A History of Ineptitude… Susan Rice Thwarted Attempts to Capture Bin Laden – Was Bystander to Rwandan Genocide

Ambassador Susan Rice, who famously blamed the Benghazi terrorist strike on a YouTube video, has a long history of ineptitude.
It’s not a surprise then that Barack Obama thinks so highly of her.

Samantha Power – Susan Rice – President Obama (Conservative Treehouse)

Black Is Right discovered this in a CNN article published in 2008.

President-Elect Barack Obama has picked Dr. Susan Rice to be the new United Nations Ambassador. Rice served as Bill Clinton’s Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs and later worked as foreign policy advisor to John Kerry and John Edwards during their 2004 presidential campaign. Terrorism experts blame Rice for having played a key role in blocking efforts to neutralize Osama bin Laden in the 1990s.

According to Mansoor Ijaz, a former trouble shooter for Clinton, the FBI had their efforts to capture bin Laden “overruled every single time by the State Department, by Susan Rice and her cronies, who were hell-bent on destroying the Sudan.” In a Washington Post Op-Ed published in 2002, Mansoor Ijaz and Tim Carney, U.S. Ambassador to Sudan blamed Susan Rice for being a major obstacle to accepting offers of help from Sudan and to share their intelligence on bin Laden’s terror network.

Rice was also influential in the Clinton Administration’s remaining uninvolved in the Rwandan genocide that took place in that nation in 1994. The Atlantic (September 2001) published an article by Samantha Power titled: “Bystanders to Genocide,” and outlined Rice’s role in the do-nothing policy of the Clinton Administration.

Of course, Democrats will say this is just a racist attempt to smear the ambassador.

Kevin Martin at Breitbart has more on Susan Rice’s embarrassing record.

    Everyone in this vile administration is an enemy within. More than the destruction of our economy, is their intent to destroy our military:

    I think we need a little Marxist bloodletting

  • It’s not ineptitude, it’s on purpose – the agenda – it’s who they are – the entire administration.

    ICR2P – The International Coalition For The Responsibility To Protect ……… And it’s spun-off ‘green’ setup, ICLEI – The International Coalition For Local Environmental Initiatives.

    These people are not liberals, not Socialists, not even Communists — They are Totalitarians, nothing less.


    The’ve had decades to get where they are now and with every hour, they build……… Build impenetrable walls around freedom’s core.

    Wake up.


    Stop with the ‘incompetence’ talk.

    On the positive side, she’s black.

    For Democrats, identity politics trumps competence.

    Samanth Power’s evil countenance has finally been captured on film. She’s the “behind the scene” communist in the Administration. What a bunch of snakes!

    If any journalist would dig deep, well, just a few inches into the background of Obama, we wouldn’t be here in the first place.

    Remember that it was Susan Rice who claimed, back in April, that Gaddafi “supplies troops with Viagra to encourage mass rape.” Other diplomats were said to view this claim with scepticism. No kidding!

    BTW, Viagra is NOT an aphordisiac. It merely facilitates blood flow to the penis.

    This is a woman whose fanatical ideological beliefs blind her to reality. Further, in her own mind, anything she says or does is morally justifiable because of the rightness of her cause.

    The woman is morally and psychologically unfit to be in any position in government, let alone Sec. of State.

    The top most crystallized moments of the whole Benghazi story that should almost choke up any American… 1. Rice’s misleading the American people on not one but 5 Sunday talk shows…….. 2. Obama’s misleading the whole world community on video and attacks on Benghazi, Libya…… 3. The time during the attack that the prez and his team DID NOTHING and let those poor people just die without trying to help. — Probably nothing illegal?, but such a breathtaking eyeopener. Don’t let it go, it has got to get out!

    If Susan Rice stopped the Clinton Administration from going after Bin Laden, as far as I’m concerned she has the blood of 2963 people on her hands due to his being able to plan and execute 9/11/01.

  • DecentAmerican

    Racist, racist, racist!!! So sick of the race card crap the racist Dems toss around! Problem is, a lot of stupid Anericans believe that narrative, and fail to recognize that the Dems are the party of hate, the KKK, Jim Crow laws. Will any conservative with balls stand up and continually remind the stupid corrupt meda Bout this? Rush? Coulter? Laura? Anyone?..

    We are losing this battle of propaganda and lies.

    Obama’s Top Ten Alternative Ways to Tax Rich People

    Republicans are threatening to actually not cave in to President Obama’s demand that they increase income tax rates for the high income earners.

    Recognizing the peril of heading over the Fiscal Cliff, the White House has drawn up a secret list of taxes it will agree to that subtly target the wealthy and that would be acceptable to the president. These items, White House officials believe, could form the basis of a deal.

    What follows are, culled form a more extensive list, the top ten secret White House ideas for raising revenues from the rich.

    They include new taxes on . . .

    1. Spanish lessons taken to improve communication with the housekeeper.

    2. Purchases of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.

    3. Anyone who has stayed at a hotel where Michelle Obama has vacationed.

    4. Anyone who plays golf regularly without taxpayers picking up the tab for chauffeured transportation via motorcade to and from the golf course.

    5. Anyone who voted for Jon Huntsman.

    6. Purchases of folk music by people who are not folks.

    7. Anyone named Sheldon Adelson.

    8. Anyone who says “yes” in a restaurant when asked if they’d prefer bottled instead of tap.

    9. Any meal that includes a palate cleanser.

    10. Anyone who runs a profitable small business and uses a government-paved road to get to it each day.


    Are there any other such tax proposals that you are aware of?

    rice is ever bit as incompetent as Shrillary – who for years praised syria’s mass-murdering thug assad as a “reformer.”

    I totally agree with Kenny Solomon’s post. He says, “It’s not ineptitude, it’s on purpose – the agenda – it’s who they are – the entire administration.” In a nutshell!

    I would never have known she is black if the media hadn’t told me. I s she 1/32nd black?
    So, my dislike of her is not racist.

  • Bob

    I have to question further just what is the agenda of Susan Rice. Lord help us if she becomes the next SOS for America. Along with her boss B. Hussein doing his endless apology tour, I can only suggest that she and Obama want America to be under UN laws and govern accordingly.

  • another “super competent” leftover from the clinton administration.

    clinton is a marxist just like his wife and they started the marxist takeover of our government by slipping all these leftists into their administration.

    like kenny solomon said what these people do is intentional not incompetentence. it is a marxist’s job to destroy the existing order. that is the reason they are in government to have the power to destroy this country. once they have done that then they can make it into a marxist worker paradise like russia, cuba, china, north korea, vietnam, like all of eastern europe used to be.

    # 18 Sablegsd:
    It would appear that the term black applies to anyone who claims “blackness” and who has even the slightest of negroid features. This allows them to claim victimhood. (Back in the old South they called this the ‘one drop rule’.)
    To put it another way our racial laws are tighter than the Nazi’s Nurenberg decrees, where you could be 1/8 Jewish and still escape a trip to the camps.
    Now, 1/16th. African heritage gets you affirmative action privileges. Or even 1/42, if your name is Liz Warren. The left in this country has simply inverted the cost benefit ratio. Anyone without that precious 1/16 is a racist.

    It won’t matter who is elected in 2016. The USA will be gone by then unless we get Divine Intervention…

    ‘When Obama Goes to Hell,’ GOP Official Says, He’ll Claim ‘This Is All Bush’s Fault’

    Here’s another sterling example of the premise that liberals have no sense of humor.

    Virginia Republican Official Bob FitzSimmonds had no idea what was going to happen when he stated in a Facebook posting on Wednesday that “When Obama is 90 years old and he dies and goes to Hell, he is going to say ‘This is all Bush’s fault!”

    Of course, members of the GOP instantly recognized the post as a joke referring to the claim often made by the president and his fellow Democrats that everything bad that happened during Obama’s first term was the fault of the previous occupant of the White House, Republican George W. Bush.

    As you might expect, the comment drew heated responses from both sides of the political aisle on that social networking site.

    Ben Marchi said that the remark was “completely inappropriate” even when made in jest, and Karen Hand Mason noted that whether or not Obama goes to Hell is “God’s decision.”

    “This is a good example of how far our country has gone,” wrote Muneer Baig. “People have been so blinded by politics that they are treating themselves as Gods and passing judgment over others.

    “May God help us and our country and help us to see beyond the fake walls we have ourselves created around us,” he added.

    However, William J. Henderson Jr. said that the Republican official was being “charitable” in giving Obama 90 years to live and thought the original post was “a funny joke.”

    Don’t bother reading The Atlantic story for quotes about S. Rice. There are only two, and the first one is disputed.

    The money quote,
    Susan Rice, Clarke’s co-worker on peacekeeping at the NSC, also feels that she has a debt to repay. “There was such a huge disconnect between the logic of each of the decisions we took along the way during the(Rwanda) genocide and the moral consequences of the decisions taken collectively,” Rice says. “I swore to myself that if I ever faced such a crisis again, I would come down on the side of dramatic action, going down in flames if that was required.”

    Susan Rice is eminently qualified to be Obama’s Secretary of State. They are cut out of the same far left cloth. She has the blood of many Americans and so many Rwandans on her hands they labeled it a genocide. What better qualifications could she have for this particular Administration. Obama’s policy of domestic destruction can then be expanded to the whole world to spread his fundamental changes to everybody. May God forgive the ignorant people who voted for him.

  • doc

    She’s the female equalivalent of Joe Biden, another great pick by the amateur in charge.

    “Genocide Rice”

    I think that’s an appropriate moniker for her. Use it ALWAYS. Every passing mention of her should note her role in the genocide.
