Here’s a question for you: how do you contend with non-elected civilian leaders who know they’re lying, find comfort in doing so, and have no qualms about continuing to do so?
Such is the case with Obama administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice. As reported by FoxNews.com, Rice said Sunday she has no regrets over what she told the American public about the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks in the immediate aftermath of the deadly strikes.
“What I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best information that we had at the time,” Rice told NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory on Sunday. “The information I provided … was what we had at the moment.” Rice said “No,” when Gregory asked whether she had any regrets about her statements.
Rice continues to lie at a time when the American people know her assertion that “it was the best information we had at the time” is not correct. She weasels around it by saying, “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.”
What was amply demonstrated was the patent absurdity of her claim that anyone in the administration misled the American people. Almost two weeks after the Benghazi Islamic terrorist attack, President Obama stood before the UN General Assembly and still harped on about an anti-Islam video. As well, the question has to be asked, why was Susan Rice chosen to address an issue that was clearly in the purview of the Secretary of State? At the time, Rice was the ambassador to the United Nations, hardly in a position to comment on a terrorist attack against a US Consulate resulting in the death of an American ambassador.
Could it be she was just a loyal lieutenant willing to say and do whatever is asked of her? Could it be she was being set up to take the fall for Hillary Clinton, to preserve the latter’s presidential chances? And as a result, she was rewarded with a promotion to National Security Advisor, a position for which she is totally unqualified — well, I guess that’s par for the course, considering who we have masquerading as Commander-in-Chief.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.”
Her responses should have sent her away from any service to this nation in shame. I can only imagine what would be happening on the pages of the New York Times, Washington Post, and all across the liberal media world if Benghazi occurred under a Republican presidential administration — would they be so cavalier and dismissive?Susan Rice is a liar, who works for a liar who is leading America down the road to perdition. The painful truth will become evident, very soon.
