Skip to comments.Susan Rice Has an Interesting Take on Why Fox Turned Her Into a 'Villain' After Benghazi
Posted on 10/23/2019 7:49:06 AM PDT by Kaslin
Former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) often sparred in the wake of the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. Graham repeatedly blasted the Obama administration's inaction and misleading narrative about the attack.
Rice recalled all the tension during an interview on the "Pod Save the World" podcast with former Obama adviser Tommy Vietor this week, when the two compared Sen. Graham to excrement and accused him of "lying" and "raising money off the death of four Americans."
Hes been a piece of s**t, Rice chimed in. I said it! I said it, dammit. Finally. Hes a piece of s**t."
Rice's and Vietor's stark assessment of Graham is one thing, but I was more interested in Rices perspective of the Benghazi scandal that made her one of the most infamous figures in politics. Back in 2012, Rice spoke for the Obama administration on several different news shows claiming that the terror attack on the U.S. consulate was the result of a spontaneous YouTube video. In reality, it was a premeditated attack. Fox News was one of several networks to expose Rice's misleading take. Yet she claims that the news outlet was just trying to peg her as a villain.
"It knows how to energize and rile up its viewers," Rice said of Fox. "Making them angry is how they get ratings. And the way to make them angry is to create villains that they can target and vilify. And you always need fresh villains."
Rice had given the network the wherewithal to be villainized, she mused.
Because I had given them five different sets of video on these shows," she said. "And they could loop them, and they could turn me into a new villain."
Now on Fox, many years later, they just need to say my name and its like people start twitching its like an automatic trigger point.
Rice has a new memoir out in which she claims she was just repeating the talking points provided to her by the CIA.
official Obama liar to the world and getting rewarded for it.
You said it.
Because she was in fact the villain as the face of the Clinton/Obama machines PR lie?
WTF?? No “RACE CARD”?
Actually Susan one of the real POS in this is case is you
Judicial Watch: New Benghazi Documents confirm...coverup (trunc)
She went on FIVE Sunday shows and lied.
She knew she was lying.
The White House knew she was lying.
Obama knew she was lying.
Hillary knew she was lying.
Jeez Even Susan Rice is throwing Obamas CIA under the bus.
Ja, she vas just followink orderz.
Rice was obviously being used to protect the Hildabeast. She knew the propaganda she was spreading was a lie — she has admitted that her own mother warned her that it would ruin her career. The CIA might have created the kockamamie story as a prop, but other intel groups such as the DIA had the facts straight. NSC staff ignored facts and produced a false narrative. The program lying Susan was on seemed to be a reunion of Obama NSC villains.
They’re all liars but Rice seems to have a special enthusiasm for lying.
The CIA-FBI are already scared.
Rice is now joining the gang.
Meanwhile the GOP-e goes back to sleep dreaming of $$$ from the Chamber of Commerce.
Man, that woman has a problem with the truth, coupled with an overwhelming desire to bring down America, the hub of Western European Christian man. Obama purposeful built a team of anti British christian colonists.
All of them totally against the heritage that gave the world achievement and progress.
She’s just another marxist muslim coalition member seeking “death to America”
This is not Trump Derangement Syndrome. This is simple derangement.
She forgot. Next time she’s on the air, she’ll mention Lindsey Graham’s racism, and Fox’s, and Trump’s, And Rush’s...and Hannity’s...
What, no racism?
Hey Suze - Senator Graham isn’t the lying POS here.
Since you, by order of Obama & Clinton, repeated the lie provided to you by the Obama administration’s CIA’s “talking points,” I’m pretty makes you the vile liar here.
Before you continue spewing this lying garbage, remember that we now know that everybody involved knew it was a lie at the time you all were spewing it.
Two frickin' liars ---- the phony act they put on was Academy-worthy.
Hillary knew her wanton political ambitions were going up in flames. She had to think up an excuse----fast.
Bill told her to blame it on Republicans.
