Skip to comments.Rice helping Obama juggle foreign policy crises
Posted on 05/31/2014 9:15:22 AM PDT by mgist
Once seemingly destined to become secretary of state, Rice now holds a lower profile job at the White House, juggling one global crises after another for Obama and trying to insure that his broad list of foreign policy priorities doesnt fall by the wayside in the widening storm of problems overseas.
As President Barack Obama's national security adviser, she commands a suite of offices steps from the Oval Office and has more daily access to him than does Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry travels the world and gets the headlines. Rice quietly orchestrates the foreign policy issues put on Obama's desk. These days, Rice has been keeping a list of issues at risk of being ignored: a trade agreement with Asia-Pacific nations, development projects in Africa, protecting gay rights overseas.
Rice said in an interview. "We are trying to put points on the board."I don't have the luxury of saying, I'm going to do these three things and I'm going to put most of my eggs in these baskets," Rice said, adding that when it comes to the foreign policy decision-making process, "I've got to run the whole show." ___ For many, Rice remains best known for her role in the controversy surrounding the deadly 2012 attack on Americans in Benghazi, Libya. Days after the assault, she was dispatched to five Sunday talk shows to make the case that the onslaught on a U.S. compound was spontaneous and spurred by anger over an anti-Islam video a CIA-crafted talking point that turned out to be wrong. Rice quickly became the prime target for Republicans who accused the Obama administration of covering up the truth about the attack in order to protect the president's re-election prospects.

So far it only costs a nation's future.
Incompetent helping an incompetent.
The CIA never said it was caused by a 'video'.
And the lies just keep on comin'.
Obama was “Hired” to repeat what he was told to repeat, read what he was told to read and behave like he was told to behave. In return he would live like a king, get a few of his choom induced dreams realized and have a big blue airplane, a black limo and a spiffy helicopter to ride around in. Jarrett, Axelrod, Soros and even Moochelle have more say so in the 1/2 White House than he.
I literally laughed out loud when I read that. It's like a parody of a summation of what's important right now.
It's like stupid teenagers are running the country.
Asked about what qualifies her to formulate foreign policy strategies she said: “Danged if I know.”

a very unethical dishonest person.
What would you do if your boss sent you out to lie to the world about a national security incident so he could cover up his responsibility for the murders of four americans? Resign, go public?
She took a promotion from the same guy.
Every one going into llitics needs and injection of shame serum
Trying to rewrite history, one lie at a time. Unless one lie at a time isn't fast enough.
I don’t know who is doing what behind the scenes, but the result is sure Screwed Up!!!!!!!! BIGTIME!
“points on the board”; “eggs in one basket”; “run the whole show.”
These children talk a good game.
A cia crafted talking point?
That’s not what the cia says.
Yea I’m pretty sure that was,in retaliation for this:
Outed CIA agent Valerie Plame calls leak of Kabul operative ‘colossally stupid’
The former agent, who was outed during the George W. Bush administration, said her situation differed from the recent naming of the CIA station chief in Kabul. ‘What an error of huge proportions with tremendous consequences,’ she said during an interview on CNN.

They are teenage little girls, as far as I’m concerned. (I’m a lady so I can say that.)
