National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, who made a name for herself when she went out and lied to 5 networks the Sunday after the Benghazi attacks about an imaginary protest, lashed out at Israel on her Twitter page. The challenged Obama official blasted Israel for criticizing Secretary of State John Kerry.
Personal attacks in Israel directed at Sec Kerry totally unfounded and unacceptable.

Susan Rice, U.S. President Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor, blasted Israel on Monday over its criticism of Secretary of State John Kerry’s threats of a boycott should peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA) fail.
In a series of posts on her Twitter accounts, Rice said, “Personal attacks in Israel directed at Sec Kerry totally unfounded and unacceptable.”
“John Kerry’s record of support for Israel’s security and prosperity rock solid,” she wrote, adding, “POTUS and Sec Kerry remain committed to negotiations that can secure Israeli and Palestinian futures.”
Her last tweet read, “U.S. Govt [sic] has been clear and consistent that we reject efforts to boycott or delegitimize Israel.”
Rice’s comments are the latest in a series of American replies to Israeli officials who criticized Kerry for his threats at the Munich Security Conference this weekend, and come just hours after State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters that Kerry was “frustrated” by suggestions that he’s anti-Israel.
“Secretary Kerry himself personally has a proud record of over three decades of steadfast support for Israel’s security and well-being, including staunch opposition to boycotts,” said Psaki.
