UN Ambassador Susan Rice along with President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied about the events surrounding the Benghazi massacre.
One day after the attack, on September 12, 2012, Sec. Clinton said the following: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear — there is no justification for this, none.” She then joined President Obama in taping a television ad apologizing to the Muslim world for the obscure video, spending a reported $70,000 in taxpayer funds on the ad buys.
And then Rice repeated the Benghazi lie, over and over again on every major television news network. Rice’s lies about one of the most significant terrorist attacks since 9/11 are, perhaps, the scandal of the year out of this administration. Little wonder that in his October 2012 testimony Eric Nordstrom, a former a top security official in Libya who was criticized for seeking more security in Benghazi, felt compelled to tell the House Oversight Committee that conversations he had with people in Washington led him to believe that it was “abundantly clear we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. How thin does the ice have to get before someone falls through?”
He said he was so exasperated at one point he told a colleague that “for me the Taliban is on the inside of the building.”
Susan Rice: Lies About Benghazi, Gets Promoted, Then Pitches Syria Solutions.
Susan Rice was promoted to “National Security Adviser” after lying about Benghazi. Today, she is Key Note Speaker, on behalf of the White House, at a New America Foundation Public Event.
Steve Hayes, of the Weekly Standard, made the following comments about Rice in December in an article titled “Benghazi Storytelling:
“The White House has had quite enough of the controversy over ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, the misleading talking points she used in TV interviews about the jihadist attacks in Benghazi, and the Obama administration’s contradictory narrative about those attacks.”
This is where truth and character matter. The left completely dismissed the lack of truth and character by the White House, during the Benghazi cover-up, and attempt to legitimize the lies by asserting that it doesn’t really matter, or by outright ignoring the situation. Today, it’s more clear than ever that Benghazi truly does matter in many ways, the least of which is the pattern of deception was allowed to run rampant into a serious situation even today.
Now, with the carryover of Benghazi still clouding the White House with the stench of lies and death, our nation faces a threat of war with Syria. The woman, Rice, that was responsible for headlining the deception and lies was not only given a free pass for her unwillingness to speak truth on the situation, but she was promoted to National Security Adviser. With zero credibility among people who call for truth and character as their “leaders”, she will stand before the nation to release a mottled together “strategy.”

National Security Adviser Susan Rice:
Last year, Susan Rice shared Ten Worst dishonors with Hillary Clinton for their dual roles in the high-profile campaign to portray the deadly attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, as solely related to a privately produced YouTube video that was offensive to Muslims. On the Sunday following the attack, Rice repeatedly stated on five different network TV news programs that the Benghazi assault had been a spontaneous reaction to an obscure online video mocking Mohammed, rather than a planned terrorist attack.
This year, Rice makes the Ten Worst list all on her own by joining with Barack Obama to add insult to injury by pulling an end-run around the United States Congress. Realizing that after her campaign of deception involving Benghazi, she could not be approved by the Senate for the job of Secretary of State she so clearly coveted, Rice accepted the position of National Security Advisor, which requires no Senate approval. Thus, her duplicity could be rewarded – without the American people having any say whatsoever in the matter.
