be Podesta's Center for American Progress, aka, the Retired Obama Henchmen's Home (ROHH)?
The same person who rewrote the talking points.
Why was UN ambassador even in the conversation? Hmmmm?
Everything that takes place in matters like this comes RIGHT FROM THE TOP. Can you imagine a lower level government type making decisions on matters like FAST and FURIOUS or BENGHAZI. It would never happen. They would be to afraid of losing their job. The FOREIGINER’S REGIME has lost all credibility with the american people. It’s time for him to step down. But like the AGW scam, the socialist left will keep the lie going on his behalf.
Will The Clapper be thrown under the bus?
It was Benjamin Rhodes, son of Davis Rhodes, owner of CBS.
Rhodes is Deputy National Security Advisor, and he re-wrote them.
Alas, most service stations now have self-serve pumps.
Besides that, she is the type who would forget to put the cap back on the fuel inlet tube.
Benjamin's brother David Rhodes IS PRESIDENT OF CBS.
No conflict there huh?
“They want to protect both of the liars, but push will come to shove, and Obastard will be the one they protect.”
Race trumps gender in the liberal pecking order.
