Susan Rice Proves She’s an Unthinking Idiot – Doubles Down on Benghazi Lies

Art M.

Five days after the terrorist attacks at the American Consulate in Benghazi on 9-11, Barack Obama sent out Ambassador Susan Rice to mislead the American public about the deadly attack.

Susan Rice said the attack was a spontaneous protest over an obscure YouTube video. Yet anyone with the least bit of common sense understood that this was inaccurate. Protesters don’t carry RPG’s with them to YouTube protests.

Today Ambassador Rice doubled down on her previous nonsensical statements.
Yahoo reported:

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, defended on Wednesday her remarks after a September attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to the North African nation.

“When discussing the attacks against our facilities in Benghazi I relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community,” Rice told reporters at the United Nations.

“I made clear that the information provided to me was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers,” said Rice, who is seen as a possible nominee to replace U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

And the charade continues.

** According to Rep. Nunoz, we now know the Obama Administration was lying from the beginning.

    If there is a disaster there she is right behind it.

    She is so arrogant to admit that she lied to the american people.

    Nobody cares.

    You lost the election. Let it go and try offering something constructive.

    First and foremost. This attack happened on 9/11/12. All would believe that our embassies and here at home Federal Buildings would be on high elect.

    Now, to the finer point, Ambassador was killed along with 3 other brave Americans. Statements should never have been made until the President was fully informed and until that time, we would wait until all i’s are dotted and all t’s are crossed.

    If we have so many departments in our government giving out different information this would definitely give us pause. What would happen if we were attacked at home. Would there be this much confusion and lies. And if our intelligence is so weak to lie and send out a UN Ambassador who has nothing to do with Terror attacks and not the President himself then we look weaker and those who attacks us feel more embolden.

    We or at least me and the families of the dead are looking for the truth and now it seems no one is looking seriously other then possibly republicans.

    I can say with such anger that this cover up and chaos has been directed by Obama himself. We may never get to the bottom of this until he is out of office and even then I wonder.
    Scary to think that all intelligence has been so broken, sure there are some who know the truth but chaos, cover and confusion keeps churning.

  • Patty

    Shameful just how incendiary, evil and completely moronic liberals are when it comes to attacks on our U.S. Embassy on 9/11/12. Doesn’t seem to be important when UN Ambassador and 3 other Americans are killed.

    I would love to see who and what they appreciate in their petty lives. Because had it been one of their love ones you can bet the farm, they would want to get to the bottom of this.

    Sick of the insensitivity of the liberals pathetic little mind.

  • Patty

    This administration tell lies like we tell the truth. They just have no conscience at all. Who among us from year one believed in Obama care. We knew from the beginning it was a farce. And who among us believe that Holder could skate out of Fast and Furious.

    I don’t think we will ever recovery until this nation’s leadership starts telling America the truth. Heartbreak and heartache is what the victims families are feeling. Their sons and daughters protect and then die. When this happens and there isn’t explanation but lies what did they die for anyway.

    Oh, we can say it was for our freedom, of course but I hope that you understand that if the lies, attacks and cover-ups continue, I repeat, we will not be the Best we can be.

    Her act is getting embarrassing . It kind of reminds me of this:

    Thanks for coming Sue!

  • jharp

    Patty. It was a terror attack. And a terrible tragedy that 4 were killed.

    What it isn’t is a scandal or a coverup. That is the nonsense that no one cares about.

    Again, try offering something constructive instead of nonstop whining and complaining.

    “Who among us from year one believed in Obama care. ”

    Me. Big fan of ObamaCare. And dig the latest, insurance companies will have to cover dental and optical for children.

    Let me guess. You’d rather children couldn’t see and had rotting teeth other than find anything positive about ObamaCare?

    Regardless Of Who Wins On Tuesday, Benghazigate Is Not Going Away

    White House Denied Knowing Consulate Requested Security

    One of the most ironic and inexcusable aspects of the fatal Benghazi tragedy is that Ambassador Stevens was denied the modest protection he requested. Yet remarkably, Joe Biden claimed during the vice presidential debate that the administration was unaware of those requests, claiming: “We weren’t told they wanted more security, we did not know they wanted more security.” So if the State Department knew, and certainly the CIA did as well, then why didn’t anyone bother to tell them?

    During the debate, Representative Paul Ryan accused the Obama administration of having an “unraveling” foreign policy, pointing particularly to “the larger failures of the administration to be completely transparent about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi and the security situations leading up to the attacks.” He rhetorically asked Biden, “This was Libya…a country we knew had al-Qaeda cells. And we did not give our ambassador in Benghazi a marine detachment?”

    Ambassador Stevens had very good reasons to ask the State Department in August for an additional 11 security personnel to be added to the rotation of 24 to replace temporary security staff. There had been many attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. In April, two Libyans threw improvised explosive devices into the consulate compound. In June, postings on a pro-Gaddafi Facebook page encouraged Libyans to attack Ambassador Stevens during one of his early morning runs around Tripoli. And in the weeks leading up to September 11th, Libyan guards were being warned by their family members to quit their consulate jobs because of rumors about an impending attack.

    It is now evident that al-Qaeda recently hit four, not just one, embassies, with none of the other three ever attributable to a video either. The Weekly Standard reports that in addition to the American Consulate in Libya, terrorists tied to the same group that attacked our homeland on 9/11 were also behind U.S. Embassy sieges in Egypt, Tunisia, and Yemen. All were timed around the 9/11 anniversary.

    Administration Ordered Attack Responders to Stand Down

    A most disturbing issue revolves around conflicting accounts regarding requests and denials of military aid…support which might have saved American lives during that fateful seven-hour-long assault. According to a Fox News report by Jennifer Griffin, former Navy Seals Ty Woods and Glen Doherty (who were later killed), were ordered to stand down three times following calls for help during the attack.

    The first two times occurred soon after they heard initial shots fired, informed higher-ups at the CIA annex, and requested permission to go to the consulate to help out. However, they ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate, which by that time was on fire. The rescue team then returned to the CIA annex about midnight after evacuating those who remained at the consulate and retrieving the body of Sean Smith. They had not succeeded in locating Ambassador Stevens.

    Read on at site. And thank God this isn’t going away.

    Four Dead Americans. Now, waiting for answers and so our the families of the massive cover-up.

    Victims of Ft. Hood are still waiting for this Administration to call it an Act of Terror.

    OBL is dead and GM is thriving. Big talk just before the 9/11 attack. They just can’t bring themselves to say Al Qaeda lives.

    Oh, the ignorance of the liberal mind.

    The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Cap, which will begin in 2013, is perhaps the most hurtful provision to the middle class. This part of the law imposes a cap of $2,500 per year (which is now unlimited) on the amount of pre-tax dollars that could be deposited into these accounts. Why is this particularly hurtful to the middle class? It is because funds in these accounts may be used to pay for special needs education for special needs children in the United States. Tuition rates for this type of special education can easily exceed $14,000 per year and the use of pre-tax dollars has helped many middle income families.

    Another direct hit to the middle class is the Medical Itemized Deduction Hurdle which is currently 7.5% of adjusted gross income. This is the hurdle that must be met before medical expenses over that hurdle can be taken as a deduction on federal income taxes. Obamacare raises this hurdle to 10% of adjusted gross income beginning in 2013. Consider the middle class family with $80,000 of adjusted gross income and $8,000 of medical expenses. Currently, that family can get some relief from being able to take a $2,000 deduction (7.5% X $80,000 = $6,000; $8,000 –$6,000 = $2,000). An increase to 10% would eliminate the deduction in this example and if that family was paying a 25% federal tax rate, the real cost of that lost deduction would be $500.

    The fifth new tax on the middle class, and all Americans, is the Health Savings Account (HSA) Withdrawal Tax Hike. This provision increases the additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10% currently to 20% beginning in 2013. This provision actually sets these accounts apart from Investment Retirement Accounts (IRAs) and other tax advantaged accounts, all of which remain with a 10% early withdrawal tax.[………………..]

    Then (from the video): Chris Wallace asked Rice: “you don’t really believe that do you?” and Rice answered “I absolutely believe that”

    Get that? Rice said:

    “I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that””I absolutely believe that”

    Now: “I made clear that the information provided to me was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers”

    Ms Rice, were you telling the truth on EITHER day?
