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.

    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.

    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.

    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:

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

    OBL died years ago and GM is facing bankruptcy, again. Whoever our great SEALs were sent to kill, it was not OBL. No one survives in renal failure as long as he supposedly did living a third world existence. This was probably someone who posed as OBL to encourage his followers. No body, no DNA, no nada. Prove to me it was OBL.

    Oh puh-leeze. There was no investigation needed as everyone in this regime knew what went down. What, preezy Barry needs an investigation to find out just what he did when our people were being slaughtered? Go out, lie and keep lying until everyone believes the lie.

    Like Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice’s ambition passed up her intelligence about 100 points ago.

    The biggest failures in foreign policy are liberal women and the the small men who hide behind their pantsuits.

    Who cares about Americans slaughtered by terrorists, or Mexican drug runners, in both instances with weapons purchased by taxpayers? And covered up by the Obama regime.

    Taxpayers–patriots–care. The Producer class does not need the parasite class. The parasites only care about getting healthcare, phones, food, education, and housing paid for by the Producers. You heard harpy–no big deal who gets killed, I just want my free stuff.

    When it all implodes, there will be a huge reversal of suffering in this nation. A suffering long overdue.

    Letting Us Down: GOP Losing Susan Rice Debate


    While Republicans are off licking their wounds or just taking a break after an exhausting campaign, the Left and the media are not. And as a result, the GOP is currently getting its butt kicked all over the place.

    Everywhere now, online, print media, and on cable nets like CNN and MSNBC, the false Narrative is flourishing that Republicans oppose Rice because she’s black and a woman. The media doesn’t care one whit that Republicans wholeheartedly backed Condi Rice (who is black and a woman) for Secretary of State, because this is about politics, not truth.

    At his post-election news conference last week, Barack Obama vigorously defended Susan Rice, and now the media is following suit, because the media sees its job as to never-ever-ever allow this president to fail. The media also learned that false accusations of racism and sexism against Republicans helped win Obama a second term, so why not use that winning tactic to help Obama win everything?

    Where are you, Republicans?




    If we’ve learned nothing from the beating we just took, it’s that, regardless of how dishonest or outrageous, media Narratives that go unanswered stick to us. Moreover, anyone familiar with Jay Leno’s “Jaywalking” knows that no one is going to remember that one Secretary of State under the last Republican president was black, and the other a black woman.


    READ ON.

  • Patty

    I have had enough of the nonsense coming from an administration that just can’t be honest and truthfully, they don’t know what the h they are doing.

    Obama dipped a toe into the water and I do believe he now has to go all in and start explaining to the families why their sons were denied three times help. If republican president had covered up and was in denial that this was a terrorist attack he or she would be beaten to a pulp by the Bias Media and the left.

    I am still amazed how Obama can get a laugh, look presidential and still have a job. He was a community organizer, with sub par grades in College and then a senator who won with questions to this day how he did that one. His past actions were less than exemplary and yet, con so many, with so little other than a teleprompter. AMAZING, GREAT GIG IF YOU MANAGE TO FOOL THE MASSES. AND HE DID.

    So, he runs Rice out to media to do a man’s job. That is another goof on us. And he is just going along with no dust on his suit. NOW WHO, WHO WILL BE THE FALL GUY OR GIRL.

    Obama would throw anyone under the bus at this point.

    And what did she “absolutely believe?” The video doesn’t show that. Surprise, surprise.

    Here’s the transcript:
    WALLACE: This week, there have been anti-American protests in two dozen countries across the Islamic world. The White House says it has nothing to do with the president’s policies.

    Let’s watch.


    JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: This is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy. This is in response to a video that is offensive.


    WALLACE: You don’t really believe that?

    jharp can’t compute the lying exhibited in the promotion of the video as the cause of death of four Americans, due to his/her not caring and yawning. Exactly what his/her messiah was counting on for his re-election and strikingly similar to the messiah’s response to four people being left to die without available protection.

    Well it is a shame we don’t have smarter people on the right. They are pathelic. Susan Rice said what the CIA told her to say because of they didn’t want classified info out there. CIA admitted that. Wake up people. I never seen so many inteliigence experts on the right.

    One question I have for you was where in the hell were you people when Bush,Cheney and Rove was telling everyone about WMD’s in Iraq. They doctored up the intelligence reports and sent poor Powell to the UN and lied to the world. This lied resulted in over 100,000 civilians dying including women and children and over 3000 military personnel at a cost of two trillion dollars. Where in the hell was the the right then. Hiding under a damn rock and now they come out and criticize Rice when Condoleeza Rice went on TV and lied by telling the world that they had WMD’s.

    Iraqi WMD Debate and Intelligence: the Links to Libya

    [Anaysis. By Gregory R. Copley, Editor, GIS. Discussion and analysis of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs relating to the former Iraqi Administration of Pres. Saddam Hussein has seriously — and virtually from the beginning — missed the point. By focusing entirely on Iraqi WMD programs within the physical borders of Iraq, and by refusing to discuss contextual issues, the arguments missed the point that the bulk of the Iraqi WMD work since 1991 was conducted outside the borders of the country, this being a result of the lesson which Saddam derived from the 1991 Coalition war against him.

    There is a very substantial, historical chain of intelligence — much of which has been cited and verified by Global Information System (GIS) HUMINT sources over the past 14 years and some of which has been verified by external sources — resoundingly confirming this position, which can be summarized as follows:

    1. Documents Moved to Syria: In essence, documentation of that small portion of the WMD program which was administered directly in Iraq was moved, along with other sensitive material and resources, to the Hshishi Compound at al-Qamishli (Kamishli) in Syria, just near the Iraqi border, in August-September 2002. This was noted by GIS at that time.1

    2. R&D Conducted in Libya: The great bulk of the work on WMD and on associated missile delivery systems, however, was conducted since 1991 in a partnership with Libya, and also with Egypt, at facilities in Libya, in order to keep the programs away from US and United Nations (UN) probes. That, too, was noted by GIS.2]
