It’s not the first time Obama Ambassador Susan Rice skipped an important UN meeting.
She also was absent when the UN held an emergency Security Council meeting on Israel’s raid of a ship headed to Gaza, when Iran was elected to the UN Women’s Commission and failed to speak out when Libya was elected to the UN Human Rights Council in May 2010.
We’re in the best of hands.
The Huffington Post reported:

At great personal risk to himself and his family, Libya’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations, Ibrahim Dabbashi, pushed the UN Security Council to take up the violence in his home country. Dabbashi said he could no longer support the regime of his boss Moammar Gadhafi and stepped out to condemn what he called “a genocide”. The dramatic event prompted the first UN meeting of the 15 member Security Council on the uprisings sweeping across the region since the beginning of Tunisia’s revolution, Egypt’s violence and the developing protests in Bahrain, Yemen, Palestine and Iran.

The United States was represented by Foreign Service officer and Ambassador Rosemary DiCarlo. The Obama administration’s appointed ambassador, Susan Rice, skipped the Libya meeting and instead flew to South Africa to attend a UN panel discussion on global sustainability.

Missing the only Security Council meeting on the Middle East revolution was not Rice’s first absence from high profile UN business. Rice was absent when the UN held an emergency Security Council meeting on Israel’s raid of a ship headed to Gaza and when Iran was elected to the UN Women’s Commission. Rice also failed to speak out when Libya was elected to the UN Human Rights Council in May 2010.

As the Middle East continues to implode the Obama Administration attends a Sustainability Meeting.
Go figure.

  1. Fleebagger disease infects our ambassadors and diplomats.

  2. BO administration….not even bothering to vote present anymore.

    Bring back the mustache guy!

  3. I am sure that Ambassador Rosemary DiCarlo represented us more capablly than Rice would have done. According to her web page at the UN:

    A career member of the Senior Foreign Service, she previously served as U.S. Alternate Representative for Special Political Affairs to the United Nations, and as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the Department of State. Ambassador DiCarlo has also served as the Director for United Nations Affairs at the National Security Council and Washington Deputy to the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations.

    The problem is that Susan Rice has the title, and failure to send the person with the title is a political statement in and of itself.

  4. What does it matter.. The UN will most likely balme Israel for the mess anyway. And this Administration would have nothing of value to contribute anyway..

  5. Being able to represent the United States the way it should be is not important to Barack Obama. That is why he fired John Bolton, one of the best UN ambassadors we have ever had, who didn’t mind sticking up for this nation.

    Instead, Obama used that position to pay off one of his mafia thugs, Susan Rice, who was not appointed on ability but on her level of loyality to our first Marxist president.

    It is frightening to think about how much damage Obama will be able to do to our foreign relations in a short four years.

  6. Stephen Morgan commented:

    “What does it matter.. The UN will most likely balme Israel for the mess anyway. And this Administration would have nothing of value to contribute anyway…”

    You are probably right about this administration having nothing to contribute. The Obama administration appears to afraid to take a position, incompetent, paralyzed, clueless, rudderless, or worse.

  7. And for Barry, it’s time to Partay!

    White House to celebrate Motown with tribute concert

    From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/article/20110216/ENT04/102160391/White-House-to-celebrate-Motown-with-tribute-concert#ixzz1EtRLctMe

  8. ++

    oh come on now.. that is an Obama resume a given..

    never called a meeting of the subcommittee he headed..

    he never attended faculty meetings..

    he wouldn’t attend nukes meeting..

    and i could go on, but i’m sure you get the gist..

    replenish Turtle population, push the UN into the Bay!!

    ==

  9. She didn’t even vote present.

  10. The Obama administration appears to afraid to take a position, incompetent, paralyzed, clueless, rudderless, or worse.

    Worse, much much worse.

  11. The thing about voting present is that you have no policy to to defend leaving critics without a target and claim that you are working behind the teleprompter toward a solution with out revealing who is talking to who or what and how aims might be attained. This is the image he likes to the media that he is above the fray, a colossus astride the world not distacted by petty details. A few platitudes about democracy will be dutyfully reported as profound oratory by our sycophantic media.

  12. This is what leadership is called in the age of Obama. Just don’t show up. Wow, just like the Demonrats in Wisconsin.

  13. I promise you that global sustainibility as related to wealth redistribution are far more important to the commie in chief than stability in the middle east.

  14. So, is BO curled up in a ball under his desk in the oval office? Sucking his thumb?

    Michelle will have to haul him out and Valerie Jarrett will have to give him his marching orders.

  15. This is consistent with the stories breaking this morning that Obama has ties to the Libyan nutjob through “Rev.” Wright and Farrakhan. He will not speak against him for any reason.

    How many folks are dying in Libya each day while our Nero fiddles?

  16. The Huffington Post is criticizing “president” IWonWTF’s UN ambassador? Rice must be on her way to the deep dark hole under the bus.

  17. Oh no he’s not a muslim… want put money on that

  18. Hard to explain a fellow riding his tricycle in circles.
