Just try to wrap your arms around the magnitude of defiance and chutzpah that led to and accompanied President Obama’s appointment of the discredited Susan Rice as national security adviser. But don’t let this outrage distract you from his equally disturbing appointment of leftist Samantha Power to replace Rice as UN ambassador.
Though Democrats and their supporting liberal media, with a few notable exceptions, have aggressively downplayed the multifaceted Benghazi scandal, none of them has laid a glove on the irrefutable claim that Rice delivered talking points altered by the administration to distort the facts in order to mitigate any damage to Obama’s reelection efforts.
In December, Rice withdrew her name from consideration for secretary of state because “the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly.” Yes, because there was no way she was going to be confirmed after mouthing lies to the American people about the cause of the attacks on our embassy in Libya that resulted in the murder of four Americans.
In a piece for the Washington Post explaining her decision to withdraw, Rice did everything but acknowledge her wrongdoing. She said, “I have never sought in any way, shape or form to mislead the American people. … Even before I was nominated for any new position, a steady drip of manufactured charges painted a wholly false picture of me.”
