Ambassador Susan Rice: U.S. Not ‘Impotent’ in Muslim World’

Ambassador Susan Rice: U.S. Not ‘Impotent’ in Muslim World’

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told me this morning on “This Week” that the United States is not “impotent” in the face of violent protests sweeping the Muslim world being aimed at American interests.

“We’re not impotent,were not even less popular to challenge that assessment” said Rice. ” What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi and many other parts of the region was a result, a direct result, of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the U.S. government had nothing to do with, which we have made clear is reprehensible and disgusting.”

President Obama has been very public since the start of his presidential term that he intended to heal relations with the Middle East that were damaged during the Bush administration.

“a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated”

Oh really? From what I have been reading and hearing, the video has been seen by practically no one. More lies....

Not impotent? No, just weak, cowardly, and naive. We sure would not want to hurt any of Obama’s Muslim buddies so we do not give our Marines any ammo to defend our people so the Muslims can kill them —— yes, this administration is a real force to be reckoned with.

Look out Muslim radicals — Obama is coming !!!!

LOL! She’s another Obama regime fool. She obviously is clueless about what is going on over there. All she needs to do is turn on the news to find out. Geeesh Susie. It isn’t rocket science.

I see the issue from a different perspective.

This acceleration is all obama’s doing.

Why doesn’t someone just say he plays for the other side?

Or better yet, he already knows exactly what is in the tube?

This arab spring thing is just one of Obama’s orchestrated, choreographed and conducted projects in building and consolidating his North African caliphate. Being muslim, he knows exactly what he is doing, and at America’s expense. As a result , we have a Ghazi operating in our White House.
Too many people are blind to this.

Strategically, his goal was to encapsulate Israel. Soon they will take a run at it and if they find it easy going, then they will take another run at America.

Worst part? Obama has a penchant for dictators and “rulers” and the alien/muslim feels the same should be for America. It will be a bitch prying his ass from the White House. I believe he will attempt to hang on to power at any cost.

Obama’s strategy is not pro American, rather the exact opposite/

Wost part? This is our “leader” who has hoodwinked the American people. Now we are at war with our own “leadership”

This is ur Ambassador to the UN.

Overdosed on the Kool-aid.

A video, a poorly made video she blames for all of this BS.

She is either a liar or a frickin lunatic.
Our country and Obama’s administration seem to be filled with frickin lunatics.

There are two options to deal with this mess in the US at our Embassies.
Arm them to the hilt, with Marines , Army, and planes off shore or get the hell out of Dodge.

Of Course Obama will take a third option—he will apologise and send more victims.

I am a woman. Muslim men think this woman and Hillary Clinton are jokes. They think our president is a joke. They have thought for years that our leadership is a joke.

America and Britain project weakness to the world.

Someone needs to remind that lying Bush-blamer that her community organize last year said:
“This has been a remarkable year. The Khadafy regime is over, Gbagbo, Ben Ali, Mubarak are no longer in power. Osama Bin Laden is gone, and the idea that change could only come through violence has been buried with him. Something’s
happening —” Barack Hussein Obama

and her community organizer earlier this year said:
“One of the proudest things of my three years in office is helping to restore a sense of respect for America around the world, a belief that we are not just defined by the size of our military.” - Barack Hussein Obama

No, we are not. However, with hussein at the helm we certainly appear that way and will act that way as long as he is in control. Come on 1/20/13!!!

The mere fact that you have to tell the world that you are not impotent is a clear signal to the world that you no longer have any balls.

Susan is so ignant ~ somebody should pull her out of that job ~ even last year the Egyptian islamofascist mobs were rounding up and killing Coptic Christians on Coptic New Year ~ there was no 14 minute video to raise their ire.

This year Coptic New Year was on 9/11 and there was the Egyptian islamofascist mob ready to go grabbing more Copts and to burn down their churches.

The only way Rice could be oblivious to this would be if she's a stoner ~

Looks like Rice is going to be the scapegoat....she was put there to defend Barry if need be, in the first place. Her pronouncements are embarrassing....the ‘film’ was the catalyst needed for rioting, described as “violent protests”...thugs just love to riot for the camera and for idiots like Susan Rice who is apologizing for this lawlessness. Meanwhile, our Ambassador and others have met their death at the hands of “violent protesters” ....Rice is part of America’s Paper Tiger problem.

Nice summary — I agree, and most of “us” knew this before he was elected. His history and revealing talk gave it all away.

Could not agree more — this is why he MUST be defeated in November. This country’s worst enemy is a domestic one that “lives” in the Oval Office.

And our Congress fiddles while America burns....

IT is too bad that the bulk of America see him as a simple politician.... and not the NEFARIOUS rootsucking/ goat humping/ two faced miscreant that he is!

If he is allowed to get his way, global wars, suffering, proverty are all in the tube; all of a greater magnitude than ever seen by mankind. A strong USA promotes stability, global prosperity, peace and progress. He wants the opposite.

The devil lives in our White House.

“What sparked the violence was a very hateful video on the Internet,” Rice said on “Fox News Sunday.” “It was a reaction to a video that had nothing to do with the United States.”

Rice said “extremists” arrived with heavy weapons, but “we don’t see any signs this was a pre-meditated, pre-planned attack.”

Obama is impotent, at least as a man. He escapes responsibility through being a member of an aggrieved group. The raging Islamists can see what a weak and inept little fool we have leading Western civilization.

WASHINGTON (AP) - America’s ambassador to the United Nations says there’s “no daylight” between the United States and Israel when it comes to stopping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. But Susan Rice also says U.S.-Israeli intelligence indicates that the two nations have “considerable time” before that happens.

Rice tells CNN’s “State of the Union” that economic penalties are working.

Rice says President Barack Obama has been clear that it stands with Israel and “will do what it takes” to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. But, she adds, “we are not at that stage yet.”

http://foxnewsinsider.com/2012/09/16/us-ambassador-susan-rice-maintains-that-anti-american-protests-are-a-direct-result-of-anti-islamic-film/

In regards to the relationship between Israel and the US, Rice said it is “very strong, stronger than ever.” She said that President Obama has been very clear when it comes to Iran in that the US will do whatever it takes to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, adding, “All options remain on the table … and that includes the military option. This is not a policy of containment.”

A top Libyan official says that the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans including Amb. Chris Stevens was “preplanned” and revenge for the US killing of a top Al Qaeda leader. Rice disagrees, saying that it was a reaction to the protests on the US Embassy in Cairo as a consequence of the video. She added, “Obviously, we’ll wait for the results of the investigation and we don’t want to jump to conclusions before then.”

A protégé of Madeleine K. Albright when Ms. Albright was secretary of state, Ms. Rice catapulted over more veteran officials in 1997 when she was given the job as assistant secretary of state. She also has had experience with Al Qaeda — Ms. Rice was the top diplomat for African issues during the 1998 terrorist bombings of embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.

She is married to Ian Cameron, the Canadian-born executive producer of ABC News’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

This arab spring thing is just one of Obama’s orchestrated, choreographed and conducted projects in building and consolidating his North African caliphate.

The impotent Zer0 saw which way the ME wind was blowing, and believed he was being politically clever by hopping on the revolutionary bandwagon in Libya. He and his minions loudly trumpeted the Arab Spring as a great democratic success story, in an effort to claim some of the reflected glory and gain political capital in the US and the ME.

He miscalculated (as lightweights such as himself, who surround themselves with other lightweights, often do).
