Susan Rice said this Sunday she had no regrets about trotting out her flawed Benghazi talking points last year, touching off a predictable storm of controversy.
Certainly Rices talking points deserved more scrutiny than they got from reporters. There are simple questions that Rice could have been asked: If the Benghazi attack was a protest that went awry, why did it begin at night? Protests are daylight affairs, where broadcast cameramen can see their signs and banners. Attacks begin at night. And where were the signs and banners? Why did the crowd of nearly 100 arrive with rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns? If the protest was triggered by an Internet video, where is the evidence that any one in Libya saw that video? Much of Libya lacks 24-hour electricity, Internet access is scarce and costly when half the population earns less than $2 per day, and only a fraction of Libyans speak English (the language of the offensive video). Plus, there is not a single mention of the video on any social media in any language in Libya prior to the attack, a recent study shows. The only mentions in Libya occur after Rice appeared on the Washington Sunday talk shows. How does Rice explain that?
Beyond Benghazi, a bigger and more important question looms: As national security advisor, what has Rice done to reinvent Americas relationship with Africa? In other words, how is Rice doing her job, aside from Benghazi? On the available evidence, not very well.......

But, she is Afro-American and therefore should be an expert on here homeland.
Obama, Holder, Rice, the whole lot of 'e,.
We have sappers not only within the perimeter, they absolutely control the command bunker.
They are accomplishing what they have set out to do. I pray to God in Heaven that we can stop them...staring here in 2014, and then finishing the job in 2016 and getting the nation back on track.
It's going to be a tall order.
She’s not very smart. But very obedient.
To prominently place SOOOOO much stock in “Afrocentrism” and then be accused by a well-known and mostly MSM publication of knowing NOTHING about Africa....!
THAT HAS JUST **GOT** TO STING, RIGHT THERE...!
I’m sure this is racist.
She doubles down, just like obie. To attack her will renew charges that it a war on women. I hope she goes to jail, soon. o
Agree 100% with your analogy:
In his own book he described his brief and lucrative time at a Wall Street bank as being like “a REBEL OPERATIVE WORKING SECRETLY BEHIND ENEMY LINES”.
I am convinced he has always and to this very day sees himself that way.
Susan Rice is a sock puppet who is paid to lie not think.
Her homeland is the USA.
And no, these people are NOT dumb, they are Conniving, Evil, Vile people that are Determined to bring down America.....and they have SUCCEEDED beyond all their dreams as to how FAST they did it!!
Clueless about Africa? She’s clueless, period.
We have a regime that is dragging us to disaster
She is not clueless She is in league with the Devil imho
The 7th is that she is part of the Obama administration, which means they don’t care about anything, unless it is a way of ruining America.
She and hubby showed up on "60 Minutes," whining about being victims b/c they are interracial. Compliant 60 Minutes always gives lock-stepping Democrats a chance to show their party loyalty.
Why CBS does not require the Dem lock-steppers to wear brown shirts, I'll never know (cackle).
OBAMA / RICE ON MARTHA'S VINEYARD: "Susan, let's
make sure the cameras get this staged photo-op to pump your resume."
RICE: "60 Minutes is helping me pump my resume, too."
OBAMA HILLARY LOVE FEST ON 60 MINUTES
Obomba hustled Hillary onto 60 Minutes to gaze in
adoration, after her arrogant dismissal of the Benghazi
massacre before Congress.
Amen. We have to factor in that evil party loyalists will not cede power easily----once they've tasted power it will not be easy to dislodge 'em. The massive fraud machine is already in motion. The power-crazed Obomba minions are colluding as we type:
<><> Obama EO's all illegal's to be legalized voters
<><> opponents will need to overcome massive fraudulent ballot counts.
<><> Obama could even launch a false flag canceling the 2014 midterms.
<><>lock-stepping loyalists have already pressured the IRS to launch political war against Tea Partiers (more below).
<><> NSA has reams of blackmail ready to roll-out.
<><> Obomba orders the FCC to "regulate" the I-net preventing
truths to be posted---impairing Tea Partiers ability to
DEMS STOOP TO CONQUEUR--- Vulnerable Dems want IRS to step up
by Alexander Bolton, The Hill, 2/13/14
Senate Democrats facing tough elections this year want the IRS to play a more aggressive role in regulating outside groups expected to spend millions of dollars on their races. In the wake of the IRS targeting scandal, the Democrats are publicly prodding the agency instead of lobbying them directly.
Dems are also careful to say the IRS should treat conservative and liberal groups equally, but theyre concerned about an impending tidal wave of attack ads funded by GOP-allied organizations. Much of the funding for those groups is secret, in contrast to the donations lawmakers collect, which must be reported publicly.
One of the most powerful groups is Americans for Prosperity, funded by the billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch. It has already spent close to $30 million on ads attacking Democrats this election cycle.
If theyre claiming the tax relief, the tax benefit to be a nonprofit for social relief or social justice, then thats what they should be doing, said Sen. Mark Begich (D), who faces a competitive race in Alaska. If its to give them cover so they can do political activity, thats abusing the tax code. And either side."
Asked if the IRS should play a more active role policing political advocacy by groups that claim to be focused on social welfare, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) responded, Absolutely. Both on the left and the right, she said. As taxpayers, we should not be providing a write-off to groups to do political activity, and thats exactly what were doing.
Shaheen called the glut of political spending by self-described social welfare groups that qualify under section 501(c) (4) of the tax code outrageous. Shaheen is in a good position now but could find herself embroiled in a tight campaign if former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass) challenges her.
Sen. Mark Pryor (Ark.), the most vulnerable Democratic incumbent, said the IRS has jurisdiction over 501(c)(4) groups, as well as charities, which fall under section 5/01(c)(3) of the tax code and sometimes engage in quasi-political activity.
That whole 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4) [issue], those are IRS numbers. It is inherently an internal revenue matter, he said. There are two things you dont want in political money, in the fundraising world and expenditure world. You dont want secret money, and you dont want unlimited money, and thats what we have now. --SNIP--
MOMENTS TO REMEMBER AT THE VOTING BOOTH
<><> Seven US Senators ask the IRS to Investigate political opponents....
<><> Elijah Cummings led the Democrat pack in smearing Englebrecht....
<><> Obama said Tea Parties were a "threat to democracy."
Democrat Sens Mark Begich, Jeanne Shaheen and Mark Pryor went whining to the IRS to save their sorry ***es as 2014 approaches.
They are among the loyal Democrats who voted in lockstep to throw Americans off their health plans. The lock-stepping Democrat drumbeat --- "keep your plan" ---- rang throughout the land --- in the historic straight Dem party-line vote for Obamacare.
FACTS ON FILE As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act:
OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.
Repeated over and over ---- with the promise that every American would be saving $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
LOCK-STEPPING PARTY LOYALTY NOT SEEN SINCE 1930-40's ERA EUROPE
