Rice acknowledges some of her Benghazi info was incorrect but has no regrets
FoxNews.com ^ | Published February 23, 2014

Posted on 02/23/2014 9:37:42 AM PST by BenLurkin

“That information turned out, in some respects, not to be 100 percent correct," Rice said. "But the notion that somehow I or anybody else in the administration misled the American people is patently false. And I think that that's been amply demonstrated."

She was, at the time, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a top candidate to become secretary of state.

However, Rice withdrew herself from consideration in the wake of the attacks on the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya, after the firestorm of criticism she received for her response.

Rice said Sunday she didn’t know whether her responses killed her chances of getting the top U.S. diplomatic post.

“I don’t know,” she said. “What I do know is that I [now] have a great job.”

Surprised Ms Rice didn’t say the unrest in the Ukraine was the result of a hateful YouTube video.

It has? LOL. It was repeated multiple times it was due to a video and a spontaneous demonstration - all of which was known to be completely false and yet continued to be the explanation repeatedly after it was known to be the case.

‘no regrets’.

Too bad the families of those who died due to Fearless Leader’s incompetence&indifference can’t say the same thing.

Well, she does get that right - zero percent isn't 100 percent.

She knows the MSM is largely composed of Democrat shills who will pretend to believe that crap — and then go to work repeating it over and over again to the LIVs.

An honest person would have resigned after being used by her boss to lie to the country and the rest of the world on such an important incident. Instead she got promoted. Nufsed!

One of the few benefits of being a cretin is that she cannot comprehend the concept of a regret.

Isn’t that Coptic Christian still in prison for making the innocuous video that Rice, Hillary, and all lied about?

Of course, that’s because the film maker was unfavorable to Islam, the only protected religion in this country.

".....all I know is now I have a great job".

Obama cut out a made-up job for her to keep her mouth shut forever.

And 'all I know' is that she'll retire a millionaire (if she isn't one already)....with all the retirement benefits bestowed upon those serving at the right-hand of God.

We’re coming up on 18 months since four Americans were murdered at Benghazi. What has been done? Why did Hillary and Obama overthrow the government of Libya? Have you heard them explain that one? Where is Libya’s gold? Where are the missing anti-aircraft missiles? Are we paying blackmail to our enemies because of this? Where is the court martial for the Commander of the US military unit in Libya that “ lost” armored vehicles, weapons and night vision equipment? Where are the people from the CIA building in Benghazi? Why can’t they be interviewed? Why is the American press silent on all this? The American citizens have a right to know. If these Democrats provided weapons to our enemies, then the American citizens should know. If these Democrats are being blackmailed by our enemies, then the American citizens should know.

If Susan Rice were on trial for perjury and she conceded that, yes, her questionable statements were ‘’not 100 percent correct’’ — in other words, they were lies — she would be declaring her guilt, and every fair and reasonable juror would convict her.

So why should it not be considered equally criminal in the court of public opinion that she lied to 3-plus million ‘’Meet the Press’’ viewers following the Benghazi debacle and is now conceding that she did in fact lie to them?

How can any fair and reasonable person continue to respect Susan Rice or believe anything she — or her enabler, the president — says?

When civilians (or Scooter Libby) does this it’s called “lying to Congress with intent to deceive”.
